We traveled in a group of 3 so booked a room with an extra bed. We were glad to see that the extra bed was actually an extra bedroom, but the bed was so hard it was not usable. We pulled an outdoor chair inside and made a bed with sofa cushions. The shower was not workable. Their response to... More

We stayed at the Royal Sporting Hotel for three nights in October. It was a bit past the tourist season so things in Portovenere were comparitively quiet. The hotel is located about a 15 minute walk from the center of town and many of the rooms have a beautiful view of the water and the island across the channel. The... More

The hotel is a short walk to the main town with restaurants right on the water. Hotel has a nice swimming pool and breakfast is served overlooking pool and water. Need to take a bus or cab from la spezia station.

Hotel was nicely located, spend 2 nights there, distances for activities were good. Views were great from the balcony & terrace. Breakfast was good, fresh fruits available, also allergies were taken into account for specific persons. Also dined at the restaurant, local pasta, fish and meat dishes were tasty. Wine prices at the restaurant were a bit high, but there... More

Our family of 4 stayed here for 5 nights. The views are second to none. Breakfast on the terrace each morning was wonderful. Staff could have been more helpful and rooms could use a little up date. Overall a good experience.

Extremely well located but do not get fooled by Italian hotels stars. This one would deserve 3 if not 2 stars. Old fashioned up to the design, awful music of poor quality on the pool, very average breakfast. They vacuum noisily the corridors early in the morning and wake you up (maybe to be able to clean your room sooner).... More

Wonderful room overlooking pool and sea. Great food in restaurant . Superb base nearby for boats to Cinque Terra. Lots of places to visit by boat and sheer heaven to return to lovely hotel sit by pool and relax with beautifully served drinks. Splendid for short break.

As a North American tourist, I found the price of 250 Euros asked for a small room with a very nice view to be pretty steep especially for a hotel with little service. Very slow internet ( 10 Euros per day) , average breakfast, 20 Euros parking and very little concierge service. There would be nothing wrong with the place... More

I stayed at the Royal Sporting Hotel on March 27, and 28, 2013 while visiting the Cinque Terre by train. What a welcoming treat at the end of wonderful ten day spring break holiday to France and Italy. The hotel is located across a very small street from the bay. Our room had french doors that opened on to a... More

The staff/employees/owners at Royal Sporting Hotel are absolutely the best! My daughter stayed at this hotel and left my very sentimental and expensive ring in her room. She was already on her way to her next destination before she realized it. But no worries! The amazing and honest staff had already found the ring! They graciously helped me arrange shipping... More
