Wonderful small hotel overlooking the harbor of Portofino! {4 stars}

The Hotel Piccolo is a charming small hotel just around the bend of Portofino. If you are driving there is a small car park next to the hotel that you can unload from then they will move your car for you. The Hotel sits facing the water and part of the harbor of Portofino.

Some of the rooms have terraces, but ours did not. Our room was quite large and had a sitting room with a couch and table and chairs. It had two large windows that opened out overlooking the water and the tip of the harbor. We loved our view and the fresh ocean breeze from the big windows! The bathroom was nicely tiled and had everything you would need. The breakfast was typical of all hotel breakfasts in Italy...nothing spectacular...but fine.

There is a very charming pedestrian lane into town that is accessed from the second floor. That enchanting walk was one of our favorite things about the hotel! The hotel also has its own private beach with all sorts of alcoves with beach chairs. At night we took a glass of wine and just sat out there on the chairs and looked out over the water. Very quiet and relaxing!

The staff was very warm and helpful and one even gave us his cell phone number so he could give us some information we needed on his day off!
