Wifi was non-existant in room we stayed in and pretty patchy elsewhere in the hotel as well, so don't expect good connectivity. the room we stayed in was pleasant and clean though small. It was near the lift and noise travels very well through the walls and door so we could hear conversations from the room next door, and wardrobe... More

A wonderful hotel in a great location, overlooking the sea. The room was perfect and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The children enjoyed swimming in the pool on the roof terrace, which was an added bonus.

Although room was small, view was great. The WIFI never worked properly, only a couple of times standing in the lobby. Was frustrating. Charged $5 each for a towel to use at pool?! Although breakfast was ok, they wouldn't let me bring up a croissant to my room for my sleeping child who was jetlagged. Was given the room service... More

We've been visiting SML for over 20 years and have stayed at the Laurin on all but one occasion. It's perfectly located, fabulous views from the rooms and the pool, the rooms are bright and clean, the staff are excellent, what more could you ask!

It was a second time we stayed in this hotel. Location is perfect, service is excellent. This time we arrived with children and they enjoyed a lot being there. While hotel swimming pool is really small, for our children (4 and 8) it was perfect. We had hard time convincing them to go to sea.

Hotel Laurin is located perfectly - right on the waterfront in Santa Margherita near the old town, shops and restaurants. Breathtaking views from your own terrace. Very comfortable room. Also a nice breakfast included. Overall, a wonderful experience. However, they make you pay for towels if you use the pool and for parking, as well as leave deposits for the... More

We booked a room with a terrace and seaview four months ago before the trip for our vocation. The highest floor was requested - and confirmed by the hotel staff. On our arrival we were given a room on the 1st floor and told that the rooms with terraces were ONLY on the 1st floor - Where in the world... More

I accidentally booked a room here that was non refundable. The price was actually pretty high for a hotel where from what I read the rooms are outdated and not very modern, i.e. 220 Euros per night. When I discovered my mistake I asked in 3 mails if I could cancel the room, since we had changed our plans for... More

We just stayed for 8 days at the Laurin with our one year old daughter and would gladly return. The staff were incredibly sweet to her and helpful to us. The pool area is perfect for a baby and lovely for sunbathing on your own as well and the staff are happy to send up drinks for a small service... More
