There are things to like about the Grand Hotel Bristol: it has a spectacular view and a good location, I found the bed comfortable and the shower effective. But the positives are balanced by one major flaw: no hotel that awards itself the soubriquet 'grand' should be charging extra for internet access in the 21st century. I haven't stayed in...

Beautiful rooms with sea view, staff helpful and polite. Breakfast the best we have had any where with impeccable service. Drinks and food in hotel very expensive but then the whole area is. Nice walk downhill into Rapallo but hard work back up in the heat. Probably best suited to couples although we travelled with my 13 year old son...

We stayed here for a week booked through voyage Prive which included a 3 course dinner in the hotel restaurant. Standard of accommodation, quality of service were all what we would expect from a hotel of this type. We had a deluxe double room with sea view. The view across the bay was spectacular by day and night. Yes, the...

The Grand Hotel Bistro is a wonderful hotel. We booked through Great Value Vacations and were very pleased. The staff is friendly. Breakfast was a definite highlight with wonderful views and Prosecco every morning. The restaurant is a little pricey but really good with excellent staff. It's a good option if the weather is bad. The hotel is about a...

We booked a 3 night stay with Voyage Prive and was pleasantly surprised just how lovely the hotel was having read some negative reviews. We stayed in a deluxe room with sea view. There was a small balcony with beautiful views across the bay. The room itself was large, clean, spacious and well equipped just watch out for the Mosquitos...

Unlike previous reviewers who focus on a 150-year-old railway line and the trains that run upon it, a crane on private land and mosquitoes that are somehow the hotel's responsibility, I would like to focus on what is within the scope of this establishment and which, in my opinion, is done well. The hotel is extremely well-situated with a wonderful...

Myself and my husband spent our mini moon in this hotel and had a lovely time. It’s about a 10-15 minute walk from what you would consider to be the centre of Rapallo. It’s a beautiful little town with lots of fantastic bars and restaurants and quite a few shops. In terms of visiting as a tourist, there isn’t a...

We had booked a "De Luxe Room with seaview and balcony." The room we were given ( not taken to and no sign of a porter ) was scruffy with faded decor and damaged surfaces. It was also very warm ( 29 degrees) An attempt to turn on the air conditioning proved useless due to a damaged control. The bed...

If you wish to visit the Ligurian Coast I would recommend Rapallo which is a beautiful town which is very well located for exploring. The Hotel Bristol is within a 12 minute walk along a coastal path to the town. It is located on a bit of an incline giving you fabulous views of Rapallo, Santa Margherita and Portofino. The...
