I stayed here for two nights en route to another part of Italy. It is a simple but comfortable place, an easy 10-15 minute walk from the station. it is on a quiet side street so I personally found it very quiet in the evening. It's in a normal part of town where normal people go to normal shops and pay normal prices, especially at the morning market which takes place every day about 1 minute away. You don't feel you are paying rip-off tourist prices. The breakfast was lovely with home made cakes and the croissants are to die for! It would make an ideal base for touring the Cinque Terre and La Spezia is on a main rail line all the way north and south, as well as on the line for visiting the different little towns.
The only slight problem in an old building is that sound insulation isn't perfect but the positives far outweigh that and I wish them every luck in their endeavour.
