Sara is very helpful and friendly. Homemade pastries make the breakfast is very special. Close to train station makes it very convenient for visit of cinque terre. A very good price/quality ratio for the cinque terre parc.

Yes, I think the breakfast is very special because you can feel our soul in it Every single thing is carefully prepared, and fresh everyday. Some people told us they can feel love inside every piece of cake, and that's what we put in everything we do : passion, love, care and joy! More

The hotel itself is quite old,but is very reasonably priced,clean,quiet and has well appointed rooms. La Spezia is a great location for exploring Cinque Terre and the MUST SEE Porto Venere. Birillo is in a great location in the centre of town and no more than 15 minutes walk to the station and the Port,where all ferries leave from.The breakfast... More

This very friendly and welcoming hotel is an ideal place to stay if visiting La Cinqu Terra. About 5 minutes from the city centre and 11 minutes from the train station, Sarah and Dominca were a mind of information and helpfulness. Car parking might be an issue but we were lucky to get free parking about 4 to 6 minutes... More

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Birillo while visiting the Cinque Terre coast, since the location of the hotel is near to the ferries and trains that take you each of the villages. The hotel is definitely a bargain, meaning you get good value for what you are paying. Our room had good AC, a comfortable bed, was clean,... More

We arrived with no booking and Sara was incredibly welcoming. We had a very comfortable room with pleasant decor. Our hosts were fairly new to the business and deserve to be well supported. The hotel had a good coffee machine and they served cold beer, which we enjoyed in the small patio area. Sara had an amazing smile from morning... More

Very good location for train and boat to cinque terre. Very friendly staff. Speak good English. Free parking around the corner. Sweet breakfast and clean just renovated rooms. Small bathroom but nice hot shower. Highly recommended if you don't want to stay in one of the 5 cinque terre places.

I have been travelling for four and a half months through Europe so far and have not found better accommodation that has such excellent service nor value for money.

The Birillo Hotel is located in town, not far from either the train station or the marina where one can catch the train to Cinque Terre and/or catch the boat to one of the five towns. It was kind of hard to find at first but that was due to incorrect information from the GPS we purchased. La Spezia is... More

The service is outstanding - Sarah is very friendly and helpful (she always had a free spot for our car out front). The breakfast was the best that we had through a month in Europe - fresh ingredients over a variety of foods. The location is very good, located near to the town centre and wharf.

Hotel Birillo was very central and easy to find. We stayed there five nights. The recently renovated room was charming and comfortable.The breakfast was plentiful and nicely presented.The best thing of all was the warmth and friendliness of the staff.They were always available for help and advice.It felt as if we were staying with friends. We were sorry to leave.
