I just finished a wonderful few nights stay here last week with a friend and had a Lovely stay.
We were in Portovenere for friends' wedding in the grounds of the Doria castle so as it turned out, this was the perfect location as we were placed right at the foot of the castle. There is definitely a rustic charm to Hotel Genio with very much a 'family-run' feel, which I really enjoyed. The views from our balcony and the multiple terraces are also fantastic overlooking the town square and port. Breakfast is very basic but sufficient and quality local bread and a great coffee.
Igor runs the hotel with his crazy smile and warm hospitality - its a very relaxed place and probably better suited for a trip with friends or family and not the romantic trip with your significant other... this is a great spot to base yourself to explore the rest of the Cinque Terre too as the town is easily accessed from La Spezia railway station and close to ferries and water taxi's along the CT.
