We stayed here for two nights to see Portofino. Th hotel is nice, clean and modern...almost a little stark. The view however is fabulous and its in a good location. Within walking distance to Portofino which is a plus because it's virtually impossible to park and drive in the area. The service was great and breakfast was good! Many guests... More

Absolutely perfect. The only concern for us was parking. I think hotel should explain better how it works (because actually it works great). You basically need to park the car in a temporary parking after the hotel and then the staff will take care about your car. Hotel is in a great location and you can literally cross the street...

We had 1 night in this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a large family room for us, our 8 and 15 year old looking over the private beach. Walking to Portofino was 5 minutes along a beautiful quiet path into the centre. The private beach was lovely. Best in the morning as shaded in the evening but still... More

Portofino is beautiful and many elements of this hotel are fine. But there are a few deal breakers for us especially when you pay the prices expected. Firstly the wifi - the hotel seriously needs to sort this out. It worked in one tiny area of our room and even then it often fell out and you have to log... More

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

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
