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.

Traveling without a GPS-probably foolish- we were not sure we were going to find this hotel. The Via Genova is a winding road complete with many hills and tunnels so common in this part of Italy. When we finally did find the hotel we were very pleased with what we found. The host spoke perfect English which made it very... More

I stayed there a couple of nights when I was on the way for Cinque Terre. The hotel had extra friendly and helpful staff, makes you feel very welcome. Neighborhood was quiet. Breakfast was great and the rooms clean and comfortable. The hotel was a good value for given money. Cinque Terre is very accessible when travelling with a car.

My wife and I stayed at hotel Nella for one week. It was an ideal location to visit the Cinque Terre and tour the Ligurian coast in our hired car. The hotel was very good value for money.

The Hotel Nella is a reasonable hotel. We had two rooms - one was a regular rooms that we would rate as middle-of-the-road (nice way of saying average) and the other one well...I couldn't call it anything less than a tarted-up broom closet. Looking at the good aspects of the hotel, we found the staff very friendly and helpful with... More

We were welcomed by a lovely lady who showed us to our rooms despite the late hour. Car was parked opposite the hotel in a private parking lot & we were ready to get some rest. However, we could a couple from somewhere in the hotel murming & talking for an hour which kept us awake. Apart from this, the... More

Up in the mountains, not far from downtown, this beautiful hotel was a perfect place to stay. We were able to book a standard room for ourselves (clean, large and comfortable) as well as an economy size room (small, which we knew ahead of time, but workable) for our 2 boys, 11 and 15. Balcony rooms are also available, but... More

No problems with the property, the staff, the rooms and the restaurants near it. Only problem is that the busses and trains around cinque terra don't sync back to hotel nella. You must be back at the hotel by 7.30 or you need to get a taxi, so people on a budget need to be wary. Great views of la... More

I was a little mad at myself initially for booking a hotel that seemed to be so far out of town. It's not really in La Spezia, rather in a little village called La Foce which is about 4Km away. However, there is an absolutely breathtaking view of La Spezia, and the hotel is pretty well-served by buses during the... More
