This hotel is located right across the street from the beach and the Lido Beach Cabana and Ristorante. The Hotel Santa Maria staff was very pleasant, helpful, and spoke English. Our room(s) were on the top floor with a patio and had wonderful views of the beach. Even though our room decor was a bit dated, everything was well maintained... More

We stayed for two nights and both their rooms were really clean and their staff was really helpful. Although it was very late night, they helped us and made our check-in. The location is easy to find when you go by your own car.

The hotel is located in a convenient location in the vicinity of the city center right on the beach. The staff are all lovely and make you feel at home. I would recommend this property for all kind of travelers.

We spent 9 days at this hotel. Arrived and found we did not have a balcony or sea view. Not the hotels fault as I hadn't requested. When I asked if there was a balcony view available was told not for that night, but they could accommodate us the following day. And they were true to their word. We left... More

We stayed here while on a motorcycle trip through Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland, August 2012. Very nice, clean hotel, well appointed rooms, private secured parking. We paid a little extra for a "room with a view". The staff were very friendly and were very pleased that we spoke " un po Italiano" (a little) and they all spoke English.... More

We were tired from the flight and just wanted a decent place on the shore for a night, so this did nicely. The staff was great and the rooms adequate. Parking was convenient enough. The shore is busy and crowded - this isn't a natural location. Chiavari was very pleasant to walk around and we found some nice places to... More

Looking last minute and still found a wonderful hotel across from beach. Delightful garden area for meals. Friendly staff. Locked area to park...extra charge, but worth it. Shops are close and carry a wide variety of merchandise. Felt totally safe wandering area alone.

After reading reviews on this site I thought I would try this hotel. Like many on arrival the hotel seems nice, maybe I was unlucky but that's where it seemed t go wrong. The hotel is very clean and staff seem attentive but many things are not good. The Internet didnt work if you walked ten feet either side of... More

The location of the hotel is great as it's only a short walk from the station and it's right in front of the beach. The receptionist very kindly gave us a room with a sea view even though we were on a Smartbox weekend. If you're looking for luxury, then you won't find it here, but the rooms had everything... More

Arrived at the Santa Maria HOTEL after taking a taxi from Chiavari station ( 8 euros). First impressions were very good. Check in very easy. Booked a double room for single occupancy with a seaview and inclusive breakfast. Room number 308 is a very small double and certainly not big enough as a twin. There was a nice balcony overlooking... More
