This hotel is steps away from the harbor with quaint rooms and a friendly staff. The breakfast is just enough and it is nice to eat outdoors looking at the harbor. The water pressure in the shower was awesome. Rooms are typical size for Europe. There is a bus in town that can take you to a train station and... More

We stayed here for one night and had a brief, but great experience. The hotel is right in the middle of town - on the beautiful square. Our room had no view, but we spent little time there anyway. It was clean, quiet and cool - with my favorite kind of A/C (Mitsubishi heat pump type). Everyone was friendly. Breakfast... More

We had never been to Portofino before so were unprepared for the value for money (or lack thereof). We had an upgraded room that was sparse to say the least. It was hot out so we put on the air conditioning and fan then had the choice of sleeping on the ground floor where the cool air was blocked from... More

We spent three nights here and the rooms are great...they have AC! The front desk staff is attentive. Morning breakfast was a European continental style. The location is perfect just steps from the main plaza in Portofino. I highly recommend.

Whilst the location of Albergo Nazionale is great, this is a pretty basic hotel and everything was sufficient. Rooms - Clean, basic, classic decor (old fashion) Bathrooms - large and again a little old fashion (clinical). No toiletries provided so bring your own. Breakfast - their offering was pretty poor (felt like airplane breakfast on economy class) Service - It... More

This hotel is nicely situated near the waterfront and has a great restaurant. The rooms were nice and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We like the decor with antique furnitures and knick knacks. Portofino is very nice and Albergo Nazionale is right in the middle of it.

Here you will enjoy occupying one of the 12 double rooms ncorporating bath, mini-bar, telephone, TV, central heating and/or air conditioning; in short, everything to ensure a pleasant and comfortable stay. You may also be fortunate enough to occupy a room offering a splendid view of the harbour.Breakfast is provided; the hotel is served by the Restaurant "da Nicola", in which is possible to order a la carte the best specialties of the Ligurian cooking based on fish and superior quality ingredients. Lunch and dinner can also be taken in any one of the many well-known restaurants encircling the piazza.Family management by the proprietors dates back to the early 1900's and their experience ensures an atmosphere of friendly and unpretentious hospitality. ... more   less
