The room and bathroom were small, but they were clean and cozy. The staff was friendly and helpful- we had to catch an early train but breakfast only starts at 7am, but she prepared breakfast 10 minutes earlier so we could still grab a bite. We really appreciated that. Wifi was a bit unstable, but it was alright since we... More

We chose the hotel for its price and decent reviews. As mentioned in other reviews the toilet was really small but manageable. There was a problem of bath water getting into the room, but we managed it for one night. The room decor was modern and the towels were clean. The breakfast was decent as well. The owners was really... More

I stayed for 5 nights while walking and exploring Cinque Terre. The rooms are tidy and clean, yet small. The bathroom was ok, but the shower was extra small. Nice and welcoming staff. I had problems with the fan in my room and they changed it right away with a smile. They also printed my boarding pass for me without... More

I spent 3 days in La Spezia because of a jazz workshop and I chose this little but central hotel. In maximum 10 minutes you reach the Station to get the trains to reach the 5 Terre and you are 2 few minutes far from the pedonal area.

Staff are very sweet and helpful. The rooms are basic but very clean. Very convenient location to public transport. Parking on site is convenient. Building needs some work, no lift to top floors, but has great potential.
