Reviewed 23 August 2011

Beautiful small hotel, tucked away in a fabulous location - short walk up a small hill from the water and shops. Very welcoming and friendly staff who make you feel at home. Internet available and wonderful buffet breakfast in a gorgeous garden setting. Room was small, but lovely, fresh decor. Would definately stay again at Hotel Minerva in beautiful Santa Margherita. Tip: Hotel within walking distance of train station, about 15 minutes or so if you don't mind walking.

The hotel is not located with any ocean view, but then again it was nice and quiet.
We enjoyed the garden where we had breakfast, which was very good!
Nice and modern rooms with a comfortable bed and a nice bathroom.
Helpfull staff and good service:)
Short walk down town with good shopping and dining, and a fine walk to a priceable beach with beachbeds for rent and a taverna:)
Also possibilities for bus or car to Portofino within 20 minutes.

We returned the second time to Hotel Minerva, mainly because of the functional rooms with very good value for the price. The standard rooms with balcony are simply furbished, carpet floor, a small bathroom/shower and minibar. The superior rooms are larger (balcony as well!) and come with wooded floors, overall worth the higher price, if you value it.

Service is friendly and suits a 3*, depending on the staff just basic english is spoken. Valet parking available for a modest daily fee. Breakfast buffet is good - consider you're in Italy, where people usually have an espresso and croissant only.

Location is great! Just a stroll away from the port with plenty of restaurants and bars, a 45 minute footwalk to Portofino, or 15 minutes by boat.

We have stayed here three times. It is a real find. A really good location and a very friendly welcome. We stayed in a superior room this time and thought it was worth the supplement.

Single room on the top floor with sea-view and direct access to the roofpatio. 400m to the yachtharbour. Excellent service, very friendly staff. Not only the room, the whole hotel is beautiful and very clean. Lovely interior, new mattress, almost new bathroom with an excellent shower, fresh towels every day. I had room and breakfast, the breakfast buffet is very rich. Garage is available, and I recommend it, because you won't find a parking space. Friendlyness lives here! I will return to Minerva certainly. The garage is not for free, but it only costs 10€ a day.
