We fell in love with this hotel! What an amazing little bit of heaven! We stayed in the off-season and may have been the only ones in the hotel (breakfast room only had ONE table set each morning and we were at it!) but the service was outstanding, the breakfast fresh and prolific, and the views were incomparable. We stayed... More

Wow! This place was fantastic! I can't wait to go back. The motel staff were so happy and helpful at all times. Rooms very comfortable. Great retaurarants very close by. It's only downfall was our initial arrival, which was late at night, required a €35 taxi trip. Otherwise it is easy to catch a bus into La Spezia?

Why stay in Cinque Terre when you can stay at the Paradiso in Portovenere. The place was such a find. We were disappointed we couldn't find a place in Cinque Terre so ended up in Portovenere. A quiet town with good food, nice shops, sweet cafes and a ferry that will take you to where you can join the mobs... More

We spent 2 nights here, but wished we could have spent a week! The hotel has a beautiful setting on the waterfront with stunning views and it was very relaxing to lie in bed with the French doors open and watch the activity in the harbour. The hotel was close to everything - the boats to the Cinque Terre were... More

This hotel is in a wonderful location - a little removed from the centre with marvellous views of the marina. We had a spacious, spotless and comfortable room though the decor is a little dated. We ate in the hotel's restaurant twice and were treated to the attention of our waiter, Luigi, who very capably looked after all the diners... More

Because we were driving, we elected to stay in Porto Venere instead of the Cinque Terre, and that was a great decision. Porto Venere itself is a beautiful town, without the huge tourist crush of the Cinque Terre and with a great selection of restaurants. Paradiso is located an easy 10 minute walk from the center of old Porto Venere,... More

This is an excellent base for exploring Portovenere or the Cinque Terre region. It was the nicest hotel we stayed in, in our visit to the area. Our room just had a bit of a glance of the waterfront out the window, but the dining terrace has a beautiful view that turns spectacular at sunset. The rooms are roomy and... More

we travel alot in Italy and found this one very pleasant. The towels were 5 star quality, the dinner included in our half pension was very good and well presented and served in a dining terrace overlooking a marina edged with umbrella pines. Not too close to the noise of the center which is very active with locals all living... More

Because we could not get a hotel in the Cinque Terra town we stayed in Porto Venere and commuted. We were at Hotel Paradiso 4 nights, we really enjoyed our stay and ended up liking Porto Venere more than the Cinque Terre towns. The hotel is clean, the staff is very friendly and speaks english, the breakfast is good and... More

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of my Country Walkers tour of the Cinque Terre - this hotel was a nice finale to our trip. I would recommend it as a nice base to tour the area. My room was very spacious for a single and could easily have accommodated two people. It came with slippers and nice toiletries.... More
