We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Piccolo Portofino. Great rooms and incredibly nice staff. The staff have us great food recommendations and hiking ideas. Highly recommend this place. A nice little jewel in a terrific little town.

The rooms are large comfortable bright well furnished with stunning views over the sea. Portofino tho is a shockingly disappointing place to eat every place around the harbour offered the same dried shrivelled tourist pasta and pizza. The guys at the hotel treated us so well tho and made us some night caps and recommended places that are off the...

Set in a crystal blue bay - a short walk amongst the trees into Portofino - we had a room with balcony to enjoy the sun and view. The restaurant has great food at the best value in town! And the staff - one and all are just the perfect combination of friendly efficiency - Lucas, Sammy, Anna, and Beatrice...

Seaview rooms are wonderful. Expect a little street noise but the view makes up for it. And the proximity to Portofino (just a short walk down a nice pathway) was great. Very nice staff and parking available.

We have been in Portofino for a three days wedding, and we chose the Piccolo because it seemed cosy to us, and because they have access to the only private beach in Portofino. We were a bit affraid by the comments concerning cleanliness and bad staff, but we tried...and no regret....the staff was so nice and the rooms clean. We...

There are not a lot of hotel options in Portofino, but visitors would be well served to find somewhere other than Hotel Piccolo. It is overpriced (like everything else in Portofino), but that would not be bad if it delivered which it definitely does not. The rooms are small, poorly appointed and poorly laid out (you can't see the TV...

Wonderful hotel with very friendly staff. We will stay here again next time we visit Portofino. The breakfast is excellent..probably the best we had in Europe. The private beach is a very nice feature and the close proximity to town is a huge plus. The only negative is the lack of usable wifi. There was none in the room and...

First and foremost: when you arrive you'll have no idea where to park! You will see the hotel on the right. 100 meters past the hotel are about 10 diagonal parking placed labeled "Domain". This is where you'll park to unload your bags. The hotel has no parking of its own so you car will be valeted into town and...

Loved this hotel, friendly and helpful staff and great location with a short and attractive walk into Portofino harbour (only 10 mins). Would definitely return. Portofino as a place is generally overpriced! But beautiful little port and good to visit for 3 days. We actually visited the hotel in April 2015 but have only got around to writing my review...

We visited Portofino for our wedding anniversary out of season nearly mid October. This hotel was just perfect, fabulous location, great food and friendly helpful staff. We had free bike hire and had a lovely day visiting nearby resorts and it was a 5 minute walk into Portofino which was beautiful. We had a lovely evening meal in the hotel...

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
