“Perfect Portofino”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

The Piccolo is a great little hotel in a perfect location for visiting Portofino. On arrival we were told that we had been upgraded to a sea view room which set the tone for the rest of our stay. We spent the remainder of the afternoon relaxing on the private beach terrace which was situated just across the road from the hotel. Portofino itself is just beautiful with a vast selection of restaurants around the little harbour. It's a five minute walk from the hotel into Portofino itself and I would recommend going up to the second floor and leaving by the rear exit to get onto the pedestrian walkway into Portofino rather than taking your chances on the roadway which is extremely windy with no pavement!

Location is excellent with a private beach for hotel guests. They provide lounge chairs and towels on their terraced patios just above the beach. The food from the restaurant is superb and is a great option for lunch with an outdoor bar/cafe outside right above the beach. The staff is friendly, but you kind of have to coax them along. Always remember to say buongiorno and grazie and you will have great service! The short walk to Portofino center is so beautiful and Santa Margherita is a short bus ride away. I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the bay. It will be expensive, but worth it. Travelling in Portofino a...

It was real comfortable and lovely stay we had in Domina Home Piccolo Hotel. The location is great, just 8-10 min. walk from the city of Portofino ( you can enjoy a pedestrian way overlooking the sea and city btw.), the city and its neighboring is already a picturesque, but the view from the hotel and its small private bay is also fabulous. Especially that orange-colored, 4 floor old looking private house on the left was contributing a lot to the picture on the bay. The sea is refreshing (a bit chilly, afternoons) and clean. The breakfasts are ok. Staff is friendly and helpful. In sum, we really enjoyed our time there. If you wanna prefer a swimming pool (!) in a pool-like sea environment, you can go up a bit further to Splendido Hotel by paying double of course!

Based just outside the center of Portofino, this is a beautifiul, welcoming and very comfortable hotel. Very nice interior design, very helpful staff and a clever and private 'on the rocks' beach. And it truly is only a five minute walk to the center of Portofino. Loved it!

The best hotel in Portofino!
Fine arrangement, the beach and that is important bar in case of it!
The personnel is higher than all praises!
Beginning from a recepsion and finishing cleaning.
Especially there was a wish to thank once again Marko (big), Marko (small) and Manuel. We miraculously spent time, as at home! Once again all Gracie Mile!
Kind regards
Moschos.

... but the suite we got was well bellow the standard. It was small, the inner stair unsuitable for luggage, the terrace dusty. The breakfast was mediocre and the attention only average. The view is nice, and it is located just a short walk from town centre, so if you are clear about your priorities this hotel can be a great choice.

Room Tip: Beware of upgrade offers, and be clear about the details that you expect from your room.

The hotel was well situated a short walk from the centre of Portofino, despite being directly next to the road it was not noisy and the views onto the bay were stunning!
Service was excellent, the room was very spacious, although the bathroom was a bit tight. Breakfast was very basic but adequate.
