All the rest
We got a very beautiful room, big and bright. The staff was very nice and helpful. Great position, quite in the night. Super comfortable bed and complimentary water in the room. There is a great pizzeria downstairs, not too expensive and very good.
Breakfast was not great, but typical Italian.
Stunning setting and history. Shops. Friendliness of people.
Poor choice in restaurants - all doing same expensive food and not very well! Everything closed by 11.00 but this may be norm off peak? Hotel breakfast (included) was dreadful. The cheapest, packet,processed continental you could get!
The desk staff was helpful and genuine. They suggested several restaurants for dinner, including the on adjoining the hotel- the family business, and it was the right choice. Simple, excellent food, nice house wine.Would defintiely recommend their restaurant, compared to more pricey and touristy spots in Portefino. Nice bath to soak in after a day on the road!
No shampoo/conditioner creams. A coffee machine was provided but it did not fit into the electrical outlet!
The view from our balcony was stunning and breakfast in our room was excellent. The staff were helpful and courteous and I can recommend the hotel.
Good location in Portofino. The family and staff are very friendly and helpful - particularly in carrying heavy cases for us and even on a trolley to the bus stop at the top of the town, Their restaurant was good quality and value for money as an alternative to the overpriced ones overlooking the harbour. Our side room was well equipped with a large modern bathroom. In our view paying a premium for rooms overlooking the main square is an unecassary luxury as you are only one minute walking from it.
You couldn't ask for a better location than this. Not a super-swish modern hotel, but authentically Italian, clean & really friendly. Best place I have stayed on for a very long time. Given the competition, it is truly excellent value for money, with a better location than any of the rest.
location and cleanliness
Location. Very nice people.
Only a few steps to the harbour - perfect.
We had a sea view and breakfast was served on our patio each morning, with a view of the water. Our room was the size if an apartment, with a sitting area. Free bottles of water. A separation for the bed was also useful.
Absolutely nothing! I had to leave!
Right by the harbour, yet quiet enough for peaceful stay. Lovely big bathroom associated with our room. Tea and coffee making facilities provided. Good breakfast too.
Like anywhere in Portofino, it's not cheap, so not necessarily value for money.
Felt as comfortable as home!
Someone else did not pay.
The lovely room, clean fresh, bright
The food at the restaurant recommended by the hotel. Dont go there, its very basic and rather dull. As is the breakfast. Food in Italy is often amazing but not here.
Portofino is such a beautiful place to stay and this hotel is in a perfect location. We had a junior suite with terrace doors that opened out to the marina and square which was amazing. Our suite was quite large and would highly recommend this room if you are booking here.The staff are extremely accommodating and go out of their way to help you. The restaurant/pizza place down stairs is well priced and is also a great place to eat and has lovely staff.
we have stayed in Albergo Nazional three times and it is always very nice we eat down in the restaurant most nights. we will be going back next september.
It's a great little hotel with rooms facing the square and bay of Portofino. It's friendly personnel and superb location make it a perfect place for those who want to see & experience 'real' Portofino.
This hotel has a great location in the centre of the village. The concierge willingly offered help to bring the luggage from the (public) car park which isn't very far way. The bed was very comfortable and the room very clean, slippers and bathrobes were provided. The hotel was actually much nicer than the pictures show. No complaints about breakfast. We will stay here again on our next visit
Nothing to dislike here as long as you remember it is a 3 star hotel, not 5 star
The staff and the facilities were really good.
Lack of lift
the location , the spacious room , the view , balcony over square
Bed, nice room, very nice view
Excellent location by the small port and main square of Portofino, nice and helpful staff, large rooms and relatively cheap in comparison to any other hotel around
70's - 80's decor, apart from the added TV and AC units everything is very old inside the rooms - it actually gives a certain charm to the place and if you are out and about the whole day it doesnt really matter at all
Out of date rooms. Judging from the decor and facilities it should cost around 40-50 euros, not 200. No parking - not even reservation possible. We were lucky to be allowed to overpass a long queue by the police otherwise we would have to wait for 3 hours to enter Portofino. Secure a parking place is vital.
Excellent location and staff are very friendly. Very clean, good maid service and the bed was comfortable....
Decor was a bit 1970's...!!
Location, staff, especially Nikola! Breakfast was vety healthy! Romantic setting! I will definetely return to this wonderful place!
