We spent 2 nights at l'Approdo in September part of our Italian road trip. Thankfully Rapallo and Portofino was really quiet as the hotel. The view from our balcony was beautiful and the room was spacious&clean. The breakfast was great too with big variety and lovely coffee. Location is perfect expecially if you drive as we did; you can explore... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Good location in that it is approx midway between S. Margarita and Rapallo. It is easy to walk to either but a small section of road is without a footpath. There is road noise but this quietens down at night. Very clean rooms and throughout the Hotel. Good choice at breakfast. Very lovely views over... More

The room and bath are very clean and larger than expected. However, despite a lovely large balcony, smoking is permitted outside so neighbor's smoke ruins the experience. The smoke also drifts in if one keeps the door open, which we wanted to do to let the fresh air in. Some kind of chemical-based aroma--not natural --permeated the room and the... More

Breakfast is good with great variety of fruits, pastries, juices and coffees. The housekeepers shoved all of our belongings to one corner. We asked for 30min late checkout but it wasn't possible...
