Great location, very good room, nice family reception !
We had a family room on the first floor that was great - a large balcony to watch the coast ! Excellent location and very good breakfast - they were also kind enough to serve my family even slightly past breakfast time. Definitely recommend !
Besides, Rapallo is an excellent location to explore the Italian Riviera.

Great location, warm people, amazing food and very comfortable rooms...probably the best place we have been in italy! We found it by chance on the walk in front of the sea side and just fell in love with it

We had clients from the USA staying at the Riviera in early October, for 4 nights.
Their experience was incredible. from the fantastic room with two different views of the town and the Mediterranean see, to the courteous and friendly staff, and the pleasant family run atmosphere. Do not forget to eat at the hotel restaurant. It is very good.

We stayed for one night in Rapallo and Riviera was the optimum choise. Walking distance from everything, comfortable room, reasonable price. Staff was helpful and friendly. We could not connect to wifi at all (with iPhone / iPad), the range was OK but no response from the AP.
Breakfast was a OK.

Room Tip: We had a sea view room on 3rd. The palm tree in front of the hotel blocks the view partly. Room was...

Hotel Riviera has a good location in a lively town.
Family run and all the staff were very helpful, including the one from near Bologna!

We received good advice on travelling around.
Boat trip and train travel.

Good quality restaurant.

Compact rooms but all the facilities were good.
Good market on Thursdays.

Room Tip: It is worth paying the extra for the sea view rooms. We were on the top floor and had a small balco...

The location is fantastic, the room was very comfortable, with a brilliant view of the marina and the bay, and the price very reasonable compared with other accomodation in the area. We really liked Rapallo as a town, with plenty to see and do, shops to explore and restaurants to try, and in fact would suggest this as a town in which to stay in preference to Portofino (which is lovely, but overrated in my opinion) or the towns of The Cinque Terre, which may be a little too quiet for most once the day trippers leave. There were two big drawbacks with this hotel. One was the dismissive way with which any of our requests for assistance, services, information or advice were dealt with by it's principal, Claudio. The other was the lack of amenities in the hotel (although I suppose that's what you get if you only pay for three star). Wi-fi was only free for one device, and only for six consecutive hours. After that, or for any additional device, you pay 5€ per each subsequent six hour session (a WIND prepaid sim card is much better value, and there are two WIND shops in Rapallo that I easily found). There are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room, no iron or ironing facilities available at all in the hotel, not even a box of tissues in the room. I feel sorry for the guy working in the restaurant, who at breakfast we found to be absolutely delightful, attentive, friendly and professional. His restaurant is mostly deserted at night, probably because the prices are just not competitive with the abundant choices of restaurants located just around the corner along the promenade, and also that the location is just corner too far from the lively restaurant strip on the waterfront. They might do better if they got rid of the hedge that forms a barrier from the street, and offered a competitive apperitivo at the outdoor bar area, with complementary snacks from about 5pm, as do so many bars just around the corner. I would happily go back to Rapallo, but would think twice before staying at this hotel again. If I did, it would only be after considerably lowering my expectations.

Room Tip: We had a junior suite with a view of the sea.

On our trip to Sardina, we´ve stopped first in Genua and then decided to follow the coast and look for a nice place to stay.
We ended up in Rapallo and decided to stay at this hotel.

Positiv:
- We were travelling with two bikes on our car and the guys from the hotel adivsed us to leave them in the hotel. So they put them into the lobby to ensure that nothings happens - thank you!
- Breakfast is quite good - of course, it´s not a huge hotel but for a good start into the day sufficient.
- Internet is for free and quite fast.
- Central and close to the beach, you will find also something to eat within minutes.

Negativ:
- Parking is quite difficult but we had some luck and found one directly in front of the hotel
- Sea View (sidewards) means that you have to open the window and lean yourself out of it to see the sea :)))

All in all, we very satisfied about our stay and would come back in case that we would end up in Rapallo again.
