    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Jolanda Santa Margherita Ligure

    Fantastic Hotel


    This hotel is definitely underrated. It was much much better than we had expected. The decor was beautifully Italian - the room was excellent - modern and clean and well furnished. The staff could not have been more helpful especially with local tourist information directions etc.

    The location is about one to two blocks back from the water and is very handy to shops, deli's restaurants etc.

    Santa Margherita is a very good base from which to see that part of Italy and the Hotel Jolanda is a great place to stay.

    Loved it.


    We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in early October 2004 after reading the Tripadvisor reviews. They were all spot on. The hotel is a gem and should be rated 4 star. The staff gave us excellent service and even emailled us taxi and rail advice to get from Genoa to the hotel. The decor is beautiful, the location is ideal and we loved every minute of our stay. P.S. Ask Marina for room 506, costs a couple of Euros more but worth it.

    Pleasant Suprise.


    Selected the Jolanda based upon their website. My impressions are:

    Staff was very pleasant & helpful.

    Room size & furnishings-very good.

    Bath-very good.

    Location-5 minutes to waterfront, quiet area.

    Our traveling companions were given a corner

    double with balcony, where we ate cheese and

    drank wine in the evening.

    Breakfast was very good.

    Public spaces are quite nice and they have a gym.

    Paid 116 Euro/night-cheapest room of our trip. Excellent value for the money.

    Excellent Location


    May 2004. Hotel Jolander is an above average 3 star hotel. Very well situated in Santa Margherita. Good size, which is unusual in Europe, Friendly staff, No Aircon... it was there but like everywhere else in Europe at this time of the year they don't and wont turn it on. The rooms tend to therefore be a bit stuffy. Jolander was nice to open window, quiet V. Convenient, Portofino 5 Km, away, easy by car/bus. Helpful staff/Internet 2 euro 15 min. Standard double bed. OK Bkfst. Car parking 16 euro/day. Bathroom above average on European standards.

    Decent clean relatively chic 3 star at reasonable price


    we stayed here based on a girlfriend's recommendation. we found Santa Margherita a good base from which to explore the Rivieria region. very close to portofino and much more shops/restaurants.

    pictureque fishing village but not much shopping and what was there was expensive...but to the hotel.

    yes it was nicely decorated. nice foyer with interet access (although you have to pay). breakfast ok but nothing to rave about. Our bedroom had a canopy which was nice but was small. bathroom had only a shower.

    room was nice and clean and although and very quiet.

    we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again if in the area. a decent 3 star at a reasonable price

    Something different - great value!


    We stayed at the end of January 2004 and had a great weekend. I liked the look of the pictures of the hotel on the web site and thought it might provide something a little different - it lived up to my expectations.

    The rooms were very nicely furnished, quiet, clean and spacious with some beautiful antique pieces of furniture. The service was excellent - the staff were very helpful and responsive. The continental style breakfast was also very good. The hotel is an easy walk to the beachfront and close to some nice bars, shops and restaurants.

    No problems with the showers - they were hot and there was never any shortage of water. I would agree with the other good reviews.

    Champagne accommodations at Beer Prices - Wonderful


    July 19-23rd, 2003. Our family with 2 young daughters loved our 4th corner suite with tall ceilings, Louis XVI decor and awesome bathroom with Jacuzzi shower. Service was impeccable; front desk staff and dining room staff were most attentive. Our breakfast and dinners were included in our package; very comprehensive and delicious. The rooms were quiet and comfortable; A/C was quiet and effective. Everything in this hotel is freshly renovated. Parking on the street is free in the blue zone!! The bicycle use was free; I travelled the entire town on the bike over several days. I did not mind the 2 block walk to the beach. Great food stores and shopping for clothing and shoes on streets around hotel - where the locals do their shopping. Rated as 3 stars but this is a 4 1/2 star gem. I will return to this best value in a flash.

    Cold showers


    If you like cold showers in Autumn then this is the place for you.

    Staff most unpleasant if you did not dine in their dining room for dinner.

    Best Value near Portofino


    Comments in other review inaccurate -- all rooms are air conditioned, and all have TVs. Have stayed here 4 times. Hotel remodeled and enlarged in 2001 with glamorous new lobby and Internet room for guest use. 2 blocks inland from beach, 1 block from tourist office and the GREAT wine bar -- La Barrique. Easy 10 minute boat access to Portofino and/or Rapallo. Very upscale look, great value. Parking garage (extra charge) across street.

    Very pleasant three star`


    I've stayed there three times and am looking to go back. We drive down from Geneva. The town is far better to stay in than Portofino, which is charming but too small for the evenings. This is only 5km away, so it can even be walked, but there are buses. The hotel is a charming three star. As I recall, there are no televisions or airconditioning, but one shouldn't be watching TV there anywhere. and AC isn't too important there. Lobby is charming, comfortable, and welcoming. CORNER ROOMS are superb. Notmuch of a view, but spacious and as nice as a lovely 4 star. Watch out for the non-corner rooms, because they are a bit small and dark. Renovated bathrooms, as I recall. I plan to return and like it there. 100m from the water and the center, but view obstructed by other buildings. If you can live with that, stay there.

    ... rocks, fishing and swimming. And heaps and heaps of caves and divers. We would constantly just turn off the boat and drift and sit. We are a quiet trio and every now and then one of us would make a comment…. “ this is amazing” or “bloody bewdiful!!!” We cruised in to have a closer look at Rapallo’s Marina which is much bigger than Santa Margherita’s and Portofinos and then back into dock by 6.30.

    It happens every single time. Every time I have that overwhelming feeling that I am really happy, something happens to burst my bubble.

    I was leaving my favorite beach, Paraggi, and decided to catch the bus back. I had on my white shorts and my very stylish, new plastic sandals. Which may sound seriously daggy but they are navy blue, and matched my navy blue t ...

    ... the greenest colour I have ever seen and so clean and fresh. Back in Santa Margherita we sat on the rocks at the town beach and swam and watched the world go by. It was fantastic spending the day with the Kennedys. We are very lucky.

    After a siesta we met at Sabot for a pre dinner drink and 7. There is enough going on at this little bar to write a book about. If I was able to recognize movie stars, I bet there would be one ...

    After departing from Dorothe's, and saying a tearful good bye to Erin at the train station, i at last struck out on my own, headed for the Cinque Terre, along the Tuscan coast. After several hours of train riding, including three train changes! I arrived at Riomaggiore, the first town in the Cinque Terre. From the train station I walked through a long tunnel lined with pretty mosaics and a glowing blue arching ceiling (it was by far the prettiest underground connection tunnel I'v ...
