We are currently staying at the Albergo Nazionale and it's brilliant. The location simply cannot be beaten. It is mere steps onto the main harbour front in Portofino. At breakfast you also look out upon the harbour - it's just glorious. The staff are lovely and very helpful, especially when we checked in with Luca who was delightful. I would...

This hotel is right on the sea front and very good value for the money. We stayed at room 16. Nice clean room with a terrace. There is free WIFI,a mini bar and tea making facilities in the room. Parking is about 100 metres away and I heard that it was 21 Euros for 24 hours.

Three star hotel but would rate it 5 stars for location and service. Stefano in particular went out of his way for me. The room was small, but comfortable, spotless and air conditioned.A stone's throw from the picturesque harbour, sophisticated boutiques, bars and the highlights of this wonderful village. Will definitely be back.

We stayed at the Alberto Nazionale for four nights this November, it's the quiet season so there were no crowds. But having said that, not everything was open. The hotel is perfectly placed right in the middle. Our window overlooked the bay and you could hear the water lapping on shore . The staff was great and very helpful. We...

Me and my boyfriend visited Portofino for a 1 night/2 day trip and decided to stay at Alberto Nazionale, it's right on the harbour front so great location. I would definitely recommend this hotel as it's lovely! Also the restaurant attached is very good and would highly recommend their pizza's.

Hotel is great Staff is amazing best ever I've encountered and I've been around 3 continents City is magnificent Just keep in mind it's a 3 star hotel not 4 as some sites might suggest. Thou prices are 5 star. Other than that It's flawless, see front with marina view. Best location in town.

I went to portofino and wanted a clean and not very expensive place to stay at. Prices there are very high, I was happy with this simple hotel, it is clean and the staff are super nice. View is great in the breakfast hall, the price is definitely attractive compared to other hotels right next to it. Would definitely stay...

Nice location and clean/modern room. Terrible restaurant though with poor food and sky-high prices. Visited Portofino with great expectations. The photogenic nature of the little town was wonderful - building colours, sea and sky. However don't expect anything to be well priced or good value. The tourist certainly pays through the nose.

Location is perfect - a few steps to the port. Accommodation in Portofino is expensive and this hotel was our best option which has such a good location. Breakfast, wi-fi and personnel are also good. Therefore value for money can be considered as fair.
