The rooms were clean, a good size, contemporary furnished and had comfortable beds we were on the second floor with a lovely view of the bay. Breakfast was included and had a good choice.

We have just returned from a wonderful week. I can only reiterate what fellow customers have said. We were allocated a first floor room with large balcony, sun beds, and spectacular views of bay and hillside. We would have liked to have taken more advantage of this, apart from early morning and evening, but there was too much to see... More

In many ways this hotel was very good. The facility is nice and situated such that our room had nice views of the cove area. The breakfast was a good start for the day. The staff was extremely helpful and very engaged. The main thing that prevents me from giving the hotel a higher rating is that the bed was... More

Dear Guest, thank you for your nice review. How sad for me to hear that you did not share with us your matter with beds; infact we do have softer mattresses for guests who prefer softer sleeping. Of course we can't fix a problem we know anything about but anyway I'm sorry that you didn't not fully enjoy your stay.... More

We visited the hotel last month celebrating someone's birthday and I have to admit it is indeed a wonderful place to stay. Excellent location, beautiful view, clean rooms and the staff is fantastic! A big thanks to the three ladies at the reception who made our stay a great stay!

We had just left 5 star luxury in Genoa to come here to a 3 star so we weren't expecting to like the Approdo half as much as we did. The best thing about the hotel is the wonderfully pleasant and friendly staff, who were so helpful all the time, even helping me to practice my (very poor!) Italian and... More

Lovely hotel with really helpful and attentive staff. Amazing views from balconies, and rooms modern and airy and very well serviced. Great location for Santa Margarieta and Rapallo-easy to walk, road section can be avoided via very steep walk up the side of the hotel. Definitely recommend and hope to visit again.

We stumbled upon L'approdo nearly four years ago and planned to stay here again if we returned to the area. The rooms are modern and very nice, and although the hotel looks plain from the outside, the interior is modern and nicely appointed.
