The room is on the 4th floor so we have a pretty good view of the town. Train tracks run right behind the hotel, but there is practically no noise. There is a sundeck on the top floor with great views. Anyway, the room is clean with comfy bed. A/C works once you figure out how to turn it on!... More

There is only limited parking in front of the hotel. If you miss this, you only pay quite a modest fee to use the hotel car park. Unfortunately we were only here for an evening and the night. In spite of the hotel giving a slightly impersonal look from the outside, the staff are friendly and helpful, and most if... More

We stayed here for one night. We arrived in the morning and our room was already done and ready for us. in the hotel you can buy tickets for turistic ferries to go Portofino and San Fruttuoso. Breakfast costs 5€ each person if is not included in the offer. Walls are very thin, we can hear everything, train included.

We chose this hotel for its seafront location but our expectations were surpassed because of the staff, facilities and food. The rooms were spacious with comfortable beds, sea views, free safes and ample storage space. The bathrooms were excellent too with good showers and generous size towels. Everything was spotlessly clean and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for... More

Chiavari is an excellent place to go for a taste of the real Italian way of life, and the SantaMaria suited our party of six British Italophile grannies very well indeed. Directly opposite the lido with its three pools, access to the Mediterranean, and café, all our rooms had sea views, most had balconies, and all had en suite bathrooms... More

When we arrived at the hotel, we could park right in front, as there are several parking bays provided, very convenient if you have a lot of luggage, as we had.

Chiavari is the perfect location on the Ligurian coast and the Hotel Santa Maria is the perfect place to stay.
