Hotel Firenze e Continentale La Spezia

Reviewed 31 May 2012

The Hotel Firenze e Continentale is an excellent place to stay in La Spezia. The room was spacious, bathroom large (except for the shower - no fatties would fit) and the breakfasts excellent. The staff were also very obliging and helpful particularly the breakfast lady who wished everyone 'bon giorgno' on arrival and the reception staff good. Location nearby the La Spezia Central also a big plus for train users.

Getting to the hotel was an adventure since Garmin doesn't seem up to date with the one-way street directions, but after several detours we arrived and were greeting by a helpful, courteous staff. Rooms are nice sized and the bathroom we had was long and narrow but with nice tile and fixtures. The windows open and have shutters and the rooms are quiet. We were visiting Cinque Terre and the train station is directly across the street. There are several excellent restaurants in the streets around the hotel but don't miss the buffet breakfast, it's great! The food is fresh and varied and the coffee is the best I've ever had. If you drive a car be sure and tell them while checking in, they have several reserved spots in the covered parking and they have in-out privileges. It's a classy old fashion hotel where you leave you key at the desk when not in your room - and that's the only strange thing, the key must be used to lock/unlock the door from BOTH sides. If you are a couple in the room you better plan to leave at the same time or have whoever stays in the room lock you out. But we would definitely stay here again and recommend this jewel to all.

Room Tip: As in most hotels in old buildings the lift fits one person with luggage - get a room on a lower flo...

Dear guest,
thank you very much for your so positive review of our hotel! I’m very pleased you enjoyed your stay and I thank you for your kind words about the hotel, the staff and our buffet breakfast! It’s typical in Italy to leave the keys in the front office; we have decided to do it also because we prefer to keep in touch with the guests every day and not only at check in and check out; that would be impossible with an anonymous magnetic key. Thanking you again, we really hope to welcome you back again!

A 4-star facility in a 3-star package! Beautifully appointed accommodation, friendly and helpful staff, excellent breakfast (included), extremely convenient location only steps from the train station. Would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: On a slightly picky note, we stayed in Room 145 on the fourth floor, and traffic on the street below...

The Hotel Firenze has been a great stay for us. Just diagonally to the left as you exit the station. The hotel is very well maintained and has a nice atmosphere and feel.
We stayed in one of the mid range rooms and it was the largest room we have had in 3 weeks of travel. The bathroom was a good size, well appointed and appeared to have been renovated relatively recently. We found the bed comfortable - so much so that we slept late every morning of our stay! Oh well, we are on holiday!
Breakfast was good and served on the top floor at the back with a pleasant view over the hills.
Staff were pleasant and helpful and particularly patient with one large group who were being quite demanding as they were checking in for their one night.
The only thing that could have added to our stay would have been free WiFi in rooms instead of just in the downstairs area, but downstairs is better than nothing!
All in all a great stay and a hotel I would happily come back to or recommend to friends.

We stayed here because we couldn't get a place in Cinque Terre. As it turned out, I am glad we did. The hotel is very nice, the rooms are large, the beds are comfortable, the bathroom is good size and very nice. A good breakfast is included. The location is great, two blocks from the train station. One day we took a forty minute bus ride to Portovenere and hiked to Campiglia. The next day we took a train to Riomaggiore, hiked to Manarola, hopped on the train to Monerosso walked around for a while, had a late lunch and grabbed a train back to La Spezia.

Positives:
Good Location close to the train station
Good Location for day trips in the area
Nice rooms
Good Beds
Good Bathroom
Good Breakfast
Free Internet

Negatives:
La Spezia has lots of coffee bars, but not very many restaurants

I would recommend this hotel.
