This is a small boutique bed and breakfast hotel. Only a easy 5-10 minute walk from the station and close to the ferry. The owner Carla was very friendly and helpful with tips on what to do and where to eat. The rooms are small but very comfortable. The breakfast is simple continental but served to you in a nice...

Pros: - Hotel is well located and is a short walk from the train station to get to Cinque Terre. It is also a short walk to the docks if you want to get there by boat. There are a lot of shops and restaurants very close by as well. -The host is super lovely and she speaks French! -The... More

This hotel was very nice, clean rooms, and great staff. Its location is perfect for visiting Cinque Terre. But we were very surprised and pleased with all that LaSpezia has to offer. What a quaint City where you can really enjoy the local experience of being in italy. Thanks Isabella.

I think La Spezia gets overlooked a bit shadowed by C T. This hotel is located in the middle of bustling La Spezia on the main promenade. And ideally located for exploring Cinque Terra. It is a direct 5 minute walk to thé ferry dock and about the same to thé train. Hotel is quaint 9 room hotel with clean... More

As part of our 5 week Italian holiday we wanted to see Cinque Terre for 3 nights/4days. As it was difficult to find accommodation for a family of 4 in the little towns we decided on staying in La Spezia and commuting by train each day. We were certainly not disappointed, the location of this hotel is fantastic! It is... More

Stayed here whilst cycling solo from Lancashire to Sicily on June 2014. Genuinely friendly welcome on arrival at this lovely little hotel in a side street in the centre of La Spezia. Comfortable rooms albeit a little small and a lovely breakfast. Good restaurant recommendations and my Italian improved a little too thanks to the helpful lady owner. Charming stay.

We stayed at Crismar Hotel for 2 nights because we wanted to visit Cinque Terre. The hotel is really well located and the staff was really nice and helpful. Our room had a bed that was too firm for my taste (and my back). The bathroom had a flawed layout with the toilet too close to the shower: our knees... More

This hotel is run by a lovely young couple who went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable and stress free. We have stayed in many different hotels while traveling through France and Italy and this certainly was the very best.
