We stumbled upon Crismar Hotel by chance while wondering through the city looking for a decent place to spend the night. We hadn't planned for any accommodation and had a hard time finding something that seemed both reasonably priced and welcoming - until we found Hotel Crismar. We walked in around 9:30pm and received a very warm welcome from Isabella who showed us a very nice and cosy room for us to stay in. The price was reasonable for the product and she was kind enough to include wifi and anything we may want from the minibar. We accepted immediately.
The overall friendliness, warmth and openness of this hotel was fantastic - Crismar not only provided a home away from home but also became part of our Spezia and great Cinque Terre experience. So much so that we decided to stay a second night.
The breakfast was very decent for the price and we especially loved Paolo who was both highly professional providing great service and extremely insightful on la Spezia - a very impressive gentleman who speaks very eloquent english.
Last but not least, I had forgotten my shirt in the hotel the day we left and Isabella was kind enough to have it sent to us in Rome within ten days. We were so impressed and grateful!
We really miss it - thank you to Isabella for everything.
