Hotel Mary
Ranked #10 of 21 Hotels in La Spezia
Reviewed 2 October 2013

The hotel is a modest one, but our room was clean. Great location. When we arrived we changed our reservation and requested a room in the rear as the street seemed to noisy. They were very cooperative about this, as we went from a double to a four bed room. The staff was quick to respond when we had difficultly with the safe, and the remote for the air-conditioning. One must shut the windows for the air to come on. They gave us a great tip on a restaurant, and their breakfast buffet was diverse and satisfying.

As a solo female traveler, I found the area where this hotel was located in La Spezia to be disgusting. I was very distraught when I saw the location and the condition of the hotel. Being a non-smoker, my crappy little one bedroom reaked of smoke. I stayed one night then went over and booked a room in old town Monterosso and enjoyed the rest of my time in beautiful Cinque Terra! I would never stay at Mary again, never.

Room Tip: I'm sure they all suck.

Highly recommended for single traveller or the budget traveller as a jumping-off point for Cinque Terre. My single room was small but comfortable, with own bathroom consisting of small shower, toilet & bidet. It has its own air-conditioning and everything was VERY clean! Excellent WiFi coverage in my room and breakfast was simple but pleasant.
The hotel is literally in front of the La Spezia train station and is perfect for visitors arriving by train. A day-pass (10 Euro) for Cinque Terre and the train took all of 9 minutes to reach the first of the Cinque Terre villages. It continues and stops at all the 5 villages & beyond. I arrived by car and had to find parking on the crowded streets near the hotel as the hotel has no parking lot.
A short walk to the right of the hotel brings one to a area with many moderately priced restaurants with excellent menus.
I would recommend avoiding the crowd and high prices of hotels in the 5 villages and use Hotel Mary as your base for visiting Cinque Terre.

I stayed at The Mary in July 2013 - the best thing about the Mary is that if you are traveling by train, it is directly across the road from the train station, which is super convenient.

Its clean and basic, but if I had my time again I would definately pay a little extra to stay at one of the 5 towns on the Cinque Terra.

Free internet but you have to keep getting passwords from the front desk.

The Mary is only a 5 minute walk to the main street of La Spezia, however, the hotel doesn't seem to have been updated for many years. It is clean and tidy but old...

Breakfast was very basic but adequate.
The staff were ok, but not super friendly

The street that Mary is on is a little dodgy at night - but not unsafe

It's a 15 minute walk through the main street to the ferry's for the Cinque Terra

I didn't particularly find that this hotel was value for money - I stayed for 2 nights @ 133 Euros / 66 euro's a night - a fair price should have been around 50 Euros.

There was no noise from the train station or the street.
My wrap up - if you can stay in one of the towns, do so, it will be worth it.

Location is just excellent for those who do not wish to walk too far upon arriving. It's situated right in front of the train station main entrance.
Just 15minutes walk from the La Spezia ferry for Cinque Terre.

Facilities wise, hotel room is clean and have functional basic room facilities. Comfortable for a 3 star hotel.

The staff were friendly as well, they gave me information on where and how to get to the ferry terminal for cinque terre. In addition, on my last day, after checking out, the staff allow me to leave my backpacks with them as I still have a few hours before my next train to Rome.

Cheap and great hotel for visiting Cinque Terre due to a walking distance of only two minutes to the train station! The hotel is average in about everything but the location makes it perfect for staying during visits to Cinque Terre! The room we had was a bit dull, but clean and breakfast included is a big plus (actually a good breakfast compared to other Italian hotels).
