Outside this hotel which is to be found in a strategic location, yards from the sea front, you will find a plaque reminding everyone that Hemingway stated at the hotel almost a century ago. But to be fair to them, the owners of this hotel have a lot more to talk about than an author from yesteryear. Apart from the...

This was my second time staying at Hotel Riviera while staying in Rapallo to visit family locally. Claudio, the hotel owner, and the rest of the staff are very kind and accommodating and will go out of their way to make sure you have a good stay. The rooms are a good size for European hotel room and very clean....

We stayed here one night to see the area and to travel into Portofino from the sea. Very nice room with an associated restaurant. Staff was wonderful and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Not too far of a walk from the train station. To go to Portofino via a ferry boat is easy access from the hotel. Walk to...

I hope to return to this lovely hotel run by a charming family who were helpful, courteous and friendly at all times. The rooms with a seaview were stunning. The location was perfect just across the road from the sea and a footstep away from the heart of the town. We had dinner in the restaurant one evening and it...

The rooms were very small and tight. Window in the bathroom was loose and falling. The bed was a single bed which was way too small while the mattress was uncomfortable. The location was close to the beach and some restaurants but also very loud at night with loud music coming from some of the bars.

Perfect position, comfortable, clean room and bathroom. Excellent breakfast and service. Two small problems: fridge didn't work and temperatures were high and second, the WIFI was very patchy and my poor husband had to sit almost in the bath to get a signal. Apart from that loved everything and adored Rapallo!

We had a 2 night stay in the Riviera. We were delighted with our room which was very modern with a balcony giving a side view to the sea. The hotel staff were very welcoming and very helpful. There is free wifi in the hotel. Breakfast was modest but sufficient.

Just home after a month in Italy. I'd driven from the U.K and Hotel Riviera was an overnight stop. It was magical- I loved all of it. The view from our room was exceptional. We'd upgraded to a 'sea view' after initially booking a 'partial sea view.' and were not disappointed. We were so glad we did. All the staff...
