Excellent service and kindness of the staff. Nice furniture and decoration but rooms are small. Location is at walking distance from center of Portofino but is situated in a valley vith few sun and no view.

The hotel is located in the center of Portofino. It's a small boutique hotel with great staff. The only thing I would not recommend is to follow their dinner recommendations as we were sent to restaurants who didn't meet our expectations.

Nice rooms, awesome roof garden and not least personal service truly worthy of the SLH-brand. Portofino is just lovely - all the small doesn't have is a beach, but this is all taken care of with the very flexible shuttle-service to sister hotel in nearby Paraggi.

We did stay 2 nights in this lovely design hotel. We have been astonished by the kindness and help of the staff management in solving our car's flat tyre as well as the concierge in booking for us some restaurants. We will come back again
