We found this delightful hotel through another hotel which was fully booked (it was a Saturday night). The Hotel Minerva surpassed our expectations - it was quiet, spotless, had car parking and was a short distance walk from the main shopping area and port of Santa Margherita Ligure. The room was a little small, but nevertheless, had all the qualities...

We just spent 2+ weeks traveling through France and Italy staying at truly wonderful B&Bs and small hotels. Had a nice time at each but one was exceptional. The Hotel Minerva in Santa Margherita Ligure made the side trip more than worthwhile, it was exceptional. The Hotel is two blocks off the beach and busy streets which adds a nice...

Excellent 3 star hotel: our room (101, 2+2 p) was renovated in a modern style and had a mezzanine for 2 (kids) to sleep on. Price for these extra beds 50+50 a bit high. Balcony view (on the ground floor roof) could have been better. The staff was very friendly and service was just perfect. Modern & stylish steam &...

There are many hotels in this amazing location in Italy. Most are 4 star hotels. The Minerva is a 3 star hotel located about 150 meters from the Marina in a small street. Nice, clean, small but great garden and very smiling people. The breakfast is included and good.

The hotel is up a side road and in a quiet location. The room, although quite small, was adequate for our needs and was clean and well equipped. The bathroom was clean and had everything I needed. Breakfast was good, and there was quite a good choice. The patio area was really pretty and lovely to eat breakfast outside. The...

A little tricky to find as it is at the end of a side lane off the street but a good location close to the centre. Checkin was fine and staff very friendly and helpful especially the young man at breakfast who spoke very good English. You have to give your car keys to reception who park and retrieve your...

Great breakfast everyday!!! We stayed for 3 days in a lovely room that was very clean and tidy with everything you need. Staff were very helpful. Location was average but the hotel price reflects this. Close to good restaurants. Would recommend staying here. Would recommend taxi rather than walking to train station.

This is my first review posted on tripadvisor - we usally book (and therefore review) through a booking website. We booked for three nights direct on the hotel's website www.hotelminerva.eu - a room with balcony was only 10 euros more than a basic room, but a basic room would still give access to the roof terrace (excellent views but limited...
