“Good location as a base for Cinque Terre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Got given a room with four beds for the two of us so plenty of space.
Ask for a room facing the courtyard so you can keep the windows open.
Rooms are basic but clean.
Staff friendly and helpful.
Wifi worked, although I had to keep logging in.
The location just outside the railway station is brilliant for exploring Cinque Terre. Mind that there is actually a life from the station down to the street. So stairs can be avoided.
Breakfast was the usual fare. My only complaint is that the breakfast area needs a proper deep clean. Everything a bit manky with finger prints, crumbs, etc.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We stayed here for three nights and really liked it. The staff are very helpful in all areas. I was having trouble with my Kindle Fire and Luca, who was the day desk man, sorted it all out for me. He and Paula were able to tell us the best way to get around by train and looked up the schedule for us, letting us know that some of the stations were closed. They were able to tell us good, affordable places to eat and the best places the see while we were in the other villages. The breakfast was good, the cappuccino excellent. Everything was clean and comfortable. We will definitely stay here again when we return to that area.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Stayed three nights the summer of 2008.
This hotel is very dull and old. The room was a bit prisonlike :-) Essentially you get what you pay for. A room to sleep in. But the location is very good. Not far from the train station or La Spezi a`s main street. It is a perfect base for exploring Cinque Terre.

The man in the reception: The owner? Anyway, he made my stay here. He was Basil Fawlty`s lazy brother. "aa you want to pay for another night already? aaa then I have use the credi card machine...We can wait until tomorrow" And he actually sighed loudly. He was hilarious. Everytime I went though the reception area he sat in the lounge watching TV.

The hotel was clean, staff were very friendly and helpful, with travel advice and service. There was an excellent comprehensive breakfast provided and the hotel is very convenient to the La Spezia train station.

Great location across from the train station and great price. The room was spacious and very clean and breakfast was good. We used this hotel as a base to commute to Cinque Terre villages. I would recommend La Spezia as the accommodations are cheaper, lots of activities in the evening and easy access to Cinque Terre.

Room was huge with a small bathroom. You couldn't open the window to the room because it overlooked the main street. Breakfast was edible. They could do with fresh bread/rolls though. Upside - across from the train station. Not noisy at all. Walking distance into town and shops.
