“Modern accommodation, stunning views, large rooms!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

We recently stayed here with our toddler. The service in the restaurant over breakfast and other meals was exceptional. My toddler broke a total of two glasses in the two days we were there. They were nothing but gracious about it, very helpful and happy to fill her milk bottle every night and morning. The food over dinner was very good. The breakfast ok.
We were shocked by the size of the rooms compared to where we have stayed in Rome and Venice. The furnishings are brand new, the balcony view to die for. The hotel was very clean and smelt beautiful. Only a five minute scenic walk to main piazza and shops. Loved it here! The best part, very affordable!

The rooms are large, clean and very comfortable. There is some noise from the street if you have a view of the sea, but it was not too bad because there isn't much traffic at night. It is a little walk to town, but it is a pretty walk if you leave from the second floor. The resteraunt is okay and the breakfasts are fair.

Room Tip: The sea view is fantastic, but ZI bet there isn't a bad room in the hotel.

This is a newly renovated hotel, very fresh and modern. Extremely clean and cared for!....They provide parking for extra 18 Euros a day. You must stay in a room with the ocean view. You'll appreciate the beauty of Portofino Bay, and the location of the hotel. First time we didn't, and it was a mistake! Second time we had a room with the view, it was well worth paying a little extra..We loved staying at this lovely hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They have a very basic breakfast. The coffee was good. I'm not a big fan of croissants, but theirs were surprisingly good...

It is a small hotel, and you might miss the entrance, on the bend.
The hotel is modern inside, and the rooms are tastefully decorated in modern style; fresh, unpretentious, and roomy.
We had a room facing the back, so, no views. For that reason, I considered it expensive: 160 euros to look at the rock is not very good. The bathroom is on the small side, but functional and clean.Our breakfast was included, a normal continental buffet.
The parking is in Portofino, in the public parking building, a separate area, and you pay 18 euros per day. Plus, you have to ask them a lift there, or take the bus up or down, because it's a long walk.
Of course, you pay for the surroundings of this nice village, but I wouldn't say it is worth so much.

We stayed at this hotel for three nights with our 1 year old son, taking advantage of a very good rate (for the hotel and the area) of less than 150€/night.
All the hotel staff has been very polite and friendly, nobody excluded, so they made us feel like home and they fulfilled all our requests.
We arrived by car and could park right after the hotel to unload our bags. As soon as we got off the car, the hotel staff came to collect our bags and took them to our room while we were checking in.
The room was large enough for our family, clean and nice. We stayed at the second floor and we had no sea view (as expected). The bed and especially the mattress were comfortable for us.
The rear door of the hotel, located at the second floor, gives direct access to the pedestrian route to Portofino or Paraggi. This was extremely convenient for us, as the main road can be dangerous for pedestrians, especially at night. Portofino is very close, I would say about 300 meters and you are in the Piazzetta.
We had two dinners at the hotel restaurant, where quality and service were very good, at reasonable prices if compared to the restaurants in Portofino. Also breakfast was of good quality.
I would recommend this hotel to all type of travellers.

Room Tip: Rooms with a seaview do have a greater value, you will have to judge for yourself if it is worth the...

We stayed in this hotel with my wife, my cousin and her husband for just one night. The hotel is small but very nicely furnished. The rooms are spacious, even more than I expected. Almost all rooms have a balcony or a terrace.

The overall cleanliness is good and the staff are willing to help with good English.

But for me, the most important thing was he valet service. There is a temporary parking place right after you pass the hotel. First you park there then after your check-in someone from the staff takes your keys and parks your car in a parking garage and brings it back when you ask without a charge. If you don't already think this is such an important service, wait until you go there.

I think this hotel is a very good option for visits to Portofino as it is very close to the marina (7 minutes walking) and has a great private beach.

Room Tip: the rooms with the sea view are excellent but are a bit more pricey.

Hotel location, view and clean rooms are excellent. Breakfasts are poor. Hotel staff are nice, supporting, but I couldnt get the friendly mood. Why did i expect that? ;)
Remember to arrive hotel by bus from s.margarita l., taxi is expensive, and not necessary.

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
