“Fantastic place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2011

We were searching for a hotel to stay on our 5 days trip to Cinque Terre. We were travelling with our 1 year old daughter and wanted something special with a spacious room and a big terasse where we could relax and she could play. Hotel Metrole was exactly what we were searching for. Fantastic hotel in the centre of the town, but with a great garden, outdoor pool, private beach and 5mins walk to the shops and restaurants. The view from the terasse was breathtaking and the staff was very very helpful. Nothing was a problem. We have booked the junior suite (room 181), which was the best room in the whole town of Santa Margherita Ligure:), with two balconies, on the top floor, completely undisturbed. I would recommend this hotel for a stay in the area if you want to do hikes (hike from Santa Margherita to Portofino is breathtaking) and if you want to go to Cinque Terre there is a train which takes you there (1hour ride) or if you want to lie on the beach and just enjoy the view. Hotel Metropole is the place for you!

Room Tip: Junior Suite - room 181

The Metropole is a beautiful, beautiful hotel perched just above the water in this lovely town. Our room had a balcony (with chairs and a fold out table) that looked out over the harbor and grounds: just stunning. The staff are incredibly helpful: my husband left a bag on the train in Genova and the Metropole folks helped communicate with the police, etc. Included breakfast is very good and includes lots of options, including American/English style choices. I would go back in a heartbeat. Booked on venere.com and got an amazing room rate.

Lovely hotel with great facilities easy walk to restaurants and shops. Genuinely nice staff. Our room was waterfront in the annex, great views and very comfortable, a lounge or couple of chairs would be nice.


A perfect spot for day trips, 15mins on the little bus to Portifino, handy to Cinque Terra, stunning walks above the town.

We loved the hotel in every way possible. Great location - walked everywhere, even to Portofino -, superb food, kind staff members, clean room, etc. I cannot say enough good things about the hotel and the people who staff it. I am very grateful to all of them! Grazie!

Awesome beautiful hotel have stayed here a number of times a 5 minute walk or less from the train station overlooking the sea very close to hotels costing five times as much that are not as niceSuper nice staff.As a frequent guest was upgraded to a suite at the Red Villa including a wonderful buffet greakfast for 120 euro.Easy short walk to town rooms were pretty beds a tad hard could have used a duvet/matress pad a bit of boutiqeing but slept pretty well.No wifi in the room but free wifi in the common areas .Overal a GREAT value/upscale choice where hotels are quite expensive.

The view of the sea, the palm trees & flora from our balcony took my breath away. The location is convenient (a short walk to the town center, shopping, good restaurants & the train station.) A beautifully furnished sun room was a perfect stop for afternoon tea after a very enjoyable 3 1/2 mile walk back from Portofino. This hotel was definitely one of the highlights of my trip.
