Good location. around five mins to walk to the beach. The bus stop was just opposite the hotel. The room was very cosy with classical style. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Good price in such an expensive area.

The owners are great and really helpful. Breakfast is good and the terrace is lovely. The rooms are fine although a little bit more soundproofing would be good and the bathrooms could do with updating. All in all, a fine and characterful place to stay right near the waterfront, town centre, bus and railway stations, and all for a good... More

My feeling about Rapallo is also consists of the time spent in Portofino hotel. Everything was amazing - fiendly and helpfull staff, ready to help you with any question you have, tasty breakfasts with fresh pastry, aroma coffee and meat plate, rooms in ancient building with incredibly high ceilings and cosy beds, cleaned every day. There is also elevator (the... More

We stayed 5 nights here having only planned to stay 3. It was such a great location, one block back from the waterfront, right in Rapallo. We wanted a rustic, older style hotel with character and that is exactly what we got. Lookout for neon sign and double door entrance to the building, there is a gold plaque outside with... More

This was the cheapest hotel I could find at the time of booking. It is lovely. The staff are friendly and whilst the accomodation is simple, it is scupulously clean. Rooms are cleaned daily, breakfast is served with excellent coffee and the location is perfect. The only thing that would have really improved my stay is air conditioning, or a... More

We booked two rooms at the Hotel Portofino and were more than pleasantly surprised at the standard. One room lead out onto a roof top terrace with table and chairs which we utilised for afternoon drinks. The beds were very comfortable and a lovely touch throughout the hotel was candles and magazines which gave it a homely feel. Admittedly the... More

Our room was adequate for 3 adults. The en suite bathroom left a lot to be desired. It was poorly lit & had a macerated toilet which was incredibly noisy. Having said this, the staff did their utmost to be helpful and friendly and it was in quite a good location. We were lucky to get disabled parking right outside... More
