“Great Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2009

I stayed in Santa Margherita for a long weekend and had a great time the staff were friendly and helpful the restaurant was ideal with great prompt service. My room was clean and well maintained and as I was on the fourth floor I was right next to the veranda with a great view over Santa Margherita.

Room 405 on the top floor was perfect for 4 nights in late May. Staff all very helpful and a good breakfast in the garden to start the day. Santa Margherita is a delightful spot and the best choice on this part of the coast. Would definitely choose the Minerva again. For golfers nearby Rapalllo is one of the most beautiful courses we have played.

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Minerva with her parents for 7 days in September. The hotel is kept in almost perfect condition. The rooms are bright and modern with comfortable beds. The family that runs the hotel are very nice, as were all of the staff. The breakfast provided each day is delicious and the outdoor dining area is lovely. It borders on insanity to see the one star review on this hotel from some lady, who clearly must have been smoking crack whilst staying there. It is a shame all hotels could not be of the standard of Hotel Minerva. The only place to stay in Santa Margherita.

I first discovered the hotel Minerva a few years ago when i was holidaying with some girlfriends. We found it purely by accident, and it turned out to be the highlight of our holiday. I now stay there as often as i can, but unfortunately that's not often enough.
It's a great place, set far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the town center yet easily within walking distance of all the bars and shops.
Every time i stay i see a different bedroom, each with it's own character, and all of them bright, airy and clean.
The staff are always friendly and chatty and i genuinely can't wait to return.

Located on a quiet street a few blocks from the seaside promenade, this is a wonderful hotel. We thought that the Euro 122 per night (including breakfast) that we paid was a bargain.

The rooms are spotless, all of the furnishings are in great shape, and all of the equipment works. Importantly for summer visitors, the air conditioning is very efficeint. Internet access is available for a nominal charge.

We had a room with a small balcony that was charming.

The staff is very attentive and helpful.

The breakfast is delicious.

There is an excellent restaurant, Il Faro, about a block away. Ask for the Evergreen Menu.

We stayed 3 nights and would definitely go back if we return to this part of Italy.
