Stayed here 4 nights but could have stayed longer. Excellent location with a pleasant off road laneway walk into Portofino town. We did not use our car once here and chose to just relax and enjoy Portofino and walk everywhere. The hotel staff parked our car in a local parking station.
The beach is lovely even though it is all pebbles (bring reef walker type shoes). There are sunlounges on terraces surrounding the beach and also tables and chairs on a dining terrace where your lunch or drinks can be served.
The hotel as a character exterior but a very modern interior. The hotel restaurant served excellent food at a reasonable price. Some of the restaurants in town were quite expensive for the poor quality of food we received.
I agree with other contributors that it would be preferable for the hotel to advise you to park at their rear door while your luggage is unloaded. Only negative for us was the very very hard bedding. We woke in discomfort and ended up laying pillows over the mattress to help with this problem. Even with this issue we would still stay here again and would recommend it to others.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Piccolo Portofino is located in a privileged position, set on the slopes that characterize this exclusive stretch of the Ligurian coast overlooking the Gulf of Tigullio. During the sixties this location became very famous thanks to the protagonists of the star system, the nobles and aristocrats began to populate this fascinating locality to enjoy its exclusive parties and its fantastic scenery. The town of Portofino has remained unchanged all over the times, beautiful to live and to see as well. Hotel Piccolo Portofino, surrounded by the typical luxuriant vegetation of the Liguria Riviera, among the crystal clear water of Portofino and the blue sky, is a piece of art of the reception, unique of its kind. A hidden jewel, that has to be searched end discovered. Obtained from a refined period villa, today it is a boutique hotel, and from its generous terraces a breathtaking view onto this exclusive stretch of coast can be enjoyed. Inside, the contemporary design plays on strong contrasts, with combinations of marbles in white and black, and red velvets, crystals and soft fabrics. The set offers sensations of a refined, exclusive equilibrium and a romantic intimacy. Feelings that find their highest expression in the only 23 rooms of the hotel. Here, among all the comforts suited to the modern traveler, the contrasts are reduced, giving way to the softness of pastel tones, the whiteness of beds and enveloping pillows, to the transparency of the curtains behind which the gaze is lost onto the renowned beauty of this location to emphasize the stunning surrounding landscape A superb touch of exclusivity is added since this year to the range of services which Hotel Portofino is proud to dedicate to its guests. Just five minutes from the Hotel there is the legendary Piazzetta of Portofino, for a walk, a coffee or for a moment of pure relax . Or for shopping in the renowned brand stores ... more less
