This hotel exceeded all our expectations in every respect. From the genuine warm welcome to the very high standard of cuisine, we found it difficult to find fault with this hotel. Unlike some other reviewers we would recommend a Deluxe Room which provides a wonderful sea view down the promontory towards Portofino. The balcony is somewhat limited in space but...

I apologise but this review is 12 months overdue, either way I remember the stay as if it were yesterday. We stayed for 7 nights last year and had a wonderful stay at the Grand Hotel Bristol. The service was friendly and helpful and all the staff did whatever they could to ensure our stay was a memorable one. The...

This is a bautifully located hotel, nice pool and spectacular view. But... That does not help when: - The receptionist is incapable of booking two taxis when you ask for TWO taxis - The lunch menu at the 1st floor restaurant is terrible, and the few items they have are no good. - The pool bar is unattended for most...

After a very long drive from Venice we (my husband, our 15 & 16 year olds and I) arrived at the Grand Hotel Rapallo. We were immediately impressed by the exterior and the presentation of the reception area. The pool was a very good size for swimming, with plenty of available sun beds at the times we used it –...

There are a few good points to this hotel but they tend to be out-weighed by the negatives. It is a fine hotel with good quality rooms, friendly & very helpful reception staff, a great pool & outstanding views from the front of the hotel. BUT, but....Location: it is not really in Rapallo. When you come out the main gate...

I didn't really like this hotel. It is a "luxuous" hotel when you see the big reception, the view, the parking and garden and the room prices (nearly 350€/night)... but when you get into you room it is so small. The bathroom was so tiny. When you got to the spa it is quite dirty and ridiculous. There is a...

The hotel itself is a beautiful building, it has enormous character and transports you to a bygone age. It has as you would expect with a building this old, some areas which may need a little tlc (some of the shutters need repair), but to be fair you wouldn't want the building to be absolutley perfect, the minor imperfections add...

Stayed 4 nights in July. Chose this hotel because of free parking (some others in Rapallo charge 25 euros a night). First impressions very good - smart hotel and beautiful sea-view Junior Suite with small balcony. Spotlessly clean room. Good air-con was a blessing. Fabulous shower. Then went to the bar for a drink and got stung for 23 euros...

Rapallo and the surrounding areas are beautiful and unspoilt with lovely scenery and a pleasant boat trip to Santa Margarita and Portofino. There are plenty of restaurants and bars in Rapallo, some lovely shops and a good street market on Thursdays. At first we were pleasantly surprised by the hotel and its comforts, but unfortunately we were badly let down...
