“Very strange”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2011

I travelled to La Spezia by train, and i should say, this place would be difficult to find if i didn't take a taxi (9 euro for a ride), it's far from the central station. The place itself is very strange - isolated from places like shops, cafes or whatever, it has complicated automatic system for the gates to enter the hotel (if noone's at the reception), very small room, the lights in your room fade out in 5 min if you put the card in the wrong way, no mini bar, no computer, no wifi, the breakfast is poor, it left a hard impression. The check-out is early - you should leave the hotel around 10 am the latest. I think it's no good value for money, and wouldn't really recommend it to anyone. The only thing that is good is its close location to the embankment and the boat station (from there you can go to 4Terra).

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2011

Not sure how we came to book this accommodation or how we found it. Quite an unusual experience to stay here - almost like a ghost town. Very very clean, pleasant if stark room but with a lovely view of the harbour. Very patchy service, good on first day but after that not so good - Were they trainees? Expected to do too much? Dinner in the restaurant was tasty, filling and cheap. No one to help at breakfast on 2nd day - didn't look like it had been restocked from previous day. A long from train station if catching train to Cinque Terre but OK. Security gates and system a bit intimidating. Noise transference from rooms and corridors was very bad - take ear plugs.
