We stayed two nights in this lovely place at the beginning of our 16 day European holiday and it was not enough. Friendly, helpful staff, upgraded rooms with a sea view, nice breakfast buffet, good parking, and a lovely city. It was the perfect home base for our Cinque Terre excursion.

We started looking for a hotel in Portofino but found the prices too high. Then moved along the coast and looked at Santa Margherita Ligure. Great move as after visiting Portofino we decided SML met our needs much better, good transport link and good range of hotels and restaurants. After checking the Tripadvisor reviews we chose the Metropole. Really great... More

We had a great 4 nights at this Hotel, very relaxing after coming from Rome and Sorrento, nice to be at a slower pace. The Hotel was very clean and in a great spot with beautiful views. We loved our stay at Santa Margherita, the staff were helpful with the questions we asked.

We loved this hotel, everyone was friendly and helpful. Did not realize we had paid for dinner, but so glad we did. The food was great and service was perfect. Love this hotel and would definitely stay there again.

Arrival by car was a breeze. Parking is available for a fee. Lucky for us we received an upgrade to a beautiful room with a view of the sea. Our room and bath were renovated and immaculate. The tall windows allowed maximum light & a splendid view. Breakfast was excellent with many choices. The capuchino was delicious. Massimo, at the... More

I have just returned to Australia from europe where we spent a couple of days at the metropole. We fell in love with the region and we had much to compare it against as we had travelled almost all the major coastal attractions and towns around Italy and this was our final untouched region. The service was amazing and the... More

We stayed here just one night, but loved it. They were very friendly and accomodating. This is located a bit up the hill and away from most of the other hotels but everything is very close in this little town. Easy to find from the train station, many great restaurants nearby, and a great value for the money. This felt... More

As part of a tour group, we were given a room on 2nd floor with a large bedroom and a very large patio (incl chairs, table, and 2 lounges). The room itself was fairly noisy, both from inside hotel and out, and the bed was very hard for us, but was otherwise clean and had plenty of closet space. A/C... More

When we told friends we were planning to travel around Italy for our honeymoon, everyone told us we had to visit Cinque Terra. And to stay in the romantic, coastal town of Santa Margherita. And they were right! A travel agent suggested Hotel Metropole and it was a great suggestion. It is a larger hotel, a block from the train... More
