Clean and modern rooms. We were upgraded to the presidential suite so we had a huge balcony with a jacuzzi- it was amazing. The service was impeccable and the breakfast buffet had some great options. Loved this place.

Stayed here just one night in early November, the weather was wet and windy but that didn't spoil our experience. The hotel doesn't have sea views but that was unimportant to us, and anyway, it is a 100m walk to the waterfront where there are bars, restaurants etc. For people arriving by train it is very convenient.

My husband and I stayed here while driving around Italy. This hotel has a very chic modern look to it. The showers are super large!

An ultra modern 4* hotel in Santa Margherita. As the hotel was quiet, my wife and I were given a complimentary upgrade to a junior suite and a bottle of Prosecco which was a nice touch. It lacks the views of the waterfront hotels but makes up with quality and standards. I would recommend.

3+ at best. The decor is right out of Saturday night fever with John travolta dancing and all the glass and chrome furnishing to go with it. On the positive, room is clean. We were in 501. Sloped ceilings to bang your head off. Tub only!!! No shower. Wife got water all over floor from hand held sprayer. Tiny chairs... More

We spent five nights at the Hotel Santa Margherita Palace and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is just down the street from the train station and within walking distance to the beach and restaurants. Our room faced the back of the hotel and was spacious, comfortable, quiet, and the air conditioning worked very well. Our room also had a few power... More

This is a classic beachfront resort. Beautifully located with an easy walk to the center of Santa Margherita and a brief train ride to the Cinque Terre. Much nicer accommodations than can be found in those smaller fishing towns. Carefully tended to by a friendly staff, they welcomed everyone from children to elders and groups to solo guests. I would... More
