Absolutely beautiful, to die for...its where i went to relax and breathe after my news. Its perfect, and extremely well suited to fall back into oneself. I can wholly recommend it. A beautifu small coastal strip but a dead end..the road in and out a dream on a bike.

Portofino, in the low season is enchanting. However, hotels still charge hefty amounts for rooms, though they are empty. Sleeping in Portofino is therefore a sweet indulgence which comes at a cost. But worst than the cost is the total lack of interest of the hotels. We visited a couple before settling in eight hotel, which was the least worse... More

We have stayed at this hotel a number of times and I think it's fantastic value given other Portofino hotel prices. The staff can't do enough for you to make you welcome, the breakfast buffet is lovely and plentiful and the rooms very stylish with Bulgari toiletries. If you are a fan of Conde Nast Traveller then this hotel will... More

Excellent location of the hotel in Portofino. A modern boutique hotel, with very friendly staff. In a place such Portofino it is great to stay in a hotel which is in a walking distance from the sea and the restaurants. It's a unique place and the hotel is absolutely beautiful. We are very happy we stayed at Eight hotel and... More

when we arrived we really felt it was a great welcome. the front desk manager was kind and explained evrything. we boooked a suite. room was quite small for the price and the best view was from the bathroom more than from the bedroom. i won't say overpriced though since in portofino this word doesn't make sense. this could have...

From the time we entered the hotel until we left the service and experience we had was incredible. We were greeted with a very genuine and warm welcome. Asked to sit down and relax, had a glass of champagne and then we were escorted to your room. The facilities were very nice and quaint. The service was incredible. Our daughters... More

Let’s face it … the hotel is OK, the service is good, and management tries to make it as fancy as possible … but none of it justifies 540 EUR for a small standard room (rate in August 2014). The 540 EUR are for the privilege of being right in Portofino, instead of somewhere nearby. Pluses: + Location, right in... More

We spend three days and two nights at this little perfect boutique hotel. Although the weather wasn't very good the first day, we find everything charming. The staff was helpful, the room was one of the most beautiful we've ever been. We had dinner at the "eight restorant" at Paraggi. Excellent! So romantic place! We will be back next year!!!!... More

Amazed by the glowing reviews here. The rooms are nice but super small, there is no pool and the very grungy garden is overrun by Mosquitos. The price is ridiculous and it's not even on the port (yes, everything in Portofino is ridiculously priced which amazes me because they really isn't anything there to see or do!) You can walk...
