“Family atmoshpere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

I went and visited la Spezia with some very good friends and this hotel was amazing. The breakfast was soooo amazing and fresh. All the baked things were made by the hostess.The rooms were spotless ours didn't feel like every other hotel room, fancy yet impersonal.It had character and it felt like home.Amazing experience, I'll go back just for the breakfast!

My daughter and I like to hike Cinque Terre. Looking for an inviting hotel away from the tourist areas, my daughter found Hotel Brillo in La Spezia, a short train ride away. This is a wonderful, simple, warm, and friendly place to stay. The rooms are simple, neat, and spotlessly clean. The bathrooms are more cozy than small. The hotel staff are super warm and friendly. I looked forward to breakfast because most everything was home-made. Yogurt, bread, and pastries were outstanding.
As my daughter and I departed, we felt as though we had just left family.
Wonderful hospitality and memories. Thanks.

I have stayed at Hotel Birillo for several weeks every year now for the past 4 years and am planning on coming back in June. It is my home away from home. Sara is wonderful. The breakfasts superb. The facilities including free wifi, airconditioning excellent. The location so convenient to some of the most spectacular places to visit--all within a day's train ride once you have explored Cinque terra, Portovenere, and Lerici on the beautiful Gulf of Poets. The villages in the coastal mountains are unique and well serviced by buses from La Spezia. Pisa, the walled city of Lucca, Portofino, Parma all can be explored while basing yourself in La Spezia and you won't find better value than Hotel Birillo--or a warmer welcome.

Room Tip: some street traffic noise is unavoidable unless you ask for an inside room

I went for a one week trekking and decided to stay in La Spezia with my dad and boyfriend. We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Birillo. The hostess is absolutely amazing. She speaks at least three languages, makes almost all of the delicious breakfast treats herself and works around the clock to make sure the guests are comfortable. We all felt like this place was home for a week because of the excellent hospitality. Thank you so much Hotel Birillo! We hope to return soon!

Stayed here for one night when visiting Cinque terre. The location was nice, and rooms nothing more than OK. I know it's only two stars, but still the bathroom was terrible! Not enough room to even turn around in the shower. Water FREEZING cold. Also felt dirty. Very glad we stayed for just one night. The price was to high compared to the standard. If staying for onlye one night and not planning to use the shower, I guess you'll be OK. The city La spezia was really nice though!

I found the helpful, knowledgable clerk to speak excellent English. She offered excellent restaurant suggestions. The B & B breakfast was ample and varied. The room was clean and comfortable. A PC in the lobby was free to use for email and web. Unsecured wi-fi operated in some parts of the facility. I stayed for four nights and would happily stay there again if/when the opportunity arises.
