“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

From the warm welcome extended by Luigi and other staff, to the extremely comfortable and quiet room, you just can't do better than the Doria Hotel. The hotel is perched up on a hillside overlooking the seaside Ligurian village of Lerici. A quick, five-minute walk down the paved walkway puts you right in the heart of town. Our room was clean and very quiet, and the bed was extremely comfortable. We had an extremely upscale bathroom with the most amazing shower! Plush towels and a big, terrycloth bathrobe were also there to make us feel pampered.

The Doria is renowned for its wonderful breakfast, which is included in the price of your room. We have stayed in many fine hotels in Europe, and few offer breakfasts that rival the one provided by the Doria. You can have freshly-squeezed orange juice, eggs, cold-cuts, cheeses, freshly-baked cakes and fruit tarts, brioche, cappucino, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, focaccia, and much more. The breakfast room is managed by extremely friendly, hard-working young women who want to make sure your morning gets off to a great start.

Room Tip: The rooms with a sea view are wonderful. If you can get a Junior Suite, you will be absolutely delig...

We arrived at the Doria Park after taking a water taxi from Porto Venere. The hotel is on top of a small hill. Upon arriving we were upgraded at no cost to a suite on the top floor. The room had a very large outdoor terrace with views of Lerici which were extraordinary. The staff at the hotel were very helpful. the room itself was somewhat small but a bit larger than other small European hotels we had stayed at. If you are looking for a charming high quality hotel in Lerici, I would highly recommend the Doria Park.

We have been staying is this hotel for many years now, every time we come back it is better in some way. This time we had the Jr Suite on the 6th floor, unbelievable view. The room was very nice with a large outside deck and jacuzzi. The staff is always great, especially Luigi !!

Very good hotel. 5 min from harbour/city centre. Very good, attentive reception staff. Rooms and lobby are a tad old fashioned and in need of reactualization! But this hotel is very comfortable, quiet, superb view of the Lerici bay/harbour. Ample parking space in their private street and access from Sarzana avoids you entering thru the ZTL zone and to get a fine! Breakfast is one the best I had in the last 3 years in a hotel. A wealth of choice, and superb freshness and quality. I can only recommend, after seeing all other options in the city this is by far the best choice.

The views from this hotel are outstanding and the terrace is very pleasant. The breakfast spread is more than generous (fresh squeezed orange juice, fresh cakes, pastry, yogurt, cheese, meat, fruit, etc). There was a mix-up on our room (we had booked a double instead of a triple), and the hotel staff on duty (Stephano) was very accommidating in getting an extra bed in our room. Other staff was less helpful when we asked for recommendations, however. The interiors are a bit dated and worn (think Boca Raton, Florida circa 1985), which is why I didn't give it a higher rating.

Room Tip: balcony facing the sea

Just returned from Italy, (September), 3 nights in Doria Park. The breakfast buffet was outstanding the best I had eaten the whole time I was in Italy. We had an excellent view of the water and the town and it was like staying in paradise. I had forgotten my very expensive camera on the terrace and realized it once I was 200 miles away. The staff went totally out of their way to ensure it was returned to me.
Thank you and thank you again.

Room Tip: have a view of the water and go to the upper levels.

Just returned from Lerici and we stayed at Doria Park for 4 nights, it is a lovely hotel and the front facing rooms have a beautiful view of the Gulf of Poets and Lerici harbour. The hotel itself is well presented with good furnishings and fittings, the beds are very comfortable and there are a few English speaking news channels on the TV. Our room (125) had a balcony with 2 chairs and a small table but the bathroom was quite small with shower,bidet,WC and washbasin but with ample storage space.
The breakfasts were fabulous with plenty of variety to suit all tastes but the fresh orange machine did have a few problems with large oranges!! but staff were on hand to correct the malfunction.
Reception staff were always courteous but reluctant to offer more than basic information when we enquired about buses and ferries etc and there was a shortage of information in the hotel and in Lerici itself.
The location of the hotel (80 steps up) from the main square will not suit everyone especially if they have mobility problems but there is a shuttle service provided.

Room Tip: Room 125 is on the first floor with a small balcony and beautiful views but the bathroom is compact...
