Really glad we found this place — would not stay anywhere else if we come back to Portovenere. No where else has this quintessential view of Portovenere. We loved sipping our limoncello on the balcony as the sun set, boats moored, and people mulled around quietly below us. Our corner-deluxe room had a lovely cross-breeze that really cooled the room...

Stayed here for three nights in the middle of september and what a lovely stay it was. We where given a room on the fifth floor with a fantastic balcony overlooking the city of Portovenere. The hotel has newly been refurbished and looks very nice indeed. We had breakfast at the restaurant terrace each morning with great selection of scrambled... More

Porto Venere is one of the most beautiful places I have visited. The hotel is right in the centre so provides easy access to bars, shops and restaurants. Ask for a sea view overlooking the harbour. We stayed in room 36 which did not have a balcony but had double doors looking over the harbour. I found the rooms spacious... More

We stayed here 3 nights for visiting the beautiful villages of Cinque Terre. After a long hassle of finding a hotel or appartment in one of the Cinque Terre villages, we decided to go for this hotel in Porto Venere and we are so happy that we decided this! What a great stay we had in this beautiful new hotel.... More

The Grand Hotel is right at the little harbor of Portovenere and next to the old town. Newly opened the Hotel offers contemporary features in a historic building. We had a corner room with stunning views of the sea and the town. The bathroom was not huge but still fitted a large shower. The room had limited storage room but... More

This hotel is breathtaking! We walked in and were immediately impressed. The rooms with the water view are beautiful and the view cannot be beat. The staff was very charming and helpful, especially Megan, and were able to answer any question we had about the area. I would highly recommend this stay to anyone visiting the Cinque Terre as it...

I have stayed in a number of the hotels in the Portovenere area and the Grand Hotel is by far the best. The rooms are modern and clean, the location of the hotel is superb, but what sets it apart is the service - the receptionist, the bar staff and the restaurant staff were all excellent - could not have...

All Rooms with ocean view are simply perfect. I have been twice in this hotel (J suite -206/with balcony on the small seaport and std room -406-) just renovated. Also the cuisine and bar is perfect. This the kind of place you have to stay in Portovenere. Top!!

Have just returned from a week's stay at the Grand Hotel Portovenere and can't rate it highly enough!! Chose the hotel based on the location to Cinque Terre and all round good reviews. On arrival we were told we'd been upgraded to an Exec room with sea views and then treated with a bottle of bubbles later on that day.... More
