“Great Place to Stay to Visit Cinque Terre”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

We stayed here for three nights and really liked it. The staff are very helpful in all areas. I was having trouble with my Kindle Fire and Luca, who was the day desk man, sorted it all out for me. He and Paula were able to tell us the best way to get around by train and looked up the schedule for us, letting us know that some of the stations were closed. They were able to tell us good, affordable places to eat and the best places the see while we were in the other villages. The breakfast was good, the cappuccino excellent. Everything was clean and comfortable. We will definitely stay here again when we return to that area.

Stayed three nights the summer of 2008.
This hotel is very dull and old. The room was a bit prisonlike :-) Essentially you get what you pay for. A room to sleep in. But the location is very good. Not far from the train station or La Spezi a`s main street. It is a perfect base for exploring Cinque Terre.

The man in the reception: The owner? Anyway, he made my stay here. He was Basil Fawlty`s lazy brother. "aa you want to pay for another night already? aaa then I have use the credi card machine...We can wait until tomorrow" And he actually sighed loudly. He was hilarious. Everytime I went though the reception area he sat in the lounge watching TV.

The hotel was clean, staff were very friendly and helpful, with travel advice and service. There was an excellent comprehensive breakfast provided and the hotel is very convenient to the La Spezia train station.

Great location across from the train station and great price. The room was spacious and very clean and breakfast was good. We used this hotel as a base to commute to Cinque Terre villages. I would recommend La Spezia as the accommodations are cheaper, lots of activities in the evening and easy access to Cinque Terre.

Room was huge with a small bathroom. You couldn't open the window to the room because it overlooked the main street. Breakfast was edible. They could do with fresh bread/rolls though. Upside - across from the train station. Not noisy at all. Walking distance into town and shops.

Pretty much a dump but ran by a lovely kind and helpful family. The mother and father were very kind but spoke little english but the son was very helpful.They were good about giving directions with maps and such.

Went with my mom and boyfriend and my mom got a separte room. When she walked into her 1 tiny room it looked like a jail cell. She walked right out and asked to sleep in our room. We arrived at night and it was very sketchy. Didn't look very safe.

Only upside is the location location location. Train station is literally right across the street. If your loooking for a cheap semi not so safe place. Stay here.

We woke up at 615 am to check out smooth check out, however we went to go get breakfast and clearly they did not clean up from evening before because there were bugs in the dining room. Pretty nasty.

Also, only upside is wifi did work and if it doesnt for whereever you are in the tiny hotel they do have a pretty fast computer in lobby.
