Loved this place
I stayed 3 nights in room 32, double with balcony. Room was spotless and comfortable. Personally, I like a larger pillow, but, just a preference.
Good AC, & hot shower. Wifi could get a bit busy but for the most part, worked fine.
Steep hill for parking. Be sure to reserve a parking spot, they only have a few.
Close to the ferries. Bus stop across the street. Used it to return from ferry, a steep uphill on return, take the bus, haha.
Breakfast was great. Good coffee and good selection.
Staff were awesome, helpful, polite and just plain ol' nice. Always had a smile.
Wont find a better place!

I rarely rate anywhere this highly but this restaurant deserves it. I have to admit to being confused about how the star system operates in Italy because L'Approdo is head and shoulders above the three star hotel I stayed in before it.
The hotel well situated with sea or garden views from all rooms. It looks smart as you approach it and is well decorated, clean and tidy.
All of the staff are welcoming, cheerful and pleasant and let you know they are interested in you and care about you having a good stay.
The breakfasts, which can be taken in the restaurant or on the terrace, are legendary. The range, quality and quantity of food is first class. I did not need to eat again until dinner!
You can walk to St Margherita, St Michele or Rappallo and the bus to Portofino stops outside the gates.
I thoroughly recommend a stay at L'Approdo. I hope to visit again.

Nice little hotel
We traveled with a group that booked the whole hotel and had a great time. It is a walk uphill (10-15 min) from the train station at Santa Margarita Ligure; there is a sidewalk and only a short section of walking on the roadway; did not try taking the bus. The breakfast was a nice bonus since it was included in our package. The front desk was always very helpful and had maps and timetable printouts. The 24-hr bar was great for us since we could socialize as a group after dinner sitting outside. We got an upgraded top-floor room with a large terrace and a great view; definitely worth the upgrade price. Don't remember hearing any of the noise mentioned in another review, except for the church bells across the street tolling at a reasonable wake-up time. The only negative for us was a safe that takes a key as opposed to an electronic combination; of course the key fell out of my pocket but getting it replaced wasn't a big hassle (beyond paying for a new lock which did seem a bit expensive but not outrageous).

Nice Hotel - Good Base
Hotel L'Approdo is a great base if you are staying on that part of the Ligurian coast. The hotel was spotlessly clean and all the staff were very helpful. Even before we arrived the reservations team took the time to send instructions on how to reach the hotel from the railway station. Tip: If you are arriving at the station with luggage it may be better to take a taxi as the buses are small and can get crowded. Most of the rooms have a balcony with sea view across the bay to Rapallo. I was impressed with the size of the bathroom, there is plenty of room to move around and also a good amount of storage space. At breakfast there is a good selection of meat, cheese, pastries, fruit, yogurt etc and eggs which you boil yourself. There is also a nice terrace where you can have breakfast if the weather is fine. From the hotel it is a 10 min walk into Santa Margherita and 15 min walk into Rapallo. The road outside the hotel is the busy coast road so stay on the red carpeted path and you will be fine. There are a couple of pizzeria/restaurants 3 mins walk away in the direction of Rapallo this is also the nearest beach to the hotel. Both Santa Margerita and Rapallo have a larger selection of restaurants. I would definitely return to this hotel.
