My son and I spent 2 nights in this little 'hidden gem'. The family ran hotel is nothing fancy, but offers comfortable and surprisingly very clean rooms. Throughout my travels I've found it very difficult to find adequately clean room in Europe, specially if traveling on a budget. This hotel was definitely not one. The room was very spacious, did...

Location very good. Helpful service from parking garage to hotel with bags. However, whilst the room was modern and clean, the rest of the hotel was tired and worn. Our telephone did not work and the bathroom door did not close. Don't bother with breakfast!

Fantastic location! Right in the heart of Portofino. Room basic but clean. Tea and coffee making facilities. Reception welcome and service excellent. Breakfast was basic, waiting staff didn't deliver on request for toast or croissant. Tip: should use the space facing the harbour for snacks and drinks for both residents and public. Hotel should also sell the restaurant more to...

Albergo Nazionale is in a perfect location and the rooms are large but dated. The breakfast was so-so but I would recommend it just based on room size and location. The front desk was helpful in recommending restaurants and a boat tour.

Everybody should know by now that this is not a modern, amenity packed hotel but it compensates in so many other ways . The location is just unbeatable if you really want to experience the Portofino ambience and vibe there is no better place to completely immerse yourself. The hotel is a matter of personal taste of course but I...

What a nice surprise this hotel was! The location is simply perfect, our room was overlooking the main piazza, the marina and the castle were right in front of us! The views are completely unobstructed. Simply great! The best restaurants are in your backyard! The suite was very spacious and clean. The price is just UNBEATABLE for the value! The...

I would stay here again, and I fully recommend this place. I thought my room was spotless, the hotel charming and the location great. The included breakfast wasn't amazing, but it was decent enough at no additional charge. There was some noise to deal with, likely because of all the hard surfaces. If housekeeping drops a broom, you're gonna hear...

We were 3 people for 2 rooms on 6/19/2015. The hotel is a short walk from the municipal parking lot. A pleasant member of the staff helped carry our bags from the covered parking lot to the hotel. Rooms were comfortable if Spartan. Nonetheless we did not get to Portofino to stay in a hotel room. The hotel is right...

Lunch and dinner can also be taken in any one of the many well-known restaurants encircling the piazza.Family management by the proprietors dates back to the early 1900's and their experience ensures an atmosphere of friendly and unpretentious hospitality. ... more   less
