From the moment we arrived we were treated with respect by very friendly and knowledgable staff. We had a fantastic holiday here. Stayed in a large suite with terrace and had everything we needed. We had no cause for complaint at all. The breakfast was nice too. The hotel is in a great location for exploring the wonderful coast. Portofino... More

The hotel is nice, but has some disadvantages compared to other hotels in town (no sea view, for example). The staff however was very friendly, helpful and highly professional. They made us feel at home. Congrats to the great team! :) Maybe one small thing to be improved: beds and pillows could be softer....

Nicely decorated (but small) rooms, good location, friendly staff. Beds were not the best quality, spa area was extremely small. Parking is not for free. But still all in all a recommendable place to stay! I highly recommend a daytrip (or more) to Portofino! Loveliest spot ever...

I stayed at this hotel recently for 3 nights and I was immediately impressed with the service. I was travelling alone and I arrived very stressed from travelling on several trains from Bellagio, Lake Como, carrying a very heavy suitcase and trying to get it on and off trains in Italy has been my worse experience - I had no...

We stayed at this hotell for 3 nights attending a wedding in Portofino. Great Rooms with high standard in a nice town.

One of the best hotels we have visited!

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
