I stayed for 3 nights whilst visiting cinque terra. The receptionist is definitely the interface to the hotel, she is there at 7am and leaves at midnight. She is friendly, helps with all enquiries. The breakfast was a highlight, homemade pastries, coffee, cereals, juice, savouries were delicious!

First impression: Good location in the city (ten minutes walk from La Spezia's train station). Then, nice welcome. My room is clean and recently refurbished. The bed is comfortable. Breakfast buffet offers variety (each day new things) and delicious homemade backery. Sara, at the desk, gives perfect tips for dinner and is always very helpful. Well, right, the street is... More

Location perfect, 15 min walk from railway station. Free parking in front of hotel was great too. We arrived quite late in the evening but Sara our recepionist was absolutely lovely and also gave us recommendations to a popular trattoria as well as parking directions for the next day. Room was a bit small for 3 people, and the bathroom... More

Hotel is within walking distance from the Train Station in La Spezia, perhaps 20 minutes? We wanted a place to stay so we can visit Cinque Terre, which its farthest town is only a 20 minute train ride away. We also walked to the Harbour as well. Amazing breakfast with fresh homemade cakes amongst a wide selection of other breakfast... More

Hotel was clean and tidy but very dated. The hotel is in a handy downtown position and easy walk to the train station to catch trains to Cinque Terre. The hostess wS wonderful and always had a smiling face when asked for assistance. Main nag active was the small shower recess. We liked the hotel.

Our family stayed in this hotel for 1 night before going to Cinque Terre. It med our basic needs. Clean. Great value in a popular area. The receptionist, Sara is just the nicest person, very accommodating, warm, and helpful. I think the hotel can be named after her. The place is located very close to the ferry and train stations....
