Situation excellent. Staff totally warm, friendly and welcoming. Room we had was very spacious with all facilities. Rooms and public areas were immaculately clean, they had very thorough covid protocols in place. The spa within the Hotel was superb, we would return for the spa alone. Swimming pool and area has everything you can ask for, if the weather is kindly to you. To stretch your legs there is a pedestrian walkway down to Rapallo, and easy 15 mins stroll. Views from the bars and dining rooms are stunning..

On the face of it this hotel is wonderful! Stunning location overlooking the sea and the Rapallo bay - a lovely full length swimming pool too so why only 3/5 you ask? We had a superior room with sea view and balcony which was nice but quite old fashioned and the smallest tv you’ll ever see! Very poor tv channel selection - we had dirty glasses left in our room for 3 days! Breakfast was average - same choice everyday and served on a saucer! A poor food menu at lunch and dinner which made it easy for you to decide to eat in a Rapallo every evening! A nice 20 min walk into town by the coast but cost €15 for a 5 min taxi ride back! The staff were ok - could have been friendlier - this hotel honks it is better than it actually is!

Anyway thanks for the review, we appreciated the subtle irony. Your criticisms help us improve all of our services. Too bad you didn't try our gourmet restaurant on the 6th floor which, together with other 2 restaurants, completes our offer for all tastes. And our magic ERRE SPA with 2000 square meters of weel-being ? And the inifinity pool overloking the sea of the Portofino Coast ? I can't believe you haven't seen and enjoyed them! These 3 points of strength would have led to minimum a 5/5 ....! Yours sincerely. Silvestro De Bolfo - Manager

If you visit Rapallo this is the best hotel to stay. The views are nicer if you take more expensive 4 or 5 floor room. The rooms are very clean and have very small balcony and you cannot sit there (no furniture). Kind and helpfull staff. Breakfast was ok. Hotel is very clean and offers good quality for the 4*. Very nice, big and clean pool with relaxing music. Unfortunatelly noise from the very busy street till late hours and construction work next to the hotel was a downside of my stay as I expected more relaxing stay and to enjoy nice evenings on the balcony. Parking is available.
