From the time you are initially greeted by the porter until you check our you know you are in a first class very professionally run hotel. The friendliness of all the staff and their care with the smallest detail to make your stay memorable helps puts this hotel in the very highest category.
We very much enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was very conveniently situated for walking into Portofino. The staff were excellent and the food delicious. I would definitely recommend the restaurant.
My only 2 criticisms were:
no tea and coffee making facilities in the room.
very little comfortable sitting area/lounge to have a tea or coffee
as the weather was not terribly good for part of our stay.
Apart from this, we were happy.
"Four perfect nights at a perfect place for our nee"
Great location in Santa Margherita. Close enough to walk to everything but away from the hustle and bustle of some busier locations. Terrific and helpful staff--full ,of information and suggestions and info on bus, train, boat schedules.
"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)

I stayed here for 2 nights on 29th September with my friend.
We had no difficulty finding the hotel just a 5min walk from the station, the hotel location was excellent being right on the sea-front.
The hotel staff were really friendly and helpful on our arrival, we paid extra for a sea view and it was well worth it the views were outstanding, breakfast was very nice with a good selection.
They were plenty of restaurant's near by.
If I was to say anything negative about this hotel I would say that the hotel is a little dated and could do with some renovation, apart from that I really enjoyed my stay there, and would definitely recommend it.

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.
Recommendations for restaurant: Taverna del Marinaio - near the waterfront: $$$

The Lido has a quaint charm and comfort about it. It was more comfy and warm than luxurious, but that seemed more appropriate to the locale. We had the most amazing view from room 401. A corner suite with four big windows to open to the gentle sea breeze. I guess for longer stays, there was even a small kitchenette. Staff was courteous. Breakfast was average. The view was the most spectacular and will forever be my favorite anywhere...it was heavenly.
