Smart Hotel, team were impeccable, great continental breakfast, although room very small for £420 a night at end of season. Chilled bars in town by water front. Lighthouse lounge bar 'Al Faro di portifino great spot. Big walk to Santa Margherita, get boat back.

From the moment we entered the hotel, we were told in both word and deed that all worries were to be left outside (I assume in the trunk of our rental car after the very windy road to Portofino!). The service was over the top fantastic, the location was just far enough to offer peace and solitude, but was a...

Booked this hotel as part of our Italian Adventure Honeymoon and what a great choice it was. Their attention to detail was something else. The staff at this hotel are a credit to Eight Hotels! The hotel is 200m from  Portofino centre which is perfect. You would return from an evening meal to find the bed turned down , curtains...

A boutique hotel with quirky furnishings, this hotel is the height of luxury and service. It's not a formal hotel- the reception is small and the guests are chilled. No wonder- the beds are so comfortable, it's impossible not to relax. Good food, a lovely garden and jacuzzi outside, and nicely located about 5 mins walk to the harbour. Room...

Contemporary feeling, close to city centre but far enough to avoid masses of tourism and noise. Service perfect, rooms small but enough space, nice lobby. No view would be only drawback, but hotel guarantees calm and peaceful nights.

Great location and the staff were really friendly and helpful. The front of house staff were welcoming and knowledgeable. The housekeeping staff were friendly, but a tiny bit inconsistent. We would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

Room was fine but small and pretty unremarkable for over 500 euro/night. Garden could be nice but actually view is across narrow gorge at top of portofino, so not exactly a sea view or quite what we expected. Service tried hard but let themselves down massively with their valet parking: they reversed our car in to the wall (cliff). They...

There are not that many places to stay in Portofino itself. Eight Hotel was perfectly located, just a short walk uphill from the main piazza. A group of very cleverly converted houses make this a comfortable, stylish place to stay

It is a great property but what it mace the difference was the staff. The swim in the beach club was amazing. It is a great place to relax except if you have to drive. the great thing is that the hotel has a shuttle and the will take you anywhere.
