A fascinating hotel which really does feel like you are staying in a castle. Position is high on a hill so you have commanding views of beautiful Santa Margherita and the harbour below. It's also quite close to the main railway line which you soon find out if your window is open. But we had no problem sleeping with the windows closed. As others have mentioned the welcome is a little on the cool side but that might be a relative assessment because most Italian hoteliers are very welcoming. The room was quite a good size by European standards and the bathroom modern, clean and well stocked with quality toiletries. Breakfast was included and very good - a wide selection to choose from and regularly replenished. The breakfast room has a very regal (and pink) feel. The driveway up to the front door might be a bit alarming for some but if you're driving a Corolla or similar is no problem. If you aren't, there are 2 spaces down at street level but you'll have a hard time lugging your bags up. The roof top shouldn't be missed - the views are great. For charm this place would be 10/10.
