Grand Hotel Bristol, May 25 to May 27 ( 2 nights ) This is a beautiful Hotel and everything is in good order here. We stayed in room 304, which is located on the east side of the building with a view out to the Riviera di Levante. At the reception ** SARA ** checked us in with a friendly... More

We visited the Cinque Terra region and Rapallo for four days and nights. This older, classic and immaculately maintained European style lodging is located about 1 mile east of the city center, an easy and scenic 20 minute walk via the pedestrian path along the waterfront. We took a cab twice during our stay...one was a 10 euro impromptu ride... More

We loved the staff at this Hotel. From older to younger, they were all so pleasant and helpful at all times. It's nice to see young hospitality staff succeed in the demands of the job. The Hotel is lovely too. I have just read a poor review but unfortunately I would have to say those people were unlucky. Our room... More

Looking at other reviews,as we did before we booked, everyone rates this hotel very highly. But, unfortunately our experience was not the same. Our allocated room (315) was small, sparsely furnished, with marked walls and a misted french door. The bath had a strange black line around the rim (mould?) just under the marble and was poorly decorated. We asked... More

The hotel is very well run with friendly staff, the rooms are well appointed and a good size, and the restaurant is excellent with delicious food and great views over the sea. The pool area is attractive and the pool is huge. The public areas are very smart and well decorated. Efficient and quiet air conditioning. I would have given... More

Lovely old hotel that has had a nice interior refurbishment. The lobby and public areas are modern and the bar, breakfast room (with outside terrace), and swimming pool are all nice and clean. Good pool bar service, lots of sun loungers and good quality towels. We had a lovely room on the 5th floor with a coastal view. The room... More

The Bristol is an old hotel that has had a complete interior refurbishment. The lobby and public areas are very smart and modern in style and the bar, breakfast restaurant, spa lobby and swimming pool terrace are all nicely kept and compact. You choose hotels in this beautiful region on the strength of the sea/coast views they offer and the... More

To be fair, we arrived late at night and left early in the morning - unfortunately because it was nice. The room was not big. The bathroom had a big shower ( not in the bath tube) which was fun to shower. Wifi was an extra 7€ as well as parking another 12€, but save. Breakfast was normal standard and... More

We greatly enjoyed our stay here. It's not the smartest hotel I've ever been in, but our room was very comfortable, with a beautiful view of the bay, and all the hotel staff were smiling, friendly and welcoming. Overall, for a hotel of this grade, the pricing of drinks etc was not unduly high. Likewise, services in the Spa area... More
