My mum and I stayed at Il Convento in June 2012 during a train-trip around Europe. Rapallo was our only stop in Italy and my mother's first time in Europe. We had an absolutely fantastic time and felt so comfortable and relaxed in the well-located and spacious apartment. The staff were so helpful and friendly. We would love to visit... More

We stayed at Il Convento on our way to Rome and would whole-heartedly recommend it as a place to stay in Rapallo. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful, and the location is ideal - close enough to walk to to the town centre and many restaurants. Travelling by car, the parking can be a bit tricky, but they have... More

We spent two weeks at Il Convento, and it was a wonderful time for us. The location so close to the town centre, the railway for our day excursions, and the corso for promenading, was perfect. Our appartment was always spotlessly clean, and the staff were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. It was our best holiday ever.

Just a short walk from the station and with fantastic views of the waterfront, this was a great place to base our few days on the Ligurian coast. We enjoyed the independence of having our own small kitchen and used this as an opportunity to try some of the delicious local products. The ferry to Portofino was less than five... More

Great little hotel. Clean and friendly. The owner personally parked my car in a special space. Short walk to everything the town has to offer. Cute spots overlooking water for coffee. Really enjoyed the stay .

Just returned from a lovely stay here. Affordable and comfortable with happy helpful staff. Location could not be better, walkable to all places you could want to go in Rapallo and just a 10 minute walk to the train/bus station for days further afield. Billa supermarket near station is close enough for essentials, but lots of small interesting shops close... More

Was there for the april bank holiday. Nice and comfortable accomodation close to the beach and the tower. Quiet area, it's nice to wake up with the sea-shore sound! It is Not far from the train station, which was perfect for taking the train for visiting 'cinque terre'. Probably the only one with reasonable price in Rapallo. The only Negative... More

We stayed here with our 14 year old son. A great apartment in terrific location and close to Cinque Terre (while far enough away to enjoy some quiet time as well). We will definitely come back here an highly recommend it to anyone looing into this region.

We stay in Rapallo frequently to visit my wife’s family here and in Genoa. As such, we have stayed in a number of Rapallo hotels now (and a couple of apartments as well). I think it gives us a pretty good perspective on the town and the hotel market. We first toured this hotel four years ago on a visit... More

Everything about this place was fantastic, from check in to check out. The service (the maid even took our hand-washed socks and put in 'airing cupboard') was beyond measure. The room was lovely, clean, spacious, airy - close to shops and waterfront. The restaurant next door was served outstanding simple food with great service. The front desk went out of... More
