We stayed for 3 nights in Santa Margherita.. which is a beautiful city and I would go back again. We took day trips to Portofino, San Fruttoso and Camoglia (see other review). The hotel recommended we go via ferry (have to change to a different ferry in San Frutosso to go to Camogli) and to come back from Camogli by... More

We stayed here for four nights. The hotel is excellent and in our view better than the three star rating it is given. The owner and staff are extremely attentive. Cleanliness is outstanding and the facilities are great. We stayed in room 407 which is next to the roof terrace spa which is lovely with great views of Santa Margherita.... More

We are used to stay at the 4-star Miramare that was full. Minerva would deserve an additional star for the position and the excellent service. The hotel is quiet and in a residential area, very close to the centre, to the port and to the beaches (we went to la Valletta Miami Beach). The staff is young and very kind.... More

We had a phenomenal 3 night stay at Hotel Minerva - I strongly recommend it for any travelers to Santa Margherita. It is located a couple of blocks from the Main Street running along the harbor so it is very quiet. But only about a 10 min walk to the "center" of town. Our room is small but impeccably clean,...

This is a lovely smaller hotel that is just a few streets from the lovely Santa Margherita harbour. The staff are extremely helpful and flexible to any requests. The breakfast included a wide variety of delicious breakfast items (during the weekend they have pancakes). We stayed in the superior room which had plenty of space and included a mezzanine level....

We were here for three nights in July and couldn't fault it. From the moment we arrived the service was fantastic, until our departure when we were given a delicious gift of biscuits for our train journey. The rooms were clean, and great value for the price paid, our room had a balcony. The rooftop terrace was a nice surprise-... More

We recently stayed at the Hotel Minerva for a couple of days in late June. Overall I'd say our stay there was a positive. The good: while not right on the water, it was a short walk down to the waterfront area/beach, and it was very quiet because it was a not on the main drag with all the cars/bars/restaurants.... More

The Hotel is neat and clean, very close to the harbor and gained an overall good review. The staff is friendly, available and succeeds in making the staying a smooth one. The very pleasant surprise was the breakfast. the buffet covered all angles and with freshly made cakes, fruit and single-dose cereal. I would recommend it on a general basis,... More

Fantastic service from the moment we arrived. The room was excellent and the staff are fantastically helpful (maps, suggestions for food, extra pillows, helping with luggage from the moment the taxi arrived, calling a taxi when we left and helping with luggage). The food is excellent. The bed and bedding were high quality. This is an excellent location for seeing... More
