Researched a few hotels and glad we picked this one. Grounds are beautiful and rooms are very clean. Hotel is right on the water. Breakfast was very good. The hotel Continental next store looks nice as well. However, it's higher above the water so a longer walk to the water from the hotel room.

We met our family from London in Santa Margherita for 4 nights. With no children on this trip, it was important to have a good location and comfortable quarters.
The Santa Margherita Palace was perfect. They accommodate parking. There is a pleasant outdoor sitting area with couches to meet. There is another location inside the lobby to meet before you leave for the day.
The staff is very professional and helpful. There is a very ample breakfast selection and bar. The room that we had (304) was great with lots of room and a small table with chairs. There were sufficient storage for clothes. There is a mini-bar with good choices.
The main bathroom is a good size. The only drawback was that the shower required contortions for a tall, big American. If the door open out instead of in, it would have been easier.
Hotel is located just two blocks from the water and a short walk to banks, boats to Portofino and beyond to other sites. The nearby Hotel Helios has a private deck with pool and sea swimming plus chairs/chaise for $25 Euros. There is a public beach next to it.

"At the Water Front, Center of Strip. Perfect Spot"
This hotel is in the Perfect location, Centered on the Portofino strip. The staff were courteous and friendly. Room was beautiful containing every amenity imaginable. My wife and I enjoyed the terrace overlooking the port very much. Visitors must try the restaurant next door it is amazing. Staff will arrange a Scooter rental to meet you at the hotel for pick up and drop off, ride to Rapallo/ La Spezia (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)

Although very central location near to beach and harbour. The rooms were in serious need of decorating with peeling paint on the windows and generally scruffy appearance. however excellent staff and a great variety at the breakfast buffet.

So glad we stayed here, staff were friendly and helpful and the room was modern and spacious. Beautiful outdoor deck to have breakfast on. The hotel was only a short walk from the train station and is across the street from the piazza so good access to restaurants, shops and the beach. Would stay here again.
A great little hotel that's well worth the money. Off the strip, which is an added bonus, and the rooms are great with nice big bathrooms. Cross the street and walk into the town center. Convenient and quiet (despite the fact it's on a busy street). The walk around the coast to Portofino is an absolute pleasure.

Nice place to visit Portofino and S. Fruttuoso . The beach is front is not so nice, but a few km away the coast becomes gorgeous. You will be at walking distance from S. Margherita (go to the Miami to taste a Spritz and watch people). There is a very good restaurant in the hotel, with excellent staff. Rooms are beautiful and the building has all the character of the old times.
