#3 of 6 hotels in Portofino
Travelers' Choice
Hotel Piccolo Portofino is located in a privileged position, set on the slopes that characterize this exclusive stretch of the Ligurian coast overlooking the Gulf of Tigullio. During the sixties this location became very famous thanks to the protagonists of the star system, the nobles and aristocrats began to populate this fascinating locality to enjoy its exclusive parties and its fantastic scenery. The town of Portofino has remained unchanged all over the times, beautiful to live and to see as well. Hotel Piccolo Portofino, surrounded by the typical luxuriant vegetation of the Liguria Riviera, among the crystal clear water of Portofino and the blue sky, is a piece of art of the reception, unique of its kind. A hidden jewel, that has to be searched end discovered. Obtained from a refined period villa, today it is a boutique hotel, and from its generous terraces a breathtaking view onto this exclusive stretch of coast can be enjoyed. Inside, the contemporary design plays on strong contrasts, with combinations of marbles in white and black, and red velvets, crystals and soft fabrics. The set offers sensations of a refined, exclusive equilibrium and a romantic intimacy. Feelings that find their highest expression in the only 23 rooms of the hotel. Here, among all the comforts suited to the modern traveler, the contrasts are reduced, giving way to the softness of pastel tones, the whiteness of beds and enveloping pillows, to the transparency of the curtains behind which the gaze is lost onto the renowned beauty of this location to emphasize the stunning surrounding landscape A superb touch of exclusivity is added since this year to the range of services which Hotel Portofino is proud to dedicate to its guests. Just five minutes from the Hotel there is the legendary Piazzetta of Portofino, for a walk, a coffee or for a moment of pure relax . Or for shopping in the renowned brand stores

We were very satisfied with our choice. The location of the hotel is perfect because it’s very central and close to Portofino city and also to the beach . Our room was huge and everything was very clean . We loved the little terrace - even we had no view to the ocean but it was a relaxing atmosphere. Breakfast was good and we loved the entire staff . Very polite and attentive to assist and help at all times . Overall a wonderful hotel ! We’ll definitely come back !

We have stayed for a couple of days in this cosy and beautiful hotel. Location is really nice but what we have really enjoyed was the professional but friendly service! We would particularly like to mention Fabrizio, what a character. Incredible how he could anticipate our needs during our stay. Definitely a great added value to this great hotel. Can’t wait to be back.

Our favore place in Portofino. We appreciate the position. Most of the time we have room with sea view. Baia del Canone is downstairs, crossing the main street to Portofino, and it's one the most beautiful. Seaside terrace is exclusive use hotel guests. Parking is available. Location is perfect to walk 5 min to Piazzetta Portofino or Paraggi.

Our room was old and not renovated, with sea view over the busy road very noisy and without sound insulation. The windows could not be closed completely (photo), the carpet was very dirty (photo), desk lamp without lampshade (photo), the couch was old and dirty (photo), the table was stuck and obviously had not been cleaned for a long time, the hair dryer in the bathroom did not work and the TV did not show any channels. The public beach at the hotel is very small and not maintained. The breakfast room is uncomfortable and the staff is overtaxed. The cappuccino was lukewarm, orders were forgotten (milk for muesli). Unfortunately the terrace cannot be used for breakfast. The only positive thing was the guy who was taking our luggage at arrival, he was very friendly. The price/performance ratio is not right here at all (we paid 350 Euro per night). We do not come back.

I love this location. It is pricey but this is Portofino!!!! The breakfast includes a beautiful spread and fresh pressed original juices. Love the private little beach cove. The walls are a bit thin so you can definitely hear whatever is going on in the next room. We didn’t enjoy our dinner as much as breakfast and would probably eat in town next time. The service is very good though!
