Small but comfortable and very clean room. Best shower we've had in days!! Above average linens. Plentiful breakfast. Very friendly and helpful staff. A welcome respite even though a bit of an effort for us to get by car to train station to visit Cinque Terre. Staff very helpful with recommendations for getting there.

We stayed one night at Hotel Nella. The room was comfortable (very good bed), very clean, very quiet and reception staff was very friendly. The Hotel is quite close to La Spezia where you can take the train for Cinque Terre so it's very conveniently located. It's outside the town on a hill so you need to allow 15' to... More

I have been debating with myself how many stars would be fair for this hotel and I have decided on five. Perfect if travelling by car with buckets of parking available. Working against my rating is the fact we had a tiny room that challenged the logistics of finding space to put a second suitcase. Accommodation also basic but now... More

For our excursion to the Cinque Terre last September we stayed at Hotel Nella, a non-smoking 29-room hotel on the hills north of La Spezia, just 3 kms from the train station. Although rooms are rather small, they are clean and comfortable and not a problem for a short stay. The hotel has good rates and offers free parking and... More

Pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Plentiful parking in the lot right across the street. We booked a smaller room (10mx10m) but it was comfortable and efficient. It faced the road but as there was little traffic, it was very quiet. Bathroom was nice with the biggest shower we have had on our trip. Staff spoke english (and french) and were... More
