HELIOS hotel had the only availability when we planned to visit the riviera but it is the place I will go back to for sure. We had read all reviews and I have to admit that I was skeptical a bit but everything dissipated the second I stepped out on the terrace of their superior double room and witnessed a spectacular view of the sea, the port and the mountains. You practically can spend an eternity on that terrace....Moreso, sparkling wine and some strawberry were waiting for us graciously offered by the Hotel staff being that we were on our honeymoon trip. The staff was nice and helpful. The restaurant excellent and the breakfeast very good in italian standards with the nicest waiter "Mario".The train station is very close, a walking distance. Beware of Taxi's from the station as it could be a very expensive trip for less than one minute in the car. Santa Margherita location is ideal to visit Portofino, Rapallo....A memorable stay for a memorable occasion.Ciao

My husband and I stayed at the Miramare for our wedding anniversary in August of 05.....What can I say it felt like walking out of Cary grant movie...we booked the hotel through The leading Hotels of the world group and honestly this is where you will get the most value...upgraded to an ocean view suite which was breathtaking,breakfast included which was amazing ,sitting on the terrace drinking the best coffee in the world and eating scrumptious pastries and fruit.Our sunlounges and towels where included in the price.
Our experience at this truly fine hotel was worth every penny if you dont want to spend the money then dont bother coming here.If your after a true Riveria experience then this is the place. We were treated like Royalty from the moment we stepped inside.The staff where outstanding and we will certainly be coming back.

This is a dump. Rated as a 4 star hotel. We stayed here for fifteen minutes using our cellphone looking for another hotel after we saw the room. Booked on Italyby for 250 euro a night..Dark dingy room, bathroom was so small had to turn side ways to get into it. TV was 10 inches so bad all you could see is shadows.bed was u shaped. smelly room they tried to mask the smell with some type of strong perfume.Would not return our money. A total nightmare.Don"t ever stay here and don't ever book on Italyby

The location in Santa Margherita is the best in the town. If you get a superior room with a large terrace you have the perfect viewing point of sea, town, and hills beyond. It is 8 minutes walk from station but it is up steps which may be a problem if you have heavy luggage - get a taxi.

The rooms are adequate, clean and pleasant but a bit on the small side for the price (but then there is that location) Bathroom is adequate. Terrace was fabulous.
We did go back a second time!

We found the staff friendly and most helpful.

We may well go back at some point.

I have stayed at Hotel Helios twice and thought it was lovely. The rooms are average sized but the balcony at the front is massive ( at least the size of the room again). The staff are wonderful and couldn't do enough to help. They are very good at suggesting day trips; restaurants and local points of interest. The breakfast was lovely: fresh coffee, juices, fruit, pastries and a cold buffet. The rooms are very clean and well equipped although there is not a lot of wardobe space. The location is excellent and the views are outstanding. I would definately recommend this hotel and would stay there again.
