The Ancora Riviera is 200 metres from the beach and city centre. The stylish rooms come with free Wi-Fi, and you have free access to the Marina Sporting Club in front of the hotel.
Score from 231 reviews Excellent
This charming hotel is in the heart of Santa Margherita, just a short bus or boat ride from Portofino. Relax on the sun terrace, which overlooks the beautiful Italian Riviera.
Score from 195 reviews Very good

Offering panoramic views of the Gulf of Tigullio, the Tigullio Royal is a 7-story building on Rapallo's seafront promenade. The ferries for Portofino and the Cinque Terre leave from nearby.
Score from 577 reviews Wonderful
The rooms were furnished with simplicity and good taste. The hotel is well maintained and very clean. It is a few minutes' walk from the sea and a small beach; away from the bustle of Rapallo but only 10 minutes' away from Sta Margarita and its shops and restaurants. The staff were not only professional and helpful, they were genuinly friendly. Our special thanks go to Francesca.
Good location, very clean and spacious room. Helpful friendly staff. Good breakfast menu. Quiet.
No kettle in room. Written "rules" were a bit annoying.
The bed was wonderful. Nice person. Who spoke dutch
I stayed two days and came across 4 shifts of front office staff and they were all terrific and very helpful.
Breakfast was mediocre.
Fabulous location and sea view. The hotel was very, very clean. Reception girls were more then excellent - very professional, helpful and very friendly. The breakfast had a lots of choice, something for everyone. After 2 weeks in this hotel I definitely recommended it to anyone.
Nice view. Great staff, especially Marta! Not too far from Santa Margherita or Rapallo.
Parking a bit tricky. Steep slope.
The service was excellent!
Easy to find and on site parking. Ten minute walk to the ferries. Great views from upper floors.
As many others stated, staff at the reception is simply amazing. They surely get the same questions thousand times a week and yet they remain friendly and patient and can give you good recommendations even if you come unprepared. Location of the hotel between Rapallo and Santa Margherita Ligure couldn't be better with amazing views over the bay. We had a room on the 2nd floor and the view from our balcony was superb. (First floor might be little problematic because of the trees but those rooms have a bigger balcony with more furniture.) You can easily walk to both Rapallo and SML, we even hiked to Portofino which is 4 km away. We had a very pleasant stay and hope we will go back there again. The busy road that was described by many reviewers is really a bit scary but it is really just for 150 metres upwards from the hotel where there is no sidewalk. SML train station only a 15-minute walk away with good connections to Cinque Terre. Don't expect much from the room itself, as it's just a 3-star hotel, it really looks a bit like a hospital, but who cares when you have the beautiful view from your balcony!
Some vegetables for breakfast would be really good as there is nothing. Not even cucumber or tomatoes. Otherwise the selection is ok for a 3-star hotel.
Staff excellent Good breakfast comfortable room Reasonably fast WiFi Bar prices OK
Its a steep hill from the road up to the hotel No pavement for first 300m towards St Margherita (didn't have car)
Room fresh and clean, Bathroom well layout and heaps of towels. Internet actually worked. Staff really friendly. Breakfast very good. Easy to find and in walking distance of most facilities.
No negatives. If you are not into walking, (lazy person) you may find the location not so convenient.
Very helpful and friendly staff who were happy to recommend places to eat and drink and excursions. Amazing location with beautiful views from the balcony, within easy walking distance from Santa Margherita Ligure and a small local beach. The room was very clean and decorated minimally, quite a difference from a lot of similar-priced hotels in that part of Europe! They also make an amazing Aperol spritz!
We liked everything about this hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The entire hotel was very clean. Their continental breakfast was very good. One detail I've never seen before is that they had an egg boiling station so you could make your own hard or soft boiled eggs. The small lounge area was comfortable with books in various languages for guests to read. We loved how quiet it was at night. Since it's situated between Rapallo and Santa Margherita there weren't people walking on the street making noise at all hours of the night. All in all, it was a great hotel experience and we will absolutely stay there again.
There was only one thing that in the end turned out to be a non-issue. As an American I find the beds in Italy to be much too firm or downright hard. The mattress was a bit too firm but somehow I managed to sleep ok. When we checked out we mentioned this little detail to the front desk staff. They told us that they do have spare mattress pads that you can request. I admit I've been stupid all this time since I've never thought about asking for one. Good to know there's that option.
Small hotel within walking distance of Santa Margherita in idyllic location directly across the road from a small but perfectly formed pebble beach of San Michelle. Quiet, clean, minimalist hotel with boutique feel. Bus stop directly outside hotel. A must stay for anyone visiting Santa Margherita or those travelling further to Portofino, Cinque Terre...
The hotel is located on a hill between rapallo and santa margherita with a breathtaking seaside view. Both cities and three nice little beaches are within walking distance. Rooms are rather small but nice, clean and well equipped. Hotel interior is very modern. Reception staff is extremely friendly, patient and helpful with sightseeing advise and local event recommendations - mille grazie!
Hotel parking space at 16 euros fee per day in an area with no alternative cost free appropriate parking possibilities around.. just unneccessarily expensive. Breakfast is OK but the choice of products offered does not fully match the altogether high level of the hotel. WiFi was very weak.
The view!! If travel to L'Approdo ask for rooms in the upper levels. The breakfast is really nice !
The bathroom although is really clean could need a renovation.
Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Special thanks to Francesca, who knows everything and gives us valuable tips for our stay in the area. Very nice view from the terrace. Cleanliness is good.
The triple room in which we were accommodated was very small. Breakfast is monotonous. Wi-fi is very bad. Parking is a problem. There are only 7 parking places for 32 rooms. Overall - not bad hotel, but in any case not for the money we payed.
It was in a very good location with on site car parking. The breakfasts were good with a good choices. Staff very helpful. Views were great from balcony. Would recommend to friends.
The hotel wAs on a very busy road with no pavement near the hotel so couldn't walk into Sta. Margarita Ligure.
- Modern, stylish rooms - Large balcony - Friendly, helpful staff - Buffet breakfast with large range of different foods - Great location - walking distance to both Rapallo and Santa Margherita - Close to lovely, small beach
Wifi in room not very good
All is about to be perfect.
Very unpleasant and dangerous part on the way to the neighbor town Santa Margherita.
clean frequent change of bed linen and decent breakfast
expensive for 3 star hotel
The hotel is very clean and efficiently run by personable staff who are all multi-lingual.
The walk into town is a little perilous as there is no pedestrian path and it's narrow so be prepared for a duel with the traffic.
Great location and friendly staff. Hotel is short walk from the centre of Santa Margarita and equally to Rapallo. We upgraded to a superior room with fantastic view. Breakfast is good with great variety of fruits, pastries, juices and coffees.
The housekeepers shoved all of our belongings to one corner. We were told that they only did their job. No other hotel has this kind of "housekeeping". We asked for 30min late checkout but it wasn't possible although their checkin time is 15:00.
Location was perfect, only 10 mins walkj from train station (you don't need a taxi). And just 500 metres from a beautiful natural beach on one side of the church and the other a lovely restaurant, right on the sea front...perfect
