We had just left 5 star luxury in Genoa to come here to a 3 star so we weren't expecting to like the Approdo half as much as we did. The best thing about the hotel is the wonderfully pleasant and friendly staff, who were so helpful all the time, even helping me to practice my (very poor!) Italian and improve it, recommending different drinks at the bar, giving us very useful advice on the best days to visit the Cinque Terre, Portofino etc. As well as the fantastic staff, the hotel itself is spotlessly clean with lovely rooms and a great view over the bay from San Michele di Pagana to Rapallo and beyond. It is located about 2-3 mins walk from San Michele, 10-12 mins walk from Santa Margherita Ligure and about 25-30 mins walk from Rapallo. There is a path most of the way apart from a very narrow stretch up the hill towards Santa Margherita. But there is a bus service and the last one leaves Santa Margherita at 11:30pm. So it is still pretty convenient to get to any of the 3 towns nearby. We would love to stay here again and were very sad to leave it!
