Very nice hotel. Breakfast was included and excellent. Dinner overpriced. I walked down the coast path and found a restaurant called "Sole" address is Lungomare Castelllo 10, 16035 Rapallo. Nice view, price reasonable and excellent food. .

We were lucky to stay here before the start of high season with attractive rates and fabulous weather. The rooms with sea view were very nice, well appointed, and worth the extra cost. Breakfast was very good in a lovely dining room also overlooking the sea. One of our group used the spa for a massage and was very impressed... More

This hotel was lovely. The rooms were nice, and clean, although some needed a little TLC (wrought iron balcony and shutters needed work). The staff was very accommodating. The downside is that this hotel is not close to the town center. I wouldn't walk because of the winding road and shallow walks and it is at least 15 minutes to... More

Stayed at GH Bristol for a wedding, great place and atmosphere. Rooms are big, classic and not modern at all but are functional and clean. Service, breakfast, food, ..., everything is perfect, also the huge pool. Little downside maybe is that the hotel is not very close to the city center (about 15mins walking)

This hotel is located outside the city center, the rooms and bath are large, others have said that it needs an update, and that is probably just the carpeting, the rest of the hotel was great. The front desk staff has helpful especially Raffaella who helped me with several small matters. I will say that the free wifi included in... More

My partner and I stayed here for 9 days and were impressed. We were warmly welcomed by a smart young man at reception, who was helpful and recommended that we eat in the hotel's rooftop restaurant. We were not disappointed; the view was beautiful. It was a very relaxing place to stay, the rooms are very well soundproofed. However, my... More

We moved to this hotel for 2 nights after 6 nights at the Italia E Lido right on the front. The Hotel is about 20 minutes walk up a winding road above Rapallo and the views across the bay of Portofino are amazing. We booked a sea view room - it was in good condition but we felt that housekeeping... More

My husband and I spent four nights at Hotel Bristol in Rapallo and would stay there again. The rooftop restaurant was our very favorite with its impeccable service, exquisitely prepared cuisine, and breathtaking nighttime view of the Ligurian Gulf. The two head waiters were exceptionally professional (we teased one of them about the menu prices being presented only to my... More
