“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is a beautiful hotel. It is very close to the train station. Our room was right on the ocean. We opened our windows to the waves and view of the marina and ocean. The grounds were beautiful and kid friendly.

Room Tip: Get a room by the ocean.

We had a wonderfull experience in the Metropole Hotel, it was our first time and it did not dissappoint us. After a visit to Venice we decided to stay a few daws in Santa Margherita Ligure, so we booked this beautiful place with spectacular gardens. The Metropole is very charming, clean and comfortable. The location makes the hotel very easy, just 5 minutes to the to the train station and 10 minutes to the ferry to Portofino. In walking distance the town is very close so we could find nice places to make some shopping. The staff was very helpful with us and they could speak good english. We also used the gym.
We will love to visit the Metropole again

Arrived after 5 hour drive from Venice. Welcomed by friendly staff. Rooms for family were magnificent for the view and space. We booked the villa by the sea with view across city. The only down side was the smell of the entry to the villa which stayed for the 4 days we were there, but rooms were clean and tidy. Hotel has parking but also extremely close to the train station. This makes visiting the cinque terre also very easy. When we travelled the paths were closed, but normally can go to furtherest village and walk backwards to last and then jump on to train for return trip. Portofino also easy walk from here which makes for a lovely spot. Breakfast was included for our booking and the setting was lovely. We stayed in winter but the private beach and gardens in summer would be fantastic I suspect.

Room Tip: Book the villa which is separate to main hotel and has best views over the town.

I stayed at the Metropole Hotel with my daughter in late October. The staff was outstanding, the room was fantastic and the personal care that we received was truly a joy. I would stay here again without a second thought. My daughter did not have a warm coat with her and the front desk clerk graciously offered her own coat. The grounds were spectacular and the food was very good. The hotel is truly a rare find.

Room Tip: Select an ocean view room

This was our second stay at the Hotel Metrople and they did not disappoint us. From the time you check in, until you depart the staff is very helpful. Again, we stayed in the annex and loved it. This may not be for everyone but if you like windows open and the sound of the sea splashing on shore this is great. If you want a quieter room the main hotel might be better even though with closed windows the annex is fairly quiet. Great views from both but at the annex you can open the window and feel the sea breeze. The room is arranged nicely so you can unpack, drawers and shelves, and not live out of your suitcase. Bathroom is clean, a moderate size, and updated. We like the location of the Hotel, a short 5 minute walk to the train station and an easy 10 minute walk to the ferry station. Good restaurants within walking distance and the breakfast at the hotel is very good. We think a very good value for the area. Santa Margherita is a place we vacation on our vacation and use as our final stop on our way home. The grounds are very well maintained and a good place to relax at the end of a day. We love staying at the Hotel Metropole.

What a great hotel in beautiful gardens in a beautiful town. The hotel has so much old world charm with all the modern conveniances. This hotel is very clean and comfortable. This is an ideal town to discover the beautiful coast line. We caught the ferry to Portofino , how beautiful is this place, but expensive.(take the tough walk to the lighthouse its worth it), We caught the train to Genoa for the day and took lovely drives along the coast. The staff were great and very helpful. Alice(Alicia who loves her dog and horse),Anthony and Denis looked after us in the restaurant which was well priced. The town offers great eating and shopping. We would go back without hesitation.

Room Tip: The seaview room is magnificant with a large balcony overlooking the pool, the bay and the town.

My husband & I spent two nights there in mid-October. We got off the train on a whim and our taxi driver recommended this hotel. They treated us likes kings! The price was very reasonable. The staff (especially Anna), could not have been nicer. She was very helpful to give us directions and suggestions since we knew little about the area. The room overlooked the pool and garden and the view was outstanding! We even had bedroom slippers, which was such a treat! The breakfast (included) was wonderful and presented very nicely. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious. We slept like babies!! This hotel is postcard beautiful and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. We also visited Portofino while there, which we highly recommend. Santa Margherita is a beautiful city with great restaurants and shops. On our departure morning we were leaving very early so Anna made sure the kitchen had two packet breakfast bags ready for us to take on the train. What a lovely gesture and much appreciated. We would love to visit again one day and stay at the Hotel Metropole again. It was a wonderful experience.
