#1 of 23 hotels in La Spezia
La viuzza stretta tinteggiata di un bel rosso ligure, che tanto ricorda i “carruggi“ di tanti villaggi del Golfo dei Poeti e che conduce al piccolo boutique art hotel, annuncia le peculiarità del luogo: silenzio, lentezza, riserbo, misura. Qui, nel cuore della città vecchia, nei primi decenni del XX secolo si celebrava, nascosti, al riparo dalla curiosità, il rito dell’amore occasionale, del sesso a pagamento. L’edificio a due piani, appoggiato ad una piazzetta, che a sorpresa si scopre alla vista e che oggi ospita una reception e nove camere immacolate, era una casa di piacere. Il punto di partenza ideale per una splendida vacanza nel Golfo dei Poeti, a poca distanza dalle Cinque Terre, Lerici, Porto Venere e le vallate della Provincia della Spezia. La stazione ferroviaria (dalla quale raggiungere le Cinque Terre in meno di 10 minuti) e l’imbarco dei battelli turistici distano solo 5 minuti a piedi. The narrow lane painted a beautiful Ligurian red, which is so reminiscent of the “caruggi” of many villages in the Gulf of Poets and which leads to the small boutique art hotel, announces the peculiarities of the place: silence, slowness, reserve, measure. Here, in the heart of the old city, in the first decades of the twentieth century, the ritual of occasional love, paid sex, was celebrated, hidden away from curiosity. The two-storey building, leaning against a small private square, which is surprisingly discovered by sight and which houses a reception and nine stainless rooms, was in the past a pleasure house. The ideal starting point for a splendid holiday in the Gulf of Poets, not far from the Cinque Terre, Lerici, Porto Venere and the valleys of the Province of La Spezia. The railway station (from which you can reach the Cinque Terre in less than 10 minutes) and the boarding of tourist boats are just a 5-minute walk away.

A boutique hotel is defined by its tasteful rooms and general ambience (decoration, quality of furniture, etc.). The only worthy part of this establishment is its façade. As you may see in the attached photos, the furniture in my room were cheap, the plaster on the walls was chipping and in the (big) bathroom the tiles were all PAINTED grey, which, evidently, lead to peeling off the moment you accidentally put your nails on them. Moreover, a hotel: 1. has a reception that caters for the needs of the guests. In our case, the reception was both days absent after early evening hours. When there was an internet break down, there was noone from the hotel staff to give some guidance or explanation to the guests, who, to their despair, were in the lobby trying to figure out what to do. 2. does not run out of clean glasses in the middle of breakfast (09:00). Not to forget the stains on the sheets (see relevant photo). As far as the young man that had the role of the receptionist (not after evening hours of course..), he scarcely followed the mandatory measures concerning COVID 19 (wearing a mask). The only not disappointing part of my stay was the location of the establishment, right in the city centre. Based on all the above, I am afraid that I do not recommend this accommodation.

We needed a central base between the station and the harbour in La Spezia and this hotel was spot on. Basic facilities and breakfast but very clean and we had a nice room with huge bathroom. A great base to visit the Cinque Terre which is a must and also good for shopping. The only downside with covid is that masks were mandatory both indoors and outdoors which spoiled our visit but not the hotel's fault.

We arrived in La Spezia and the Novocento was only a short walk from the train station. The hotel is centrally located with it's own courtyard area, and so close to the main shopping and eating areas. The staff were friendly and helpful and put on a good breakfast each morning.

Stayed in the family suite which consisted of 2 rooms, full kitchen (fridge and Nespresso machine), laundry and an updated bathroom. The view from the small balcony off one room and fully openable windows off the other was brilliant. Very spacious, comfortable and clean. The breakfast was down the road in the main hotel breakfast and consisted of bread (could be better), focaccia, tart, croissants, cereals, yoghurts and cold meats. Coffee on offer as well. Breakfast was good. When booking this place there should be a better explanation on how to get to it as the suite is totally separate from the hotel there was no one at the location to let us in and required some phone calls until a staff member came to let us in. All in all excellent stay.

First and foremost a big shout out to Stephen! This young man walked/ran over a mile to find us and help us walk to the hotel after we got lost. Talk about service! To get to the hotel you must walk down a small alleyway which was a bit disconcerting until you arrive and realize how quiet and safe it is. The hotel is quaint yet quirky. It is truly like staying and a relative’s home! There are only a handful os rooms. There is no elevator so if you do not want to carry your bags ups a flight of steps you should request a room on the first floor. Our room was upstairs and it was easy to get our bags up there with Stephen’s help. The room was cozy with an attached bath. Walls are a little thin though. There is no front desk or hotel staff at night. You are provided with keys to open the 2 front doors as well as your room key. Breakfast buffet is small but delicious and more than adequate. Location is perfect...5 minute walk from the train station, 8 minute walk to the harbor for boats to Cinque Terre, and right around the corner from restaurants and shopping.
