There is only limited parking in front of the hotel. If you miss this, you only pay quite a modest fee to use the hotel car park. Unfortunately we were only here for an evening and the night. In spite of the hotel giving a slightly impersonal look from the outside, the staff are friendly and helpful, and most if... More

We stayed here for one night. We arrived in the morning and our room was already done and ready for us. in the hotel you can buy tickets for turistic ferries to go Portofino and San Fruttuoso. Breakfast costs 5€ each person if is not included in the offer. Walls are very thin, we can hear everything, train included.

We chose this hotel for its seafront location but our expectations were surpassed because of the staff, facilities and food. The rooms were spacious with comfortable beds, sea views, free safes and ample storage space. The bathrooms were excellent too with good showers and generous size towels. Everything was spotlessly clean and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for... More

Chiavari is an excellent place to go for a taste of the real Italian way of life, and the SantaMaria suited our party of six British Italophile grannies very well indeed. Directly opposite the lido with its three pools, access to the Mediterranean, and café, all our rooms had sea views, most had balconies, and all had en suite bathrooms... More

When we arrived at the hotel, we could park right in front, as there are several parking bays provided, very convenient if you have a lot of luggage, as we had. The reception is small but neat, the lady quickly checked us in and we went to our room. This hotel is very long and narrow, the majority of the... More

Chiavari is the perfect location on the Ligurian coast and the Hotel Santa Maria is the perfect place to stay. (I almost want to keep this secret) During our visit, my son got sick, the kind and helpful manager Giorgio drove us to the hospital in the middle of the night and took care of everything. The rooms were comfortable... More

As with other hotels on our road trip, I chose this one for character. The location is a bonus. Great spot across from the beach and a stroll along the lovely promenade or into the old part of town, full of shops and great restaurants. This is a lovely seaside hotel that may have seen grander days - but then... More

My last stay at this hotel was 2 years ago. I am pleased to say that the standards have not slipped during this time. Excellent location in Chiavari, opposite the beach on the Lungomare. My room this time was 311. A double room located at the back of the hotel with, what was described as, a garden view. The view... More
