Loved this hotel last year and have returned again this year, but for a longer stay. Medium size, very personal hotel. Exceptional staff and levels of service. Tucked into the hillside as you enter Santa Margherita, this hotel has magnificent gardens with pathways leading through the gardens right down to the seafront. Lovely beachfront area. Superior rooms have ocean views,... More

We found the hotel to be quite good and meeting our expectations. Here is what we liked: - Location - 5 min walk from the center of Santa Marrgherita promenade and 3 min walk from the railway station - Very nice park with huge trees and flowers and direct access to water (stone platforms built over rocks, not a beach)....

The location, hotel, & staff were amazing. The hotel is a couple minutes walk from the train station (we walked to the train and to the hotel from train station), walking distance to the town square with shops & restaurants, and a nice walk to Portofino. The walk to Portofino was amazing. The hotel while a bit older was very... More

We were on a 1-night stop during a tour. This is not the best place for a short stop. The road to and from the hotel is very narrow and problematic for a large bus. The hotel has an early 20th century look, quite nice. Dinner was average, breakfast was good. Our room was small and the bath room very... More

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.

Thanks for the time that you have taken for writing about our hotel . We are happy for the nice words towards our staff; they remember the time spent for printing your special air-ticket and their pleasure to find a solution.. We were very surprised by your words “ need refurbishment” as the room you occupied has been completely renovated... More

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
