Sure, the rooms are a little cramped and covered in canary-yellow, but the cons end there. The beds are comfy, the ac is cold, the breakfast is tasty, the internet works (free!) and the staff are friendly and wonderful.

We drove into Santa Margherita during a downpour with no reservations. I saw the sign for the hotel and quickly ran up the street to ask if a room was available. I was greeted by the owner, who immediately arranged for me to look at several available rooms. I picked the biggest one I was shown (I believe it was...

It is the third time that we stay at the Minerva, so it is about time to write something about this excellent hotel. It is located outside the crowded city center on the slopes of a hill nearby the spectacular Monte di Portofino. The surroundings are quite and the view from the roof terrace lovely. This time, we rented a...

I absolutely loved my stay at the hotel Minerva. The hotel is couple of of minutes away from the main attraction but don't let this discourage you. It is about five minutes away from the main street and the hotel has a roof top with an amazing view of St. Margherita (and sunbathing). I booked a room with a view,...

We returned the second time to Hotel Minerva, mainly because of the functional rooms with very good value for the price. The standard rooms with balcony are simply furbished, carpet floor, a small bathroom/shower and minibar. The superior rooms are larger (balcony as well!) and come with wooded floors, overall worth the higher price, if you value it. Service is...

We have stayed here three times. It is a real find. A really good location and a very friendly welcome. We stayed in a superior room this time and thought it was worth the supplement.
