Hotel was convenient to La Spezia Centrale station (walking distance) and downtown. It made our trip to Cinque Terre so pleasant to come back to the comfortable and well-appointed and cared for room. Breakfast was generous and filled with
variety, from cereals, fruits,juices,jams, jellies, butter, breads, teas and coffee to croissants, scrambled and boiled eggs, bacon, sliced meats and cheeses. The hotel lobby is inviting and comfortable; staff was efficient and helpful with directions and suggestions. The price was excellent for the quality and convenience of this hotel. The room was quiet in spite of the facility being at a very busy intersection. I would recommend this to anyone traveling around the Cinque Terre area.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short drive from hotel
Get the Cinque Terre train and hike ticket at the train station and take two days to travel through the five towns, returning each night to La Spezia for a lovely hotel and dining experience. Make travel plans for late summer or early fall, but no later than November as you will then miss the boat trip that runs along the coastal towns of Cinque Terre (different perspective than the hike). Enjoy the towns for perfect food, wine and little travel mementos.
