This hotel is worth 4 stars and I will be staying here again. I will start with the cons and they are outweighed by the pros.
Cons - overall hotel is a bit dated but not offensive. Sort of suits the area. Bathroom was cramped.
Pros - the staff were brilliant. Excellent customer service which made the stay. Room 20 was large, it had it's own sitting room (this was considered a standard room - could fit 3-4 people) although this did not have the best view. Breakfast (included) was a continental and was of generous proportions. You cannot beat the location of this hotel as it is situated in the middle of the Portofino port. Staff showed us one of the sea view suites and you will definitely not be disappointed if you chose this room!
Would highly recommend as long as you are not expecting the brass, glass & marble.
