We stayed here as a family of 6 in August. The location was perfect right on the harbour and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was simple but adequate and the hotel had a restaurant which provided good value for money food. The hotel staff were helpful and we enjoyed having breakfast with a particular staff member who was... More

Location is right at the harbor. We had one couple in Room 22 and one couple in Room 24, both were 2 floors above ground level. Each room had a sitting room with pull out couch and could have slept 4. Rooms had air-conditioner in the living room but not in the bedroom so we left the bedroom door open.... More

A little quirky - our room seemed to be somewhere in the 1980s. But we did ask for a seaview room - and thats worth it on its own. Clean and comfortable. Simple Breakfast served in the room which was nice and unusual nowadays. Portofino is not worth more than 24 hours really - the place is overrun by tourists... More

Stayed here for one Friday night in May. There are two hotels that front onto the square - this one and the one next door called the Splendido. Depends what you are looking for. Americans with lots of money should stay next door as the Nazionale is for travellers who want a real experience of Portofino. You will not get... More

Excellent hotel, very good stay. The staff meets with great efficiency and friendliness. Do not hesitate to book. The town is charming and worth the boat trips to San Frutuoso and Santa Marguerita. Forget Rapallo. The only criticism is the poor breakfast, very simple and small variety of items.

We were in Room 10 of the Nazionale. It is a large suite with a sitting area, mini-fridge, table for 4 and queen sized bed. The bathroom was pretty spacious with all the needs you could need in it's all tiled design. This Queen of Hotels is an old fashioned friend. All your needs are met well albeit in an... More

Albergo Nazionale is a great location. We had room 20, no views there except of the alley and somebodys laundry/rooftop. The room itself was large enough to spend a week or more (we were there 3 nights). Very expensive even off season, but most places in that area are pricey. Breakfast is nothing special - only yogurt, bread and coffee/juice.... More

Nazionale is a small, cosy and charming hotel perfectly located at the center of Portofino. The rooms are large enough for two persons and very clean. Our room was made twice a day, wich was quite impressive. Few rooms have view to the plaza and to the port but we were not so lucky to be in a such room.... More

This hotel is worth 4 stars and I will be staying here again. I will start with the cons and they are outweighed by the pros. Cons - overall hotel is a bit dated but not offensive. Sort of suits the area. Bathroom was cramped. Pros - the staff were brilliant. Excellent customer service which made the stay. Room 20... More
