Hotel Rapallo

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We were in Tuscany for 10 nights, stayed in 6 places, and this was by far the smallest room. When I say small, I mean there was about 4 feet between the bed and 3 of the walls. There was no place to put away clothes so we had to live out of our suitcases. The bathroom was also very small. The people here were great. The breakfast had a large selection and was delicious.

Stayed in for 3 nights.The hotel was excellent. Staff very friendly and helpful. The night porter being extremely helpful when we asked for a glass of wine after 8.00pm also brought coffee sachets to our room after we ran out. The breakfast was very good and the complimentary afternoon tea very much appreciated Located near to all the major attractions. Would definitely return here if in Florence

Friendly, helpful staff. Great location for exploring Florence, close to restaurants and bars and also bus and train station for exploring further afield. Continental breakfast super. Complimentary afternoon tea was a real bonus.

Hotel was nearby the center of Florence and you could walk to most sights. Staff was very friendly and welcome was great!! Good hotel. Breakfast could be more extensive but was fine for a couple of days. Afternoon tea was great!

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and the experience we had was brilliant . The staff were so friendly and so helpful, the rooms wer beautiful and the location was great too. Definitely recommend it.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Rapallo in April, 2017. Lorenzo and Regina made us feel right at home, and they had excellent suggestions for dinner each night. The breakfast buffet each morning had a good selection and was very tasty. The hotel is well situation for quick access to the train station, and it’s also a short walk from some of the city’s main tourist attractions. I would definitely stay here again the next time I’m in Florence.

A beautiful boutique hotel, very central and the staff were excellent, helpful and knowledgeable. Complimentary afternoon tea every day is a very nice touch. Tea and coffee facilities in the room and complimentary toiletries. Will definitely be back!

My wife treated me to a few days in Florence and picked this hotel. I can't fault the place. From the minute we arrived we felt really welcomed and the staff couldn't do enough. Anything we asked for or were not sure about was seen to promptly and with real professionalism. It also has a great location only a short walk from the main attractions.

This hotel was great. Started with great service by Lorenzo and the welcoming staff who were very accommodating and helpful. Rooms were small but very clean and immaculate. Our friends had a double balcony which I would want next time we visit but the service and room was great and the breakfast buffet was superb and had a lot of food offerings. Very happy with our stay here and would highly recommend.

First off I have to compliment the wonderful staff always helpful and knowledgeable. Hats off to Lorenzo who made it his duty to make our stay a wonderful one. Great service and he was a pleasure to speak with daily with recommendations and suggestions to make our time in Florence great! We would definitely stay here again but woukd like a balcony room like our friends had during our 3 night stay.
