Excellent hotell for folks on a budget, meaning the price was very reasonable considering the proximity to Portofino proper. Great location and very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was included and was pretty much standard Italian fare. In other words OK, but not great. The room was clean and comfortable and even had its own small balcony. Great food in...

The hotel was fine. I felt too bad that we got a room with the bathroom on the hallway. Even though rooms with a bathroom in the room were all available. (there were no other guests exept for one couple). This was a big minus, if you have to go to the toilet you have to bring a key to...

Recently stayed here with the misses. Although the hotel is clean and the staff are friendly, because of the area it is very over priced for what you get. Miss leading website as you couldn't even see the beach from the hotel. You have to pay an additional £25 to park and the beach also costs. (Depending on the day,...

We stayed at Hotel Argentina for 1 night and had such a lovely stay. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The location is great, right on the beach and so close to Portofino. You can walk into Portofino by a beautiful coastal walk, which is about 10 mins approx. Had dinner in the hotel which was delicious. Highly...

Pros The location is excellent. It is about a 25 minute walk to Portofino. There is also a bus you can take. Hotel Argentina is located right on the corner of the Paraggi Bay which has the best sandy beach in the area. You can give a deposit for beach towel and it will be refunded when you return the...

I spend one night on the hotel. Really nice and I really recommend. The stuff always kind, the beach in front to the hotel, the rooms very clean, quiet, and a good breakfast are included. The private beach is not included in the hotel, but the price is honest. Just 15 minutes walking to portofino and really easy to arrive...

This small hotel is in the idyllic Paraggi Bay near Portofino. The owners are extremely welcoming and everything is provided in the rooms that you could possibly need. Our room had been recently decorated, very tastefully and the air conditioning was really appreciated. Really comfy beds aswell. Parking is close by and is €20 per day but parking is extremely...

The Hotel is located between Portofino and Santa Margherita Ligure. We walked to both. It is closer to Portofino. The hotel is very clean, the rooms are big and was not a problem to have our private bathroom outside the room. We only spent one night on our way to CinqueTerre. Glad we found this hotel.

Santa Margherita is pretty - there is no doubt about that - but with any place this pretty prices fluctuate.. what you see on a website, or on a booking site or even via a telephone call.. are merely a guideline..
