Can’t think of anything
I really enjoyed my time here. Lovely view from restaurant terrace and the breakfast was wonderful. The location is perfect - right across from the boat and near the castle. Toiletries and towels are very nice. I agree with others about the elevator but plan accordingly and you'll be fine. Staff were efficient and helpful - not super chipper but hard working and had answers. Loaded with Americans but so is all of Cinque Terre. Leave the hotel and you hear the Italian.
Can be loud. They have wood floors so you hear the chairs moving above. Elevator fits three people so during a busy stay may be a problem for some. But again, nothing huge.
Gorgeous, modern, clean, elegant, great value for the money, perfect location.
No conditioner :(
Great location, nice room.
Portovenere was an ideal location for a visit to Cinque Terre. The views were incredible from the hotel. Loved it!
first of all the location, couldn't be better. The rooms were excellent (outside view rooms). the staff was very friendly and helpful.
need to renovate the elevator...extremely slow and too small
The hotel was very well situated and our room had a wonderful view of Portovenere and the harbor front. Helpful staff, as well.
Minor point, but the room could have used a fresh painting.
The position of the hotel was very convenient for the little town of P.V. with plenty of restaurants to choose from. The room was always cleaned thoroughly and a pleasure to return to at the end of the day -excellent cleaning staff.
The breakfast service was inconsistent and we often had to search for staff to ask for our coffee. The orange juice set out in the jugs was not good - from powder I think. We only discovered on the last day by pure chance that freshly squeezed orange juice could be requested - it was a well-kept secret! The lift needs updating - very slow and frustrating. The fact that one could not walk from the reception up to the fourth floor or down again without going outside is bizarre. Also some kind of pleasant indoor lounge - with a view- would be nice for rainy days.
The location was the best part of this hotel. The view from the room was very nice.
The hotel was generally out dated, old looking furniture, carpets, bathroom, lift, TV etc. Is really needing renovation and considering the 180euro per night price tag..people expect more value for your buck.
Room without sea view. Spa and wellness center are not free but too much expensive.
Hotel is situated overlooking the Golf of Poets. Great view of the water, boats and city streets from our room. Great breakfast and dining room with large patio overlooking water and city. Manicurist is adorable and did great job.
Reception staff not too helpful. One word answers to our questions.
The Hotel is right in the centre of Porto Venere,and is the old Convent so has something of the old as well as good modern facilities.It is easy to reach from La Spezia, (bus,taxi,boat).We found it good base to explore the Cinque Terra coast and national park.It is good also for just relaxing in Porto Venere with its sea harbour,cafes, restaurants and shops.Dont miss the mid august festival period with the procession for the White Maddona,a visually stunning experience.
The staff were extremely kind, the view superb and the breakfast really good (in a terrace overlooking the sea &town)
No cable tv, no internet in the rooms (only in reception hall) and, in general, the price should be a bit lower.
The Grand Hotel Portovenere, which used to be a Franciscan monastary in the 17th century, has recently been carefully renovated, combining its ancient beauty with modern sophistication. Overlooking the picturesque village of Portovenere, our guests will be charmed by the elegance our hotel offers amid the backdrop of the Gulf of the Poets, an area coveted by travelers for centuries.Just steps from the village center, the Grand Hotel Portovenere offers remodeled rooms in the soothing shades of sea green, sand and yellow to reflect the light and colors of the environment surrounding the hotel. Our large panoramic terrace is home to our restaurant Palmaria and Venus bar, both open to resident and non-resident guests alike.
