“Good view, but that's all”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

There were only three good things about this hotel. The view (which was more than good, it wss incredible), the bed was very comfortable, and the breakfast was very good for an Italian breakfast (what is with the sweet cakes at breakfast). But this hotel was built in 1956 and it shows. The architectural style is awful, and although the rooms had been refurbished, the whole place was tired. The balcony was rusty and it looked dangerous to be standing upon. The lift to the bedroom floors dropped 6 inches when you got in and shuddered all the way up. The lift from ground level to the hotel entrance broke down and stuck with the doors open. They had obviously redone the romm recently (it smelt of paint), but it was very basic. There was no mirror in the bedroom, only one in the bathroom, there was only one power point in the room, the shower was tiny. The room was very noisy. We could hear people pacing back and forth upstairs, hear someone coughing, toilets flushing next door, and someone blowing their nose (frequently) who sounded like a trumpet player. The internet was unreliable and slow. I cannot recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Only stay here if you have a room with a view

Nice clean hotel, with a fresh modern look on the inside. Some rooms are still in need of the refurb but overall it was good value for money with friendly staff. The pool area is lovely with a view of the sea.

This hotel is pricey at 150 euro per night but is very shabby and badly in need of a lot of work. The elevator to the car park didn't work for two days, the wifi was very poor, the toilet wouldn't flush properly and the rooms seemed to have to soundproofing between them whatsoever.

I couldn't ask for better. I arrived a couple days earlier than my group and found this hotel to be in my price range and have to say it was worth every penny. I was in a single room top floor with a beautiful view of the sea. A dip in the salt water pool was just what I needed after hours of travel and the hiking and exploring I did the next day. Breakfast was plentiful...fresh fruit, yogurt, torts and hot entrees. After meeting up with my group and staying in town, I have to say I missed the quiet of this hotel (and the salt water pool). I do intend to stay her again any time I'm visiting the Ligurian Coast. The staff and front desk were very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Top 2 floors facing the sea.

My wife and I spent one week in the beginning of May 2014 at the Park Hotel Suisse.The spacious pool and the entire sundeck were closed during my entire stay, eight days. There was a power cut and the wake-up call system did not work. The staff was welcoming however. The bathtub shower system in our room, 638, was "medieval". The hotel is situated practically spot on in Santa Margherita.

This once was probably a good hotel...but now it is a lottery and no way to tell if you will end up in a good or terrible room. The reception is nice as long as you don't have any requests. The breakfast was poor considering the price. Lots of pastries and cheese but no way you can make a healthy meal. The room was at firs sight ok, but after closer inspection had filth all over and next doors they were renovating the room so there were contractors walking around and noise during the day. The location of the hotel is good and it gives good access to everything. Another annoying thing was the parking, they charge 15€ per day for something you can't really call a parking lot... There are better places to stay when here... The room our friends got was even worst...

Room Tip: Ask for renovated rooms with balcony and good bathrooms.
