We stayed in Albergo Serena hotel for our Cinque Terre visit. It's location is pretty ideal for a budget hotel if you have a car; with a short drive you can arrive the train station for Cinque Terre trains. The hotel is on a mountain with amazing views of olive trees. Our check-in was smooth but it was the only... More

This is a nice, reasonably, economic hotel, near La Spezia . The area is relatively underdeveloped, which means you need transport to go anywhere. The rooms were clean, comfortable and reasonably ventilated. Breakfast was better than expected with the usual Italian pastries and tarts, accompanied by some cheeses and a waffle maker!

For the price, the room is a good deal. It is sparsely decorated but clean with slate floors and bathroom. There is a little balcony with a nice hill view. Breakfast was typical with baked goods and yogurt though I was disappointed to see that much of the fruit was rotten. The real problem is that the hotel is very... More

I stayed there in July 2010, on my wy to Florence, chose it as a stop for one night, as it was near to the sea, in a beautiful place. This small hilltop village was really enchanting and the hotel was lovely, very nice, clean, tranquil. The sea was ca 2 km away, there was a bus going to the... More

Arrived after a long drive from Switzerland to be given a large room with balcony overlooking deep wooded valley and views of local village. Great start. Clean and tidy with decent ensuite and shower. Hotel is trying hard to be 'boutiqueish' with bright bold colours in profusion - yellows, reds, lime greens. It sort of works. Some parking and easy...

Experience beautiful. The receptionist was very polite and friendly with us. The hotel is colorful, clean and cheap. The Italian breakfast was varied: bread, pastries, cakes, creakers, cookies, biscuits, fruit, many kinds of tea, coffee, cappuccino, yogurt, butter, cheese etc. The young and friendly staff informed us about all the cities to visit in the area.

Well, the facilities are in an awful state...the owners sould renew them. Our room was dirty, and we had to call the staff to clean it. The cleanliness of a hotel is its biggest assest, in my opinion... The breakfeast was very limited and the quality and freshness of the pastry was bellow average. I wouldn't recommend anyone to book... More

Spacious. Great bathroom. Good breakfast with good variety. Ample parking if you're driving (use Waze iPad app to navigate). Try to get a room with a balcony. The hotel is close to the beach by car. Stay here for a vist to the Cinque Terre; take the ferry from Lerici.
