“Great hotel”
Reviewed 5 July 2012 via mobile

We stayed in the Hotel in June. It was great, the location, the views and the very friendly staff. The staff assisted us in any way they could and made great recommendations for dinner. Its a short walk to S. Margherita L, and has a very convenient bus stop right in front of the hotel going to Rapallo and with one connection to Portifino. There is also smaller beaches really close to the hotel. Hope to see you soon.

We've stayed here before and it was as good as the last time. So repeat business is a great endorsement.

The hotel is in a great position, with lovely views from the rooms. The staff are supremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast is fine and the kitchen staff are very accommodating. Riccardo and his staff made every effort to ensure that our rooms were ready when we arrived directly from Australia - several hours ahead of their check-in time.

Santa Margherita is less than a kilometre, and Portofino is about 6kms. Plenty of choice for restaurants and very good shopping nearby.

Bedrooms and bathrooms are smallish by Australian standards, but very comfortable and functional. Rooms are enhanced by the generous balconies, and beautiful views.

Great value, great location and very welcoming hosts. We wouldn't hesitate to stay a third time.

When we checked in, the receptionist, Marta was very friendly to us. She recommended us the restaurants in S.M.L. and the boat trip to Camogli where we had a nice seafood spaghetti. The room was big, modern, clean and with a balcony with a beautiful sea view. Unfortunately, it was by the main road which was a bit noisy. But they had shutter. Besides I had ear stud.So it did not bother me !
It is a short walk to S.M.L. but there is around 100 metre without footpath. To us it is okay. But if you don't feel comfortable, it can catch bus. The bus stop is next to the hotel. You can have the time table from the hotel. Anyway, it is a nice hotel with a very good service .We must say thank you to Marta and Antonella ( not sure about the spelling ).

We just got back from 4 nights at this lovely little hotel...here is my summary:

- Excellent value for money
- Location is good - it is a short (albeit slightly dangerous walk due to lack of pavement/walk way) to Santa Margherita (which has lots to offer) but there is regular bus service which stops directly outside the hotel
- Once in Santa Margherita there are easy links to the stunning Portofino - we took the ferry which took 15 minutes, I believe there is also a bus service
- The staff at L'Approdo were FANTASTIC. We can't praise them enough. They were always willing to help with ANYTHING. They have comprehensive maps and train times and bus times, restaurant recommendations...the list goes on. They couldn't do enough to help
- Breakfast was simple and filling
- Everywhere is spotlessly clean
- The only small thing I would say is that the church bell did wake me up some mornings, but I guess it's quite a nice sound to be woken up to. And also, the lift was a little noisy during the night but other than that, I can't say anything negative about this lovely little hotel.

Room Tip: Pay that little extra and get a superior room on the 4th floor - the views are stunning

We recently spent 4 nights at L'Approdo and used it as a base to visit the Cinque Terre. It is about 600m from Santa Maragherita, which was a plus for us as it was very quiet but with a great View. The walk is along a main road without a footpath for part of the way, but walking in single file this proved to be no problem. The rooms are small but very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Staff on the front desk were friendly and happy to help with maps and information. My only complaint would be the quality of the breakfast which we found to be disappointing. All in all good value for the price.
