CDH Hotel La Spezia
Ranked #4 of 21 Hotels in La Spezia
Reviewed 31 August 2008

This is a busy hotel- well located for seeing the Cinque Terre, and very central in La Spezia (useful for ducking back to the room to get out of the July heat).

The only complaint was that the fridge in my sister's room didn't work, which made it difficult to keep milk etc for her baby. We were told that there was nothing that could be done about that, but in every other way the staff were very accommodating regarding having a small child.

The rooms were very clean, and the breakfast was quite varied. I would recommend this hotel.

We choose this hotel as we wanted a base in La Spezia for 2 nights to visit Cinque Terre. Having read the reviews we booked direct as we received a better rate. We arrived late in the evening and were initially impressed with the receptionist and the quality of the room given. We were given a room on the 4th floor. I struggle sleeping in hotels and use ear plugs to ensure a quiet night. My wife was woken at 6 am by what we initially thought were the occupiers of the room above moving furniture and making banging noises. This continued until we got up at 8.am. We went for breakfast and found that we had a room directly under the eating area. The noise of furniture was guests getting up and down from their tables. The banging we quickly found was the coffe machine being emptied. We complained and asked to be moved. The Manager did not want to speak to us and we were offered 2 more rooms which we were not happy with. Having threatend to leave we were shown a junior suite which was in a quieter part of the hotel on the 6th floor. The quality of this room was still in our opinion not of a 4* hotel. We were thouroughly dissapointed in this hotel and will not return. On a positive note the hotel is well situated with easy access to the town centre and the train station

We found the hotel easy enough, but expect a 10 minute walk from the train station. There is an info desk at the train station where you can get a map and it is on the free one they provide.

The staff were friendly enough and check in was a breeze. Having read other reviews on the best floor to stay on I asked for one above Reception floor but these weren't available. We stayed one floor below reception but on the other side of the building and it was great. It wasn't noisy, though with the tiles you did hear alot of footsteps. The room was clean and the breakfast for us was included, and it was a very good continental breakfast with a good selection. Would definitely stay again if in La Spezia

Great hotel (though hard to find). Location is convenient - but tucked away. The room was huge - and well decorated (as was the bathroom). A definate 4 star...and quite a treat for this area! Great value.....

Once we actually found it, this hotel was great!
*** Beautiful modern room
*** Great breakfast
*** Nestled into the main La Spezia district
*** Directly on the main street of the locals' nightly evening walk
*** Quiet, with safe and security features
Minuses:
- - - HARD to find from the train station--it is NOT "meters from the station", probably more like 1/2 mile, LOTS of hills
- - - Has the power restrictions we saw in some European hotels. You have to insert your key to be able to turn the power on, which means you can't charge your camera batteries while you are out at dinner!

As we came in at night it was a trick to find it in the dark, but we lucked out and got one of the few parking spots right in the front of the hotel. The elevator takes you down to ground level of the old town, which was pedestrian friendly and certainly worth the visit. The walk to the train station to go to the Cinque Terra is easy, making this a great home base for visiting that area.

The hotel is modern and updated, the staff very friendly and accommodating, and the room was better than expected.

MapQuest gave us the right location, Google maps gave us the wrong side of the tracks, so I recommend checking with the hotel staff directly for directions. Easy once you done it, but parking can be a problem so leave your car once you've found a spot!

Luckily we only stayed at this hotel for 1 night while driving through the area. Be aware there's hardly any parking around. The hotel has a garage but very few spaces available against additional charge.

The room: the walls are made of cardboard - you literally hear everything. Someone drops a pen on the floor in a room across the corridor, it wakes you up, someone flushes their toilet, you think you have a guest in the bathroom. We were assigned a room with handicap facilities - no problem with that other than we're not handicapped and found the empty bathroom weird next to the tiny, tiny bedroom. Our room (406) was situated one floor down (yes, down) from the reception, in fact just beneath reception so each time somebody walked into the hotel, we could hear the footsteps through the ceiling. Each time the phone rang at reception, we heard it, each time a coffee was prepared at breakfast (situated just next to reception), we heard the coffee machine going. Our room had one window overlooking a tiny courtyard where one grey looking palm tree tried to grow... the room hardly had any natural light at all. Long curtains kept the little light there was out. To our disgust the curtains also hid a dirt y old McDonald bag and dust balls. There are no carpets in the entire hotel so again, there's a terrible echoe. Taking into account that there is a 1 cm opening below the door of each room, again, you hear people walking or talking in the corridor as if they were just 30 cm away...It was simply an awful experience. We did not sleep at all during the whole night and the 150 € for just one night was a real ripoff.

Stay away if you can! If you have no other choice than to stay here, then ask for a room on 6th or 7th floor (reception is on 5th floor and there are 3 floors below reception = very dark and gloomy).
