This hotel is a mixed bag. It is a very grand old hotel situated beautifully on perhaps one of the loveliest coastlines along the Italian Riviera with a very large garden behind the hotel. Some signs of age are apparent as well as the wear and tear from the salt air and humidity. We were given one very large and...

Stayed here for one night in March. I am a Diamond member from both Hyatt and Hilton, which puts my review in context. Pros: amazing service from every single staff member you see. I stayed in the suite facing the road / ocean and it was spacious, comfortable, and memorable. Cons: would like upgrades on the elevator and wi-fi.

All of the staff were extremely courteous and helpful. In a lovely setting overlooking the sea to the front and gardens to the rear, really relaxed ans scenic. A short walk to the marina and into town where there is an abundance of restaurants. Have to say, probably in the top 3 of holidays we have ever had. Recommended!

Ok, you come to this part of the coast to visit Portofino. Fair enough, they do have pricing power. The hotel is a grand old dame which would have fit perfectly in a grand tour. The grounds of the hotel are really beautiful and the gardens charming. The room was nice enough to lounge about although getting the attention of...

I just think this is the most marvellous, old world hotel! I had a wonderful stay at the end of October last year and have been meaning to write a review. It rained the whole time, it was the end of the season, the place was empty, but still, I loved it so much! Grazie!

I loved this grand hotel that was exceptional in every way. The location is prime - across from the pebble beach (the concessions at the beach are not owned by the hotel but some loungers are free for hotel guests, based on availability), 3 mins walk to some restaurants and about 10 mins to the center of town, and a...

Family trip with adult children and friends. Took the train from Florence to SML in late June 2014 and stayed at Grand Hotel Miramare. It was our first trip to the "Italian Riviera." It was a good rest stop at the end of week one in Italy. Took a pre-booked taxi from the train station to hotel. We received a...

Evertything works. From the arrival, the initiative of the porters to park your car, deliver your luggage, and at departure returning your car, convertible open as it was on arrival ....

The property looks beautiful; the setting is charming; the beach right across the road; tranquil gardens are very inviting; Portofino a pleasant boat ride away; and Cinque Terre easily accessible. The concierge was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. However, the reception desk was so efficient that they came across as being rude. I spent 30 minutes trying to attract a...

“ANY room will be beautiful. Sea Facing rooms are much more noisy. We wanted QUIET so chose a garden view.”

“Request a room facing the pool. It will likely have a view of both water and park and also not be near the road that passes by the hotel.”
