“good location for Cinque Terre”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

Cinque Terre is a hiking 3 day hiking holiday, or a 1 day mad rush off a cruise ship. If you are not in the been-there-done-that tourist crowd, this sleepy town offers the best location along the Cinque Terre by boat or train. Short distances to several town north, south and east of La Spezia as the train station is a hub to all the non visited villages around it. Hotel is clean, staff very helpful, and breakfast very good before the start of each walking day.

Reception was good but room barely adequate. Bar area is a corridor and restaurant would make a railway buffet look inviting - cheerless!! WiFi cannot be made to work - despite the efforts of the reception staff - who are brilliant. Rooms are a throwback to the 80's and having used this brand extensively in the Netherlands I have to say I was surprised and shocked. It is probably good values considering you are in a very popular seaside resort and the marina facing rooms are great - esp on the 7th floor such as our was. Very dated and needs some (a lot) of work.

Room Tip: If you stay here try to get one one of the higher rooms looking over the marina.

We did not plan on staying in La Spezia. We were pleasantly surprised to walk in, get a room at a reasonable price, and get help with everything from parking to planning our next destination. The staff was courteous and spoke English, the breakfast was very large. The hotel was clean and offered free wi-fi, to store our bags after check out, and had a large clean bathroom for use right in the lobby. A solid stay for a solid price.

Reviewed 5 November 2012

The hotel is ok.. our room faced the harbour, but could only see out the windows when you're standing.. Room was average size for Europe, bathroom a little pokey, but ok. Hot & cold buffet brekkie, which can get busy as this hotel is popular for walkers on tour buses. For us we relied on public transport.

Our main reason for staying was to access Cinque Terre, and from this hotel it is not straightforward. You can walk down to the harbour and catch a ferry to Portovenere, and from there if the weather is ok.. you can access the five villages one by one; the timetable is limited (and seasonal), and one of our days they had rough seas, so the ferry only went to Portovenere and Monterosso (as they have established jetties); it is not cheap either $25Euro. You can catch a train from La Spezia station.. You could walk from the hotel to the station, about 30 mins (fast walk) or we caught a bus from the square around the corner from the hotel. The trains stop at all stations and run about 1-2 times an hour. We caught the ferry to Monterosso which takes 2 hours, and then caught the train back stopping at the various villages.

To appreciate Cinque Terre, you must see it from the sea. But I won't stay at La Spezia & not here at this hotel.. There isn't many eating options in this part of town either. Stay at one of the villages, Monterosso is the biggest, and if you catch the train from Milan or Pisa, most stop there. Staying there you can easy access the ferry and see the villages from the sea, and the local trains stop at all the villages. Don't stay at this hotel, if you do want to stay at La Spezia, stay closer to the train station, but again, not a lot of eating options in this town.

What you see in the web page is not what you get when you just get in the front street. Nobody is there to attend the baggages, they don't even have a ramp to get the lobby.
The hotel doesn't have A/C or is not working properly. The attention is disgusting, the overall hotel atmosphere is horrible, not to mention the bathroom problems !
I had to open the window to get some fresh air, then the noise of traffic was horrible.
I am here today when writing this review and suffering this mess !

Room Tip: Dont go there....
