“Perfect location, clean and comfortable”

person found this review helpful

At first we were bummed that we couldn't get a place in the Cinque Terre, but staying here was perfect and we all agreed that if we went back we would stay in La Spezia again. It is a great little town with tons of eateries and shops to explore. The waterfront is a 5-10 minute walk from this apartment and the train station about the same. There is a cute little cafe right downstairs where we had cofffee and yummy Nutella pastries every morning we stayed (we were there 3 nights) and the staff there was so warm and friendly. The apartment is clean and modern and we felt very comfortable. The beds are fold out as someone else mentioned, and not top notch so if you are sensitive then this might not be the spot for you. Also, there are TONS of dogs in this town and with the apartment being on the main drag, you will hear lots of dogs barking and people having fun in the street throughout the night. We were always so tired from adventures during the day that it was okay and we also used earplugs. We met the owner and he was very gracious and friendly. They do expect payment in cash so be prepared with cash on hand. For the price, I think it is a great place to stay and would definitely rent again!

“Good location, spacious but can do with some attention to detail”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Very well located in centre of La Spezia, easily accessible from the train station and the harbour.
We used the one room apartment that was equipped with a sleeper couch as its double bed (contrary to the double bed as advertised on website). The sleeper couch was the uncomfortable type you provide to people you do not want to stay long.
The expected street noise required the windows to be closed at night to get some rest, but unfortunately the air conditioner could not be used due to the remote control being locked away and then not working when eventually supplied on request.
If you do not mind using the same linen and towels for a week, buy a lighter before you can make coffee on the gas stove, and do not mind dead light bulbs, this is the place to stay.

Dear Mr. Dupreez,

we would like to thank-you for your stay that we thought you enjoyed until we read your review on Flipkey.
The day I met you, you seemed quite satisfied of our apartment and we had a very pleasant half an hour talk during which I give you suggestions and details on different issues.
As regards to the wrong light bulb you said it was not a problem to go back to the shop and change it for me, otherwise I would have changed it the following day, being the shop already closed at that time.
I left you with the idea that you were very satisfied and I told you that for any reason you could have contacted me.
Regarding the remote control we did not realize that batteries were dead, not having been used for a while, but if we knew we would have solved the problem
As regards to the double-bed sofa, it was bought 2 years ago and we invested on high quality being the main double bed. It is not at all a budget one and it is the first time we have claims on this regard.
Regarding bed linen, before booking you received our e-mail saying:” The daily cost for 2 people in the period required is Euro 65 including all the expenses and a weekly change of the bed linen”.
If we knew you had different necessities we could have made one change in betweeen.
From your review our apartment and service sound of poor quality, while on the contrary, we have done all our best to offer a comfortable and nice location giving a good service, at least up to now appreciated.
Thanking you in advance for your understanding,
Best regards,
Patrizia

“Great Location, bit noisy until midnight and an lackadaisical hostess”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We loved our stay at La Spezia. The owners of the restaurant/bar below our flat were so friendly. They were a good part of our holiday. The flat was well furnished and clean. However my wife had to request an iron/board which was provided with some reluctance. There was no kettle or electric jug and to prepare a cup of tea we had to use pans on a gas stove. There was no washing machine and there was no change of towels/linen over our eight days stay. There was no laundrymat that we could find. We had no idea where the supermarkets were and there was no information on nearby restaurants. The hostess was nice enough but was in too much of a hurry to get away when she at last visited us, and lots of our questions were left unanswered.
We were informed that power was expensive and could we please be careful and she was keen on contacting us by texting rather than talking on the phone.
