Certificate of Excellence
The 5-star hotel is nestled between the famous Cinque Terre and the inspirational Gulf of Poets in eastern Liguria. Once upon a time, this historic building hosted the Convent of Saint Francis. Following careful renovation works, today it features a charming hotel with sea-view rooms, a Mediterranean restaurant and luxury services. Grand Hotel Portovenere overlooks the marina and the historic center of Porto Venere. The seafront hotel is just steps away from the boats that take you to the Cinque Terre (9 km away) and the Bay of La Spezia, which inspired poets such as Lord Byron and Mary and Percy Shelley. Palmaria Restaurant, with its scenic terrace overlooking the sea, pays homage not only to the flavors of the Italian Riviera but also to many of Italy’s most beloved dishes.

We had a small studio with a separate living room and a little terrace. The views are so beautiful, really amazing. The hotel is right in front of the port and just a few meters away from where the shops and restaurants are. Service excellent, and the breakfast on the terrace is

Definitely the nicest hotel with the nicest location in Porto Venere. Views are amazing, the outside area is amazing and the breakfast is good. The only crit I have is that the service doesn't seem to come naturally, perhaps a bit forced, perhaps they try to hard, or perhaps it i

Hello. We have rented a Mercedes Benz Bito Van that is 1901mm in height and 1928mm in width. Is this too big for the parking garage? If so, are there other places to park near hotel? Thank you!
Dear dsmith171, Size of MiniVan is fine to get in but the spaces in the CarPark are quite reducedl to manevuer ... what I would suggest is before getting to the hotel on the same day to get in touch with us so that we can organize with the Parking staff to be there on your arrival to better accomodate the Van. Kind Regards, Front Office Team
