The hotel is majestic and the dining rooms and terrace are just stunning. The hotel maintains its period features with modern amenities. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms are clean and new. The private pool and the beach are accessed via the hotel's pedestrian bridge over the main road. The hotel is a very short walk down the hill... More

We stayed at the beautiful Imperiale Palace Hotel for a few nights as part of a 10 year anniversary break. The hotel itself is stunning, sat to the left of the bay of Santa Margerita Ligure with beautiful views over the town. We really enjoyed our stay except for a few bug bears, which we felt let the experience down.... More

Wonderful hotel and great service. We stayed here for a week in August and was very impressed with the service and wonderful junior suites overlooking the sea. We eat in the restaurant every evening as we loved the food and service. My only disappointment was the walk down to the swimming pool I think my children counted 128 steps -... More

Great experience all around. The room and premises were regal, the views stunning and the service and food impeccable. While the building is noticeably old, it adds to the charm and everything was clean. I will definitely return. Rooms with sea view are a must, and we were able to view available rooms and pick our favorite.

This is a tricky one to judge as the Hotel itself is beautiful in a great location and the staff for the most part are very courteous and welcoming. The reason I am giving it 3 stars is because of the prices of the food. I am not talking about the restaurant, I am taking about the bar food down... More

Ours was a Sea view Classic room. Absolute quality. A view to the ocean for the few minutes we were in the room. Breakfast was superb with a wide range and staff very helpful. We enjoyed an evening meal on the balcony which again was outstanding. The staff in attendance again extremely helpful and attentive. There were not many people... More

This is the classic grand dame of Santa Margherita... A hotel that can easily be spotted if you follow the road from Portofino. The service is good ( although drinks service at the pool can be very slow) , the hotel rooms are huge and the views are sublime. However, it is a dated hotel that shows the signs of... More

We just returned from a wonderful 6 day stay at this beautiful hotel.. We had a wonderful sea facing room with a balcony. Service is excellent and the staff quite accommodating. The food is excellent and there are also a large number of high quality alternatives in town which is just a few minute walk. This is a great area... More

Just returned from imperial, and this hotel is beautiful and the staff are fantastic. Whoever wrote the review about it not being like hotel splendido in portofino is rediculous as hotel splendido is over 1000 euro per night . You are not even comparing hotels in the same price bracket!!!!! We loved this hotel and it deserves it's 5 stars.... More

This hotel is on a beautiful setting. Once one of the best hotels in the area it feels old and not adapted to our days: e.g., few sockets and placed very low, inadequate for charging phones and PCs, bathrooms should be refurbished (new and better taps, shower, etc), noisy air-conditioning (at least in the room we occupied, etc. Service is...
