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

Just returned from a 3 night stay at this lovely hotel. We arrived from the station by taxi, which was 15 Euro's, but you can walk it in about 20 minutes. It is a beautiful grand hotel and there is a large pool in front of the hotel. We were warmly welcomed and found the staff all pleasant and friendly.... More

Just returned from a 3 night stay in this delightful hotel. Had a sea view room on the 3rd floor and what a view - absolutely superb. Breakfast taken on the terrace every morning looking at sea and over to Rapallo, Santa Margarita and just see Portofino. The ferry to Portofino is from the promenade and an easy walk down... More

This is a lovely hotel with great views over the bay. It's definitely worth getting a sea view room. We know it was end of season, but there are some missed opportunities at this hotel. By mid- afternoon, the pool was very busy, but the pool bar was closed as end of season. It would have taken very little for... More
