    Stay in Rapallo

    Very well located hotel. Underground secure parking available at €19 per day. Good breakfast choice. Very clean rooms, quiet and very good aircon. Lovely king size bed. Staff really friendly. no swimming pool other than the small indoor plunge pool in the spa which is FOC but needs to be booked in advance. No good beaches in this area of coastline. They are pebbly and there are very few. You will need to pay the €15 per day to get a sun bed and beach area if you are a sunworshipper.

  • 6.0.Good

    The property was fine and very clean, the staff was very attentive. Location and parking were superb but the bed was horrible, it was two single beds pulled together to make one queen size bed. It came apart during the night almost causing me to fall to the floor.

    Lovely hotel in the center of town

    We stayed there while in town for a friend’s wedding. The location is very central. The staff was very helpful. My only complaint is the hairdryer. It’s more of a hose attached to a wall fixture.

  • 4.0.Fair

    The property and room was “fine”, definitely no frills. The staff was pleasant accept for the head manager who was incredibly rude during our couple interactions and even when passing one another in the hallway of the lobby. The main issue came when we gave them a bag of laundry, maybe a quarter of a machine load. It took 3 days to get back and when we did it was €88. The staff working admitted it was insane. They said they talk to the manager, the rude one. When I got back to the desk the manager wouldn’t discuss it with me, so I paid. Those same items at the four season Hawaii would have been $40. Really bad way to say goodbye to an otherwise really nice trip.
