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

We used their bikes, which was free since it was under 2 hours, to get to Portofino. beautiful location. Short walk from beach , restaurants and even train station . The... More

This wonderful hotel and staff made our stay in Santa Margherita one of our best ever in Italy. The beauty of the location and the courtesy of the staff were among the best that we have experienced. The hotel is perfectly situated at the closest end of Santa Margherita to Portofino – another beautiful village. It is also a short... More

This is an old Hotel with two blocks of accommodation. We were there with a large (40) person tour group -supposedly where 3 /4 star accommodation was to be provided. We were allocated a room in the old block though others who had been in both ( after requesting a change) said the new block wasn't discernibly better. The first... More

Dear Julie L, We are sorry you were not satisfied during your stay at our Hotel, but we think it’s a little excessive talking about “fiasco” or “drama” when these words are referring to a key or a tiny lift. By the way, we would like to let you know that all the staff at the reception can speak English... More

This hotel was a little out of town, but right on the waterfront. I walked to Portofino, and it was an easy stroll. Also an easy stroll to the village and the station, where you can catch trains to the Cinwue Terre, Genoa or Milan. Absolutely beautiful by night.

Parking on-site at the hotel was exciting to say the least! One of those self-service automated hoist lift, underground jobs - It was however extremely efficient and no dents!... Reception staff were extremely helpful but the room floor lifts are small and need renovating. The room we had was small and looked a little dated, the bed was comfortable and... More

We had the unfortunate luck to stay at this awful place while on an Insight Vacations tour called the Principalities of Europe. I can't believe they put their customers up in this hovel. The rooms were disgusting as were the ignorant staff who considered arguing with guests their right. Never go there
