We stayed in a room on the 4th floor which had a truly stunning view of the bay and the boats. The hotel is situated right opposite the sea front and is about 5 minutes from the railway station. No need for a taxi. The hotel is flanked by a choice of restaurants and the shops are in the little streets imediately behind you.You really are in the middle of everything though there can be some noise from the street entertainment that can go on on some weekend evenings. This problem would be common to all the hotels in the centre of Rapallo though.
The room was spotlessly clean and the bed was huge. There was a clean en suite with all you might need though the shower is an over the bath affair and it was tricky not to get the floor wet as new shower screens are probably needed. Breakfast was served downstairs and there was a help yourself system with cereal, croissants, muffins, cakes, bread, cheese, ham, jams and so on. Fresh coffee was served at the table. Luciano is very helpful and offered lots of friendly tips and advice. We really did feel welcome and the atmosphere is very relaxed. We looked at some of the other hotels and tried to imagine the views they might have had from their rooms but decided that we were certainly in the best position. I wouldn't hesitate to return here.
