Beautiful location in Cinque Terre. The hotel has a private beach. Free beach towels and a fee of 20 Euros to rent a sun chair. Sun deck on the roof with free towels and free sun chairs, a little pool (for lounging, not for swimming) and a jacuzzi. Average room, nothing fancy. For Italy a nice breakfast buffet. The staff...

A beautiful old hotel with character and charm which has its own beach space across the road. Our room, located on the 5th and top floor, was very good and probably the largest we have enjoyed whilst in Italy. It has its own balcony with great views, and a bathroom which is modern and huge by European standards. The room... More

I must admit I did not have very high expectations when my husband told me we are going to a Best Western in Santa Margherita Ligure. Fortunately, I was proven wrong, in the most pleasant way. The Best Western Hotel Regina Elena is an elegant hotel at the end of the row of buildings, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The staff... More

My husband and I booked a 3 night break to celebrate an anniversary. We picked the Best Western for its location and good reviews. We had a small but lovely room with a sea view. I would definitely recommend a sea view room, the view was beautiful. The hotel is on the opposite side of the town to the railway... More

The hotel is located just on edge of Santa Margherita, which is nice since it means you are a little away from the noise and crowds, but still close to everything. The bus to Portofino stops in front of the hotel and costs e1.80 when you buy tickets at the front desk. The hotel inside is fine, with pieces from... More
