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

I read the reviews for this hotel prior to making the reservation, and found that everything I had read was true! Specially the fantastic service from the front desk staff. Every morning we would get advice on where we were going, how to get there, a map, and we even got beach towels in a little back pack in case... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Hotel Minerva for 2 nights just a couple of weeks ago. When we first arrived at the hotel at 11pm after a long day of travel, we were a little bit peeved to arrive to a tiny room that was very basic. But the Hotel Minerva is receiving high scores cause of the... More

This hotel is by far the best we stayed in during our trip to Italy. The rooms were spotless, particularly the bathroom, one area I can be very picky about. The only negative thing I could say would be that the bathroom needs an exhaust fan. The breakfasts were excellent and such a beautiful garden to sit and eat breakfast.... More

We stayed in this hotel recently for three nights and I agree with prior reviews, it is an excellent place to stay. In fact, during our recent trip to Europe visiting Nice, Santa Margherita Ligure, and Rome, the Hotel Minerva proved to be the best hotel in which we stayed. The hotel staff is very helpful and friendly. Rooms were... More

We found this delightful hotel through another hotel which was fully booked (it was a Saturday night). The Hotel Minerva surpassed our expectations - it was quiet, spotless, had car parking and was a short distance walk from the main shopping area and port of Santa Margherita Ligure. The room was a little small, but nevertheless, had all the qualities... More

We just spent 2+ weeks traveling through France and Italy staying at truly wonderful B&Bs and small hotels. Had a nice time at each but one was exceptional. The Hotel Minerva in Santa Margherita Ligure made the side trip more than worthwhile, it was exceptional. The Hotel is two blocks off the beach and busy streets which adds a nice... More

Excellent 3 star hotel: our room (101, 2+2 p) was renovated in a modern style and had a mezzanine for 2 (kids) to sleep on. Price for these extra beds 50+50 a bit high. Balcony view (on the ground floor roof) could have been better. The staff was very friendly and service was just perfect. Modern & stylish steam &... More
