“Nice but pricey”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Nice hotel in a beautiful village that gets very quite and livable when the folks from the tour boats leave the town in the late afternoon. This hotel is very expensive especially when you consider that it has no views from any of its rooms. It is a 5 minute walk from the harbor; the staff is very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: None of the rooms have views

This was our second visit to Hotel Eight and we were concerned it wouldn't be as good as the first. But in fact it was! From the very personal greeting, wine with great conversation. To the beautiful rooms and gardens. The fresh fruit and pastries at breakfast were only beat by the attentive staff. All you have to do is ask.... This return trip measured up in every way. Thank you Fabiola and Walter!

Room Tip: Getting into the shower with deep tube could be challenging but the junior suite solves this problem...

We stayed here as part of a bicycle tour group. The property is beautiful and well located in a spectacular cove between portofino and santa margherita and easily convenient to both. They have a car that will take you to portofino at no charge and the town bus will shuttle you to santa margherita. Hotel staff was exceptional. They are highly trained, kind and worthy of comparison to mandarin oriental and ritz Carlton. In particular, the manager Christian, actually drove me 2 towns away to buy some clothes when my luggage was lost. Unheard of service. This hotel makes for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Ocean view is a must

We only stayed for two nights so didn't spend a great deal of our time in the hotel, but our short stay was really lovely.

The room was a reasonable size, bathroom was huge, and a small terrace to the side of the room. We didn't have a great view but it wasn't an issue for us as we knew we would be out and about.

It's hard not to be in a great location given the area is small, but this hotel was ideally situated just a short walk from the marina and all the restaurants.

Staff were attentive, looked after everything. The room was clean and fresh. Breakfast was good, with the continental style and cereal, but no cooked element, so no offer of any poached eggs etc.

Everything was good, but not quite a 5 star. The rooms would just need to be that little bit bigger and it's not got the views of the marina that would push it that bit further.

I never write reviews however I just had to on this occasion! I brought my mother to Portofino as a surprise birthday treat back in May. We stayed 3 nights in Rapallo and 2 nights at Eight Portofino.
I am so pleased we decided to go with Eight Portofino, the location was spot on, and the service was even better. Thanks ever so much for making us feel very welcome, we enjoyed every second and I can safely say I'll be back. Next time will bring my husband for a romantic weekend away!
The garden and hot tub is an added bonus, great to relax!
I hope you all have a brilliant summer and look forward to seeing you again soon. P.S my son loves his little teddy bear you kindly gave him! Best, Jessica and Barbara x x

We had a fantastic time at the Eight Hotel and Portofino. They provided an amazing private beach dinner for my husbands birthday at the Eight Hotel in Paraggi. The food was wonderful and the staff at both Eight Hotels were great.
