We arrived and were warmly welcomed by owner Andrea and his friendly, professional staff. We were offered complimentry wine, just to settle the "travel nerves". Our rental car was secured close to the hotel, all courtesy of Andrea. He has a new parking garage, just for his guests right behind the hotel. This is a real prize for those who use their own transportation because parking in Cinque Terre is IMPOSSIBLE. The great thing is you can forget about the hasstle of parking while you visit Cinque Terre. Yet, your car is close by when Andrea sends you to one of his favorite ristorantes. Don't dismiss his suggestions on food. He is the quintessential connoisseur of fine dining. Through his guidance, we have tried food we would never have eaten and we're glad we took the leap. He has broadened our palates to so many good dishes, we can't thank him enough.
The rooms were clean and felt like they were new. We had a beautiful view up and down the Italian Riviera beach. This is our fourth stay with the La Spiaggia family and I can't wait to return after I flush up my travel fund. A stay at La Spiaggia is a must for those who want to see Cinque Terre from the inside!

We stayed with two other couples at La Spiaggia Hotel in Monterosso Al Mare in early June. The rooms were very nice, clean and it was right at the beach. I'm convinced that you will not be disappointed. The owner, Andrea Poggi, is extremely helpful with restaurant and sight seeing recommendations. All of the people were extremely friendly as well. Good breakfast is included. Our room had a great view, even though it wasn't facing the beach.

Albergo La Spiaggia is very close to the rail station. This was important to us since we planned to use the trains often in our visits to the Cinque Terre towns. We did nearly all of our walking in and around the hilly streets of 5T and only walked from Riomaggiore to Manarola.

The breakfast at La Spiaggia was terrific. Each day there was fresh bread at the table when we arrived. There was excellent caffe, cornflakes or muesli, juices, croissants, jam, bread, butter, hard-boiled eggs, brie, sliced cheese and salami. Someone said that the breakfast there was one of the very best in Europe.

I had prepared our itinerary in advance, so we had little need to have contact with Andrea and Maria. Although we did meet with Andrea our last night there, and thenext morning prior to our departure he presented us with a bottle of his very own Vino Rosso La Spiaggia.

The walk on the street by the beach was lovely. There were many excellent restaurants and gelaterias near the hotel. And the view from our second floor balcony was wonderful. Our was very small, but the large balcony more than made up for it.

I would definitely return to this hotel. Location, view and excellent breakfast.

Cinque Terre & La Spaggia was a great introduction to our first holiday in Italy. My husband & I were travelling with two of my friends from Australia & we just loved our 5 days at La Spaggia. From my first contact with Maria I guessed we were in for a unique experience. Maria & Ella at reception are so warm, friendly & obliging anxious to assist wherever possible. Andre is like the 'big daddy', ready to share his wealth of knowledge of the area, suggesting restaurants & any question you have for him , he has the answer, even down to times of trains & routes to get you to Portofino & anywhere else you would like to go to. The rooms at La Spaggia are very clean & comfortable however a little smallish, as most rooms in Italy are.. This doesn't matter as there is so much to do in the Cinque Terre as you only shower & sleep in your room. The location is excellent & close to everything including the beach right at your doorstep. We had wonderful food experiences including the 'stuffed anchovies' at 'the Belvedere' -- delicious. AND of course Cinque Terre is not complete without the walks - something really special, especially from Monterosso to Vernazza. Marg De , Sydney, Australia

Room Tip: Our room on 2nd floor overlooking sidestreet fine.

We had a wonderful experience at Hotel La Spiaggia. As many of the reviews comment, Andrea is unbelievably personable and helpful. The location of this hotel is ideal - wonderful view of the ocean and within steps to the beach, restaurant and shops. We would go back to this hotel without hesitation.

Call in advance if possible as they have a limited number of ocean front rooms. If you are unable to get one of those rooms, no worries though as this hotel is right on the beach. Traveling around was easy from this hotel as it is within walking distance to gelaterias, restaraunts, the beach, hiking trails, and perhaps most importantly, the train! If you have any questions or concerns, talk with Ella at the front desk. She is there most of the time and extremely helpful and welcoming :)

Room Tip: Make reservations in advance!

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed out 2 nights stay at this warm, friendly hotel. The sea view from our room was fantastic and the balcony an added bonus to further enjoy the views.
It is such a perfect location too as it is an easy two minute walk from the railway station and just 5 minutes from the Old Town and the start of the walk to Vernazza, the next town on the Cinque Terre.
After walking along the trail, we were so happy that we had chosen Monterosso (and especially Hotel La Spiaggia) to stay at as it had such a lovely beach.
We can only re-iterate what all the previous reviews have said about the helpfulness of Andrea and his daughter, Maria. They made what would always have been an enjoyable experience absolutely perfect.
Our stay at Hotel La Spiaggia was fantastic and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.
