We went out of season and therefore there was plenty of parking in the multi-storey and the top of the top about a 3 min walk away - note that you have to pay 21 euros for 13-24 hours parking. The location is very central, right on the main square. Rooms are very spacious - ours had a bedroom and... More

My husband and I just returned from a 10 day trip to Italy, Germany and Switzerland and this was our favorite gotel. The location is excellent and we found the service of desk staff and restaurant to be excellent. The lobby and halls are charming and traditional while the room was nicely modernized and exceptionally clean with a very comfortable... More

My son and I spent 2 nights in this little 'hidden gem'. The family ran hotel is nothing fancy, but offers comfortable and surprisingly very clean rooms. Throughout my travels I've found it very difficult to find adequately clean room in Europe, specially if traveling on a budget. This hotel was definitely not one. The room was very spacious, did...

Location very good. Helpful service from parking garage to hotel with bags. However, whilst the room was modern and clean, the rest of the hotel was tired and worn. Our telephone did not work and the bathroom door did not close. Don't bother with breakfast!

Fantastic location! Right in the heart of Portofino. Room basic but clean. Tea and coffee making facilities. Reception welcome and service excellent. Breakfast was basic, waiting staff didn't deliver on request for toast or croissant. Tip: should use the space facing the harbour for snacks and drinks for both residents and public. Hotel should also sell the restaurant more to... More

Albergo Nazionale is in a perfect location and the rooms are large but dated. The breakfast was so-so but I would recommend it just based on room size and location. The front desk was helpful in recommending restaurants and a boat tour.

Everybody should know by now that this is not a modern, amenity packed hotel but it compensates in so many other ways . The location is just unbeatable if you really want to experience the Portofino ambience and vibe there is no better place to completely immerse yourself. The hotel is a matter of personal taste of course but I... More

What a nice surprise this hotel was! The location is simply perfect, our room was overlooking the main piazza, the marina and the castle were right in front of us! The views are completely unobstructed. Simply great! The best restaurants are in your backyard! The suite was very spacious and clean. The price is just UNBEATABLE for the value! The... More
