Hotel della Baia
Ranked #3 of 7 Hotels in Porto Venere
Reviewed 11 August 2013

A really nice family run hotel with an excellent restaurant, seafood to die for. A marina in front of the hotel with a bathing beach a 5 minue walk away. Rooms exceptionally clean and a great swimming pool.

For peace and quiet for couples strongly recommended - not to much local for teenagers and twentysomethings.

We loved it and will stay there again.

Room Tip: get a room at the front, not much to see at back of hotel

This small hotel has comfortable but smallish rooms. Very nice tile work and art in the public spaces. One stays here for the delightful location in a quiet town on a bay not far from the action in La Spezia, Portovenere, or Cinque Terre. The restaurant is very good, with particular attention to local fish preparations. We enjoyed the large pool, big enough to share with guests with children. Staff was very professional, a bit distant for my taste but no real complaints regarding their helpfulness and efficiency. Enjoyed waking to the sounds of seagulls every morning and walking about the village. Good WiFi connection, a plus.

A 4 star hotel in Porto Venere sounded ideal for a night away during our wedding celebrations in Italy. Whilst the hotel was reasonably equipped I wouldn't rate it as 4 stars. The reception was lovely, but overall the place was a little tired and in need of some TLC.

The staff were mostly pleasant and helpful and the pool was lovely and quiet so that was a bonus.

For location, whilst only a 10 minute drive from Porto Venere the hotel is actually in Le Grazie - some distance from the town - and a drive or cab ride from the bars and restaurants.

From the website I thought this hotel would be a really nice place to stay . Don't get me wrong it was in a lovely location however it was not in the location advertised . For people wanting to stay here for the cinque terre it is still a 5 minute bus ride or a 20 minute hike from Portovenere . This doesn't seem like much however once you are at the hotel you are stuck in the hotel ( and there is nothing to do there ). The service was terrible. No one spoke much English and no one made the slightest effort to understand. Both nights I ate at the restaurant and after a wait of 30 minutes for my meal I was given the wrong meal both nights because they had not understood what I was ordering . The rooms were clean and the pool was nice but overall I would only recommend this hotel if you are passing through the area and not wanting to go to the cinque terre . Having now been there I would now recommend people wanting to stay in the cinque terre to find accommodation in either Portovenere or one of the five towns . Any where else will require substantial additional travelling .

I think we got the worst room. The card for the lights didn't work, the telephone stopped working, the water closet worked sometimes, the pool was closed, and so on. The poor receptionist dis his best to fix things but when you start at a really low level, it's tough. This hotel is 1 or 2 star at best. It's not worth a detour. If you are in the neighbourhood or looking for a bed at a good price, then this is right. Otherwise not.

My husband and I visited Cinque Terre last weekend and we realy enjoyed stayng at this nice hotel. The first evening we ate at the hotel's restaurant and food was very good. Our room was nice, clean (the pillows were not good) with a gorgeous view of the bay, restaurant and swimming pool. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Since the hotel is at Grazie, you have to take a 10 minutes ride in the local bus in order to arrive to Portovenere. However La Grazie is a beautiful and small sailing port, with a boardwalk that allowed us to take a very nice walk after dinner. We hope one day to return to this beautufull place and we would be glad to stay again at this hotel. Highly recommended.
