We recently stayed two nights at the Royal Sporting Hotel during a small group tour of the Italian Riviera. The location of the hotel was ideal! We had a spacious, quiet room with a nice shower and large balcony facing the water. The hotel staff was very accommodating. From the hotel, it was a lovely 10-minute walk along the waterfront...

We stayed here on a late season walking holiday stop. Marketed as a 4* hotel, we were looking forward to the experience. Sadly it disappointed. Why? Because it is not what it purports to be. Yes, it has a (sea water) swimming pool and nice terrace, yes the staff in the restaurant try their best to give good service but,... More

For sure one of the best in town, but offer is not so wide, mainly offering residence style accommodations. At our arrival receptionist was efficient but not kind at all. The bar has a good sea view bur is downgraded by using plastic tables and chairs and really few options for snacks. Breakfast is good, room big, but lacking a... More

This hotel is about a 10 minute walk into town. My first thought is that this is not a 4 star hotel but more a 3 star in looks and feel. We had 3 people in our room which was small but it was fine for the two days that we stayed. If you would like WIFI you have to... More

A very good hotel and a great value. The best part is the restaurant. We had the very best mussel stew of all the places we tried it in our 8 days central and southern Italy. They are right from the bay in front of the hotel. The free breakfast is excellent. Wifi was good in our room. The view... More

Your stay at the Royal Sporting Hotel will definitely depend on your room. The hotel looks like an older hotel at reception. Our family (with a child) were in a room that had a separate area with a balcony and the view was beautiful. We were in a room with three beds crowded into the room (asked to have one... More

This hotel is beautifully located at walking distance from to the historical centre of Portovenere. View of the Palmaria Island and the gulf of La Spezia is stunning. The pool area is great. Very close to several beaches, and walking distance to all restaurants in the village. Also, boat trips to Cinque Terre, La Spezia, and Lerici can be boarded... More
