Found this hotel on the internet. It is located in a small village, on a mountain top, and can be seen for miles around. A Winding road leads uphill until you reach the village (and don't follow your GPS when it wants you to turn into the very narrow Mercato lane, continue on the main road to stay sane). The... More

This is a great place! We were a bit suspicious about the hotel when we booked because we thought the name was Hotel Albani (which we could not find on the internet). Had we have known the "real" name we would have seen all of the excellent reviews in TA. In any event, the hotel is located in the tiny... More

We chanced upon this hotel via TripAdvisor, and were very pleased. It's nestled in the heart of a very tiny hilltop village close to the Cinque Terre and made a great base for exploring the surrounding area. The hotel itself was lovely, great location, friendly staff, excellent breakfast, and helpful with all of our needs. I don't think there were... More

Very nice location, wonderful view both of the village and the surroundings. Staff welcoming and very kind. Enjoyed also dinner at the dehors of the restaurant, typical food of this area. Pesto was great, wide choice of good wines as well. Room was huge and well furnished, although a little bit hot at arrival

The hotel has a stunning location on top of the hill. Very nicely appointed and spacious rooms. But the best part was having a drink at the local bar and having a meal where the locals eat. So we knew it was all authentic. There also a great little grocery store nearby with friendly owners. It's out of the way,... More

Difficult to find, but once you drive up the narrow winding road its worth it. We found the whole village charming and glad we stayed there on our way to Cinque Terre. The rooms we were given were nicely appointed , warm & comfortable with the only criticisms being the cramped shower recess & the long narrow flights of steps... More

Stayed 2 nights in this hotel, great customer service, located next to a wonderful little restaurant. Hotel room was clean. Location required use of a car but well worth the trip to get out of the city and experience the countryside & relax!

My partner and I stayed in a suite room at Al Convento for 2 nights as part of a 2 week Europe holiday. We flew into Pisa and picked up a brand new 1.3L diesel Fiat Punto hire car and drove up to La Spezia, which we managed pretty easily with just the paper maps they give you at the... More

We stayed here for three nights. Our room was not as pleasant looking as others however you can tell that a talented decorator has been at work in the hotel. The bed was not at all comfortable and the mattresses need replacement. The shower stall is tiny. The climb up the hill is for confident drivers only and was stressful.... More
