This was a last minute booking and it was a good find. Parking is available in the underground garage (valet parking) which is well worth it given the limited parking locally. The views are beautiful. You can pay more for views from your bedroom, but we did not do so as we could enjoy the views just as much from... More

Grand Hotel Portovenere is in the location that is central and the views are splendid. The hotel is perched up prominently on the hill and visible from almost every corner of the Porto Venere town. It overlooks the Ligurian coast and the main square. The site used to be Franciscan Monastery. Surprisingly, the lobby is modern and the first impression... More

This hotel was formerly a convent. It has so much charm. They have completely upgraded the hotel and it is amazingly modern. We had a corner room with a stunning view. We went there to tour Cinque Terre, but after a day in the villages at Cinque Terre we decided to just stay in Portovenere. It just does not get... More
