A beautiful boutique hotel just a bit away from the heart of Portofino (5-7 min walk from the pier). Lovely interiors, welcoming and warm service and was impressed with the Frette bedsheets + Bvlgari bathroom amenities! Breakfast was lovely and beautifully laid out too. Highly recommend!

I like it real and local. I felt like I was staying in a Villa, not a touristy hotel. The staff was amazing and the attention to detail was 5 star! Quiet at night, wonderful beds, and simple a great find. I will be back! Very happy traveler and well rested. Perfect in Portofino...8 is a 10.

We had a great stay at this boutique hotel, and Greta at the front desk was especially helpful in making our stay as smooth and comfortable as possible. We were glad we stayed here rather than Splendido as it is very close to the town and well integrated into the surroundings. Most of the clientele was European - including Italians.... More

Eight Hotel was fantastic! We arrived at 11:30 pm and were met with a glass of champagne and a very friendly receptionist and bell man. That set the tone for the weekend and I couldn't have been happier with the hotel. The hotel staff were incredibly nice, accommodating and helpful. While the rooms are not huge they are very comfortable,... More

Excelent. Staff us great helping plenty Witherspoon reservations and suggestions. Nico room and only a short distancie to the pier. Portofino si really beatiful, but small. You may consider gong there just for the day.

Very friendly service and great atmosphere/decor, great staff at the reception. Portofino will never be cheap, but the location and the availability of a garage made this a great choice for a weekend.

The eight hotel is a beautiful boutique hotel. General mgr and staff were very nice. Very informative of where we should eat and go sightseeing Nice clean spacious room. Location is the best close to everything in Portifino. One of our favorite spots on our vacation. We will definitely return.

I booked this hotel for a week, for my now husband and I in July 2010 for his birthday. It was a last minute trip and was really one of the few hotels available when I booked in May for our July stay. The hotel is quite a trip from Genoa airport, about 45 minutes to an hour, but the... More

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
