My boyfriend and I chose this hotel because we were looking for something reasonably prized in the expensive Portofino/ Santa Margherita/ Rapallo area. The hotel is just a quick 10 minute walk for the train station and made a great home base for exploring the coast.
The hotel itself is definitely a budget hotel. The rooms are very simple and plan. The sheets and towels are definitely well used and there is no air conditioning. The breakfast that is included is also very limited. That being said, we still loved our stay at Villa Cristina. We took full advantage of our beautiful balcony, which was the perfect place to sit outside in the evening and enjoy a glass of wine. As I mentioned before the location of the hotel is wonderful. You have all of Rapallo right at your fingertips. For us, this was most important. If you are looking for something modern or deluxe, I recommend looking elsewhere. But if you are looking for something that fits the budget this is a great little place.
My only other word of advice is the owners are very kind and friendly however they speak very little English.
