enjoy the view and the harbor activity.We LOVED our room at the Hotel Helios. Yes, the furnishings are a bit dates, but, the view, the location and the service more than make up for it! It is definitely worth it to spend the money for a large balcony and seaview. We spent mornings and afternoons enjoying the view and harbor...

We originally wanted to stay in Portofino, we are so glad we ended up in Santa Margherita! Monica and Mario were excellent hosts. Our balcony view was spectacular and we could walk to the city center in the evenings. We did tour the entire area while we were there, but every evening we were excited to return to our room...

I was so looking forward to our stay at Hotel Helios and sharing the lovely experience with my husband! The hotel is charming. Heavenly, the view from our room! The large terrace has table, chairs, umbrella and two lounge chairs. Late June/early July the pool temperature was perfect. I had been concerned (it would be too cool) since my last...

The hotel staff was very helpful and allowed me to park my motorcycle in the garage underneath. They gave me a room with a huge terrace and a...

We have just spent a very enjoyable five days at Hotel Helios and are already planning our next visit. Yes the previous comments about the bedrooms are true and you have to be reasonably agile to negotiate the bath, grab handles would help less able visitors, BUT the view from the bedroom and terrace, the staff, especially the two Monicas,...

I went there for an aperitivo with my friends and it was amazing. Good food, beautiful view and if you will sit near the pool with the sunset light it can be once of the most romance places in the World

Booked a large terrace room - amazing views across the beach and town - huge terrace with sun lounges - but room a little small and dated. Bathroom extremely small with a very awkward shower/bath set-up. Walk to everything including train station, lovely pool area but sea water, so quite cold. Very friendly and helpful reception.
