3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2014

The hotel is in a rural setting, so it is fairly quiet, but remote from attractions in La Spezia and Cinque Terre. Room was large enough, but bedding was uncomfortable. Reception staff was friendly and helpful. Shower was too small to serve its purpose.

Nothing fancy, don't expect anything modern, but the room was clean with A/C and wifi. Great breakfast selection. Great place if you're driving, free parking was appreciated. Really helpful guy at reception advised us on the best way to see Cinque Terre. Restaurant next door stays open till late and does a good pizza too!

We stayed here 3 nights earlier this month. We booked a room for 4 but ended up having an extra person. The staff was nice enough to add a bed and let us all stay in the same room--for an added charge, but it is well worth it. The breakfast is amazing! You always read about how "light" the breakfasts... More

The hotel is out of the way but with a car is a nice quiet location. The rooms are very basic but at least they are a good size. The male staff were great, quite helpful and informative. The others were less so. The interactions and service was entertaining if not on occasion comical. The bathroom is without doubt the... More

This hotel is very solid with more goods than bads: the room isnt particularly charming and the bathroom is really small. But it has aircondition and it is nice and clean. The TV has one of those coders which i never figured out. The wifi is hi-speed and stable, nice. There are 3 restaurants within 100m and if you walk... More

I stayed for one night of a very hot day in early June (temperature typical for July/August). I had booked a double room, which was of good size. However, it had a weak AC, and it would have taken hours for the room to come down to an inhabitable temperature (for me around 23 deg. C). I asked for another... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I'm sorry for the problem you had during your stay but it was your choice to change your room with a smaller one beacuse, in your opinion, the AC would have taken hours to cool the room . As I told you when you were here, our AC would not... More

We stayed two nights at the Hotel Nella in La Spezia. The room was clean with an adequate shower, and there was free dedicated parking. On the second floor there was an outside terrace on which guests could relax after a day of sight-seeing. All the staff were pleasant and helpful, and Cristina (at the front desk) gave us suggestions... More

Thank you for taking the time to reviw our hotel. I'm really happy you had a nice stay in our hotel and that the staff was helpful and pleasant. I'm really sorry if you felt the bed too hard but I think the hardness of the bed is very subjective: if it is too soft would not be liked by... More

Located high above the town of La Spezia, this hotel offers clean and spacious room, comfortable beds and very good breakfast. What makes this place outstanding is the friendly and wonderful staff. English is not problem here. The front desk personnel was wonderful providing excursion... More

This hotel was a perfect spot to stay when visiting Cinque Terre. Keepers where helpful and friendly. Breakfast was normal European style but it was very hard to find, especially arriving at night. More signage would be a major positive. While the room itself was average the shower was rather nice.
