Albergo Teatro
Ranked #13 of 153 La Spezia B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 June 2013

There were no lifts and 2 flights of stairs. Offered no help with suitcases. Owner/manager showed no care in all matters. Was only concerned with payment. Booked for 3 people - room far too small. It was hard to communicate with the owner because he couldn't speak English and wasn't really interested in helping us

Can you specify when you've been? I think you're wrong hotel.
Our hotel is run only by me and my wife (Antonio and Alice) and we both speak English, as evidenced by all the other reviews. Our structure has only 7 rooms and the only one triple is the most spacious of all.

Between my 70 year old mother and I we have a mixed review.

My opinion: the owners were super and went above and beyond what was needed. Rooms were quite small but clean. The windows face into an alley which gets noisy and the garbage trucks in the early hours do not help. Location in relation to the train and harbor is great.
Though it is listed on trip advisor as a B and B, there is no breakfast.

My mother:
Small rooms! Small bathroom! Dark. Don't cheap out.

Overall, I think it was a good place and would recommend it.

We needed a place close to the train station in La Spezia but the closest ones were sold out so we booked this one for 1 night.
This one is close to the pier so came handy to catch the boat to Cinque Terre. It was clean and the owner is very friendly.

Room Tip: Get a room with private bathroom as the price different is minimal. The rooms with window to the st...

Budget priced hotel, more like a pensione. Simple room with sink and small bathroom down the hall. Family owned by young couple with their two small children. Honest, accommodating owner (he returned 1 Euro to me after I paid indicating that his rate was showing up as $1 less than what I had indicated).

About a 15 minute walk from the train station, easy to find; just around the corner from the civic theater and very close to the bus stop where I found the bus to Porto Venere - very worth a visit. I left late in the afternoon and had time for a stroll around town, a gelato and a visit to the church and other areas by the water.

As a solo traveler who preferred to not rent a room and climb stairs in one of the Cinque Terre, La Spezia was a good base to see all of the towns the following day. The train ticket included all cities from La Spezia to Lovento so I saw them all. The trails between the "Terre" were still closed and you could see some of the rebuilding still happening.

Room Tip: Turns out the owner is a jazz guitarist. I came back one afternoon to the wonderful sound of live ja...

The hotel is walking distance from the central station end only a block away from the waterfront area. It is situated in a beautiful area of this picturesque town. We were warmly and friendly welcomed, we could get extra information on the local scene, like places to eat and the best places to discover. We had an excellent stay!

We have been for the third time in Albergo Teatro in october 2012 and once again experienced the same friendly welcome by Antonio and Alice as before. Whenever needed this was accompanied by helpful hints in any respect. You don't need more than this simple and clean place to stay if you want to discover la Spezia and its formidable surroundings on your own.

I was unsure whether to give this place two or three points, but considering the high price we paid I decided to give just two. You could expect more for that money but in summer hotels are expensive in La Spezia. The location is great in the city centre and close to harbour. However, you can hear everything from the street. Despite the yellow walls, the room was pretty dark with basic furniture. A better lightning is needed! In addition to this, TV wasn't working well. This hotel does not offer any breakfast but you can always find some bar to drink a coffee. Staff was friendly and spoke good English. No reception.

Thank you for your comment. Since we are aware of the problems of noise we proceeded to change the fixtures. Now all the windows are double glazed. For any problem you've encountered (TV or otherwise) we might like if you had spoken there, we would proceeded to solve it. We do not have a traditional reception but you remember the office where you have been received and that, living us over the hotel, we are always available to meet any need. Maybe we will have occasion to welcome you again!
