“Great find in a small town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We were fortunate to be in Italy when all you tourists were home :) And because of that, we were able to land a 4 star hotel usually 280+ euros a night for 99 euros. We had a room with a great balcony overlooking the marina. Best seat in the house! The staff was friendly and the breakfast was very good. Located in the heart of town and the only hotel on the water. Loved it and so glad we got a great deal!!

Room Tip: 1st floor with a balcony! Very large balcony with table and chairs.

Perfect location in front of the marina with nice view over the yachts and boats. Sunrise is directly entering in your bed to wake you up – Incredible. Geographically Santa Margherita is on the west coast and you expect to see Sunsets, yet the hotel is situated in a bay and you surprisingly enjoy Sunrise. Clean comfortable and all rooms with sea view is the best you can want… and in addition Sparkling vine for breakfast. Easy embarkation for one day for Portofino, one in Cinque Terre and one in Genova. Restaurant next door is perfect for local traditional dining.

After a 11 day cruise of the Medeterrain with my wife on a MSC vessel we desired a break before the long flight back to Australia
We found the hotel,off season, in the middle of town to be one of the BEST hotels we have stayed worldwide
Staff go beyond ones expectations,good in price and the best views

We are a large family and the staff at Hotel Laurin made us very welcome. Our rooms were lovely and overlooked the marina. It was great to sit on the terrace and enjoy the view. The hotel was in a great location, we easily walked to restaurants and shops and enjoyed a fantastic walk to Portofino. Breakfast was included and there was a good selection available. One very small negative was the wifi - it was very slow. However, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to visit again.

Room Tip: Rooms with a terrace overlooking the marina were lovely.

This is a lovely small hotel right on the port in Santa Margherita. Our room had a lovely terrace overlooking the water. It is very clean, though small rooms. The best part is the location and the outside space, terraces and pool.

Room Tip: Ask for a terrace and water view.

Ideally located in front of the port and within walking distance of great restaurants along the main road, the Hotel Laurin is the best choice for staying in Santa Margherita. The front desk staff are warm and extremely helpful, with a genuine warmth that made me feel immediately at home. The rooms are excellent - quaint, but well-appointed with beautiful private balconies where you can catch some sun and overlooking the harbor. From service to room quality and location, I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
