  • 4 of 5

The apartment was clean and really close to the railway. However, the most important problem we encountered was the fact that the advert says garage is provided and all charges are included in the price, whereas in fact garage costs additional 40 EUR and generally is provided subject to availability, since owner has two apartments and only one garage. We communicated this to the owner and repeat it here - the information on the site should be amended accordingly, otherwise it is misleading.

"Very comfortable apartment in a very convenient location near the station. The kitchen has everything you need to cook. There are many stores and restaurants nearby. La Spezia is a lovely city with a lot to see. This is also a convenient location for visiting Cinque Terre, Parma and Genoa. The landlord is very helpful with everything."

"Very good location two steps away from the Stazione (trains) that makes it very usuful and easy-to-get to. The only disadvantage would be the 4th floor and no lift but if you're there to walk in the mountains that's a brilliant training."

  • 5 of 5

"An excellent location whether you wish to explore La Spezia or hop the train for Cinque Terre. The apartment was efficient and clean. Only downsides (and very minor) are a small shower even by Italian standards and the kitchen lacked a sharp knife for cutting vegetables/breads - even with these, we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Nice place."

  • 5 of 5

Appart idéal pour visiter les 5 terres et les environs, à 2 pas de la gare, proche de toutes commodités,des commerces et de bons restos.

Bonne surprise: il y avait un micro-ondes.

Dommage, literie pas assez ferme pour ceux qui ont mal au dos et manque peut-être un égouttoir pour la vaisselle, mais globalement bien équipé avec la clim (indispensable en été) et un module wifi très pratique prêté pour être connecté partout.

Attention 4 étages sans ascenseur...

Sinon proprio très sympa, pas mesquin sur les accessoires(produits d'entretien, linges...)ponctuel, parlant anglais et français.

Je recommande donc cette location.

Good location.

  • 4 of 5

M. Lorenzo was a very good host. The apartment is small but perfect for a couple. It is on the 4th. floor no elevator, but you have a great view and good air, even in July we did not have to turn the air conditionner on, just open the window to enjoy. But most of all, it is so close to the train station, just perfect to visit Cinque Terre.
