We stayed one night at Hotel Nella. The room was comfortable (very good bed), very clean, very quiet and reception staff was very friendly. The Hotel is quite close to La Spezia where you can take the train for Cinque Terre so it's very conveniently located. It's outside the town on a hill so you need to allow 15' to... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights during our Italy road-trip. We choosed this one due to the location near the "Cinque Terre" were we planned a boat trip. The hotel is only reachable by car and has friendly staff, free parking, free wifi (with a very good bandwith) and clean but simple rooms. Breakfast is OK but not... More

I have been debating with myself how many stars would be fair for this hotel and I have decided on five. Perfect if travelling by car with buckets of parking available. Working against my rating is the fact we had a tiny room that challenged the logistics of finding space to put a second suitcase. Accommodation also basic but now... More

I have stayed here several times when in La Spezia for business, and I adore this hotel. Very friendly, very clean, very centrally located, and free parking. The rooms are not modern, but very clean and very functional. The bathroom was impeccable each time I stayed. It is fully equipped. I eat breakfast in the dining room which is always... More

For our excursion to the Cinque Terre last September we stayed at Hotel Nella, a non-smoking 29-room hotel on the hills north of La Spezia, just 3 kms from the train station. Although rooms are rather small, they are clean and comfortable and not a problem for a short stay. The hotel has good rates and offers free parking and... More

Pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Plentiful parking in the lot right across the street. We booked a smaller room (10mx10m) but it was comfortable and efficient. It faced the road but as there was little traffic, it was very quiet. Bathroom was nice with the biggest shower we have had on our trip. Staff spoke english (and french) and were... More

Refreshingly honest. No pretentious rubbish! Great value for money, good selection of breakfast items, friendly staff and free parking. Wifi is great and the location is good with a small walk you can view the entire city from above, really very scenic. Bathroom could be small but 100% functional. Everting works as it should with satellite tv. Restaurant below is... More
