“Honeymoon stay at Hotel Birillo”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

We were only in La Spezia for 1 night as a stop over on our Italy vacation. My husband found Hotel Birillo and it was an amazing hotel. The staff is what really makes this hotel excellent! They were so friendly and accommodating throughout out stay and even explained up front that they were constantly improving and slowly renovating. They made excellent recommendations and were very knowledgable with advice on transportation and travel tips. The rooms were clean and comfortable and very modern. We enjoyed a great breakfast the next day and once again the staff were extremely accommodating and allowed us to keep our luggage with them while we travelled for the day. We would definitely recommend staying here!

Thank you so much
It was so nice that we were one of your stop, during your Honeymoon
So sweet
We always try to do our best, and we're so happy that you appreciated all that
We redecorated the rooms with so much patience and happyness, and everyday we prepare the breakfast with care, but everything with a smile, and it's always wonderful to have a smile back :)

My husband and I stumbled upon Hotel Birillo and were very glad that we did. The staff were extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful and the room spotless and comfortable. The downside is there is no lift and the bathroom is very small but this is offset by the magnificent breakfast. We would thoroughly recommend it and would certainly stay there again.

Well, thank you
This explains everything
The fact that the problemof the lift and the small bathroom weren't big problems for you, this shows that our care for the breakfast, our relationships with our guests can overcome all the rest.
We are so happy about what you wrote, it's very important to know that it was, anyway, a very comfortable stay
Thank you!

We went to La Spazia last month, so we looked through booking.com finding a hotel with reasonable price. We found Hotel Birillo. So we booked it without any high expectation.

Once we arrived the hotel, we're welcomed by a friendly receptionist. The room is comfortable. Everything is working. The next morning we left our belongings at the hotel. The staff told us we can come collect it any time. They are very helpful. Overall, it is a very good stay. Will return there for sure.

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.
