We aren't normally in the suite-booking league but had no regrets about pushing the boat out for this special holiday by staying in a Junior Suite for a week. This was well worth the cost because of the spaciousness and comfort provided which enabled us to spread all our luggage out very easily that we'd brought for the 3 week-long... More

Definitely not the best 4**** I've been in for a while. Though the reception staff were friendly and efficient, the entire Hotel is quite passé and in dire need of renovation. We were located on the 5th floor, which is probably the worst floor as it is directly below the restaurant. I had a hard time falling asleep as the... More

This Hotel is an enigma. It presents with such grace and beauty on the surface, but struggles a bit with it's mechanics. Situated on the coast, just outside of Rapallo, it is the epitome of luxury and grace. It's garage is filled with expensive cars, and the entry is glamourous. Up in the rooms, however, it is a bit of... More

Overall this hotel was very pleasant and the staff was helpful especially Lucca at reception....the one thing that was not good was the 7 euro daily Internet access fee which seemed strange for a 4 star hotel and that 7 euro bought you extremely slowwww access. Again the hotel was nicely appointed and we enjoyed our stay.

Located a lovely walk from the centre of Rapallo, this hotel offers some stunning views and a very good standard of rooms - we had a Superior Room (203) overlooking the bay and the town, good size, well decorated and airy. Breakfast is very tasty with a superb selection from hot to continental, served on the outside the Terrace or... More

Arrived at 11.45am, it is now 17.00. we have sat by the pool at the time and have not checked in because we do not like the view and noise of the building site and crane. earlier on the building site they were burning something - very unpleasant. Hotel not that interested. Citalia rep sympathetic... More

This hotel was a bit of a treat for us in the middle of a tour of Liguria. We stayed 5 nights, much longer than other guests typically stayed. It's a very classy hotel with good common areas and a great pool area to relax in. Our room was a great size with wonderful views over to Portofino. The negatives,... More

Having booked this hotel via Citalia for our 40th Wedding anniversary we felt sure everything would go smoothly. We had used Citalia in the past and therefore trusted their choice of hotels and indeed their description of their hotels. On arrival at Grand Hotel Bristol we were met by a very unhelpful receptionist who preferred to wait for a phone... More
