We booked two double rooms for two nights. It is excellent managed privately owned hotel. I is located just on the border between Rapallo and Santa Margherita Ligure so you have both for the same price. We had our rooms on the first floor, you should book them too. Why? because they are the only one with great huge balcony... More

Very clean and modern room. Requested a Sea View room at booking, which was granted at checkin. TIP - definitely book a car park at 15 Euros per day if driving there. All the staff were very helpful and spoke good English. Breakfast was one of the better ones experienced in Italy, as was able to slow boil an egg.

Dear Guest, thank you so much for your nice review and for your precious tip regarding the car park . As we have 7 places out of 32 rooms the park place is very often fully booked that is why it is so important to ask for availability BEFORE arrival because sooner you ask for it more chances you get...

Touring Italy in August with the crowds and heat is murderous. This hotel, with its awesome views and away from the major crowd attractions, was a pleasant relief in the evenings and mornings.

We were upgraded to a top floor room with a balcony and views over the bay. The balcony had sunbeds and chairs too. The room was lovely and clean with nice bed linen, towels, a fridge and every amenity.

Well located, clean and rooms with amazing views. No parking space for cars and the access to a parking spot is tricky since you have to walk on a very busy road with no sidewalk to get to your car. Amazing breakfast.
