Andover, Massachusetts
Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel has parking. It is walking distance to a castle, a boat to Cinque Terre, restaurants, and hiking. Since this is an authentic Italian hotel it does not have coffee maker in the room. All staff were very gracious. The room was elegant and very comfortable.

The Grand Hotel Portovenere is in a great location overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and the beautiful town of Portovenere. It is within walking distance to the ferries for Cinque Terre. I had one of the best desserts ever in the hotel restaurant. The rooms are beautiful, and the staff were very helpful.

Really good hotel. Nice decoration. Good beds and nice room. Good products. Breakfast ok but not exceptional. Nice barmen and excellent cocktails and know-how. Perfect location. Just in front of the little port of Portovenere. Excellent for exploring around.

Portovenere is one of those totally undiscovered places that we all dream about. And long may it last. Absolutely beautiful place. A small harbour threaded with incredible restaurants.
