We select, you rate. Scores are on a 20-point scale, and they're assigned by our members who actually stayed there. If a hotel's rating falls below 16, it's gone — so your post-stay review is actually our most important quality-control tool. Thanks for that.

The sheltered seaside village of Portofino is probably the highlight of the Ligurian coast, and in a setting like this, where a jumble of picturesque little villas clings to the rocky hillside, there’s no need for a hotel to go too far out of its way to make big waves. So the piccolo in Domina Home Piccolo isn’t necessarily a reference to the raw size of the place — the rooms are actually quite spacious by the standards of a hotel in an Italian seaside town — but it perfectly describes the atmosphere: this 22-room boutique does a pretty convincing impression of a private villa.

And while the exterior is pure classic Portofino, the interiors have been thoroughly renovated, the rooms presenting a minimalist aspect, with modern furniture and large expanses of sunshine-intensifying white. The best-positioned rooms face out to sea, but there’s not a bad room in the house — and everyone’s entitled to a front-row view of the water from the restaurant’s terrace or from the hotel’s private beach. Anyway, you’ll want to sample as many of Portofino’s other views as you possibly can. Domina Home Piccolo isn’t the sort of hotel where you’ll pass an entire stay on the premises; but as a home base from which to explore this storied seaside town, it’d be difficult to top.

Please note: Domina Home Piccolo is open seasonally from the end of March through October.
