We stayed at this hotel for three nights. It's in the outskirts of La Spezia and an ideal location to visit the Cinque Terre region. Parking is free and just 10 minutes away from the train station. Room was very spacious, clean and comfortable while breakfast had a good choice of items. The adjacent restaurant (which is NOT part of...

Hotel is in La Foce just on the outskirts of la Spezia overlooking the town Simple location providing ample parking and easy travel down to La Spezia by car without all the hassle that being in a major town brings. Excellent base for Cinque Terre as driving to the railway station and parking could not be easier. Hotel itself is...

We recently stayed at Hotel Nella on a trip to visit Cinque Terre and we were very pleased with this hotel. The location was a few kilometers outside of La Spezia, which honestly, was a relief. The area is quiet and it was nice to refuge after busy traveling. The staff is excellent and were friendly and helpful throughout our...

The highlight of our visit was a wonderful evening meal in the restaurant that adjoins the hotel, in particular the home made ravioli and the roasted vegetables, one of the best meals so far on our travels. The room was comfortable and clean with air conditioning and a very good bathroom, breakfast was also good with a wide choice and...

The hotel is in a rural setting, so it is fairly quiet, but remote from attractions in La Spezia and Cinque Terre. Room was large enough, but bedding was uncomfortable. Reception staff was friendly and helpful. Shower was too small to serve its purpose.

Nothing fancy, don't expect anything modern, but the room was clean with A/C and wifi. Great breakfast selection. Great place if you're driving, free parking was appreciated. Really helpful guy at reception advised us on the best way to see Cinque Terre. Restaurant next door stays open till late and does a good pizza too!

We stayed here 3 nights earlier this month. We booked a room for 4 but ended up having an extra person. The staff was nice enough to add a bed and let us all stay in the same room--for an added charge, but it is well worth it. The breakfast is amazing! You always read about how "light" the breakfasts...

The hotel is out of the way but with a car is a nice quiet location. The rooms are very basic but at least they are a good size. The male staff were great, quite helpful and informative. The others were less so. The interactions and service was entertaining if not on occasion comical. The bathroom is without doubt the...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I'm glad to have been helpfull during your stay.

This hotel is very solid with more goods than bads: the room isnt particularly charming and the bathroom is really small. But it has aircondition and it is nice and clean.
