I had never heard of Porto Venere or Hotel Belevedere but it was recommended as a great place to stay to visit the Cinque Terre, and it was perfect! Our room was in the front of the hotel overlooking the sea. The views were spectacular! The room was an adequate size and clean. The bathroom, mainly the shower enclosure, was tiny; however, as we traveled throughout the country we learned that is very common in Italy.
It was such a pleasure each morning to enjoy breakfast in a large, bright, sunny room with a beautiful view. There was a variety of food choices including fresh squeezed orange juice and the croissants were to die for!
Hotel Belevedere is convenient to the departure points for the ferries, shops and restaurants but is away from the main part of town so is a bit quieter. Below the hotel is a lovely little family owned restaurant. When the gentleman who was serving us realized we were staying at the hotel, he brought us complimentary snacks and offered us discounts on wine by the bottle.
The hotel staff was friendly and helpful and even arranged a shuttle to the car rental location in La Spezia for us.
I found Hotel Belevedere to be a wonderful little hotel and it was one of our favorite stays during our trip. We will definitely stay here again.
