Was supposed to stay at sister hotel located on the water just outside of Portofino; however, eventhough, we had confirmed reservations the sister hotel decided to close early for the season and we were redirected to the San Giorgio (Hotel 8) for our two night stay. Although they apparently notified us by email we did not receive the email and was unaware of the change until we arrived at the sister hotel.
The San Giorgio is chic and trendy and located up the hill from the Portofino shopping area. It has no views and construction going on around it.
Overall the hotel is okay, but I do not believe it is worth the expense of 400 plus Euro per night. As another review said, if you want to see Portofino you could easily do it from Santa Margherita Ligure and stay at one of the grander and less expensive hotels there. We have done this before and had a far better experience.
