The view was very beautiful. It compares with Bellagio. The mattress was not comfortable. Very stiff.
Simple, clean central -
Near the beach, calm surroundings The personal seemed to be very tired of tourists. Didnt feel welcome at all. Bad bed. The cleaning ladys were friendly.
Very serviceminded staff. Felt good in the Hotel
The hotel is in a beautiful setting facing the Marina of Bocca di Magra. Opposite is a fantastic restaurant which is definitely worth a visit. It is a great location if you are arriving by boat - moorings are very close to the hotel. We had a room at the back with wonderful views over the moutains. The hotel and room are furnished in a traditional style - not luxury but very nice and very clean. You really do need a car to stay in Bocca di Magra if you plan to explore the area. There is also only a very small private beach at the end of the marina. We would recommend the hotel as a base for exploring the area.
Very good position in Bocca di Magra. The staff is welcoming. Above average breakfast. Rooms are clean. Prices applied are fair. The position of the hotel in Bocca di magra... I mean difficulty to park in town. Although to be fair this has nothing to do with the hotel but is a general comment for all the hotels in town. Rooms, single bed, are rather small, especially the bathroom.
Lovely hotel, very quaint
The hotel is situated in a very friendly village with a beautiful view our the sea. Unfortunately the village does not have any beaches. The staff was absolute not friendly, no information about the hotel, the village or the surrounding was given at check in. No "thank you and goodbye"at departure. The hotel has a few rooms with balcony and sea view. Make sure you reserve one of these rooms because the other rooms do not have any bacony or possiblity to sit outside (except for the garden of the hotel which is available for hotel guests). We requested a room with sea view but did get a room on the back-side of the hotel overlooking the roof of the restaurant. Changing was not possible anymore.
Its location adjacent to mountains and sea. Its cleanliness and general comfort and the quiet natue of the surrounding area One thing only- breakfast was not available until 8am.
We only stayed one night, arriving very late, though they were waiting for us to cheque in. Very nice people, friendly and helpful. The room had really nice view of the river, spacious and quiet. maybe a rethinking of the design would help a lot and improvement of the quality of the sheets as well. The hotel had no elevator, but thanks to their help with the luggage no problem at all.
Wonderful location on river at sea mouth - picturesque with boating, swimming, sunbaking, cruises & fishing - situated with mountains on both sides and heritage buildings to visit by both and vehicle. Great staff & hosts. Still a secret.
Perfect location with terrace overlooking the see and the river Magra, nice familylike atmosphere. The building is newly renowated with element of disign. The room is quite big comparing with most typical italian hotels and had realy 2 rooms! Very clean. Close to 5 Terre Park. Free parking. Good restarant in the hotel. Not very good sound proofing. the staff could speak a little bit more English.
A great view from the balcony - the sea, river, mountains, a great place for evening relax. Friendly staff, but with low English proficiency. Hotels surroundings the relatively quiet, public transport and boots to Lerici and Porto-Venere are very close, but their accuracy can not be relied upon. Triple consist of two rooms and single room include table, wardrobe, a bed and a space to move. Information about the hotel room and the services offered only in Italian. Very small shower. If you want to manage your time on the best, needs a car.
First impressions were a little disappointing, we arrived and had to walk through restaurant to the reception.The room appeared cramped ( a table and chairs in front of the wardrobe made access awkward ) and the bathroom shower appeared small. Our initial fears were allayed however on opening the terrace door, the terrace was roomy enough for 2 loungers, a table, and 4 chairs. The view from this terrace could not have been bettered, the Magra river flowing into the Med. on one side and the Apuan Alps on the other. ( we also had a shared balcony on the river side. ) As our week progressed we grew to love the Stella, It's not 5 star luxury but a charming family run hotel, the staff were always helpful and friendly,and the breakfasts good. Upon reflection we had no complaints at all.
Location, Kind staff, The breakfast could be improved with more variety of food, having the opportunity to eat otside would be nice too..
Personnel very kind, hall with some interesting design features. Check in clerk inexperieneced didn't know where our room was an once it was found as it was outside a terace he locked the terrace window and left us locked out! Poor breakfast, not really value for money.
Extremely friendly and helpfull staff and a very good restaurant. A very stylish and relaxing place. The location was a bit remote (closest city 5 km) and a car would have been useful.
Large swimming pool. Really spacious rooms. A 4-stars hotel without internet access or even a photocopier? One of our rooms smelled not really clean, and had a lot of mosquitos (not much in use?). The other room was ok.
friendly helpful owner, very good evening menu, lovely pool, good location for beach and near sarzana an amazing old town
Really kind manager / staff, hotel located closed to the beach Not the best furnitures / rooms, but regarding to the paied prices it is more than okay
A well designed building ( and rooms), helpful staff and good atmosphere.
Staff are very friendly and helpful indeed Clean comfy rooms with a very good view a bit far from major tourist attractions, you would definitely need a car.
the staff....the best i ever seen the price seen a little to big
The pool. The breakfast. The fresh crisp bedlinen and clean bathroom. The staff were kind and attentive, thank you for a lovely stay. I thought the lunch (salad and club sandwich and bottle of water) was a little overpriced at 23 euros. There were no guest reviews to read.
Very friendly and cosy hotel situated off the bitten tracks, but with normal comfort. And the low price caused by distance from cities (really nothing by car) is the strong point. The Italian breakfast and the narrow road from the main route are just things to be noted - not the weaknesses. 5 of 5!!!
It is a very pleasant landscape around the hotel, it is quiet and very nice.
ok for this price
Good views Not convenient,noisy!
Very good view from window Breakfast, because everything packed.
view of mountains indoor decoration, breakfast,
cheap price mutch noise between the rooms,but was quet in the nights.small room .poor breakfast-not easy to find with gps
Balcony, clean, view, peace and quiet a little of the beaten path
We stayed for one night only. Our intentions were to visit Cinque Terre and the hotel is close enough (10km) from La Spezia which was the starting point for our journey. It is located up in a mountain village and the view from the window was amazing. The breakfast was not one of the best, but this was compensated by the fact that we totally enjoyed our staying there. There is not many option to choose from for a dinner - actually there is only one ve-e-e-ery local place which closes around 22:00 so if you want to have a late dinner you should drive down to the closest village.
The friendly assisstance given by the staff when I encountered a problem making an international phone call. The convenient location to the beach at Lerici. Parking was very limited & breakfast could be improved by using "fresh" baked items in lieu of pre-packaged.
Very nice, clean and quiet. All furniture and equipment was new and working. Comfortable room and kitchen. Nice big pool. difficult to find even with GPS. Bigger and brighter directing signs would be very helpful.
wonderful brand new hotel with very beautiful rooms. kitchenette was very good, the building was great inside and out, and air conditioner saved whether it was hot or cold. simply excellent! was very tricky to find. gps doesnt know this street, google maps send to a different location which is 10 minutes away. had to call hotel staff and basically come and pick us up from the place we were at.
New and very nice place. Good room decor and design. Friendly personal. We liked it more than previous 4* hotel. Kitchen and about 300 meters to supermarket. I think, it was best place in our trip. Problem with search of hotel. Hard to find and sign isn't too bright...
Parking adjacent, pleasant grounds, very clean, warm and all in working order None we could find.
I've been there for just one night but I liked quietness, kind staff and suitable services even if in familiar way. There's also a nice pool with beach umbrellas and deskchairs room furnishing quite old and poor but suitable (maybe that room is in the older annex of the hotel)
Matter of fact, no nonsense hotel with smart, clean but basic rooms. Not brilliant for beach and nightlife unless you have a car. Pool was fine. Restaurant looked like a school canteen but didn't eat so food quality unknown. Bar was available and service well intentioned if limited. Broadly Italian based clientale. Hotel seemed to be running on budget - there were no efforts made to staff poolside bar or provide menu service. In short, good value option but don't expect English speaking, full ammenity hotel.
for us it was an easy stay on our way from italy to the Norh, cheap and clean, absoltely not a romantic hotel the breakfast: never had such a bad coffee and the table was made during our breakfast (about 9.30, not so early)
Nice spacious room for two adults and two kids. Kid friendly hotel. Nice swimming pool. Closed perimeter. Friendly staff. No extra costs.
Quiet hotel but well situated
Nice and clean rooms, we had one with two small balconies where we ate dinner, since our little kid was asleep at the time. Great pool and a playground in the backyard. Location is in the middle of low houses and you have no view other than towards the pool.
Very friendly staff. Good breakfast. Beautiful area outside with very clean pool. Walking distance to the beach. The room was spacious and clean.
It's location was perfect for my business trip, meaning I did not have long distance to travel after breakfast. Although the rooms are clean, it is quite a basic hotel. I would not use the word luxury to describe it.
Peacefullness and high quality. Excellent service and restaurant. Also gluten-free diet possible. The beds were a little bit too hard.
Near to Cinque Terre, nice swimming pool, friendly and helpfull staff, big family room, nice restaurants in the neighbourhood Breakfast could be better; less sweet cakes and and more choices in bread and/ or sandwich filling like cheese etc.
The hotel staff was very nice and went out of their way to be helpful to us.
Location was very good. Close to areas of outstanding natural beauty and also beaches and marinas.
Stuff hospitality outstanding. Absolutely fitted expectations and corresponded to the purposes imposed. Calm place. Perfect for those who dont like big noisy cities. In relative proximity to tourist POI (Pisa 59 km). 5 minutes from seaside. Nice pool in the hotel. Some complications with places on the nearby private beaches during the daytime. Nice to have own foldable chairs and umbrella.
Nice room in lovely setting The rain!!
It was a perfect stay! The rooms were lovely, very individually decorated with antique tuscan furniture, the bathrooms were gorgious... everything was very clean. High quality breakfast was served on the terrace. The staff was extremely nice and helpful - our special thank you to Fabio, who contributed in making our stay so particular. We had a wonderful evening with wine tasting and great food. The estate produces great white wines. We highly recommend "La Ghiaia" to all conoisseurs. Being close to the cities of Sarzana and La Spezia the resort offers lots of possibilities to discover the beautiful Cinque Terre and the famous "Golfo dei Poeti". We will certainly come again...
small place, quiet, only six suits. very intimate, nice open view. big room nice design. espresso machine in the room.. late breakfast , start only at 8:30
The Tenuta La Ghiaia (Resort La Ghiaia) was simply fantastic! Fabio was so friendly and helpful. He gave us a wonderful tour the wine making facility and a very nice wine tasting afterwards. Fabio also gave us some wonderful recommendations for dinner and places to see outside of Sarzana. We were able to experience the area as locals do, which is exactly what we had in mind. The resort was quiet and peaceful and the scenery was beautiful. Staying here made me want to relocate permanently to Italy!
We had no airconditioning in our bedroom. The information from surrounding area was from 2015. No dinner offered - the bottle of wine in the room is not announced with a price. Breakfast quite poor, no fruits, in such a beautiful garden I would have loved to have breakfast in the garden
Location of the hotel is very natural, in the middle of a wine area. The hotel produces its own very delicious wine . Hotel is a good starting point to discover the surrounding. Regrettably, there was no opportunity to have lunch! Only if requested one day in advance. Staff explained, that a little restaurant is planned for the future...
