The hotel is perfect! Excellent location and service. Also I would like to ephasize that the staff is extremly helpful and especially many thanks to William! The restaurant of the hotel is the best in the area with the delicious meal and live music! Very positive emotions as a result of our stay in this hotel and we definitly recommend it to everyone!
Perfect central location in Rapallo, just right for an overnight stop returning from Siena en route to France. Evening meal on the terrace unexpectedly good.
The garage below the hotel is awkward for some drivers - my car was bruised on the front bumper by someone's black vehicle, after I bumped the back myself!
Hotel was in an amazing location in the town of Rapallo. Just steps away from the castle and promenade with the water taxi to take you to Portofino. Rooms were beautifully designed and very clean. The hotel offered parking which was great since there is no where to park in the town of Rapallo with a large car. Quite difficult to get in and out of, plus parking spaces very small, but still a great benefit. Wonderful weekend break and hope to return.
The only downside was they did not offer free WiFi.
All the staff was extremly nice and helpful. The Food was excellent and so were the wines. The rooms are very nicely furnished and the design of the hall and the bar is very chic.
It was an easy walk from the train station, right across from the sea. I walked everywhere. They had a nice assortment of free snacks at cocktail hour. The included breakfast buffet was one of the best ever. I sat outside on the terrace fir all meals...lovely!
I knew this when I booked the hotel, but I wish they had a pool. After traveling all day by train, I just wanted to take a dip.
Great location, easy to find.
Wi-fi is advertised as free throughout the hotel but this entails visiting the reception desk to obtain a login code which is good for one hour only, so not so convenient and would be a pain in the neck for business travellers.
The hotel is very conveniently located near the train station where we travelled to Genova and the Cinque Terre for day trips respectively. Rapallo is a pleasant town with a lot of good restaruant serving seafood. Even though, we had dinner at this hotel for 2 nights during our 3 nights' stay. Food was wonderful and staff serving were very caring. Also, the hotel provide free wifi access, though only 1 hour per day (additional hours would be charged, but we were on holiday, one hour free was sufficient).
Hotel quite confortable, with a perfect position for visiting Tigullio area, close to the sea and Rapallo downtown. We would also to mention the restaurant, good quality and acceptable prices.
There is a very nice spa area and a good restaurant.The hotel is newly renovated and gives a very good impression.
The biggest disatvantage for the hotel is the missing access to the beach without having to pay approx. EUR 30 per day.The fitness is there however very small.
We thought that overall it was good value. Couple of minutes walk from the train station, good size rooms, clean, and well located in the centre of town. The breakfast is fairly standard fare; we enjoyed the dinner we had and it was well priced - definitely better than the tourist spots along the water-front if you are dining out. I would stay again but I wouldn't make it an automatic choice.
Our experience would have been much better had the staff been more service orientated. Friendliness wasn't an issue but the front desk was under-staffed, having to wait around while they answered the phone as opposed to looking after guests is unacceptable, especially at the busy time in the morning when guests are checking out. In general, poor service plagued us everywhere in Italy so I couldn't say they were worse than what we found overall.
good location, good breakfast and excelent spa
nice 4 stars hotel in a very fair price!
great location, everything is just around the corner, the seaside is 100m away. + underground parking-though, very small, but still ok. good breakfast.
there were ants in the room, on the bed, etc. scary. during breakfast the waiter didnt allow us to sit under sunshade, because the table was meant for 5 people, but we were only 2, needless to say, that no-one came and sat at that table, but we were sitting under direct sun.
No thanks.... Wrong hotel, wrong staff, no sea
It was clean, offered breakfast and was near the water.
The woman who checked us in wanted to retain our passports for "about an hour". We had traveled throughout Italy for over 2 weeks and never had anyone ask to retain our passports. When we indicated we were not comfortable with that, she became very rude and for the length of our stay, was very unpleasant to us each time. She needs to find a new job!
