Definitely recommend!! Room & bathroom were very clean. The staff was helpful. Breakfast was nice. Private beach is a plus! Less than 10 minute walk to the center of Portofino. Parking is available, but hotel parks the car for you in the center of town. It takes about 10 mins to retrieve.

This hotel has to have one of the world's most gorgeous settings! The bar on the beach is charming and it took all of 5minutes to walk into the centre of Portofino! I have to go back one day!

We traveled with our two daughters and it was nice to have the two story suite separated by spiral staircase. The room was recently renovated, clean and modern. The views from the upper and lower patios are amazing and the location can't be beat. The staff are helpful without being overly friendly. They provided no information upon arrival. And they...

This hotel was turned out to be quite lovely. We stayed here three nights (my husband, I and our 5-year old daughter) Our room was very well appointed and quite comfortable with a beautiful view of the sea. We did end up on the 1st floor of the hotel (only 1 level up) and if possible, I'd request a higher...

After paying a very high price for a great location, we found many of the staff disinterested and uncaring. When we checked in I queried the bath room and was told they were all the same. When I discussed the toilet with another member of staff later in the day, we were offered a room change for the next day....

This hotel was just lovely. Our room had a beautiful view of the sea and was very comfortable. It was so fun to have a nice five minute walk to town for lunch, dinner, etc. The private beach for the hotel is SO cute! The beach has bountiful amounts of soft, rounded sea glass that for someone who loves to...

We spent 2 nights at this picturesque hotel booked by our travel agent. We arrived and were shown to our room which was about the size of a linen cupboard. It had no view which the website promised and was so small that you could not really even turn around in the galley-like bathroom. I was very disappointed and rang...

We had one night here on our way to Florence. It has a fantastic location, but we unfortunately were given 2 back rooms with no view. It wasn't cheap, so the rooms with a view I subsequently found out you pay a significant amount for. As another reviewer mentioned the check-in process was efficient, but certainly not friendly and they...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Piccolo Portofino is located in a privileged position, set on the slopes that characterize this exclusive stretch of the Ligurian coast overlooking the Gulf of Tigullio. During the sixties this location became very famous thanks to the protagonists of the star system, the nobles and aristocrats began to populate this fascinating locality to enjoy its exclusive parties and its fantastic scenery. The town of Portofino has remained unchanged all over the times, beautiful to live and to see as well. Hotel Piccolo Portofino, surrounded by the typical luxuriant vegetation of the Liguria Riviera, among the crystal clear water of Portofino and the blue sky, is a piece of art of the reception, unique of its kind. A hidden jewel, that has to be searched end discovered. Obtained from a refined period villa, today it is a boutique hotel, and from its generous terraces a breathtaking view onto this exclusive stretch of coast can be enjoyed. Inside, the contemporary design plays on strong contrasts, with combinations of marbles in white and black, and red velvets, crystals and soft fabrics. The set offers sensations of a refined, exclusive equilibrium and a romantic intimacy. Feelings that find their highest expression in the only 23 rooms of the hotel. Here, among all the comforts suited to the modern traveler, the contrasts are reduced, giving way to the softness of pastel tones, the whiteness of beds and enveloping pillows, to the transparency of the curtains behind which the gaze is lost onto the renowned beauty of this location to emphasize the stunning surrounding landscape A superb touch of exclusivity is added since this year to the range of services which Hotel Portofino is proud to dedicate to its guests. Just five minutes from the Hotel there is the legendary Piazzetta of Portofino, for a walk, a coffee or for a moment of pure relax . Or for shopping in the renowned brand stores ... more   less
