“all kinds of terrible”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

AVOID THIS HOTEL!! it's hard to even put in words how unsatisfactory this stay has been. i don't usually expect much from a hotel but this time it felt as if the whole experience was designed to get on one's nerve.. the first day we arrived late and tired and wanted to have a walk in by the sea, see the centre and go to a fish restaurant or so. the receptionist told us they run out of maps and gave us wrong directions. thus we ended up walking around the deserted industrial part of town. she can't tell left from right, we thought. in the morning tho i saw some tourist maps at her desk when I went to leave the key. who were they keeping them for? how much money did they save? anyway that night was ruined. the breakfast was extremely poor - no eggs,fruit or vegetables. needless to say, the room was very small,loud,smelled like sour and was packed with mosquitoes at all times.. the rest of the hotel stuff was also unhelpful and rude to a point where they leave you waiting for your key when you are soaking wet while they go on with their casual phone call as if they don't even notice your presence. this has been overall a stay my group shall regret for a while.

Good hotel with great central location and all comfort, good breakfast and personnel was kind.
parking is stupidly expensive at 18€ a day but few hundreds meters away on the street its free all night.
Bit noisy early morning due traffic.
Would surely go back.

Room Tip: ask one room not facing the street

Really friendly staff, very tidy and clean. On the downside there was quite a bit of road noise (where we were at least) and the bathroom is so teeny tiny. Good for a night or two day tripping to nearby Cinque Terre.

This is a litte hotel. The rooms towards the inner courtyard are quiet. Only noisy guests shouting by our door were disturbing.
The clerks at the reception are very kind and helpful, and speak English. The room where we stayed was modern and clean, with a little but well-working shower.
The hotel is placed close to the harbour in la Spezia. Very convenient to take the boats to Porto Venere and Cinque Terre.
The busses nr 3 and nr 5 leaving from the street next to the hotel (away from the hospital “ospedale”) are passing the train station. Remember to buy a ticket for the city (code 00).

Tried unsuccessfully to book a hotel online close to the cinque terre so the only way was to drive there and try to find one. We saw the sign for this hotel on the main road and were lucky to find a double room. The hotel is basic but has everything one needs for a night. Our room was quiet at the back of the hotel - even had a terrace. It was clean and comfortable. We parked our car in the reserved spaces outside the hotel but there is a garage. Breakfast was fine. The receptionist was very helpful showing us where we cound buy lunch close the hotel - how to get to the train station and where to find a restaurant for dinner. What more could one ask for at a very reasonable price. The hotel could do with some up- dating but that is reflected in the price.

Hotel is quite basic. We stayed in a triple room (33), and was very spartan and small for 3 (I believe they give you a double room with an extra bed, but charge 40% more ...). Definitely is overpriced for what they give you back.
Hotel area is 5-10 minute walk from boats to Cinque terre (that's the reason we chose it), but is half an hour from train station.... terrible if you don't have car and carrying luggage.
Also, at night it isn't a 'nice' area to walk around and everything was closed (and not well illuminated). Breakfast was ok (nothing special).
I'm sure we will try another place next time to have a better experience!

Much nicer inside than it appears from the outside. Clean. Conveniently located and reasonably priced. I recommend it and would come back. I walked to the nice small streets and it was a nice 5 minute walk. Breakfast was very reasonable
