Hotel Nuova Riviera, an Art Nouveau villa surrounded by a garden, is located in a private street only a few steps from the sea and the center of the town of Santa Margherita.
Score from 88 reviews Excellent
An elegant, 19th-century villa, lush gardens, a private beach, and a spectacular view across the bay; these are just some of the reasons to choose Imperiale Palace Hotel.

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 198 reviews Very good
The hotel foyer is beautiful. My room had a nice view of the bay.
A bit far from the centre for a solo woman traveler. I caught a cab back a couple of times in the night.
Staff friendly and helpful and facilities clean and spacious
Need a car or public transport as hotel is away from main attractions and uphill to get to
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.
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 castle and grounds that the hotel occupies
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
To be in a castle!
Old castle, great exploration and views from the tower upstairs! Also good breakfast.
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.
Beautiful historic building, friendly staff, great value
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.
Very special place with a unique atmosphere and excellent view. Highly recommended.
Location - loved the walk to town View from the room was great The rooms are very spacious and have a grand old world appearance.
Train noise - although didn't bother us too much
i liked how the hotel looks from the outside and the food is great
i didnt like how the furniture is very old, you can still have an old look ( vintage look) with new furniture
Taxi dropped us at property entrance - had to drag cases up steep driveway and then carry them up 2 flights of stairs.
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
Be careful of steep narrow access when driving in!
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
Spacious, clean rooms Nice terras on top with fantastic view
Railway close by. Noise!
A very charming place with nice staff and an amazing view over Santa Margherita bay from the hotel solarium!!
Parking slot very vert small but free.
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.
Very interesting place. Liked the roof top terrace - great view. Nice place.
Bed was slightly squeaky in our room but slept fine! Steep driveway - we parked at the bottom.
Views / sun terrace Decent breakfast spread Clean Friendly Staff
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.
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
I had to leave after just two nights stay.
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 )
nothing it was perfect.
The hotel is very beautiful. The grounds are breathtaking. Overall, our room was very clean and charming but a bit small for two people with luggage.
The hotel is about 10 minutes from the city center and it is a steep walk. Although we didn't mind the exercise I believe elderly people might have an issue with it. There is only wifi in the common areas - not the rooms. The AC doesn't get very cool.
