Old yet up to date hotel. The room was spacious, clean and it had a nice view of the gardens within the hotel. I had a huge pool with helpfull staff. The view from it was gorgeous! Will go back for sure!

We have just returned from a 5 night stay at the Miramare. It is one of the best hotels we have stayed in - fantastic. Everything is so well done - the hotel is beautifully maintained and furnished inside and out. The rooms are super comfortable, well equipped and decorated in soft colours.

The hotel delivers in every way. Great location, beautiful building , nice rooms, good breakfast , nice pool area, practical access to beach across the street and friendly and efficient service. My only caveat would be about the seemingly biased opinion regarding the best spots to eat in Portofino. No big deal...

Stayed here while attending a large family wedding and absolutely loved this hotel. Great position and incredibly accommodating staff made for a wonderful stay. Had a sea facing room, which I loved, but there is traffic noise. (My friends had a room facing the gardens which was very quiet and peaceful). We were a large rather noisy party and the... More

This hotel has thankfully chosen not to go down the boutique hotel path and keeps true to its roots as a grand hotel . The furniture is not the same minimal chic that has become so commonplace and sometimes just bad. However the hotel does not sacrifice on modern amenities, the AC is wonderful , bathrooms are big , rooms... More

This must rank amongst the best hotels in the world ! The views, sunshine, sea, hotel, staff and food (and vino) and even the chandeliers were just amazing. The upscale shops and restaurants in the harbour towns of Santa Margarita and Portofino and Camogli are also well worth a visit, by short boat trips (15 minutes hourly) or train (4... More

I dislike it so much when a hotel charges extra for the "sea view" and I end up on my balcony, with cars and buses and Vespas whizzing by meters below me. And the road noise doesn't abate until well into the evening. If you choose to stay here, opt for the garden view and take your views of the... More

Although this is a very nice hotel in a great location, we had such a horrible experience with the front desk staff that we will never stay here again.
