The hotel was lovely, our room was very comfortable and large. The cleaning staff and porters were a delight, they made our stay really enjoyable and kept our room super clean! The breakfast here was delicious, such a variety and a great selection of fresh fruit. It didn't have WiFi and our room view was not very good. The location... More

We stayed for 2 nights at this charming hotel in Portofino which has to be one of the most beautiful spots in Europe. The hotel is ideally situated to the port as it just a few meters from steps leading a short way down. Our bedroom was , however, only OK and the bathroom was absolutely tiny. The Wifi in... More

This hotel is extremely well situated for visiting Portofino, with the village 5-10 minutes stroll away (there are stairs). The staff were friendly and helpful with good English language skills. The room was very clean with good light. The buffet breakfast had a moderate range of choices, but was high quality. Our only issue was that WiFi (although free) only... More

lovely hotel, we liked the private beach area in particular, our room was spacious (had a superior one with a large terrace). a little advice would be to add more things to the breakfast buffet selection.

The location of the hotel is also excellent as it is situated about 10 minutes walk along a path at the back of the hotel directly into the town centre of Portofino It has good views of the harbour where many yachts...

We arrived in Portofino on a Friday night with no booking, and we found Piccolo and other options on travel websites. We drove past a few and settled on Piccolo because of its position on a beautiful cove by the water, yet close enough to stroll into town for shopping and meals. The staff that greeted us were charming, and... More

This hotel overlooks a cove around the bend from the main harbor in Portofino. We were able to walk to the harbor in less than 10 minutes and walked along a lovely path to the main beach area in the other direction. We also took a 2 hour hike up into the hills with gorgeous views of the sea along... More

My husband and I enjoyed one night with our 14yr old son at Hotel Piccolo wishing we could have stayed longer. We were fortunate to have a terrace with chaises overlooking Portofino's beautiful waters. The room was spacious with a sofabed for our son.

Excellent hotel in Portofino. Second stay here. Perfect location, just five minutes walk from the centre of Portofino along a secluded path overlooking the beautiful harbour. Staff at the hotel are always very helpful, rooms are great (make sure you book a sea view room), always clean and the ones we have stayed in have always been spacious. Great beach... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 ... more   less
