This is the third time I stayed at the Hotel San Giorgio, and it has become one of my favorite hotels in Italy. Each room is a different size - standard rooms tend to be small- but are all very well-equipped with great mattresses, linen sheets, plush slippers and robes, lots of local stone(slate) in the bathrooms and nice toiletries. Great breakfast with focaccia as well as warm croissants, fresh fruit, cereal, etc, and excellent cappuccino. There are no sea views as it is up the street from the port, but it is quiet and a 2 minute walk to everything, including the 1 euro bus to Santa Margherita! But the best thing of all about this hotel is the wonderful staff that is welcoming, helpful, friendly - it feels like a home rather than a hotel. They will assist you with restaurant recommendations & reservations, park your car, carry your luggage, and while the hotel does not have a restaurant per se, it does offer a limited menu, and they can always make a delicious plate of risotto at dinner. I arrived late after a long journey and they whisked me to my room and offered to bring me something to eat in the room with a glass of wine. They essentially offer 24 hour room service - this is the kind of coddling that is hard to find and it's all done with a smile. Highly recommended!
