Convenient locate
Hotel is in great condition, walking distance from/to the train station/ restaurants/ferry. It seems safe but I saw during day/night time homeless people around the hotel even opening garbage containers putting all garbage outside in the middle of the street. If I was alone, I won’t walk after dark. The hotel inside is great maintained with minimalist style.

We had a wonderful stay at the poet hotel. The place was clean, comfortable, and the staff was helpful. Our first day and night were lovely but our last day during checkout the staff changed and the new crew was not as nice or helpful. On the website and booking it said breakfast was included but the staff the last day decided to charge us for it and did not even try to accommodate even thought the website said free and we did not pay the day before. Overall great but depends on the staff I guess!

We were happy with its location close to the train station . They had parking a few blocks away which was secure . The room and breakfast were good . As usual we would prefer nicer pillows then most hotels offer

Not far from the La Spezia central train station. Convenient to the shopping and restaurant area. Very nice and helpful staff. Modern and clean hotel. Great breakfast. Huge modern bathroom. Room size is similar to most European hotels, if not a bit larger.

The Poet hotel was clean, convenient, with pleasant hosts. The rooms are very small and quite simple - but to be honest you only sleep there so that is ok!
