We were really undecided about staying at this hotel because of all the mixed reviews. We made the wrong decision. I don't know how anyone could think this place was great or even just ok. Our room was disgusting and depressing to be in. We did have a nice view but the room itself needs serious updating. The paint was...

We just returned from Italy and stayed at the Hotel Continental. The hotel is very nice and the grounds are lovely. The staff was extremely helpful. Our room and bath were spacious and the view from our balcony was breathtaking. We enjoyed lunch at the outside restaurant near the water. The short walk into town was a perfect length to...

Hotel on top of hill so allow for bit of a climb(5 mins). That means that the views are spectacular. Reception staff and all other staff...

Stayed here for 3 days before going to cinque terre and toscany. Loved the grounds of the hotel and the area around the sea. Bit weird that you have to pay for the beds at the sea when being a guest...also no service around the sea area untill we asked them. Rooms are nice but could do with un update....

My husband and I stayed here for four nights on our honeymoon. We were extremely happy with our choice. We loved the town, which was in walking distance from the hotel. Our room was nice, but the view from the room is what sold us. It was incredible. The hotel is really close to the water and the beach was...

My family and I stayed here for three nights, we booked two sea view rooms and were not disappointed. We had two beautiful rooms next door to each other on the top floor, both with private balconies. The views are exceptional. The staff are very friendly and helpful, we enjoyed our bar man from Rapallo who made us our coffee...

I booked this after reading other positive reviews on Trip Advisor. It was very expensive (even for the off season in October) but it was certainly worth it. There are two top floor rooms that each have a huge deck with stunning views over the harbor and ocean. Try to get one. These rooms are built into an Attic space...

Spent 2 nights at the Continental after a week in Tuscany. Booked a double with seaview direct with the hotel in advance so was disappointed to be given a room in the annexe over the garage (No. 70). The hotel itself is very nice, classy and stylish with the most fabulous views and pretty gardens with terraces down to the...

My husband and I stayed here for three days, the room was not ready when we got there(an hour early) so they suggested we sit in the restaurant which offered a beautiful view of the Mediterranean. The waiter did not give us a menu he just listed off what we could order, so we had no idea what the prices...
