This hotel is within walking distance of downtown and if you're lucky, you'll be sure and visit Portofino, which is even more beautiful than Santa Margherita Ligure (hard to believe!). There are many, many fabulous restaurants within walking distance - not to mention the great food we enjoyed at the hotel!

Very easy to take an hour bus tour to Portafino from this Hotel. Hotel was beautifully set out and rooms very comfortable. Felt the breakfast was a little ordinary for Australian travellers. Suited Americans more. A 15 minute walk takes you to the town with beautiful shops and buildings. Shops a little pricy. This Hotel has a private beach front.

We spent five wonderful nights at Hotel Regina Elena. It was our home base as we visited Cinque Terre and Portofino. We lucked out and got room 430. If at all possible try to get this room.

I had inadvertantly booked into the dependance next door- with car park at the back and viewless courtyard at the front- so the Manager proposed to upgrade up to the main building for a small and simple room on top floor- with great views from the small balcony- screened from others with mature bushes- which we really enjoyed.
