“Best Hotel in Santa Margherita!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

My husband & I spent two nights there in mid-October. We got off the train on a whim and our taxi driver recommended this hotel. They treated us likes kings! The price was very reasonable. The staff (especially Anna), could not have been nicer. She was very helpful to give us directions and suggestions since we knew little about the area. The room overlooked the pool and garden and the view was outstanding! We even had bedroom slippers, which was such a treat! The breakfast (included) was wonderful and presented very nicely. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious. We slept like babies!! This hotel is postcard beautiful and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. We also visited Portofino while there, which we highly recommend. Santa Margherita is a beautiful city with great restaurants and shops. On our departure morning we were leaving very early so Anna made sure the kitchen had two packet breakfast bags ready for us to take on the train. What a lovely gesture and much appreciated. We would love to visit again one day and stay at the Hotel Metropole again. It was a wonderful experience.

A fabulous boutique hotel with an attentive staff, well appointed rooms, a good restaurant and a great location. Private beach, pool, a gym and free wifi are all included. Would definitely book here again.

My husband and I spent 4 Devine days at the metrople. Perfect position near train station, which makes easy access to the cinque terra and gorgeous Rapallo? Also Camogli is a beautiful seaside town 10 mins train trip away. Thank you to wonderful staff who could not have been more helpful. From car hire to restaurants, they were outstanding. Amazing view from rooms and delicious breakfasts. Can't recommend this hotel any more highly
Thanks again from 2 very happy Aussies

I recently spent five nights at Metropole. It has a quaint feel, but has been thoroughly updated and is very comfortable. The staff was pleasant and helpful. There was an excellent complimentary breakfast every morning. The location is great, walking distance to everything you need, including the train. I had a room that looked out at the bay, and slept every night to the sound of the sea. One day we walked the hiking trail from S Margherita to Portofino, I recommend this hike. I hope to go back again.

Room Tip: I asked for a room looking out at the sea

We arrived by train to Santa Margherita. This hotel is very near to the station so you dont need to get a taxi its just a short walk. Whilst near the station you do not hear the trains. The hotel is in lovely grounds and has an annexe where we stayed. The room was nice and bed comfortable. When we opened the window shutters it had the most beautiful sea view, Well worth having.
The reception staff are very helpful and friendly. The breakfast is good and seating is outside if the weather is good. The only thing we didn't like was that the head waiter seemed to prefer the guests who appeared to be more affluent and attended those tables only.
We stayed here for 4 nights and could have spent longer here had they not been so booked up. I liked the chairs placed on the paved area directly next to the sea where you could watch the Cruise ships and boats go pass or just take a dip.

We stayed,in a perfect triple with a wonderful view, for 5 days in June this year and could not have made a better choice. The staff were brilliant and their attention to detail was second to none. We were particularly impressed with the family feel to the Hotel and that coupled with excellent food and service made a real holiday for the close to our trip.

To Giovanni Ciani and his wonderful staff, including Antonio, Denis, Gina, Alice, Julio and Luca: Grazie mille for making our recent 4th stay a memorable experience. We love everything about the Metropole -- the natural beauty of its setting, the gardens, the stone promontories along the sea and the relaxed formality of the dining room. We can't wait to return.
