“TERRIBLE, don't stay here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

Check in was horrible because the manager / owner does not stay there, we waited for 2 hours before I can check in. When he got here he was rude and I felt completely awlful. Rooms are bad conditions, I would definitely not recommend anyone to stay here.

Gentile cliente, ci è difficile prendere in considerazione il suo commento visto che lei non ha pernottato all'interno della nostra struttura e per essere più precisi non c'è nemmeno entrato.
Capiamo che sia contrariato per aver dovuto pagare ugualmente una camera di cui non ha usufruito per sua personale scelta. Consigliamo per il futuro la cancellazione ufficiale. grazie

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2011

We stayed for 2 nights in May, the hotel is located on the same road as the station, but down the hill on the oposite side - with no distinguishing name to find it by. The location is good, close to shops and ammenities, cost was reasonable, but the breakfast consists only of 1 croisant and a coffee, which is not what you woild normally expect. Only other complaint was that the room was nor serviced during out stay - when I understand the owner had a new baby born. Would recommend with a byo breakfast.

Siamo felici di sapere che la posizione della nostra struttura sia stata funzionale e pratica per lei, in merito alla colazione ci teniamo a precisare che si tratta di leggera colazione italiana come viene chiaramente evidenziato e pubblicizzato nel sito. Per il servizio di pulizia extra della camera è un servizio a pagamento che le è stato proposto e che lei non ha richiesto. Certi di riaverla nostro ospite la salutiamo cordialmente.

Comfortable,spacious and clean rooms. The host was extremely kind. Very convenient location, close to the train station, restaurants and supermarket. Reasonable price. They should provide better breakfast.

An excellent hotel! Four minute walk from La Spezia train station; the station that takes you to Cinque Terre. It's right near the city center, Simone the owner is extremely friendly and helpful! The hotel was extremely quite, I didn't hear anything the whole night!

The previous person to stay in my room broke the lock off the door, and because of the holiday it couldn't be fixed before my stay. Wasn't a problem at all, Simone offered me the store closet to store my bag and just handed me the key even with all his stuff in it. Even with the lock broken I didn't fell unsafe in the least, however I'm pretty self-sufficient and don't worry that much. However Simone was even prepared to offer that I stay at his house haha.

The hotel is very clean and very comfortable, however there are only five rooms available so book in advance so you can get the room for as long as you need. This hotel really was a good hotel, and good for the price and has free Wi-Fi; so bring your iPhone/iTouch or whatever.

The Locanda Golfo is located in La Spezia, Italy in close proximity to the La Spezia Centrale train station. The train station is approximately a 4-5 minute walk from the station. The owner provided, free of charge, a secure place to leave out luggage. Our train did not leave until 6PM on our day of checkout and the owner made sure that our luggage was secure that entrire day. We stayed in a quad room with modern furniture and a nice bath. The owner was very helpful and provided information on seafood restaurants and nearby pizza places. The train to Cinque Terre (Riomaggiore) costs approximately 1.8E per person each way. The train runs frequently. It takes approximately 8-10 minutes, by train, to get from La Spezia Centrale Station to Riomaggiore. We enjoyed out stay and would definitely return to Locando Golfo.

The room was a little small, but clean and well kept. The manager was very nice and incredibly accommodating when we didn't arrive when we first expected to. The street traffic was a bit too much for us. We probably would not stay here again, but only because we'd stay somewhere in the Cinque Terre.

The hotel is ideally located only five minutes' walk from the La Spezia train station and a minute from the main pedestrian shopping and restaurant mall which leads down to the marina. We were required to call a phone number for entry to the hotel and our host arrived within two minutes and was extremely friendly and helpful with information on the local area, attractions and eateries (his recommendation of a nearby Italian restaurant for a good value dinner was outstanding). Our family room was basic but very good value for money and was immaculate in every respect. We would happily stay here on a future visit, especially since access to the Cinque Terre is so quick and easy by rail or by ferry from the marina.
