“Nice surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

In the port/industrial section of town and close to La Spezia Expo Center, this location may at first seem a bit off-putting. In fact, it is a quiet oasis in a busy area. Trees surround the property and buffer the rush of nearby traffic. The staff were all very helpful even enthusiactic about offering information about Cinque Terre, boat trips and fares, train schedules, restaurants...The lady at the reception desk even spoke to us in French! There is a free hotel shuttle (one must reserve)to the Cinque Terre ferries, to town and the train station which was most convenient. The room itself was fairly large, with mini-fridge, table & chairs, balcony and comfortable single- piece double mattress. The included breakfast, served in a pleasant dinningroom was generous and varied, Very good value. There is both a parking on- site and a second reserved parking a short distance away.

The staff at Hotel Ghironi were helpful and knowledgable of the area. Nothing was too much trouble to help us with trains, local restaurants. The rooms are spacious, well furnished and clean. Breakfasts were very tasty and plentiful. There is a parking area at the front of the hotel and a courtesy bus is available to drop you off at the station etc. I would recommend this hotel for its position, courtesy and friendliness of staff and good value for money.

This hotel is the best value for money. The desk staff are helpful with good English. The free shuttle to down town and the waterfront and return is invaluable. The house is clean and very comfortable. Good breakfast.

Thanks Ghironi.

The hotel was clean and had everything stated in the booking. Room was spacious and had a balcony. Room had a fridge which was nice. We missed the morning shuttle due to our arrival times with it was very easy to take a bus for 1.50€ to the train station. The bus stop was at the end of the street. Breakfast was a good spread. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We arrived at about 2.00am. The hotel was full. The night manager was anxious as the only room available had been used by smokers the night before. He was reluctant to offer it to us – in fact the room had been well aired all day and was fine. It was large - very well furnished - and with an excellent and spacious bathroom. The night manager could not have been more helpful (opening up the bar and insisting on producing delicious olives even though it was 2.00am). The hotel was full but the breakfast was delicious and arrangements were first class and plentiful. The receptionist in the morning was very helpful. An A1 experience all round.

Room Tip: We were given the last available room - it was excellent.

My wife and I stayed three nights, with La Spezia as our base for Cinque Terra and surroundings. Hotel very good for what it is: a fairly new building located near the port area well out of city centre away from amenities. Our room was large, bright, clean with tile floors; the bathroom also was large with lots of hot water and good water pressure. Staff friendly and very helpfull but some had very limited English and it was hard to make some arrangements. Good breakfast. Wi-fi fine and enough parking spaces. Place lacked character (it is fairly new). No restaurants nearby and either need car or rely on hotel shuttle. Room quiet in spite of being on a busy road.

We stayed it as a base for exploring La Cinque Terre. It was a quiet little hotel not too far away from the main Marina of La Spezia. There is an awesome little restaurant down the alleyway on the way to the main Marina that serves everything with muscles. The place is awesome a must visit.

The rooms were basically standard but for what you pay are well worth it. The hotel staff are lovey and always willing to help a tourist. The rooms a small TVs but at least they work. We had an awesome sleep as the beds were very comfortable.

Really enjoyed this place!!!
