“Great Hotel with sea view”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

Wonderful place! The location is great, at the end of Santa Margherita on the way to Portofino, this allows the hotel to be just a few steps away from the port and downtonw but to keep some quiet of its own. This way the pool, which is just the other side of the street from the sea, is a perfect corner among the blue sky and the green of the perfect garden.
Rooms are clean, well furnished in accordance with the hotel style. The sea view from room n. 118 (a junior suite on the first floor which was an upgrade from a double room) was just wonderful, the sea visible from each of the many windows.
Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was ok, nothing too special but neither disappointing.
Great experience - just a pity it was too short.

Room Tip: Sea views recommended!

I spent last week end in the Grand Hotel in Santa Margerita Ligure near Genova and I would like to suggest to everyone love mediterranean lifestyle to enjoy the great ospitality and food of the Hotel. I also discover when - I was there - that Guglielmo Marconi (inventor of the radio)made his experiments from this site. It fascinated me so much!!!

Room Tip: On the top floor rooms you can enjoy the sound of the sea and a unic panorama

Grand Hotel Miramare is a time capsule. Everything is frozen 40 years a go, is very retro in stile in atmosphere and in clients. If you are around 30 you gonna have a interesting experience, is like you are travel in time and spy your parents. In the walls of the hotel you will still feel the charming love affair of Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh and the lobbies are dominated by the smell of old fashion perfume. Even the hotel beach is vintage , with ads on microphone and sun umbrellas with stripes. So I was circumspect at the beginning, but after I started to enjoy. Is something different and somehow something attractive and romantic. Is like in "Somewhere in Time" movie....

Definitely the place to stay for both SM and Portofino... hotel is located right on the water and only a couple of minutes walk to the centre of SM. Portofino is a quick bus or really enjoyable long walk away.
We loved the old school service and elegance of this hotel. The style is very different to the usual hotels we stay at but gave us a real taste of the traditional Italian style... very, very clean, spacious rooms and bathrooms (the junior suite is very nice with great balcony). Service was impeccable, if not a little quirky.
Did not eat in the restaurant as there are so many options in town, but breakfast was nice and drinks in the bar very enjoyable.
We loved the hotel and considered it great value for money. We considered staying in Portofino at the Splendido but were so happy with our choice to stay here... would definitely return.

Room Tip: water side rooms are more expensive but definitely worth it.

Beautiful and stately hotel located about 3 to 4 miles from Portofino. The staff is welcoming and friendly and can not do enough for their guests. The wi-fi connection is free and even gives the guests a printer to anything they need. Nice touch. We enjoyed a dinner in their dining room which is elegant and the food and service was very good. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the Med. which was wonderful. Worth asking for and enjoying. If this hotel is not a 5 star I do not know what could be added to make it more impressive. It is an easy drive to Portofino, but would not want to drive that road in the dark.

Room Tip: A room with a balcony is wonderful
