“Clean, spa but overpriced experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Hotel is quite basic. We stayed in a triple room (33), and was very spartan and small for 3 (I believe they give you a double room with an extra bed, but charge 40% more ...). Definitely is overpriced for what they give you back.
Hotel area is 5-10 minute walk from boats to Cinque terre (that's the reason we chose it), but is half an hour from train station.... terrible if you don't have car and carrying luggage.
Also, at night it isn't a 'nice' area to walk around and everything was closed (and not well illuminated). Breakfast was ok (nothing special).
I'm sure we will try another place next time to have a better experience!

Much nicer inside than it appears from the outside. Clean. Conveniently located and reasonably priced. I recommend it and would come back. I walked to the nice small streets and it was a nice 5 minute walk. Breakfast was very reasonable

It's an okay place, but too far from Cinque Terre to feel like you are getting the whole experience. Also, it was overpriced for what you get. The walls are paper thin and the breakfast was not that great. On the plus side, it's clean and there's paid parking. However, I would not stay there again.

It is a 3 star hotel and it should stay like this,
the stuff is wonderful and very helpful, the place is clean.
lots of street noise and noise from other rooms.
the WIFI is very purr and you can hardly use it but when you get it it works.

Room Tip: not the street rooms

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

Only hotel that could fit us (family of 5) and a car (in secure, but tight garage). Despite initial difficulty navigating the one-way traffic system to get to the garage, the hotel was very comfortable. Breakfast was lovely, staff were friendly, and close to harbour for evening promenade. Convenient for ferry to Cinque Terre, but too far to walk for station (though plenty of bus options available).

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2011

We stayed at Corallo because all the hotels in Cinque Terre were full. The room was fine, breakfast and hotel as well but the staff were a little strange and not that helpful. Instead of informing about breakfast, WiFi etc on arrival we had to ask them about everything.

The location was not good, but we knew that before booking.
I recommend the boats to Cinque Terre. They are closer than the train station. They cost more of course, but you get to see the villages from the sea.

If you can, stay in Cinque Terre instead of La Spezia! There is not much to see in La Spezia.

Great little three star hotel in the Centre of La Spezia, 10 min walk from the boats to the cinque terre and 12min walk from the old centre of town. The hotel is well signed and pretty easy to find. Room and bathroom were pretty small and spartan but clean and tidy and up to date. Reception staff was friendly. Breakfast was on par with many other Italian hotels of a similar standard ie (dry bread and pastries, some hams and cheese, yogurts etc. a nice touch was the coffee freshly made from the espresso machine), in other words the breakfast is ok but it won't blow your sock off and definately isn't up to the standard of big hotel breakfast buffets. Parking is available at E18 per day, which is on par with the on street parking fees.
