“Very close to train station!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We arrived in La Spezia with no hotel booked and ended up walking around and found Hotel Venezia. It had free parking (which was a huge bonus) and had a reasonable rate. No wifi. Decor was a little dated, but it was fine (and quiet). It was just a short walk to the train station, to take the train to Cinque Terre.

The location is very close to the train station. IT is on the same street. As you exit the train station turn left and just walk down the street. Voila, you are there. It is not noisy at all even though it is so close to the station. The hotel is very clean and the price is very reasonable and you get a very good breakfast consisting of blood orange juice, coffee/tea, croissant, toasts and cereals. The location is great and you can visit Cinque Terre with the park pass for 10 euro and ride the train all day. Within 10 minutes walk you can go on a bus and get to Portovenere in less than 30 minutes. The waterfront of La Spezia is gorgeous. The seafood place there is full of locals and tastes great. Have a lovely time there. I did.

We just stayed there last night. The front desk was a little intimidating, since the guy working there was out buying cigarettes and had left a non-English speaking friend to cover for him. But when he returned, he gave us a pretty good rate compared to the high prices just up the street. The two rooms were tiny, but very clean and comfortable. Showers were big and powerful. (very nice) The breakfast was included and VERY nice. We were waited on by very friendly staff and the overall experience was very good.

Room Tip: the front (street side) may not have so much train noise.

The Ritz this ain't! BUT for the price & location right next to the station this was perfect for me.
The hotel manager is a grump & I felt like I was an annoyance for him showing up, but I managed to get a slight grin out of him as I was leaving!
It was clean, quiet & overlooked the centre of town...what more could you want?
The room was small & the bed like a fold out, but I slept like a baby & breakfast was fine.
Great for 1 night but I certainly wouldn't have stayed longer...it was my launch pad for the stunning Cinque Terre & cheap, cheap, cheap!

First I'll get the negatives out of the way. The room was the smallest I've seen that didn't have brooms in it - if you are thinking of swinging a cat, look elsewhere. The hot water came only very slowly, our toilet lid came off in my wife's hand and the seat looked like it might cause serious injury at any moment. The bedroom furnishings looked as if they'd been bought at an MFI closing down sale and the wardrobe, in particular, I'm sure, had been assembled by a one eyed man with no thumbs!

Now the positives. The Hotel is yards from the Railway Station ( a ten minute train ride to the Cinque Terre) and only ten minutes walk, through shopping streets, to the harbour, yet is very quiet at night and seems to be in a very safe area. (maybe August gives a false impression, what with Italians all going on holiday at the same time). We were able to park, without charge, right outside the front door although this was only possible because a member of staff kindly held up traffic and prevented anyone else from pinching the only available space. The lobby area is bright, clean and well furnished and, as a previous reviewer said, the staff seemed to treat it as their own lounge but were on their feet the minute you walked in to see if you needed anything.

Although very small and basic, our room was clean, quiet and remarkably comfortable. It even had a balcony looking out onto the street and square below. Breakfast was one of the better ones we've had in Italy and was served by a member of staff who was always friendly and talkative and made coffee to order on the spot - no helping yourself from a lukewarm brew made an hour ago! All the staff were extremely welcoming and friendly and, returning to our room mid morning on the first full day, we found one of them coming away with a spanner - on looking in the bathroom we had a brand new toilet seat and lid; all without asking!

If you are after space, luxury, and high quality furnishings this isn't for you. But, if you want a reasonably priced, spotlesssly clean, place to sleep for a couple of nights to visit La Spezia or the Cinque Terre then Hotel Venezia will be hard to beat.

After arriviing at our appartment to find it swimming in water we needed somewhere to stay for 3 nights within walking distance. The Venezia proved to be an excellent choice and excellent value for money. Although the room may be described as more functional than comfortable it was spotless and bright. The en suite shower room had a good hot shower and the heating was good with the central heating radiators being on from 7 30 p m to 7 30 am with an additional remote controlled hot air heating/air con unit available. A continental breakfast was included in the price and served in a pleasant breakfast room by a very nice and helpful lady. Although close to the railway station we had three undisturbed nights sleep. All in all a very welcome suprise and an excellent base for people wishing to visit the cinque terre.
