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

5 star service in a 4 star hotel. Wonderful hotel, great service, excellent location, especially if visiting the Cinque Terre. Got the chance to meet the General Manager and understand why the service has so much quality. He has a tremendous luxury background in some of the most important 5 stars hotels in Europe. We will definitely return

Our stay at the Grand Hotel Portovenere (GHP) has been wonderful! Staying in a deluxe corner room high on the 5th floor, the views of Portovenere are most excellent. The staff are all very attentive, kind, and helpful, and for us English speaking travelers, our communication together was very good. Being a newly opened hotel (July 2014) there are still... More

The hotel had only been open for three weeks, hence many teething problems could be observed. So, to commence any review it must be stated that the hotel had been beautifully renovated AND all serving staff could not be faulted for their enthusiasm and friendliness in wishing to make the customer's stay a happy one. So, what are the problems.... More
