This hotel is in need of refurbishment. Smelly rooms and corridors is a draw back. That being said, the place is nice, staff is very attentive and helpful, room with a cramped balcony still gives a seaview. A room facing the road would be a bad idea. Outside area by the water looks very nice.

This place is nice. And it is open in January. My only complaint, and not enough to knock off a star, is that they nickel and dime you. $15 for parking, $10 or breakfast... But if you shop around you can get a nice room for $80 Euro (only $92 US right now!) and you get a very clean room... More

Close to train station, We're 50, and it's an 8 minute easy walk downhill. Front desk perfect, easy walk to small building on waterfront with bellman leading. Waterfront room quaint and clean. So many amenities. One person made this a slightly less than perfect experience. It was the senior server for breakfast. He didn't serve our table, but was bossy... More

Great location though it was noisy with the road outside. Lovely beach area with chairs. Nice staff. Rooms were comfy and clean. Not a good value though as rooms were pricey. My daughter and son in law stayed at Hotel Villa Anita (which is up the hill overlooking water) and there room was much more reasonable and they liked it... More

My husband and I just returned from our trip to Italy and France. Our stay at this family owned and operated hotel was definitely one of highlights of our 2 week trip. We stayed for 4 nts. We had a meal plan which included breakfast and dinner. The breakfast was served on the deck each morning. Lots of fresh fruits... More

As you drive down to the coast for the first time you are genuinely thrilled - it is one of the most beautiful places I have visited. You weave your way into town, and then start looking for your hotel. We had booked the Metropole base on reviews and their website. When we pulled up were were, well, just bummed.... More

We stayed two nights towards the end of September. When we arrived we were upgraded to a larger room, which was very kind! We enjoyed the delicious buffet breakfast, with so many choices it was fantastic. We also had a lovely time enjoying the private beach area the hotel offered. On our second night we got food poisoning from a... More

We loved this hotel! The location was very convenient to everything. Train station, town, and boat all within walking distance. The rooms were very nice and views perfect. Very nice outdoor lounge area overlooking the water. Lots of chairs to lay out and walk down swimming. The restaurant staff really went out of their way to please. The breakfast was... More

This is the fourth time we have stayed here. The hotel is just round the corner from the train station which is 2 hrs from Pisa airport. Superb location as you can use the train, bus, boat or walk to nearby villages (only 3 miles from Portofino) - no need for a car. Choose room overlooking sea and gardens. Lovely... More

This hotel is a true "gem"! The view is unbeatable. The grounds are spectacular. The staff is professional and attentive. The pool and beach areas are immaculate. Excellent breakfast. Exceptional value. Even a nice little gym and spa area. We've travelled all over Italy (this was our fourth trip), and we're so glad we discovered Santa Margherita Ligure (as beautiful... More
