Hotel Nella was the best surprise we had during our visit to Italy. Mind you, it takes a little persistance to get to the hotel....but it is well worth the effort. Our room was large (by European standards), spotless, very comfortable, and quiet. The peaceful surroundings were a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the other cities we had visited. We enjoyed our dinner in the restaurant and the breakfasts we very nice. There is a restaurant across the street where we enjoyed a dinner as well. It was a beautiful setting and we enjoyed sitting on our balcony and enjoying the cool evening air each night. This was the perfect place for us to stay while revelling in the wonders of Cinque Terre!
The bus (La Foca) leaves from below the train station and takes about 10 - 15 minutes to arrive at the hotel - the last bus runs at 8:00 pm - so you cannot stay out late! But after hiking all day in Cinque Terre - it was actually nice to have an excuse to go back to the hotel and relax (you cannot walk the distance as it is a very steep winding road - and you could never carry anything, like luggage, up this grade). The bus will take you down to La Spezia each morning and you can easily catch the train to Cinque Terre!
