location is right in front of the train station, it offered shampoo and soaps, towels. the street noise was just horrendous and even magnified in the room, so we could not sleep at all for 3 nights because of all the noise of siren and engines of the cars, and the trains coming and going. the room dusty and dirty,...

The Albergo Parma hotel is currently called Hotel Aurora. After a two night stay here you can see why they changed their name - they were trying to leave their bad reviews behind when they should have used the reviews to improve their hotel. It's in a state of disrepair, and it's filthy. We arrived with our heavy packs by... More

Previously known as Albergo Parma hotel (look it up on trip advisor), it seems nothing has changed but the name and that in itself is a bit suspicious. Having stayed at quite a number of budget hotels, I have encountered many unpleasant ones but this is the worst I've seen. The condition of this hotel could almost be described as... More

The smell of the old furniture, the noisy, the walls were in a bad condition. the hotel needs urgent a restauration. The position, close to the train station is the only quality. It was clean but in a bad condition. It was better in a camping, than in this hotel.

Key things are: GREAT location, right next to train station. BAD place to stay more than a night. Pros - Great location - Cheap Cons - Old fashioned room with furniture seemingly from an old hospital - SHARED bathrooms. 2 per floor for 6(?) rooms. In the morning we found puke next to a toilet... - Receptionist knew little English... More

Hotel was literally across the street from the La Spezia train station so it made it easy to get into and out of the Cinque Terre. We had a double-bed room and had to share a bathroom with 3 other rooms. Although we were never waiting for anyone, it was only a single-stall, single-shower, restroom that was incredibly small. It... More

We found alot to like in our humble surroundings. The location is excellent, it is a block from the train station in a cobbled section of town. Our room was very clean with daily maid service. Although the weather was hot every day of our stay, and there was no AC, our simple room with its high ceilings was cool... More

We booked this hotel in La spezia and it was the most bad thing we could do. The room was dirty, all around was so old and dusty that you could not believe that it can have 2 stars for a rating. The bathroom was so small, that one people hardly can fit there. It was like the room of... More
