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 630 reviews Very good
I guess this goes back to the trusting of other people... but the keys where hung in the public lobby when you went out of the hotel (for everyone to grab) so, we took the keys with us.... WiFi was weak in our room and had to move to the lobby a few times.
Great hotel, solid breakfast, modern bathroom, good beds and very quiet AC's Great view from the hotel with a tanning roof that provides that view as well. Overall great experience. Keep in mind if you walk to town back and forth, you have to climb some steep hills :-)
A bit far from the centre for a solo woman traveler. I caught a cab back a couple of times in the night.
The hotel foyer is beautiful. My room had a nice view of the bay.
Need a car or public transport as hotel is away from main attractions and uphill to get to
Staff friendly and helpful and facilities clean and spacious
The person that does the check out on the morning ( I think that is the owner) is a disappointment compared with check in. The bed could be better. If you sleep with the window open the train in early morning can be a problem.
The welcoming ( check in) was very good. The hotel is exactly like the pictures show. Very good place to visit the city center and to go to Portofino.
Trains passing by below hotel all night and church bells (3 or 4) every half past and on the hour! Hard uncomfortable pillows. No wifi in our room 26, too far to reach source
The castle and grounds that the hotel occupies
To be in a castle!
Location was far away from downtown - you probably want a car if walking uphill isn't something you prefer. Also the bathrooms are very poorly lit. Rooms could use a bit of a makeover with more artwork and design.
Old castle, great exploration and views from the tower upstairs! Also good breakfast.
Guests need to be well informed of what to expect upon arrival and parking. The driveway is very steep, narrow switchbacks often crowded with other guests' cars. Damage to, or disablement of your car is a challenge to avoid.
Beautiful historic building, friendly staff, great value
Very special place with a unique atmosphere and excellent view. Highly recommended.
Train noise - although didn't bother us too much
Location - loved the walk to town View from the room was great The rooms are very spacious and have a grand old world appearance.
i didnt like how the furniture is very old, you can still have an old look ( vintage look) with new furniture
i liked how the hotel looks from the outside and the food is great
Taxi dropped us at property entrance - had to drag cases up steep driveway and then carry them up 2 flights of stairs.
Be careful of steep narrow access when driving in!
Pleasant hotel with a private house feel! Comfortable rooms with AC. Adequate buffet breakfast with fresh cold only selections. Good parking on site. Nice walk to town and beach though uphill on return
The hotel is really beautiful. It's like living in a castle belonging to another era. Quite picturesque and atmospheric, I would say. The room was spacious, comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. Breakfast was delicious. The free -and safe- parking is definitely a plus.
I had a lovely stay at hotel la vela-castello. The location wasn't exactly in the middle of town, but was only a short walk up a small hill and allows an escape from the busyness of the town. Santa margherita was the most beautiful location and I would highly recommend the walk to portofino which offers magnificent views along the waters edge with opportunities to swim along the way. The hotel was clean and tidy and I would recommend it to others who are searching for a cheaper accomodation option in Santa margherita
Railway close by. Noise!
Spacious, clean rooms Nice terras on top with fantastic view
Parking slot very vert small but free.
A very charming place with nice staff and an amazing view over Santa Margherita bay from the hotel solarium!!
Elegant, classical hotel Helpful staff Parking ( though a bit scary getting up the driveway) Good breakfast Easy walk into town Spotlessly clean Comfortable Stunning grounds and views
Splendid.loved the location the views and authenticity. Will return when Posible.
Bed was slightly squeaky in our room but slept fine! Steep driveway - we parked at the bottom.
Very interesting place. Liked the roof top terrace - great view. Nice place.
No wifi in room Difficult on site parking (we parked on the main road as no space) Small room / basic for price Had to walk along main road round sharp bends to town.
Views / sun terrace Decent breakfast spread Clean Friendly Staff
I had to leave after just two nights stay.
It was a wonderful place located just a 15 minute walk up the hill from the ocean and main town. They had a nice breakfast in the morning
nothing it was perfect.
the charm and comfort of the castello ,the large room at the top with the most expansive and wonderful view of Santa Margherita and the sea.The peaceful setting away from the bustle of the waterfront,the obliging staff and management ( they took care of parking the car ,what a relief )
