As soon as we arrived, I knew I'd made a great choice.First of all, you can park on the street in front of the hotel. Do not be turned away by the traffic cones, which caused my husband to drive away and get a bit lost.
Once inside, I was greeted warmly by the front desk attendant. She called my husband and helped guide him back to the hotel ~ already above and beyond, and we hadn't even checked in!
Our room was tidy, fairly simple furniture but very clean. The view of the harbor from the balcony was irresistable! (We took this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PhxlZlUYqic). You can see the beach, boats & ferry, houses built into the mountains, etc. Just lovely atmosphere.
Amenities are good ~ nice shower and plenty of room in the bathroom. A desk, safe and sturdy outside shutters made our stay quiet and comfortable and I got a good night's sleep. Breakfast was pretty elaborate, with many choices on the buffet table and coffee or cappuccino service. '
Overall, I don't have a single complaint about this hotel ~ the staff was very friendly and spoke English well. They gave good recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing. And Lerici is the perfect place from which to tour the cinque terre ~ just take the ferry from the harbor and sightsee to your heart's content. You can return on the ferry, or take the L or S bus from La Spezia back to Lerici.
