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.

Just back after spending our wedding anniversary in Portofino. Stayed in a Junior Suite in the Albergo Nazionale ... and it was wonderful. Portofino is a truly lovely location. While it is undeniably upmarket, it is still small enough that it has retained a charm and character that has been lost in many Cote d'Azur resorts. And the Nazionale is... More

This hotel is well situated in Portofino and our room had amazing views. The service was good, staff friendly. The free breakfast was a little lackluster compared with the rest of the hotels on our trip.
