Well located and out of the bustle of the cinque terra. Sea view room was beautiful, many restaurants close by, taxi service offered by hotel to and from La Speza train station. Generous and tasty breakfast, friendly and helpful staff.

Perfect location, best view in town, clean, quiet and comfortable. Staff is very helpful. Family owned and managed. Stefano is a delight. Luigi in the top notch dining room is just the best. Food is great. Located a very short walk from the Piazza and the two important churches of Portovenere. We love this place, my grist time here but... More

Our room (242) had the most sublime view across the Gulf of Poets and I think the hotel website does not do itself justice in this respect (this 2nd floor has the best, unrestricted views). It is a great location just 5 minutes from the main part of Portovenere Harbour. Breakfast were very well organized and food replenished in timely... More

I like the location of this hotel - close enough to the central part of Porto Venere to be an easy stroll along the waterfront ... but far enough away to be away from 'the madding crowd' when you want to have a little quiet time. The rooms are adequate - comfortable and clean (although not very big) with a... More

After a week of traveling CT we stayed here to be close to station for next morning's exit to home. Our room was clean with an oversized bathroom. The shower door was not sealed and left one with a wading pool on the floor. Used up most towels to mop up and reported the issue next morning. Hopefully it's been... More

Very comfortable bed. Nice room (white walls, green furniture). Nice size bedroom, but small bathroom (nice toiletries and Grohe shower). Nice sea view. Good location, close to the bus stop (to travel to La Spezia) and to the centre of town (5 minutes' walk). Quiet hotel when everyone has gone to bed, but avoid rooms on 1st floor (we were... More

I was disappointed by the room - it looked tired, small and too basic. Bathroom the same and very small. Our room was almost below street level. Breakfast disappointing and boring with filter coffee tasting very stewed. Had dinner there one night and no atmosphere and very uninteresting menu. Really pleased only there 2 nights. Portovenere nice town and some... More

We stayed in a Double Seaview Room at the Hotel Paradiso in Portovenere. The hotel is sandwiched between the two main roads into and out of town (each one-way). Its primary entrance is on Via Garibaldi, but its “backdoor” opens onto the other road, Via dell’Olivo, and the walking promenade along the marina and into town. Portovenere is a picturesque... More

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
