Reviewed 16 October 2013

After a 5 day trip around Italy, our last night was at Rapallo at this hotel. It was a splash of luxury for an otherwise budget-limited holiday. But it didn't break our bank. It was a beautiful hotel, clean, friendly, the food was incredible and the restaurant staff were the friendliest we had encountered all holiday. They spoke to us in friendly Italian and never once tried to speak English - which for us was a bonus as we were trying hard to improve our Italian! Nothing was too much for the staff here. I wish we had stayed longer!

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. The location is ideal because it is slightly off the sea promenade where there are often too many noisy tourists. We still enjoyed the view of the sea and the Castillo, a ruin at the beach, from our hotel window. The room was clean and large enough. The breakfast was fresh and rich. The hotel building is a kind of 18th century Italian style in pink but it is rather modern and minimalistic inside of the hotel, with some nice pieces of modern art. The people at the hotel were all kind and helpful and spoke good English. It is also worth mentioning the fact that the Rapallo railway station is only 6 minutes on foot from the hotel, which is convenient for visiting Cinque Terre villages and for our return trip to Milano.

Room Tip: there are no rooms directly facing the sea at this hotel. The rooms facing the road can be noisy but...

A fantastic holiday was enjoyed by my wife and i in rapallo and surrounding area. the hotel was 2 minutes from the railway station and waterfront. the a greeting on arrival was almost overwhelming. The staff were so friendly and couldnt do more to make our stay so enjoyable.The rooms were spacious, well appointed and spotlessly clean.
a very comprehensive breakfast was served each morning.
a pleasant garden for relaxing and having a drink rounded off the experience.
one of the best and friendliest hotels we have stayed in.
Only disappointment was that there was no awimming pool.

Room Tip: Although near the station the front facing rooms afford a side sea view and not to noisy.

The hotel was clean and stylish although in my opinion the rooms did not quite match the lobby in style and were slightly tired. The location was excellent - right next to the hub of restaurants and close to the beach. We didn't eat in the hotel restaurant but the food looked excellent.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room, as the rooms at the back look on to concrete.

The location of this hotel is excellent! Right on the sea..
Rapallo is a good place to stay if you want to visit Cinque Terra, Portofino etc.
However... the service sucks! We did not have water in the bathroom. When asked.. the explanation given was "All our guest are taking a shower, so there is no pressure" BRILLIANT!!
Breakfast is below average!
All in all.. It was worth staying at the Europa ONLY because of its location...
Right on the sea, 5 mins walk from the train station...

Room Tip: Rooms with the sea view (slightly expensive)

Maybe it's the Italian way, in seaside resorts, but found that the service was the biggest let-down at this hotel. Location was perfect though, so helped to redeem it a little. Rooms are adequate and clean. We only stayed for one night and this was probably enough.
