We had only booked Hotel Mary for two nights on arrival in La Spezia primarily based on the fact that we were flexible with regard to travel. However we decided to stay on for a further 5 nights based on the fact that Hotel Mary is based directly opposite the train station and once can be in Riomaggiore in 7/8... More

I chose this hotel because it was directly across from the train station and we were headed to the Cinque Terra the next day. While it looks sketchy on the outside the place is really quite acceptable. The front dest guy was fantastic - very accommodating and friendly. The breakfast is fantastic. The room was dated but spacious - as... More

We arrived on a late train after travelling from Venice. The hotel is directly across from the train station, but is on a lower grade (you need to use the stairs or elevator outside the station, you'll know what I mean when you get there). We were happy we did not have far to walk as we just wanted to... More

It was a last minute decision to stay at La Spezia so we didn't have many choices. We needed a place close to the station as well as a parking space for our car and Hotel Mary fit the bill. We were a bit worried because there were more bad than good reviews about this place. So I decided to... More

Very close to the train station. Hotel is very dated and seems to never have been renovated. The owners are unwelcoming and unfriendly particularly check-in and breakfast owners. Never once would a smile come from their faces. The owners are not very engaging and not helpful. You can tell the owners have been in the hotel industry for awhile and... More

The Mary Hotel's sign is the first visible hotel upon walking out of the train station. We were on our way out of the Cinque Terre and had tickets from La Spezia --> Rome the next morning at the crack of dawn. We decided to stay in La Spezia for the sole purpose of staying the night near to the... More

The hotel is a modest one, but our room was clean. Great location. When we arrived we changed our reservation and requested a room in the rear as the street seemed to noisy. They were very cooperative about this, as we went from a double to a four bed room. The staff was quick to respond when we had difficultly... More

As a solo female traveler, I found the area where this hotel was located in La Spezia to be disgusting. I was very distraught when I saw the location and the condition of the hotel. Being a non-smoker, my crappy little one bedroom reaked of smoke. I stayed one night then went over and booked a room in old town... More
