Liked: Facilities and availability is good. Information binder is extremely helpful for travelers staying at B&B Elicrim. We were fortunate enough to attend a local festival the day the Italians beat the Brits in the quarterfinals (Euro 2012) and the atmosphere was through the roof.

Disliked: If you're staying at Elicrim intending to go to Cinque Terre you're a bit restricted by the time limit of the trains.

Liked: The atmosphere was lovely.

Disliked: The directions to get there were not good at all. We had to ask people in the neighbourhood and it was obvious this was a regular occurance. The B & B is not actually in La Specia but you understand where you are that isn't a problem.

Liked: the mother of the owner was very nice and helpful. room was a little dated but really comfortable. nice touch of tv and dvds for some home comforts.

Disliked: not close to the centre of la spezia at all. not even in la spezia! yes there are connections to santo stefano magria where the hostel is but the last one is about 8.30 so u cant really have an evening out or even consider a few drinks. there is nowhere really in that area either to eat or drink. there was supposed to be a minibar but nothing in it- no details were left about wifi. we were told to contact if we needed anything. we phoned and texted but nothing. so much for 'can be contacted 24hours a day.' also, supposed to be a b&b- breakfast was pretty dire.

Liked: Near the train station S. Stefano di Magra and a shopping center with large Grocery. Easy walk from station to property. Individual rooms with key for safe storage. Room was cleaned daily with nobody harassing to leave at anytime. Arrived late into town and was able to arrange a pickup for nearly half as cheap with the owners.

Disliked: Not near La Spezia at all. 20km away near nothing interesting. Regional train service ends from La Spezia Centrale to S. Stefano do Magra fairly early so need to arrive early and take up a half day just traveling.

23 August 2011

Liked: Parents spoke no English but were helpful. Room was tidy.

Disliked: Not straightforward to find. GPS settings didn't work. Entry to property very scrappy, like an unfinished building site, but rooms are OK. 4 rooms sharing just 1 bathroom with only limited hot water supply. Shower head would not attach to the wall as it was broken. The owner said they had to wait for the plumber in a week, but a simple repair could have taped it to the wall fitting. Packaged breakfast very basic. Did not advertise WIFI but there was WIFI, however the connection was frustratingly slow and then stopped altogether. When I pointed out common concerns in the visitors book the owner said she does not read the book !

Liked: Basic but clean. With very helpful owner.

Disliked: Location :/ If you are without the car you have to rely on public transport to La Spezia. Which can be tricky. Last train back to hostel is around 9pm so if you plan late dinner you will have to go back by taxi (30-35 Euros)

Liked: The nice man that brought us a bottle of wine :)

Disliked: Our room type was not what we booked. Breakfast was just a juice box and a packet crossaint left on a table & was not replaced so we only got this one morning of our stay. Location was no where. Near La Spezia.

Liked: Elisa was amazing - she is so helpful and will go out of her way to make sure you are OK. It is out the way - if you are sick of Pizza there is not much other options to eat! There is a fridge but that is it. Room was nice and bathroom is clean. The cinque terre is amazing. Well, well worth the visit.

Liked: Nice room.Nice outdoor area.Nice host.

Disliked: Not at La Spezia. It is in an inland industrial town no where near the 5 fishing villages of Cirque Terre. We were one of three families staying there that were puzzled by its location. All thought they had booked at La Spezia (the one on the Italian Riveria). The owners of the same address in La Spezia are tired of guests banging on their door.

Liked: Elisa was very helpful. The bed was comfortable and the room very clean. The hostel is suitable for young people/backpackers etc who would be happy with it. Unfortunately the description also made it sound suitable for mature aged people such as ourselves.Different wording of the advertisment would help clarify this.
