We just spent 3 weeks in Italy, and this hotel was my favorite. It was a perfect base for exploring the Cinque Terre, Italian Riviera, Pisa and Lucca. Portovenere isn't crazy touristy like the Cinque Terre towns. There is a ferry that services Portovenere and all the Cinque Terre towns that runs every hour. The hotel is peaceful and well-staffed...

Stayed here as a base to visit the Cinque Terre. The rooms were comfortable. Rooms include generous breakfast. Pool was a big plus, the kids can swim while the parents unwind. If you don't want the 10-15 minute walk there's a local bus to take boats to Lerici, Portofino or the Cinque Terre. Maitre d' was arrogant but the dinner...
