What a beautiful location! The finest hotel in the Portovenere/La Spezia area. And it's made all that much better by the outstanding personal care from the professional staff, an excellent breakfast buffet, and proximity to the periodic daily ferry departures to Cinque Terre and Palmyra Island. Book a room at the front of the hotel and enjoy a picture-postcard view...

WOW - make sure you book a room on the front - spectacular. Wake up just as the sun is rising and see the colors of Porto Venere bathed in orange light. Go back to your room at sunset and see the magic of the light behind the houses. This is a great boutique hotel - a little formal and...

How we ended up getting this hotel, I just don't know. It was so far beyond anything I could've ever imagined, from the moment we walked in. This place could even be used by Donald Trump, and he would probably be happy staying there. That's just how nice everything was.
