Rapallo is lovely and this hotel is nicely located near the waterfront with modern rooms. There was a history of the hotel in the room and apparently it used to be a stopping off point for pilgrims en route to Rome (other than this, its history seems unremarkable, though the building is nice). The lobby has a modern feel to it and we had dinner in the restaurant where the entertainment was a cheesily good piano player. Dinner was pretty good but the service was patchy (waiter bore a striking resemblance to Matt Lucas).
The staff at check in and check out were terrible, just clueless, paid in cash and they gave incorrect change but didn't seem to care a bit.
Best tip for staying in Rapallo - drive out to Portofino, it's absolutely gorgeous.
