A very charming castle, located a bit up the hill, 800m (very easy) walking till the beach. The rooms are simple(castle like), clean and big. Some bathroom facilities are available in the room. There is also a fridge, a hairdryer and an airco. On the roof of the hotel you can enjoy sunbathing but without pool or shower. The staff... More

This hotel is quite unique, a beautiful castle overlooking the town, spacious rooms, impressive staircase, magnificent building with elegant charm. Excellent service, delicious breakfast, just a short walk to the centre. Great value for money, highly recommended. I will certainly come back!

I can't say enough about this fabulous Hotel or the lovely staff. My husband and I have just spent 2 nights there after having our passports stolen. The staff couldn't have been more helpful as far as printing off documents and getting us sorted with train tickets etc. The room and breakfast were great, and close to town.

It's really wonderful castle. Amazing free breakfast with breathtaking view. Short walk to centre. I have no words to describe that atmosphere. But was truly enjoying! If you want to feel Italian culture best place to stay

We stayed here in September for 2 nights on a two week Italy/France trip. The hotel building/grounds and the area is very neat and beautiful. We loved the roof top area. Great views of the city. The breakfast was great. The room itself was just a basic room (like an apartment) I did expect it to be as quaint as... More

Just returned from a one night stay. Hotel is an old castle with a great view from the terrace. Adventure begins immediately on your entrance to the hotel.....WOW!! Pretty tight, uphill curve to get to the parking. Rooms were a good size and clean. Bathrooms were new. Short walk to city center and to catch boat to Portofino. Breakfast buffet... More

The hotel is an old castle-like building located a short 15 minutes walk outside of the city centre. View from the rooftop is spectacular. Small hotel with a lot of charm. Interior is somewhat worn down, but that adds to the charm thing.

This hotel is about 15 minutes walk from central Santa Margherita. It's convenient, clean and pretty cheap. We were upgraded to a sea view room which was great, however this also meant that we received the noise from the nearby train tunnel exit. The curtains are pretty insufficient if you need darkness to sleep. Breakfast was sufficient and there was... More

The hotel is very old and has a very grand staircase, and I think at one time it was a private house. The room was clean, but tiny and the bathroom not very good. The rooms are decorated in a shabby chic style. The breakfast was fairly simple with nothing special and they did not have any fresh orange juice,... More

We stayed two nights and were positively surprised by how beautiful the hotel was. We stayed in a room with a view (number 30) which we highly recommend. Compared to other 3 star hotels we stayed in similiar places the room is very spacious, well maintained, bathroom clean and tidy, furniture classic suiting the building with lots of storage room....
