Santa Margherita is pretty - there is no doubt about that - but with any place this pretty prices fluctuate.. what you see on a website, or on a booking site or even via a telephone call.. are merely a guideline.. The Hotel Argentina is in a great spot and the sweetly warm welcome you get is all good till... More

Visited here in June. Good location, lovely hotel. Stayed for 2 nights as we were only passing through but the hospitality of the staff was second to none. Olga was a perfect host and Nico her husband was a brilliant chef. Will definitely be visiting again, highly recommend it.

This hotel was the best surprise of my trip due to its relatively low price compared to what you can find in Portofino. The manager is a very nice person, smiling and very helpful. The hotel seems to have been renovated recently. Rooms are very clean, nicely decorated with a nice view over the beach. The location is perfect :... More

Stopped in for a beverage on our walk to Portofino. Olga was a gracious host. Ordered some snacks - all very tasty - plate for 1 was enough for 4!!! Olga was so helpful and friendly to everyone who stopped. Reasonable priced place to stop for a quick drink if you are walking to Portofino.

We stayed here for 3 nights during our visit to the Italian Riviera and absolutely loved it. It's location was perfect - 20 minute walk to Portofino harbour and 30 minute walk to Santa Margherita Ligure. It was also directly across the road (approx 50m) from paraggi beach, which is one of the most popular in the area. The staff... More
