Very Classy, very nice place...

The hotel is near town, beautiful building on the hill, a pool and spa near the sea. The restaurant has a full compliment of guys working, uniforms, impeccable, yet welcoming service. The views on the sea are unbeatable. The balcony was perfect. The room is romantic, calm, no kids nearby ;-)

Excellent but could be better

Definitely a five star hotel - service impeccable and very friendly. Standard room very small and not very comfortable - only wooden chairs so that was no luxury! Although the location is beautiful, the hotel is too far from the centre and no shuttle is provided for guests which makes it very expensive - taxis every time you want to go to the centre and back.

Rapallo Hotel Review

This is one exceptional hotel. The staff was great, the location is to die for. A little pricey, but worth every penny. Take a taxi or bus to nearby Portofino. Worth it!
