The location is great and the staff are very helpful and nice. However, it's a very basic hotel and nothing special. Do not be misled by 'a room with a limited sea view'. You have to have a long neck and peek out of the window to see the sea.

It's a three-star, officially, but you won't believe it once you find yourself in one of the rooms at the top floors, facing the sea, freshly rebuilt and with an air conditioning system so perfect that kept us absolutely cool, in perfect silence, during one of the hottest nights of July 2015! Highly recommended also for the courtesy of the... More

The Hotel Riviera was in a very good location on the sea front. It was easy access from the railway station(walking distance) The rooms were clean and a good size. I would recommend a sea view room if possible as the view is very good. The staff are friendly and very helpful especially Lorenzo who was very informative and nothing... More

We enjoyed our five night stay here very much. Great spot, near restaurants, awesome bakery next door. I was a little concerned about traffic noise, but it ended up being fine. Comfy beds, good bathroom, the family that run the hotel were lovely. No tourist office in Rapallo but it didn't matter we got excellent recommendations for day trips, tips... More

The hotel is rather simple, rated as a 3*, it is small and well managed. It is ideally located on the sea front. Yes there is a busy round about just in front but unless you want to sleep with the window wide opened, it doesn't really matter. Tons of cafes, bars and restaurants just round the corner. I paticularely... More

Winter stay for two nights. My friend stayed in one room and I was in another. The views from the rooms are lovely. Although very basic decor, the rooms are large and provide everything you need, except a very outdated hair dryer. Claudio, the owner and his son Lorenzo were the perfect hosts, providing useful information on things to do... More

While traveling in September with another couple we stayed at Hotel Riviera for three nights and two days. We loved the location, at the center of Rapallo with a view of the harbor and beyond. The staff suggested where we could park at no charge (around the corner from the hotel) and were always available to provide site, restaurant and... More

This was a very nice hotel located by the Mediterranean Sea. The room we were given was one of the more spacious during our visit to Italy. There was a second sitting room and closet, which was nice. There was access to an outside sitting area. The hotel was in a great location next to many restaurants and also close... More
