This charming hotel, has been in the lovely Gambero family since the 1930's. Upon arriving I was immediately welcomed by Claudio, Silvana & Lorenzo Gambero. I was pleasantly surprised when I entered my very spacious room which was very nicely decorated and very clean, and equipped with every thing I would need over the next 5 days. I immediately opened the shutters and took in one of the most stunning views across from the Tigullio Gulf. Every morning I rose to the most amazing sunrise.
The location of this hotel could not be any better or more beautiful, the promenade is just 30 steps from the lobby, lined with gorgeous Palm trees and flower gardens which made for a lovely walk every morning after enjoying a yummy breakfast buffet courtesy of the hotel. All the quaint shops & restaurants of Rapallo are within walking distance of the hotel. The hotel dining room and Hostaria Vecchia Rapallo were my two favourite restaurants, in ALL of Italy. Be sure to try the yummy pear ravioli at Massimos restaurant.
The charming Gambero' Family together with their friendly and helpful staff treated me so well, informing me of the train schedules, updating me on the weather forecast for the day, even seeing to my laundry before departing for Milan. I highly recommend this hotel, I would rate it 10 out of 10 . I am already planning my 2011 Italian vacation, back to the Charming Hotel Riviera in Beautiful Rapallo.
