This hotel was so idyllic it was hard to leave. Portovenere is slightly harder to access than the Cinque Terre villages because it isn't on the trainline and boats aren't always running from La Spezia, but the bus from La Spezia was cheap and relatively hassle free (the views from the bus window were also worth the winding coastal roads)!...

My partner and I stayed here for a romantic long weekend. Even though it was the very first weekend of the season, the hotel was was welcoming and professional. The accommodation was superb and the restaurant was faultless; we'd definitely come back!

Lovely hotel with a dreamy location. We had a sea-view room with marble bathroom and lots of storage space. We were traveling with a car and having access to the hotel's free garage was a great plus. Staff were great everywhere. We tried the restaurant for lunch and dinner and were very pleased with the quality and presentation of the... More

My wife and I stayed here in Sept. 2014, using this as our base for exploring Cinque Terre. The service here was superb. The front desk staff was extremely helpful in negotiating travel issues across Italy for us. The room was spectacular overlooking the picturesque town and harbor. The free Wi-Fi was appreciated. Although we might have paid less to... More

Prob no need for another review since all the reviews seems the same as mine, but I will write the review since the hotel was very nice. The staff were very kind and welcoming. Reservation confirmation email came within a day of booking from the hotel. The room we stayed was double classic room which was very neat and clean,... More

The renovated room, the in-room equipment and the whole atmosphere in the hotel helps to enjoy staying here. Hotel’s free Wi-Fi is highly appreciated. The view from the terrace is unforgettable. The place is very good as a base to explore Cinque Terre by boat or other means. We arrived by our car late at night, we secured the car... More

The location is absolutely perfect, just by the end of the bay, facing the entrance of the harbour. The view is stunning and by far, the best place to stay in the whole area. The proximity to the entrance of the castle and the fact it has a parking are a plus. Good breakfast facing the bay, and attentive staff.... More

Welcoming staff, great location, amazing views and an awsome Restaurant. We went to spend a couple of night for my birthday and asked for a good restaurant, after having breakfast at the hotel restaurant, I decided to celebrate my birthday there and it was a great choice. The rooms are also very nice!

Great place -- short walking distance to everything including the boats to the Cinque Terre, lovely rooms, good breakfast, beautiful views and a friendly and helpful staff. One of the really good things is that parking, which is hard to find in the area, was right next door. This was my 3rd visit to Portovenere and by far the best... More
