We stayed in this wonderful Hotel in September 2016. The rooms are spacious and the staff friendly and efficient. It has a private beach where you can relax and read your book or have lunch or a drink sitting looking at the most spectacular view. We had dinner every night in the restaurant and the meals were fabulous. Breakfast was... More

A fantastic stay at this beautiful hotel. Close to Portofino with a lovely private beach. Great value for money with all the amenities close to hand. A 5 minute walk to Portofino and 20 minute walk to neighbouring Paraggi. Portofino offers plenty to do and see, whether boat trips to local towns and villages or people watching in the harbour....

This small hotel is on a winding busy road across from a breathtaking view. We loved our balcony view of the boats and amazing sunrise- perfectly relaxing. We spent a few days here on the private lounge chairs at the rocky ledges across the road. We also walked 10 minutes to the main port at Portofino for dinner. It's a... More

The views and location amazing. Room was very overpriced and a little worn. Staff were very helpful with the luggage etc because it is difficult to unload outside the main door due to the road. You literally stepped out of the main door onto the main road which could be an issue for small children. Breakfast was good and nice... More

We enjoyed our 4-night stay in Portofino and at the Piccolo Hotel. Our room was nicely located with a view of the bay with a very small balcony. The Hotel location was also good with only a 10-minute walk into the Village. The Hotel décor was tired modern and could use some updating. Although they say they have Wi-Fi in... More

Hotel with its own grotto view. Loved the access to beach. Walking distance to harbour of Portofino. Staff was so helpful. Ask for parking if needed when booking room. Excellent breakfast and restaurant. Only negative wifi was poor in room. Wifi could be accessed in common areas

Stayed here for 2 nights before a cruise from Genoa. Wasn't sure what to expect as hard to get a feel from pictures. The drive is spectacular and you suddenly stop on a very narrow road so getting the bags out was interesting! But you need to get use to the usual road situation. Nice greeting from staff. Early so... More

This is an ideal place to stay as it's location is superb and the accommodation is perfect for short stays, which is the likely requirement going to Portofino. The breakfast is very well done and very European. The staff were very helpful. By staying here one gets your car into the town and you avoid a long walk or ferry... More

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
