What more can I add to the long list of very satisfied members? Riccardo and his team have got it just right. Breakfast was an excellent selection of cereal, cheese, ham, bread, pastries, fresh fruit, juices, tea and coffee. Spotlessly clean everywhere. Well furnished and equipped rooms-plenty of clothes hangers, shower gel provided, fantastic view from top floor. Free, easy...

I have wonderful memories of our recent stay at Hotel L'Approdo. I decided to stay there based on the nice reviews on this website, and I wasn't disappointed. The hotel was nice and modern, decorated in a classy, minimalist way. Crisp white is the main theme, with hints of dark brown wood, and the odd splash of blue. No Italian...

What a great place to stay. The styling of the hotel is really beautiful, everything is so white and smart and the views from the balcony are lovely. Even though addressed Rapallo, it is much much closer to Santa Margherita Ligure so choose this for train connections. The hotel staff were magnificent. So helpful, friendly and warm. We really couldn't...

We spent four days in this super hotel, it's tucked into the side of the hill and very much detached from any noisy neighbours, but amazingly it's a short walk to the town centre and even closer to to the stony beach...all the rooms have seaviews acrose the bay, each with a balcony with plenty of room to sit outside...

We stayed 2 nights here and wish it had been longer. The rooms were very clean and it's worth the upgrade to get a room with a view. We had the 4th floor and it was wonderful to sit on the roomy balcony and take in the view. They had a wonderful patio that we ordered coffee, surfed the web...

My husband and I, along with our 11 month old baby, stayed here for 2 nights from May 23-24, 2007. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer! This may sound like an exageration but staying here was probably the best hotel experience we've ever had. We've stayed in hundreds of really nice hotels, but what set this one...

Stayed at the L'Approdo for 2 nights on our way to the Lakes. The hotel is situated in the San Michele are of Rapallo and is actually far closer to Santa Margherita being only a 10 minutes walk, the first 200 metres has no pavement but was reaspnable safe as the traffic seems to be used to people walking. As...

L'Approdo was my favorite hotel of all the hotels I stayed during my time in Europe. The hotel is very "Armani casa" with clean lines and modern decor. All the staff were friendly and helpful and really made an effort to know us and make our stay comfortable. Our room is rather large by European standards with plenty of hot...

I must have stayed at the hotel while the previous reviewer did and experienced virtually the same excellent experience. Almost all rooms have ocean views, while the rooms on the top floor are smaller but have the best unobstructed views to the sea over the trees. The 4th floor rooms are smaller due to a large deck with chairs. Rooms...
