Close to Rapallo, 15 minutes from center city the hotel is beautiful and well maintained. Rooms clean fragrante and bright, with sea view to the Liguria's sea. Rapallo is besides Saint Marguerita Ligurie wich is before Porto Fino. You can do this tour by bus, cheaper and cheaper.

We stayed at the Grand Hotel Bristol over Christmas and had a very nice time. The staff was very helpful and the rooms were very nice. Our family of two adults and three children stayed in a Junior Suite and double room with a gorgeous sea view. The Junior suite had a very nice bathroom and the room was large... More

Stayed at the hotel for four nights during off-season in December. The hotel was almost empty, but the staff was still very nice and helpful. Beautiful view from the room facing the sea. Breakfast was OK with buffet containing cheese selection, cold cuts, bread, juice, hard boiled eggs, yoghurt, etc. You can also ask for eggs (scrambled, sunny side up,... More

My husband and I spent 2 weeks at the stately Grand Hotel Bristol Resort and Spa in late September. The weather was beautiful and the area was not crowded. The hotel is used by tour groups for 1-2 night stays. The groups left for the outings by 8 AM, so breakfast room and terrace were not crowded. The hotel is... More

We stayed in Rapallo after a friend stayed there last year and highly recommended it. I am so glad she did! What a beautiful place! The hotel was about a 10 minute taxi ride from the train station. It sits on a hill, so the views are incredible. We had a "sea view suite" which had a balcony that looked... More

A lovely hotel rising from the hillside & a spectacular sight especially from the sea. We stayed here with friends in October & loved many aspects of the hotel. Amazing views over the bay from our bedroom (actually from our bed ) which was great to wake up to. Rooms were nicely decorated with a comfortable bed & attractive soft... More

This is how travel should be. From the moment you are welcomed by groomed and gracious staff, to the second you throw open the shutters onto traditional wrought iron balcony and see the best views in Rapallo; you'll know this is the right place to relax and savour this stunning area. Food great, impeccably clean and the special treat of... More

We had a truly wonderful 3 night stay at their suites and would return to the Grand Bristol in a Heartbeat! The first night we took a taxi to the city center for dinner, but after that we found dinner at the hotel restaurant Cupola to be more enjoyable so we had two dinners at the Cupole. The food quality,... More

This hotel is situated just outside of the 1960's beach hot-spot of Rapallo. A truly hidden gem, up on a hill overlooking the sea and the bay of Rapallo, it is blessed with an idyllic setting. The hotel is an ageing beauty, similar to those one would find in St Tropez in her hey-day. An elegant sea facing façade with... More
