“YOU DON'T GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

What you see in the web page is not what you get when you just get in the front street. Nobody is there to attend the baggages, they don't even have a ramp to get the lobby.
The hotel doesn't have A/C or is not working properly. The attention is disgusting, the overall hotel atmosphere is horrible, not to mention the bathroom problems !
I had to open the window to get some fresh air, then the noise of traffic was horrible.
I am here today when writing this review and suffering this mess !

Room Tip: Dont go there....

1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

What a disappointment we had while visiting this hotel. We had a small room, beds hardly made up, quite some noise from outside and a toilet that kept on running and a terrible sound if the upstairs neighbours flushed. The large towels were hidden away to discourage usage and the shower was pretty small. The only good things mentioning were the reception service and the staff at breakfast. It seems the owner does not want to invest any money in this hotel but keeps charging high prices and the staff tries to make up for this. Also does not have it's own parking.

Room Tip: Find a room in another hotel

The hotel is right on the main boulevard of La Spezia, it's an older version of an NH Hotel, but it keeps it's promise... I will only recommend it if you are passing by La Spezia, as it is an OK hotel and you get what you paid for..

We had stayed at this hotel 5 years ago and were very happy with it then, so rebooked for our holiday this time. We were not disappointed. The hotel is great and the staff were excellent. The reception staff were very helpful. The Business Centre PC has high speed connection. We ate dinner at the hotel after having walked the Cinque Terre and had a great meal. Luciano in the restaurant was great!

Room Tip: If you particularly want to see the water - book a sea view room.

My parents stayed in NH in the second half of August 2012. They were advised by the receptionist from the hotel to park the car on the public parking lot behind the hotel instead of the hotel parking which was for a fee.
That night 5 cars were robbed. Their windows were broken and all things stolen from the cars.
The hotel stuff was trying to be helpful, but they didn't have enough people to manage the situation and help the guests with this unpleasant situation. So the hotel offered very little support really.
So please be careful where you park your car, better use hotel parking.
The hotel itself had a good location, clean rooms and ok service. Not a typical NH hotel but could be much worse.

We had booked as part of a Cinque Terra package, breakfas, dinner train and walking pass. At that time reviews had us wondering a little about what we were in for.
Not to worry, wonderful staff, including them finding me a replacement cell phone charger for one left in Florence, (no charge), excellent breakfast and patio dinner each evening (with wine) beyond our expectation. Room and bathroom spotless, spacious and well serviced. Thank you N H for a great time with you. Ray and Jen, New Zealand

Well, after reading all the reviews on tripadvisor, we were a bit hesitant to stay at this hotel, but needless to say, had two rooms, and neither of them had any issues. First off, the rooms we recently renovated, and everything was brand new. Floors, bathroom, walls, beds, mattresses, etc... All brand new. Even the hallways. The wifi was kind of slow, but the stay was very good. It seems that the hotel has really stepped up their game. The breakfast was incredible, with many options, including gluten free celiac choices.. Juices, yogurts, breads, cheeses and a whole lot more. It's the perfect base for Cinqa terra since the hotel is a 10euro cab from the train station, which will get you to riomaggiore (the first of the 5 terras) in about 10 minutes. Also, there are many restaurants on the pietonnaire, which is the pedestrian only section right next to the train station. Only gripe is that the hotel did not have a parking lot, but for 10 euros a day for street parking right next to the hotel, it's not so bad. I suppose that's the price to pay when you stay at a hotel right on the seashore. (great views, definitely not swimmable. If you want to swim, Cinqa terra is incredible for that)

In any case, definitely recommend. I did not see any better hotels around la spezia. Enjoy.
