Il Convento was an excellent location within walking distance of the train station and grocery store, restaurants and the ferry that connects from Rapollo to RioMaggiore and the Cinque Terre areas. Our very friendly hosts (Paolo, Manuella and Victor) at Il Convento went above and beyond in helping us with scooter rental (perfect for visiting Portofino and Santa Margherita) (sorry... More

Il Convento had been recommended by other family members and they were right. It was inexpensive and perfect, as is Rapallo itself. The views were fabulous and the proximity to the waterside was footsteps away! When leaving, I inadvertently left my iphone under my pillow. From Rapallo I travelled to France and Spain. Manuela remained in constant contact until I... More

On a previous trip to Rapallo, we had stayed on the other side of the harbour corso/promenade. This time we elected to try the castle fortrezza and old convent end, thus Il convento. We had pre-booked a self contained room with kitchenette and view. On arrival we were ushered into a one window apartment with a sidelong glimpse of the... More

My mum and I stayed at Il Convento in June 2012 during a train-trip around Europe. Rapallo was our only stop in Italy and my mother's first time in Europe. We had an absolutely fantastic time and felt so comfortable and relaxed in the well-located and spacious apartment. The staff were so helpful and friendly. We would love to visit... More

We stayed at Il Convento on our way to Rome and would whole-heartedly recommend it as a place to stay in Rapallo. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful, and the location is ideal - close enough to walk to to the town centre and many restaurants. Travelling by car, the parking can be a bit tricky, but they have... More

We spent two weeks at Il Convento, and it was a wonderful time for us. The location so close to the town centre, the railway for our day excursions, and the corso for promenading, was perfect. Our appartment was always spotlessly clean, and the staff were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. It was our best holiday ever.

Just a short walk from the station and with fantastic views of the waterfront, this was a great place to base our few days on the Ligurian coast. We enjoyed the independence of having our own small kitchen and used this as an opportunity to try some of the delicious local products. The ferry to Portofino was less than five... More

Great little hotel. Clean and friendly. The owner personally parked my car in a special space. Short walk to everything the town has to offer. Cute spots overlooking water for coffee. Really enjoyed the stay .

Just returned from a lovely stay here. Affordable and comfortable with happy helpful staff. Location could not be better, walkable to all places you could want to go in Rapallo and just a 10 minute walk to the train/bus station for days further afield. Billa supermarket near station is close enough for essentials, but lots of small interesting shops close... More

It is Not far from the train station, which was perfect for taking the train for visiting 'cinque terre'. Probably the only one with reasonable price in Rapallo. The only Negative... More
