My boyfriend and I visited grand hotel Bristol at the end of August. I can only say average/poor things about the hotel to be honest. The room: small, out of date, stained carpets. Mini bar fridge didn't work and got hot/overheated. Furthermore had a problem with the window, which meant the aircon didn't work. This was an issue for two... More

The room was comfortable and clean, but could perhaps do with modernising slightly, given the room price was quite high. The hotel had lovely views, and it was easy to get to the nearby towns. The breakfast was excellent quality, as was the dinner.

My husband and me were on a road trip around Italy and visited also Italian riviera. This hotel is more of a three star hotel than 4 in our view. The rooms, breakfast, pool, everything is very basic. For that reason the price for a room ranging from EUR 300 to 400 is too high considering also that everything has... More

It's a lovely building with an exquisite view. The staff are generally friendly and helpful and the rooms are a decent size. The pool area is also nice and has that same amazing view. All of that is what I would expect from a 4 star hotel. The things I didn't like: no shuttle bus into town (it's a 15-20... More

This hotel is pretty much what you would expect from a big, 4 star hotel. Everyone who looked after us was highly competent and the standards were all quite high. The pool area was a little crowded but not to such an extent that it bothered us. The views from the pool deck were impressive, looking over to Portofino. The... More

We spend a week at the Grand Bristol. Very nice hotel with a amazing view over the sea. Price level is high, especially restaurent and lunch and drinks at the pool side. At this Price level I expected free Wifi, not only in the lobby area and free parking. Try the restaurent at the top floor - it´s good. Close... More

Not easy to find this hotel using address given and using sat nav. Found it in the end. Worth the wait. Welcoming receptionist who took us up to our room. We had been upgraded to a suite which was lovely with 4 separate rooms! Stunning views from the 5th floor too. Room was newly decorated and felt clean and fresh.... More
