We had clients from the USA staying at the Riviera in early October, for 4 nights. Their experience was incredible. from the fantastic room with two different views of the town and the Mediterranean see, to the courteous and friendly staff, and the pleasant family run atmosphere. Do not forget to eat at the hotel restaurant. It is very good.

We stayed for one night in Rapallo and Riviera was the optimum choise. Walking distance from everything, comfortable room, reasonable price. Staff was helpful and friendly. We could not connect to wifi at all (with iPhone / iPad), the range was OK but no response from the AP. Breakfast was a OK.

Hotel Riviera has a good location in a lively town. Family run and all the staff were very helpful, including the one from near Bologna! We received good advice on travelling around. Boat trip and train travel. Good quality restaurant. Compact rooms but all the facilities were good. Good market on Thursdays.

The location is fantastic, the room was very comfortable, with a brilliant view of the marina and the bay, and the price very reasonable compared with other accomodation in the area. We really liked Rapallo as a town, with plenty to see and do, shops to explore and restaurants to try, and in fact would suggest this as a town... More

We stayed in the hotel for four nights in October 2012. The location of the hotel was excellent. It was very well kept and very clean. The staff was friendly especially Lorenzo. (Claudio was lazy). We paid for the upgraded room, but were under the impression that it was a standard room. The room was ocean front, but was very... More

You cannot go wrong with this hotel (the good reviews/ ratings are accurate, anything else is not). Absolutely great location (walking distance to everything), outstanding views, nice breakfast, exceptional service, very reasonable price, etc. etc. What more can you ask for in a hotel?

Right on the water front and within easy walking distance of the railway station the Hotel Riviera was a great find! The owner and staff were incrediblly friendly and helpful the bonus being their English was pretty good (certainly much better than our Italian). The breakfasts were excellent and the added bonus being the two superb dinners we had in... More

Claudio Gambero (Owner) is the type of Italian business person that you were warned about that will lie and cheat to make more money. This included (at the very 1st) trying to give you a lower quality room that is not what you reserved, not providing Air Conditioning (because it is cold at night or broken or, or, or) and... More

Where do I begin - the owner was crooked. When we checked in, he tried to give us a lesser room saying it was all that was open. When I showed him my confirmation, he gave us the type of room we had requested. Our second day there, we had no hot water in the morning. It had been turned... More
