“Great experience throughout”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Close to the train station and conveniently located (as long as you don't mind some limited walking). The hotel appears to have been recently refurbished and has a sleek clean and modern look throughout. Very nicely designed bathrooms. Breakfast was the usual European offering. Staff very helpful and pleasant.

A 4 night stay - very nice hotel, recently refurbished, everything is new, clean and works well. Very good buffet breakfast and friendly, helpful staff. A 10 minute walk from the main railway station and where the buses from Pisa airport drop off. From the hotel, all the main sights are walkable or there are buses from the next road down. Very good value place to stay - highly recommended.

Room Tip: corner room on upper floor

We stayed at hotel Rapallo in early April. Found it relatively close to the train station and within easy walking distance to all the main attractions. By far this was the stand out of all the hotels we stayed at during our italian vacation.It has beautiful clean large rooms including a proper cubicle shower. The breakfast was really nice and had a good selection of quality fresh foods. The afternoon treats were also very nice and very welcoming particulary after a long day of sight seeing. Internet also works very well.Our only disappointment was that we werebable to stay one night because we left our booking late. My tip to fellow travellers is book this hotel as soon as possible as you wont be disappointed. Lastly if you are unable to get a booking at. Hotel Rapallo do not stay at the nearby hotel Malsapina as this hotel its quite old and dirty and breakfast is quite average with little selection of quality fresh food.

Excellent hotel. Great value for money.if like us and you arrive by train just look for McDonalds and turn left. The hotel is at the very bottom of this road on left hand side. We struggled a bit with hotel directions so have a look on google maps before you arrive.

Room Tip: We booked a superior double room. We will certainly recommend this hotel

the difficulty of the direction I think it depends on how we entrust our journey to navigation systems on the web. with the dear old paper map, if you make the point where you are, and let the point where we are, come right away. thanks for your nice comment, a warm hug

Just returned 10/4/13 from this hotel it really is excellent, the rooms are modern and spotless breakfast is great and the hotel is ideally placed to visit all the attractions. Directions from the station were bit confusing all you really need to do is cross the road outside the station turn left at McDonald's and walk for about 10 minutes along the same street and you arrive at the hotel. The staff were very helpful the only down side for us was the room had no view but as we were out all day no problem. One word of caution there were quite a few Mosquitos in our room even though the weather was cold so bring some protection this w our fault as we opened the window.

Room Tip: We had 201 no view you need 3,4,5 on each floor to get a view.
