While my husband and I were in Tuscany, we decided to spontaneously drive up towards the Cinque Terre region. Since we had both been to Cinque Terre, we opted for Portovenere instead and are very happy we did. It was a Friday afternoon and we decided to see if the Grand Hotel Portovenere had any rooms. We knew it could... More

Fabulous location - the terrace as you can see from the pictures overlooks the bay and it is beautiful. We only intended to have drinks but because the location was so good and the service great, we stayed for dinner. There's nothing in the menu that I'd particularly draw attention to, but the location, service and setting were great and... More

We spent 3 days at the Grand Hotel in late June with the kids. The hotel location is ideal as it is close the the beach as well as to the main plaza. The parking is quite an experience but once through this, the staff is nice and professional. The rooms and service are OK and nothing luxurious. We had... More

When we visited the Grand 9 years ago it was hardly grand. It was tired but with a killer view! Our return last week was to a newly renovated and designed hotel with wonderful amenities, a very welcoming staff, well appointed bathrooms, and a very good terrace restaurant with a Killer view! Good to know that somethings never change. Everything... More

Getting into Portovenere on a Sunday is interesting and the one attraction about this place is the carpark (once you find it!). The traffic system is one way and the parking is just before you round the bend to the hotel in a private underground parking place, which is not obvious from the road. Signage is obscure. So either go... More

My daughter and I had a 3 night stay here as we were visiting the Cinque Terre . The location of the hotel is fantastic. We had a beautiful room looking over the harbour and the gorgeous town of Portovenere. We had a few problems with the sliding glass doors not locking onto the balcony but that was soon fixed....

We landed in Rome after a 8 hour flight and drove straight to Portovenere in approx 4.5 hour. What a wonderful place to arrive. Charming, inviting, perfectly situated. The staff was welcoming and very friendly. Our room was perfect in size, simple and tasteful decor, great linens and lovely bath and shower products. Being somewhat jet lagged we had drinks... More

We really liked this place. The view from the restaurant over the harbour is stunning. The breakfast has so much to choose from, with the added bonus that you can even make your own juice. The staff are charming and helpful and our room was spotless. The food in the restaurant was of a very high standard, with a strong... More

We decided at the spur of the moment to divert to Portovenere and stayed in a corner room at the Grand Hotel Portovenere. What a wonderful discovery! Everything was simply perfect, great room, great hotel, great service, fluent in English and they arranged parking for our rental car next to the hotel which is a huge plus. The hotel has... More
