2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2013 via mobile

We had four nights here and it was very convenient to the train to the cinque terre towns which were beautiful. Breakfast was ok and staff were very helpful and friendly, the bathrooms were small but hey how long are you in the bathroom? Overall we were satisfied with this hotel.

Stayed November 2012, travelled as a couple

Excellent for a 3 star hotel. Across the street from the train station for the Cinque Terre. Very nice breakfast room and breakfast. Friendly and accommodating front desk. Small, but clean room. The best place to stay a day trip to the Cinque Terre

We chose this hotel, as we're are any travelers before us did - because of it's location right across the road from the La Spezia train station - the gateway to La Cinque Terre.
Staff were super friendly and helpful, and our room spacious and clean.
Breakfast was a feast and it's location on the top floor with a balcony was great.
The walk along La Cinque Terre coast put our fitness levels to the test on a hot day, and so a nice hotel close to the station at the end of the day was just we needed!

Of course like most people, we chose this hotel for it's location to the train station into La Spezia and the local train to the Cinque Terre villages. My husband & I were there in September 2012 and found the staff very accommodating, recommending restaurants and safe places to walk at night and places to avoid. I cannot agree with LadyDoGa's review on so many levels. Let's face it, you are on holiday and aren't likely to be spending much time in your room. As you have said, the room was simple but clean, they were more than adequate. We stayed in several hotels in our 4 weeks away and it seems to be standard practice to hand the key back to reception when you leave for the day. So why was this such a drama? My advice is that next time you book a hotel, please read the accommodation facilities before booking and writing a review running down the hotel if you are disappointed. We would definately recommend this hotel for a short stay to visit the Cinque Terre. Happy travels.

Room Tip: There's nothing to compare. We were exhausted at the end of each day so slept soundlt.

The hotel is ideally located in a safe area of La Spezia for those wishing to visit the Cinque Terre, Genoa, and the Lunigiana by train and Lerici by public bus as well as for exploring the city of La Spezia, which merits a visit. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable; the bathrooms are modern and impeccably clean. You can see the good taste of the management reflected in the choice of room furnishings from the drapes, tiled bathroom walls, fixtures and showerhead to the wooden panelled public areas that give a classy nautical feel to the hotel. The breakfast buffet is well presented with fresh pastries, organic yogurt, jams and honey, all served on nice china. I found the hotel staff welcoming and available to answer questions about how to get around, what to see and do, where to eat. I would recommend this hotel if you were in La Spezia for business or if you want to explore the Cinque Terre or Lerici.

We stayed here for 2 nights to visit Cinque Terre based on its close location to the rail station. In addition, the public parking adjacent to the station is very convenient. I found the hotel receptionist to be not so helpful and reluctant to say more than one or two words. The room is tiny even though it has a large window open to the street. The bath is the smallest I have experienced in Europe for a 3 star hotel. The breakfast is mediorcre at best and did not have a good cappucino machine like any modern hotels. I would have second thought about staying there should I go back there in the future.

Dear Guest,
the size of rooms and toilets inside an hotel doesn't depend on the hotel manager's choice but it is established by the law, in fact there's an institution in charge who controls these aspects.
Our breakfast is completely handmade; if you'd like a cappuccino, do not hesitate to ask for it to our staff that will obviously serve it to you.
