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

Generally a nice hotel, but I wish to warn other potential guests that at the front of the hotel there is a construction site( maybe new apartment's) complete with a crane and very noisy workmen. Our visit was at the beginning of April and the noise and view spoilt our stay - I guess the construction site will be there... More

I really wanted to give this hotel 5 stars. We were upgraded upon arrival to a very nicely appointed suite with amazing views of the bay. Staff was professional and efficient. The minor point was the menu choices both in the bar area as well as its top floor restaurant. The latter provided sweeping views of the bay, with a... More

We had a great time in this hotel and the view is simply awesome, see photo! The service was good and the restaurant on the the top of the hotel is great. Rapallo is in general a great place to be. But in peak-season the traffic is quite intense.

This is a lovely hotel up on a hill on the very edge of Rapallo, with an amazing coastal walk from very near the hotel all the way to the town. We were there on a travel deal, so it was very good value. Not sure we would pay the full rates in the summer though. Staff are excellent, particularly... More

I am sure once upon a time, the Grand Hotel Bristol was very grand, ship-shape and Bristol fashion, but that time seems now to be long gone. Arrive at the entrance in my car and as there were no porters, haul out my luggage into reception. Then told to park my car down in the basement: do so, make my... More

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
