This place has steps, steps from the lift passage way to your room, (one lift stop serves two floor levels, ie one stair way goes up and one down), then a step at your door into the room, then steps to the bathroom level, then steps up to the bedroom level, ie to go from the lounge to the bedroom...

Thanks to Tripadvisor and travelocity for pointing out this hotel. It's right on the water front and, in the summer, it must be great to just walk across the road and sit on the beach or take a dip in the water. They also have a veranda right on the curb in front of the hotel where it is pleasant... More

Rooms were clean and spacious but balcony barely that with just enough room for you to stand solo. (A bit scared with kids). Staff not overly friendly or helpful. They do not have sky TV as is noted on website. Breakfast was ordinary although the older man was friendly and bought the kids a fruit of, cookies and strawberries. Palace... More

This is certainly the most unique hotel room I've ever had. The configuration of how to get to your room is very unusual. You take the elevator to the second floor, and from there you will either go up a flight of 10 steps to your room, or you will go down the same number. Once you get there, you... More

We found this place last minute -literally- we called when we were two hours away and were desperately looking for places from that night for a week! And we got unbelievably lucky! Our view was to die for! Excellent hotel, great value, best service, friendliest staff in all of Italy! Definitely coming back, with a little more planning next time... More

Beautiful hotel right by the sea. Our room was huge! And very nice and clean. We had a beautiful view of the ocean. They have a really good breakfast buffet as well. Many good places to eat nearby and right by where you can take a boat to Portofino or Cinque Terre. Also, an easy walk to the train station.

We had booked our stay at the Lido Palace based on the reviews in TA. The reviews were very good, but the actual experience is even better! The location of the this hotel is excellent - a short walk from the train, great restaurants in the area, and the beach right across the road! Secondly, the staff at the front... More

We had booked the Lido Palace Hotel in Santa Margherita Ligure, having just spent nearly three weeks in Italy staying mostly at B&B's, and coming from our previous stop in Vernazza [one of the Cinque Terre villages]. This was our second to last night, accommodation was hard to come by, and we settled on the Lido Palace Hotel [rather than... More

Well, there are a few words to describe how I feel about Lido Palace: the best staff in the world, the best view ever (the higher the better), great and convenient location in Liguria, it just makes me feel like home and wanting to go back every year. One of these days they'll decide to update the decoration and it... More

Enjoyed this hotel and the beach on our trip from Cingue Terre to Milano. After hiking this was a nice place just to relax! Good service and nice room with a balcony to the sea! In the evening had a lovely dinner on the beachboulevard!
