This Hotel has a wonderful location: overlooking harbour and village - located on a hill above the sea. There is a well-kept garden area leading downwards to sea level without a street inbetween. If you have a room facing the sea it will be absolutely quiet. Into town you will walk about 10 minutes. Reception and all staff are friendly... More

Just stayed one night here as our room in Vernazza wasn't available for three nights. Beautiful town, nice to walk along the harbor in the evening. Very good breakfast included in room price. The grounds are beautiful and the private beach area looks great although we couldn't take advantage of it. Very easy to walk to and from the train... More

This hotel is right in town, on a small hill overlooking the Ligurian Sea. The view is outstanding. The extensive gardens are beautiful and manicured, with lots of walks and places to sit. It is the kind of hotel one goes just to visit cause it is so nice. Grand, genteel, but not stuffy. Now, in full disclosure, we did... More

We recently spent two days in S. Margherita Laguire. This hotel offered a view of the Laguire Sea that was simply gorgeous. The room had a spacious balcony that overlooked the sea. Be sure to book a room with a panoramic view. The staff was helpful and friendly. Be prepared for a short walk up a hill to get to... More

From their website, I expected the Hotel Continental to be a fairly nice, well-maintained hotel. Appearances can be deceiving. Check-in was quick and easy, despite us arriving rather late. The staff was friendly, and the first impression of the hotel was good. Our room was clean and spacious. We had a ground floor room towards the harbor, with a very... More

This hotel may not be the most expensive hotel I've stayed in but it is the staff, the welcoming atmosphere and the amazing views which make it one of the nicest hotels. We payed a little more for a sea view room and it was well worth it. When the man threw open the shutters in our room and we... More

Excellent hotel, very helpful staff. Beautiful ocean view from rooms. We had a room with a terrace, overlooking the port. Great value for the money. Buffet breakfast was very good. Convenient location, short walk to port for the ferry to porto fino, short walk to train station

Flew into Genoa and rented a car for a road trip mainly heading back towards France along the coastline and then up into the alps but we started off by wondering what all the fuss was about with a place called Portofino! Booked in not far down the road, in fact walking distance, to The Hotel Continental here and superb... More

Our family stayed 5 nights at the Hotel Continental in September. It was the highlight of our trip - the view from our room was spectacular. Every evening we met for cocktails on the patio or the lounge and were greeted graciously by the staff. The concierge always so helpful, the breakfast & dinner staff always so pleasant, the grounds... More
