You walk into an old Ligurian apartment that is devided into several guest rooms - it has a feel of the old days when retired ladies "of a certain age" used to come down to Rapallo for the winter, and it has a sense of nostalgia over it. The rooms may be basic, and it's a cheap place to stay.... More

This b&b (wouldn't call it a hotel) is very nice and simple. The lady who runs it is extremly nice and welcoming, even that her english is limited. The rooms are very simple and basics, the location is amazing - in the center of the center. The parking was very close to the hotel and wasn't a problem to find... More

Within less than 5 minutes from the hotel by foot, I was able to avail of a ferry/or bus to Portofino, and trains to Cinque Terre, and indeed all of the Riveria coast. The host family are genuinely very... More

I found the owner and son amazingly nice ; I didn't encounter that type or care and kindness everywhere in Italy so it was refreshing. Place is very well located to go to Portofino which is the nicest place around, you got to jump on a bus and it drops you there. La Vela is in front of Europa 4... More

This looked so promising - a family-run restaurant (which looked good) plus hotel - so we booked into the hotel for one night. The room smelt a bit smokey, but looked okay, so we took it. The bathroom made it a bit cramped, as did the spare broken chair. The matresses needed replacing - but the linen was clean. The... More
