Certificate of Excellence
On the first floor of an Historical Palace of the Nineteenth Century, The Hotel Portofino welcomes travelers in the magnificent setting of the "Tigullio Gulf" Pearl of the Ligurian Riviera. Rapallo is a beautiful sea town, few miles from Portofino and the 5 Terre, the Hotel is convenient located in the city centre in the main street within easy walk to the sea promenade, the marina with the touristic dock and the railways station. The former Grand Hotel has now been transformed in a Small Boutique Hotel, managed by owners, who have completed a full refurbishment. The atmosphere, due to the intense colour, is warm and welcoming, a typical example of Italian Home Hospitality.

Hi, We are sorry to read your comment. Our hotel is a 2 Stars Hotel, not a 4 or 5 Stars! We gave you everything you asked, we were always available for you and your request. We gave you all informations for your trip, the cup of tea when you asked but you never asked us milk, otherwise we would bring you milk. The breakfast is not poor, we propose fresh croissants, fruits, home made cakes, cheese and ham … not only boxes of cereal and we propose a coffee of italian quality . We are very surprised to read this review from you. Have a nice day, Hotel Portofino

"Don't stay is the best tip I can give you!"
"ask for a room with a view."
"We had room 10 which is close to reception, so a room further away and you would find a little less noise from reception"
"Antiquated rooms and plumbing, but cozy and authentic feeling"
