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

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

Perfect location when you finally find, away from the main traffic road, very quiet. The service was fantastic, we requested a non smoking room and when we went to our room the smell of cigarettes was overwhelming. We were immediately moved to another room with a balcony and a view of the sea. The hotel is walking distance to train... More

We stayed 3 nights in mid September. Location is perfect, it is very quiet since it is off the main drag. no scooter noise! Room was immaculate and large enough...we had a standard room. The people, especially, Frederica, were wonderful and helpful. This is a family run operation with the family villa across the lush tropical dining courtyard from the... More
