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... More

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... More

My friend and I spent one night 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, faced...

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... More

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... More

It seemed too good to be true when we booked a hotel right on this most picturesque of all Riviera harbors at a reasonable price with parking only a short stroll away. It was hard to expect a less than acceptable inn HERE, but until we actually checked in we were skeptical what to expect. It did not disappoint in... More

We have wanted to visit Portofino for many years, and have recently been and loved it. We stayed at Albergo Nazionale Hotel, Portofino which is located in the best position, smack bang in the middle of the square on the harbour. The hotel itself is what I believe to be typically Italian. It had lots of character, and was spotlessly... More

I was about to book Hotel Nazional and I decided to give a call for room availability. The person on the phone replied as if I was bothering him, rather than being happy of having a new customer. Would never recommend this place to a friend. Still expecting apologies, which I guess will never arrive..

this is my second visit to this wonderful hotel. Location is just incredible, staff attentive, room fabulous. I would also like to add that the hotel manager went over and above his duty. I left a precious and sentimental ring by mistake in the safe and only realised on my flight home. The manager was so helpful and genuinely caring... More

We booked this hotel because there were very limited options in Portofino du to the season and to the fact that, well, it´s Portofino. We stayed only one night, and the hotel is nothing to brag about, but you are basically right on the main square of Portofino. The rooms are very simple, with a main area on one level... More
