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

My family of 6 adults stayed at The Grand Hotel Portovenere for 5 nights from Sept. 25-Sept. 30 2014. What a great find on the Riviera coast! The staff was excellent with their service. Antonio, the GM, was most welcoming and greeted us each day and night in the lobby. The receptionists, particularly Megan, always greeted us with warm smiles... More

I rarely write reviews but feel this hotel is worth the effort. We just recently returned from a 10 year wedding anniversary week on the Italian Riviera. I chose this hotel based on other reviews and, for once, they were right! Our stay started with a pleasant surprise when we were presented by a delicious complementary bottle of champagne, on...

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
