“Excellent Hotel”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

An excellent hotel with excellent and varied breakfast and most accommodating staff. The location is prime and the rooms are spotless (thanks Johnny) and though they are in the process of revamping the building somewhat, they will make sure you are satisfied and happy with your accommodation. A small hotel with a big heart! We would recommend this hotel very highly.

A great value hotel with wonderful host. We stayed here four nights and were very satisfied. The Manger, Sara, went the extra mile to make everything comfortable and pleasant. This is a value hotel, not/not a a place for you if you must have electronic door locks and nice curtains. The rooms are basic, large and clean and have automatic temperature control. Everything works but there are a minimum of 23 stairs to climb. The complementary breakfast is diversified and quite nice. Their restaurant recommendations they gave us were all good.

Hotel Birillo was the perfect overnight stop for us after visiting Cinque Terre. The rooms are small, but they were clean and apparently are upgrading so they will be even nicer soon. The staff was terrific, especially Sara whom went above and beyond to help us when we got a local parking ticket... Confusing in Italian!

We used this hotel and La Spezia for a brief visit to Cinque Terre and spent 2 nights here. The Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. However, for people with large suitcases, you should be aware that there is no elevator so you have to lug your suitcases up a flight of stairs to the room. The room was fairly spacious and clean. The bathroom can only be described as a quirky afterthought. It was long and very narrow and just adequate but clean. The included breakfast was very good. The location was very good about 2 or 3 blocks from the main walking street and about 10-15 minute walk to the train station which takes you to the Cinque Terre.

I would recommend this hotel for stays in this area but warn people that the bathroom takes a little getting used to.

Bathroom new. Located between RR and harbor. Bath towels thin like tea towels. Old but clean with a terrific staff remodeling under way. Lovely breakfast with fresh baked goods meats cheeses and fruits. Staff carried up my suitcase.

Hotel Birillo was the perfect spot for me while traveling to Cinque Terre. The breakfast was amazing, worth it to stay there just for that. The wifi worked better than most places I've stayed. The staff we're very nice and friendly. The room was small and old but clean and had everything I needed. Have already recommended this place to my friends.

The staff was very friendly and anxious to please. Room clean and comfortable although the bathroom was a bit small. No elevator but staff will help with luggage. Very good breakfast with treats we did not see in other hotels. Good location, about mid-way between train station and port so easy access to Cinque Terre. Also close to agreeable pedestrian streets.

Room Tip: We had a corner room, nice and bright.

Hello,
yes you're right the bathrooms are a little bit small, but actually we renovated a lot of bathrooms so they're more comfortable now.
And for the stairs no problem! we are strong enough to carry your bags upstairs ;)
Thank you for the breakfast, we're still trying to improove it day by day, and give you always something special.
Thank you
see you again maybe
