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 Although very basic decor, the rooms are large and provide everything you need, except a very outdated hair dryer.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

Very nice family run hotel, Rooms very clean and a beautiful room. Just a tad bit expensive but I don't want to complain :-). Very close to everything and right across from the beach. People are very friendly and made some new friends.

We were visiting friends in Rapallo and they booked a stay at the Hotel Riviera for us. The hotel is clean, very close to everything, and the staff was very nice and accommodating. Asking queations/speaking in English was not a problem at all. We highly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting the area. It is very easy to walk around... More

YOu can get the ferry tickets from... More

Great family hotel where the hospitality from the host family and staff is absolutely worth paying for. Clean rooms and good value for money. Some rooms have very good views. The intimate restaurant/kitchen beats all the kitchens along the Rapallo strip and the waiters are providing a high level of service and good spirit. Location in Rapallo and the sea... More

We had a balcony facing the water and the room was perfect. Ernest Hemingway once stayed in our room. The restaurant in the hotel was excellent. Rappollo is a charming town. Next time I would stay a week.

Excellent location and very good breakfast - they were also kind enough to serve my family even slightly past breakfast time. Definitely recommend ! Besides, Rapallo is an excellent location...
