Recent guest reviews

We made a reservation for a double De Luxe room (sea view and balcony) which is one category below suite room. On arrival receptionist was very pushy and wanted us to sell us upgrade to suite room for supplement of 50€. As a Best Western program member we should receive a free upgrade, but not in this hotel. Once we refuse for upgrade lady in reception ignores us. No maps or information was provided. Only laconic answers. Next day morning another lady in reception was friendly and helpful.. Hotel charges 12 € "special" parking price at public parking lot is at front of the hotel, but we pay only 9 € without this discount. Rapallo is a cute and charming town in close proximity to Portofino and Cinque Terre. Location of the hotel was excellent, close to the center and promenade. Our room was nice, clean and fresh. Unfortunately sea view rooms are just above a busy road, so it was very noisy at night. Breakfast was excellent. If not the cold welcoming and attempt to receive additional payment instead of free upgrade, it would be very good stay. It just not Best Western standard.

Fantastic view from the balcony; spacious & clean room; delicious breakfast with local products ; helpful and very friendly staff; we were travelling with a dog and two kids; a perfect stay and we will come back!

Hotel seems to be updated or maintained very well. Modern look and beautiful view from the lounge - good place to have a glass of beer or drink at dawn. Internet connection was enough to use Netflix with easy. Buffet breakfast was quite good. The only problem was the absence of privet parking, big public parking lot is at front of the hotel.

This hotel is new, rooms and bathroom big and nice. sky lounge have amazing view. it’s just alittle bit expensive. 2 drinks 28 euros Location good. Take room with sea view. Don’t get partial view because you will see sea between two buildings

Very nice hotel, completely renovated. Unfortunately the interior designer furnished room an bathroom a little inauspicious, so that the small rooms were even more deprived of space. Beautiful seaview, obliging staff and a sky bar with beautiful view. Breakfast not included, which is curious. Price-performance ratio with the price we paid was not given. The price is driven due to region. Central situation near harbour and busy places, two minutes to old town.

This hotel is in an excellent position in Rapallo, the main promenade, restaurants, bars and the ferry are just literally around the corner. The town centre is also a stones throw away. The hotel is spotless, the staff are all helpful and friendly and all speak excellent English compared to our very poor Italian. The breakfast is fab, everything you could possibly want served in a very attractive breakfast room, with optional outside balcony seating and very friendly staff. Some rooms have sea views and balconies but we had just a basic room which we loved. It was a really good size, nice bathroom, air con etc and who needs a balcony when there is a roof top bar with excellent cocktails and free snacks! The hotel is about a 5 -10 minute walk to the train station from where you can get to the Cinque Terre very easily in about 40 mins and Genoa in around half an hr. Portofino can be reached by ferry, which takes about 30 mins, stopping at Santa Margherita first or the bus takes 20 mins. You can walk the " red carpet" if you wish from Rapallo to Santa Margherita and then on to Portofino, apparently it takes about 90 mins. We walked it to Santa Margherita which took about 40 mins,but took the ferry to Portofino and caught the bus back, the bus also runs quite late which means you can stay for an evening meal in beautiful Portofino if you wish. All in all Rapallo was a fantastic base for us and the hotel was the cherry on top :)

We had a standard double room which was a very good size. The breakfasts were excellent and extremely good value at €6 each per day. The bar on the 8th floor has great views and blankets are provided for when it's a little chilly. The staff were very accommodating and polite. Everywhere was very clean and comfortable. The only negative I have to say is that my parents were offered an upgrade to their room for a 'small fee' for a deluxe room with a sea view....their room was not much bigger than a standard, and the sea was just visible from a gap between the two buildings in front.

Best hotel stay ever. We even got to pick our own room. The people at this hotel are amazing. Everyone went out of their way to help us and make us feel at home. Very clean with beautiful views, especially from the Sky Bar. More details to follow...

This place is across the street from the Bay and commands a great view, especially from their skytop bar. Enjoy drinks and light snacks during happy hour. From check in to check out we were treated with courtesy and respect. There's even a turndown service. It's within walking distance to two public beaches and a pay beach. Many, many fine restaurants abound in the area, take your pick. Highly recommend this hotel when you are visiting Rapallo.

This hotel located across the street from the bay of Rapallo is 5 stars. They start from the reservation process to make your stay as memorable as possible. The staff is non stop friendly and professional. the rooms are spotless and spacious. Checkout was simple and expedient. The view from the roof top Sky Bar is unequaled.
