This hotel is only about 6 years old so you have a working modern place to stay. We stayed here for two nights while visiting Cinque Terre. First off the rooms were well equipt and modern with average European facilities. Modern key card access with a room safe and small fridge. The hotel is well staffed and clean with a neat little bar just to the right of the front desk.
The style and decorating is a bit more modern that what you'd expect in Old world Italy but i suppose that was the designers point. This hotel is difficult to find without GPS. It took us over an hour once we arrrived in La Spezia. The hotel is basically built on the mountain with its first floor at street level of the town and its entrance on the 5th floor along a winding mountainside (oneway) road. If you don't choose the correct road going uphill you may find yourself coming back down the other side only to try again. The ground floor allows access to the streets for dining and shopping. No cars so you come out onto the City center walking area of the city. This is nice and a nice place to walk and explore.
We were a short 10 minute walk to the train station that wisks you off to Cinque Terre. 9 minutes via train to the first town, Riomagiorra i think. then just 5 minutes or so between stops. Quick and painless. Again as with all of Italy, watch for pick pockets. They will look for any open/unattended purses or bags.
Breakfast was OK. Not spectacular but sufficient. A lot to choose from so don't let this be a deal killer. Fruit, baked goods, eggs, sausage etc. As well as cereals, meats and cheeses. The hotel is clean but does have that standard hotel smell. Also not a real problem but i've always thought it wasn't necessary. Clean doesn't have to smell like cleaners. Air conditioning worked perfectly fine just in case your worried. We would likely stay here again if revisiting Cinque Terre.
