Very friendly and helpful young owners who were delightful to talk with. They even waited for us when our train was delayed. Finding it was a bit of an adventure though since google maps had it all wrong. (This trip I learned to be careful about depending on technology. Asking directions is still the best! The people of La Spezia were very nice to help.) LaBranda guest house was very nice. Would love to stay there again some day!

We had a wonderful room. We would definitely return there. Our room had a balcony where we sat at night and enjoyed watching the life in the street. The B&B is directly across the street from the main train station. VERY CONVENIENT! The owner/operator was great. But, we did have to call her to have her meet us there - bring your phone, or learn to use the Italian phone system.

I had a great stay at La Branda. Guilia was very warm and welcoming and explained everything very clearly. The room was clean and comfortable and the shower was fabulous. The location is excellent for train travellers - only 50m from the station and with a lift. Breakfast is by ticket at one of 2 local cafes. The only small negative was that whenever there was a conversation in the corridor I could clearly hear every word in my room, otherwise it was quiet.

I stayed here for one night whilst traveling through Italy by myself. The owner, Giulia is very friendly and helpful and made me feel very welcome, giving me a map and tips on where to go in La Spezia. She also left sweets in the room, which was a nice touch! The room was a decent size and was very quiet, despite being just across the road from the station. For breakfast, you get a token to take to one on 2 cafes in the town, one of which is 2 doors down from the apartment, and you get a coffee and a croissant. This is a very homely and comfortable place and I would certainly stay here again.

Giulia and her family are the warmest, most hospitable hosts a traveler could possibly hope for. When we arrived, intending to visit the Cinque Terre for two days, she promptly called the boat for us and hurried us down to the docks before the evening departure. We were crestfallen to discover that they accepted only cash --- until Giulia's father stepped up out of nowhere, introduced himself, and paid for the boat! Naturally we paid him back the following morning, but what service! This clean, cute family-run hotel is right opposite the train station and the perfect base from which to explore this exquisite part of Italy. Don't miss the boat to Portofino!

This is a little hotel on one floor of a larger building. It's run by a young Italian woman, Giulia, who is friendly and charming. Her dad also works there and is likewise friendly and charming. I would certainly stay there again if I were to revisit the Cinque Terre, as it is right behind the train station (which is not noisy, and feels very safe).

Pls do make check-in appointment with Inn La Branda before you go as we missed the check-in time after 12.30 noon and no one was there at 2pm. The host is a very nice and helpful lady and she explained all the information we want in details.

This was a basic establishment. It's main attraction was its close proximity to the railway. Would suggest that a cup/ saucer be provided for tea/ coffee as drinking out of a plastic cup wasn't pleasant. Perhaps milk could be made available. Coffee/ brioche for breakfast would not be considered adequate and having to go off site to obtain was a nuisance.I would consider that this place was more in the class of back- packer accommodation. Rooms were not conducive to sit about and read. A general lounge area should be made available for guests. Free WIFI access was efficient. With the train across the street it was ideal for trips to CInque Terre which is a must to see. Thankfully the Tourist Information Center (at station)was available for all travel and general information as hosts did not reside on the premises so difficult to ascertain ideas. Restaurant suggestions were very good. La Spezie is a delightful city and very safe to walk about at all hours of day/ night.

Great location right across the road from the train station makes it convenient for getting to the Cinque Terre & Florence. A nice walk into town. Only a couple of rooms but serves the purpose.

The price was reasonable. It is near the La Spezia Central station, only 5 minutes walk. But if you have a big luggage you have to move it down a long stairs. All the information for travel to clinqe terre was available in the apartment, with ferry and train timetable and also the recent local events leaflet.
