“A very good find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Tried unsuccessfully to book a hotel online close to the cinque terre so the only way was to drive there and try to find one. We saw the sign for this hotel on the main road and were lucky to find a double room. The hotel is basic but has everything one needs for a night. Our room was quiet at the back of the hotel - even had a terrace. It was clean and comfortable. We parked our car in the reserved spaces outside the hotel but there is a garage. Breakfast was fine. The receptionist was very helpful showing us where we cound buy lunch close the hotel - how to get to the train station and where to find a restaurant for dinner. What more could one ask for at a very reasonable price. The hotel could do with some up- dating but that is reflected in the price.

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

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).

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.
