Location was not exactly in the city center of Sta Margherita but maybe around 15-30mins slow walk one will reach the center. But it was located at a quiet street with beautiful view of the sea and town!
We booked 3 deluxe triple room with sea view.
Check in was quick and no fuss. Reception to concierge are all courteous and polite.
Oh...please be aware that it is a pet friendly hotel. So far the rooms did not have doggy smell. Rooms are abit to the smallish side but clean. The beds are two single beds sticking together and one has to "climb" up the bed (probably we are small sized?) and it moves abit that my hubby's bed almost fell off. Once in a while we have to push it back together. No complimentary bottled water was provided (I mentioned this because most 5 star hotels we stayed so far provided us with bottled water) but there are complimentary chips and nuts.
Basic toiletries were provided (except for toothbrush). Shower pressure was adequate.
For light sleepers, probably it would be best to get the garden view rooms as with the seaview rooms, you can hear cars passing and sea waves through the night. Though the positive side is rewarded with beautiful sunrise and views in the morning!
One room key (a real key) is provided where one can leave it at the concierge (as the chain is quite heavy) when one goes out. I guess this must be quite normal as this is the 3rd hotel that we stayed that have such arrangement. So far we have nothing stolen out of our rooms.
Breakfast was the usual fare with not much changes (we ate 2 breakfast there).
Overall we had a pleasant stay and would recommend to family and friends.
