We booked a 3 night stay through Voyage Prive UK. We had a superior room on the 4th floor - fabulous views & tastefully furnished. The service from all members of staff could not be faulted. The spa was lovely although the Jacuzzi was too small & too cold but the sauna & steam rooms were excellent & large. Our...

Dear Sir, We learn his comment and apologize if he considered his table in the " little tower " of 2nd class. The tower gives name to our Restaurant, just " Le Cupole ". How we have noticed we are doing the work due to a weather event last October 14, which caused a lot of demage to the entire...

Booked 3 nights through an online reservations system. Upon arrival we noticed that our room which was close to the elevator wasn't well isolated and each time the elevator stoped on our floor it made some noise. We went to share our concern with the front desk, a blond unpleasant lady explained us that all rooms in that category suffers...

We enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The rooms were large, a little outdated, but we did have a nice sea view. The breakfast was really good, with masses of choice We did eat snacks one night on the top floor, and was outstanding. I can't remember the servers name, but he was fabulous. The spa attached to the hotel...

There are things to like about the Grand Hotel Bristol: it has a spectacular view and a good location, I found the bed comfortable and the shower effective. But the positives are balanced by one major flaw: no hotel that awards itself the soubriquet 'grand' should be charging extra for internet access in the 21st century. I haven't stayed in...

Beautiful rooms with sea view, staff helpful and polite. Breakfast the best we have had any where with impeccable service. Drinks and food in hotel very expensive but then the whole area is. Nice walk downhill into Rapallo but hard work back up in the heat. Probably best suited to couples although we travelled with my 13 year old son...

We stayed here for a week booked through voyage Prive which included a 3 course dinner in the hotel restaurant. Standard of accommodation, quality of service were all what we would expect from a hotel of this type. We had a deluxe double room with sea view. The view across the bay was spectacular by day and night. Yes, the...

The Grand Hotel Bistro is a wonderful hotel. We booked through Great Value Vacations and were very pleased. The staff is friendly. Breakfast was a definite highlight with wonderful views and Prosecco every morning. The restaurant is a little pricey but really good with excellent staff. It's a good option if the weather is bad. The hotel is about a...

We booked a 3 night stay with Voyage Prive and was pleasantly surprised just how lovely the hotel was having read some negative reviews. We stayed in a deluxe room with sea view.

Unlike previous reviewers who focus on a 150-year-old railway line and the trains that run upon it, a crane on private land and mosquitoes that are somehow the hotel's responsibility, I would like to focus on what is within the scope of this establishment and which, in my opinion, is done well. The hotel is extremely well-situated with a wonderful...

Myself and my husband spent our mini moon in this hotel and had a lovely time. It’s about a 10-15 minute walk from what you would consider to be the centre of Rapallo. It’s a beautiful little town with lots of fantastic bars and restaurants and quite a few shops. In terms of visiting as a tourist, there isn’t a...
