My wife and I stayed at the Palace for our wedding weekend. The hotel was amazing. One of the few modern/boutique hotel in the area. The staff is very professional and ready to help. We were upgraded to a loft suite and it was simply outstanding. The breakfast buffet was good but can definitely be improved. They should be a... More

My wife and I were looking for a low key ending to our 2 week vacation in Italy and settled on Santa Margherita and the Santa Margherita Palace. We chose wisely. The hotel is very modern but warm and welcoming. We arrived late in the afternoon from Florence, via Pisa and were welcomed with a complimentary bottle of champagne for... More

The hotel does not have agreat view or beach location. if you are willing to accept this then you found yourself a fantastic hotel. Our room was modern and very spatious (loft room) with design furniture, nice light colours and terras with two sun beds and sun umbrella. The bathroom was huge with rain shower, design bath and again fantastic... More

Travelled with 13 & 15 year old girls, shared the suite on the 4th floor. Came with our own private balcony with a Jacuzzi and a beautiful view of the mountains & town. Great location for boutiques, restaurants & day trips to Portofino. Hotel recommended a private boat cruise to Cinque Terre.. Amazing! Expensive & so worth it! Great breakfast... More

Very modern -- really large balcony -- great staff. The hotel recommended a water taxi to Portofino which was well worth it. We took a private driver to Florence with a stop in Pisa. Just one note -- get the price for a driver settled in advance -- we had some traffic issues that made the final price 100e more... More

This is an excellent, well serviced, very clean, quiet, modern hotel that is close to everything you would want to do in the town(which is beautiful). I highly recommend it. I would have given it a five rating if it I had had a better reception from the person who checked us in who demonstrated clearly that we were intruding... More

Sadly I disagree with many of the reviews as the hotel is nothing special and although it was full for the holiday weekend staff struggled to deal with breakfast service, The choice on offer was good, but not remarkable. Mattress on the bed in room 206 had not been turned for some time and sagged in the middle. Bizarre back... More

I have stayed at this hotel twice - both during the high season, and in the low season. It offers a modern boutique experience, in a place where classic hotels are the norm. It's got a great location, about a block from the water - and an easy walk to our favorite wine bar and restaurant. The staff and service... More

Really enjoyed my stay: stayed in junior suite, great hotel, rooms, clean, service, breakfast - all good. Very much recommend this hotel. Things to be aware of: no restaurant for dinner, they have a bar, and excellent breakfast, no swimming pool / no gym, no sea view (maybe some rooms on top floor, worth checking) - hotel is not on...

Excellent modern hotel, close to the train station and the waterfront. Everything is new and fresh and up to date. Lots of choice at the buffet breakfast. Our deluxe room even had a large terrace with sun lounges. Loved staying here.
