Claudio Gambero (Owner) is the type of Italian business person that you were warned about that will lie and cheat to make more money. This included (at the very 1st) trying to give you a lower quality room that is not what you reserved, not providing Air Conditioning (because it is cold at night or broken or, or, or) and turning off the Hot Water Heater to save money. It does not do any good to go down after your cold shower to hear him say it will be hot in 10 Minutes. He also lied about the parking rate in his lot that he quoted 5 Euros per day and charged us 12 Euros per day. You will note that he speaks excellent English until you complain about something and then he says “I do not understand what you are saying….” The location is on a very noisy street so leaving a window open at night is not an option as he decides you should do. The breakfast served will be a minimalist service and does not even include eggs – It was the worst of all “included” breakfast meals we had in Europe.
Be very cautious and understand fully that he will lie to you about whatever suits him especially if he can save Money. Also note that in the picture of the Riviera, the twin building to the left is not part of Riviera Hotel. His attitude and service spoiled our experience in Rapallo and we would suggest other Hotels.
