Was in the area for a family wedding, and there were not hotels available close enough so me and my partner stayed at the Astoria in La Spezia. It was August, and it was hot. very hot. and it smelt. La Spezia is not a particulary great area to be in and I dont recommend it that highly for tourists. There is alot of industrial parts to it and the harbour is not as pretty and many others near by.
This aside the main reason we did not enjoy our stay at the attitude of all staff we encountered. From the reception staff, to breakfast, to the cleaners, no one even cared we existed. We needed times and info on boats to nearby areas to schedule when we had to cross for the wedding, we were told they didnt have this information. There were leaflets we later found in the hotel with time tables on.
We were not given directions to our room when we arrived just 'up the stairs'. No offer of help with our bags either. The hotel has great promise and is in a nice building, but I would not stay here again if I was in the area.
