This is a funky, arty, classically fresh hotel. It's not on the sea front, so you don't have the noise pollution, it's quiet and just very very pleasant. Staff are very accommodating, nice breakfast and really well located. Ideal for short stays. Only downside is the slow lift, so we ended up carrying our bags from 4th floor.

This modern hotel is refreshing after staying in the more traditional Italian style hotels. Funky and functional. Great location - close to railway station & town centre. Handy location from which to explore Portofino and the Cinque Terre. Walter speaks excellent English and makes breakfast memorable.

We spent 3 nights at this wonderful hotel last week. We had two rooms, one in the from with a lovely balcony for m wife and I , and one in the back for the kids. Both were on the 3rd floor. I am surprised to read reviews that claim the views were less than spectacular. The view from our... More

Difficult to rate the Santa Margherita Palace Hotel. I gave it a 4 mark given how much they went out of their way to accommodate us...and we're not difficult guests. We booked late, very late and nothing was available for mid August in Santa Margherita or Portofino. Nothing except a two bedroom appartment in an annex of the hotel 300... More

Located in Santa Margarita half way between the Cinque Terre Coastal Walk and Portofino this could be a really good hotel. Unfortunately it is just average. On checking in the foyer had a no atmosphere at all. We booked a junior suite and that was a resonably large sized room but it was also stark and not very well maintained.... More

We had two rooms for our family of six. Both rooms were very spacious, clean and nicely decorated. Our shower was a little small but we had a nice outdoor balcony. The other room had a big tub with a nice rain head shower. The location is just a short walk from the waterfront. The staff was very attentive and... More

This is a great hotel with a excellent staff. Location is great, just a minute walk into town, just no sea view, which was ok for us. The town is breathtaking and it's literally a 10 min ride into portofino. Words cannot describe this area's beauty! We found a beach on the other side of town which took no more... More

Very convenient and nice walk to everything in town. Staff could not have been nicer and more accommodating. Room was clean and nicely modernly decorated. Breakfast buffet was good. Unless a view is important to you there is no reason to stay elsewhere.

Absolutely no reason you shouldn't stay here. But I'll get to the things you need to consider in a moment Staff is outgoing, professional, speaks good English and ready to help. They know where stuff is and how to give directions and feedback. The hotel is clean and stylish. Rooms are good sized, bathrooms even more so. You can walk... More

Beautifully situated, lovely Seaview, well equipped room, good service. Having an umbrella will cost you 13 euros in which I feel unwarranted. Breakfast is ok but no English breakfast! Only scramble eggs and toast.
