My Wife and I (29 and and 32 years old at the time respectively) stayed here last summer. The new owners had just taken over and were in the process of renovating the place. We received one of the newly renovated (very clean) rooms and were told beforehand that the washroom was small. They had tried to alter the washrooms... More

I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights with some friends.Upon arriving in my room I thought my review was going to be a bad one. Soo many things I could criticize but the generosity and friendliness of Sara and her husband (forgot his name) put all the little defects into the background. I had a single occupancy double room...

Let me begin by saying that I may not have been careful enough in booking this hotel. We generally stay in a slightly better quality, so maybe I fell for the cheaper price and didn't realize I was heading downmarket from where we usually stay. I also fell like the owners/management are trying so hard and are so lovely, that... More

In the middle of La Spezia and easy to access the train station for Cinque Terre. Market is a couple of blocks away and so is the center of town with shopping and eateries. Great breakfast at hotel with lots of home made goodies. Coffee made on request. Very friendly and helpful staff! Comfortable room. Quaint bathroom.

The hotel was recently renovated, the room looked very nice and clean. The bathroom is small but the room is quite spacious. The location is great, it's near the train station, close to the market and the city center. The breakfast was very good! The service was excellent, they were friendly and helpful. I recommend staying here!

Thank you very much ^_^ It was so nice to read your words for us. It's true, bathrooms are a bit small here, we can not do much about spaces, since we're not owners here. But we're trying everyday to make everything more comfortable and to renovate where we can. Unfortunately we can not show how everything was before, so... More

Albergo Barillo is perfectly located halfway between the train station and the port for easy access to the Cinque Terre and very close to the markets for fresh produce daily.

Great little spot. Recently renovated rooms, friendly staff and a to-die-for breakfast with freshly made homemade products. Convenient location close to the city market. The neighborhood is lively but not overly so. Highly recommended.

The Hotel was overall really nice. The People working there did a great job of making you feel welcomed. Breakfast was homemade and really good. The building is located in the City Center, and you can walk everywhere. I recommend it.

I had read other reviews stating how friendly the receptionist Sarah was and they are all true! Super welcoming with a friendly smile. She showed us several rooms and we chose one with a larger, recently remodeled bathroom. Her colleague the next morning, Domenico was equally hospitable. The included breakfast was one of the best hotel breakfasts we've had in... More
