My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Hotel Corallo in La Spezia. We wanted to visit the Cinqueterre region of Italy and were unable to find the right accomodations. Either too remote or too expensive. The Corallo was a gamble, but turned out to be worth it.
La Spezia is a great "home base" for Cinqueterre visitors. The train station has several trains an hour heading towards those towns. Keep in mind that this is not a bustling metropolis. We had to wait quite a while for a taxi when we arrived by train.
Upon check-in we were shown to a sparse, but spacious room on the second floor. Please note there is no elevator that we saw. Our room did have doors to a patio with chairs. View not worth mentioning, but nice to be able to go outside. Bathroom was large by Italian hotel standards with enclosed shower.
The staff was all extremely helpful, especially the attendant in the evening. He provided restaurant reccomendations and info on the Cinqueterre. He told us which bus to take to get to the train station for our excursions. They even made suggestions for other places to visit in the area. Breakfast was excellent with homemade filled croissants, proscuitto and breads. You are able to get a choice of coffee drinks (we suggest the cappuchino).
Another thing to keep in mind about La Spezia is that the town shuts down early. Many stores close at 5pm, and restaurants don't stay open very late. We had trouble one night while looking for something open after 9pm. The main square has a gelato bar, but don't expect to be a night owl.
Hotel was only 95 Euro a night for our stay on an Italian holiday weekend. Definately worth the price for a clean, quiet hotel. Great staff and location!
