Our experience here was excellent. Luciano, Andrea and the rest of the team never failed to extend themselves to ensure we were having the best time. The breakfast was extensive and tasty, with coffee served at our table. The suite we were in had a view to the Ocean and busy street, but was nicely soundproofed. It is about an hour to the furthest reaches of Cinque Terre from here, but you can get to Monterossa in 40m by train (hourly departures). Treat yourself to an afternoon at the Excelsior “Eden Roc” beach club up the hill at the Excelsior. For 25 Euros/person after 2pm, it seems pricey, but is really an awesome deal with an infinity pool and ocean swimming.
Pros — First-rate people always ready to help. Rapallo is cute and walkable. Very easy five-minute walk from train. Nice breakfast. Lots of shopping and dining very close at hand.
Cons — Hard to think of any. We liked Rapallo as a Cinque Terre base, but I can imagine that if that’s your whole focus in the region you might want to stay nearer.
