I spent here four days with my family and our stay was very nice. We had breakfast included in the room rate and we definitely appreciated it. In order to follow the COVID-19 rules, we had to choose our breakfast the night before and in the morning we were served at our table (amazing service and great food). The room was quite big, very clean and tidy. The staff was very helpful, but I would recommend to the receptionists to be a bit more friendly. There is a parking space for the hotel, but you have to pay for it and to be honest the fare is quite high! I think the location of the hotel is the best aspect. It’s just in front of the sea, and if you cross the road you’ll be walking next to the castle of Rapallo.

Booked this hotel for the parking (parking in Italian Cities is always a nightmare), on arrival at hotel informed no parking, cancelled stay, THEY KEPT MY MONEY. EVEN THOUGH they promised that they wouldn’t! (have it in writing!) Have subsequently sent many emails to lastminute.com and this excuse for a hotel requesting refund, NO REPLY. However, maybe we “dodged a bullet”, the Covid rate in Rapallo currently doesn’t look that good, there was a huge coach parked outside the hotel, coaches, their passengers and covid are a “marriage made in heaven!”. Add to that the beach towels drying on the balconies (classy) and some of the comments listed by other guests on this site (I paid thus I must have been a guest) about the condition and cleanliness of the rooms I think it was better that we stayed elsewhere. Final point - how could there not have been any parking if they had a bus full of clients staying? WHAT PARKING!!! Also never using lastminute.com again

The lady and the man at the front desk were very friendly when we arrived. The hotel has an underground garage where we could park. The reception, bar, restaurant give me the impression they are recently refurbished. The rooms however are a bit outdated. Especially the bath room needs an urgent make-over (traces of mold on the edges of the bath which is not pleasant to see) The hotel itself has a very good situation (almost immediately on the lungomare) and the very nice shopping street is around the corner. We had dinner on the hotel terrace. Food was good and service was very friendly. All by all it is certainly not a bad hotel, but rooms and bath rooms need a make over. In my opinion 4 stars is overrated. 3 stars would be correct.

Nice place, COVID compliant. Centre of town , walking distance to beach, shops and places to eat and train station. Car parking available, but not always at the hotel. First come first serve. Friendly service, rooms modern, Wifi worked. No hot breakfast served, only continental. English no issue. Recommended.

The hotel must have suffered a lot from covid and some problems with the service which was not very friendly nor helpful could be better and less condescending - however I don’t believe the old look and the very bad state of most of the property can be excused by the covid. Hotel is old, does not smell very well and is super expensive. We’ll pass next time

Lovely hotel in a beautiful town. Very clean in all areas, old fashioned styled rooms. Staff were very polite and friendly especially Sorin,nothing seemed to be to much trouble. Very close to the main town and the scenic promenade. If going in a group although the food was excellent we were given a set menu.

To start with I pretty much agree with previous reviews of this hotel. The negative points are that it is definitely a little 'tired' and the rooms would benefit from some TLC. Having said that there is also something rather nostalgic about the hotel; it reminds me of a faded glory and is quite charming. Our standard room was large with a huge comfortable bed and a side view of the sea. The door to the en-suite creaked rather loudly, which made night-time visits a bit noisy, and the shower was pretty poor, with very low pressure, and situated in a whirlpool bath (not tried) which meant the base was sculptured to sit in so a bit awkward to stand in. There endeth the negative lesson. We had booked this through Secret Escapes and had half-board. The food was wonderful, to put it mildly. The deal gave us a welcome drink, which turned out to be a glass of prosecco at dinner, but we got it at every dinner! Also the 2-course meal advertised was in fact 3-courses, plus garlic pizza bread to nibble on with the prosecco. Wonderful pasta, fabulous meat dishes, great fish, including sea bass baked in salt one night, and superb desserts – the tiramisu was sublime! And breakfast was wonderful, including, as one reviewer has mentioned, the foccacia bread. And the carafe of house wine very nice indeed, and reasonably priced. The staff also make this hotel a real delight to stay in, especially our waiter Daniel, who was always cheerful, friendly and a really great waiter. The reception staff were very helpful and we managed to park outside the hotel in their marked space. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. The hotel is literally 2 minutes from the harbour, and 5 min from the train station. There's an excellent supermarket about 3 min away which catered for everything we needed.

We had landed at Genova airport and took the Flybus (a short ride every 15 mins) to Sestri Ponente train station. The train to Rapallo took 1 hr 15 mins and is very cheap. The hotel is an easy 5 mins walk from the train station, with a large supermarket located half way and open 24/7. We had a double room facing the rear of the hotel overlooking the many air conditioning units. Also a church which started ringing its bells every 30 mins from 7.00am each morning! Nice size room but it was dated and a very small bathroom squeezing in a bath. No hair conditioner is provided. Facilities included free wifi, air con, safe, fridge, hairdryer. Only 2 English speaking tv channels: CNN & Euronews. No tea & coffee in the room, but lovely breakfast with omelette cooked to your liking. The hotel restaurant and bar area is nice and modern, with a lovely seating area outside. I understand the food for evening meals is also of high quality, but we would also recommend eating out at Ristorante Nettuno (book in advance) or Vesuvio next to Nettuno on the promenade front. The hotel is located very close to the promenade and you can enjoy a leisurely stroll around the bay. Rapallo and the Europa hotel is a convenient central location to easily visit Santa Margherita, Portofino, Camogli and Sestri Levante by train or ferry.

I don't like to write negative reviews however this was suppose to be a bit of relax and luxury for our final few days in Italy. We stayed for two nights, dinner and breakfast and We booked the spa experoence but moments after arrival we were told the spa would be closed for our full day there and that evening it was unable to accommodate us, the lady at reception had no desire whatsoever to try and find a solution and essentially shrugged me away. Our room overlooked a noisy carpark, our bathroom door wouldn't close, and the bath leaked, not a little, but a lot, the evening food was warmed up and not cooked fresh and included parts of uneaten breakfast buffet, which is fair enough to a certain extent. The waiting staff we're very friendly however dont expect to find a bottle of wine below €25 and it was almost funny to see the cigarette box tucked into the chefs top pocket. In summary, it's beautiful from outside, location is perfect but very outdated and felt very cheap.

We booked 1 night on a last minute website, including breakfast, welcome cocktail, 90 minutes spa access and dinner. The hotel is nice, close to the seafront and would deserve the 4 stars it claims. But it needs some more care by the owner and by the staff. Parking in the area is almost impossible; the hotel has a garage (19 euros/night), and that's ok, but they also rent what to me seems to be reserved places for customers' loading/unloading: first time I had to pay 10 euros to park in the streets. We arrived a little earlier, so we asked whether we could sip our welcome cocktail waiting for the room, but we were told the welcome cocktail would be served at dinner. The room was spacious and clean, even though for sure not in a good position (facing the railway station): it happens that if you book a last minute offer you don't get the best room. But 2 things were disapponting: the very little bathroom (1 people at a time) and the missing nightstand beside the bed (see the picture); it never happened to me that one nightstand was missing!!! Then the real problem of the hotel: poor cleanliness of the common spaces. The carpets in the lifts were dirty like they were never cleaned, but worst of all the dining room: the floor was dirty and the walls got crusty, old stains of poured coffee: very disappointing. Meals were reasonably good, good breakfast, with the only deawback of a distracted staff, very busy in discussing sharply and loud among them but totally uninterested in the guests. The dinner to be honest, was the highest point: very good food, mostly fish, excellent grilled tuna steak with Tropea onions, absolutely worth it! In coclusion, the location would deserve more attention by the owner, especially about cleaning and staff professionalty; then it will be a true 4 star place
