A lovely hotel in a nice neighbourhood. Excellent service from the hotel staff who did could not have done more to ensure I had comfortable stay. The hotel is a good 15 mins walk from the station, but close to restaurants.

Santa Margherita was a lovely city. Gorgeous waterfront. And Minerva's in a quiet neighborhood. Franco and rest of staff were wonderful and gave us access to the computer. The breakfast was amazing and by far the best we experienced at any of our stays in Italy. The reason for the low rating on quietness had to do with the renovations that were going on on the roof. Soon there will be a grand new swimming pool and a view to be very excited about. And we'd love to come back after that's completed. Wish it had been when we visited. But just a great boutique-type hotel. The hike to Portofino was quite a climb but views were worth it. Thank you to the staff for your fine hospitality. Sherry and Tom

My Husband and I were planning on traveling in the area and our son recommended staying in the town of Santa Margherita Ligure for the charming and we'll established area along with being close to the Cinque Terre. Our search came up with the Minerva Hotel and we really enjoyed to property. It is off the main road and a little tricky to find but well worth the extra steps. the room had a lovely balcony where we would enjoy a glass of wine before dinner and visit about our day. Breakfast at the hotel is not to be missed! The variety and quality was wonderful for all the guests who have different wants and needs for their breakfast. We had never been to Santa Margherita Ligure and would definitely come back and stay with the property again.

Perfect location a few steps from marina in Santa Margarita with its restaurants and bars. The room was lovely with a full complement of mirrors, high standard of bathroom fittings [eg. shower with proper closing door and its own light]. Balcony with view of the hills above the town, across which we climbed one day on a lovely trail to Portofino. There is a roof terrace to sunbathe on, also with good views. Breakfast was delicious, with access to terrace. Finding the hotel is easy, well signposted from Rapallo and note that garage security is very organised which means remembering everything you wish to take out of the car while the concierge waits to lock up again. The staff were extremely helpful at all times and this hotel is very good value for a generally expensive area.

An excellent hotel for three star. Clean, comfortable and friendly, with a good buffet breakfast,served in a delightful garden. Not overlooking the sea, but very quiet, cosidering it was close to the front and town centre. Near to start of lovely footpath into the Portofino National Park, but not so handy for beaches.

The hotel was OK but the furnishings were cheap, plastic and generally uncomfortable. The restaurant offered a very limited selection. The cleaning staff didn't restock the bathroom with soap, etc. after they were used. The TV service quality was very poor. The TV service was repaired at the end of our stay and the hotel staff did adjust the bill to reflect the poor TV service.

We really liked our stay in Minerva Hotel in Santa Margherita Ligure: a very cozy place with a wonderful garden. We enjoyed long breakfasts in the garden admiring the green beauty around. It seems to be the most silent place in the town... We were really pleased with farewell pastry package we got from the hotel management.

Beautiful room with a balcony looking out onto the town and sea. Friendly, helpful staff. They gave us a discount for an extended stay without us even asking. Great breakfast, lots of yummy choices. Easy to walk to Portofino or the train station to head to Cinque Terre. Would definitely recommend Minerva to anyone traveling to this region of Italy.

Hotel Minerva is lovely hotel located in a quiet neighborhood only 5 minutes walk to the sea. The location is fantastic. The single room I occupied had doors opening to a terrace with a lovely sea view. The hotel was better than I thought it would be based on their website. The staff were accomadating but not overly friendly. I would stay at Hotel Minerva again!

Very nice boutique hotel. Single room very small with with lovely balcony. Shower very very tiny, and I am not a big person. Probably a good value for S. Margherita Ligure because hotels/restaurants in the area are expensive. The location was convenient to the train station and to Portofino. I would stay at Minerva again.

This is a very modern hotel with excellent facilities and a good position. Our room and the rooftop area had beautifull views of the bay. The price was fairly high and the breakfast fairly ordinary unless you paid a supplement for extras, generally these were cooked items. I felt this was a bit of a cheek as breakfast was included in the fairly expensive rate of 148 euros a night.

This hotel was just enough off the main roads to provide a wonderful quiet and relaxing base for visitng the areas. We walked to everything or took a local bus to nearby towns. All rooms with balconys with views of the neighborhood and the water. WE WOULD STAY HERE AGAIN! Other hotel options we considered turned out to be on busy roads and very noisy.

For anyone looking to stay in the Portofino/Cinque Terra region this is a great place to stay. A little pricey, but you get a lot for what you pay including clean rooms, a helpful staff, great breakfast, and incredible vistas. Also, the hotel is a short hike away from Portofino and short train ride (30-40 minutes) away from Cinque Terra.

We came to Minerva from Nice where we stayed at another three star hotel but found Minerva to be superlative both in the service element as well as general beauty of the hotel and the innovative and modern way the family has renovated the property. The family takes such pride in their establishment and are completely detail-oriented and were very skilled in making us feel like we were super V.I.P. guests. The breakfast was great and was served in a lovely garden setting. We would return gladly, and would certainly use Hotel Minerva as a home base for daytripping around the Cinqueterre and Portofino areas. The rooftop terrace was great for enjoying a glass of wine while watching the light fade away from the bay of Tigullio and the surrounding coastal hills. Really a stellar experience.

Given it was high season (earl Aug), prices weren't going to be cheap, but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Minerva. We didn't spend lots of time at the hotel, so it met our needs in terms of location, quality etc. The best part of all was the service from the team at Minerva.....very helpful and friendly.

We had a lovely few days at the Hotel - the staff were very courteous, helpful and thoughtful. The room was spacious and very comfortable. The common areas were very funky and modern which really appealed to us. The only gripe was that there was little variety in the continental breakfast compared to other 3 star hotels we had stayed at, so the brekky became a bit boring after the third day. Other than that, could not fault the convenient, quiet location and comfortable accomodation.

Despite warnings about the curtness of italien proprieters I found the owner/manager of the hotel very welcoming and extremely helpful. His assistance as a tourist information centre was invaluable. The hotel itself had very good, clean, spacious accomodation and furnished in a fashion expected of a relatively small independent. The car parking, although not indicated on the web site as an extra cost, was essential in a part of Italy where streets are narrow and parking generally impossible.

The Hotel Minerva was excellent from initial reception, when our car was garaged for us, to the end, when I was given a leaving gift of a local panetonne. The room was very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and we had the option to eat out in the very pretty private garden where shade was afforded by the orange and lemon trees which were full of fruit. We did not dine in the hotel, but the menus looked very good. Advice was given on local amenities and prompt help when I had left my credit card at a local restaurant.We went to the hotel following my son`s wedding in Vernasca, Emilia Romagna. It was just right I would heartily recommend this deightful hotel and hope to return to it myself sometime.
