I went into the BEST WESTERN Tigullio Royal in Rapallo looking for a hotel for the night and was greeted by a beautiful lady who insisted that I look at their rooms. Next day we decided to stay for another day as we were very happy with the hotel and the staff. The breakfast buffet was the best on we have had in Italy.

The location is right across the beach though it was too cold to jump in the Mediterranean when we were there. We asked the lady at the from where to go for dinner and were told that there were a little family run restaurant (Trattoria Genovese) about 3 streets away. The waiter spoke little english and we could not read the menu so we managed to communicate for him to pick a couple of dishes. The food was incredible.

Our stay in Rapallo was fantastic which is often the case if you have no prior knowledge and expectations of a place.

Did I say they have the best candies at the front counter?

Great location, staff are wonderful realy, ,dining room manger extremely nice to everyone! Dining room very nice and the food is good. The room we got was great with wonderful sea view. Wi fi is free and strong.parking cost but it's easy.
The hotel is 5 minutes walking from the train station.
Prices to our opinion are very high for this level.
If the prices were fair I would give it all excellent!
Any way it's still highly recommend!

I spent 4 nights at this hotel and have enjoyed a lot. Staff composed by very nice people, at the reception, in the restaurant, everywhere. The breakfast buffet was excellent, presenting different food and bites each day. As it was Easter, a delicious Italian "Colomba Pascal" was served every morning. It is very well located, close to the train station, the Old Town and the promenade. My apartment had a balcon with a beautiful sea view. I really recommend this hotel.

We went for a 3 day break here on the Italian Riviera. We flew into Genoa and caught the train down the coast. Brilliant place for a break. I'll talk about the hotel in a while but also the place in general. I'm not sure how this got to be the number 1 hotel in Rapallo though. I'll come back to that. First if you are flying in to Genoa. Catch the train from the 'Sestri' Train station. Get a shuttle bus or a taxi though as it's too far to walk realistically. The train will go all the way to Rapallo.

The hotel is about a 5 minute walk from the station. Less than 500 yards. If you take a taxi he will charge you about 15 Euros!! which is ridiculous. Highway robbery.

There are a great selection of bars and restaurants in the town. Loads of places to eat and drink and the shopping isn't bad either. The Hotel has no bar to speak of. Just a couple of stools at a bench. There is also no restaurant.

We booked a superior room with a Balcony. It was very nice, a good size but no drawers in the room to put anything in. Just a wardrobe. The Bathroom was fine but the bath very small and the hot water was a bit intermittent. The usual stuff in a hotel bathroom was available. There was also a Bidet.

The Hotel is conveniently located on the waterfront at one end of the shopping and bars district of the town. The town is only very small so it's in a good position. We ate at the Hostaria Vecchia which is just around the corner and excellent value and quality. We also at at the Sole Bar at the far end of the town beyond the Fort which we felt offered very poor value for what we had.

A great day trip from here is Portofino. There is a bus from near the station to the next town along the coast called Santa Margherita Ligure. You change here for the Portofino Beach bus. However you might like to walk one or both ways if you are reasonably fit. The Walk from Rapallo to Portofino is about 10km's of stunning coastline. We caught the bus and walked back to Rapallo from Santa Margherita Ligure which was brilliant. We had lunch at Ristorante Darsena which was fantastic

So in summary. The Hotel is fine. I'm not sure it warrants number one spot in Rapallo but you'll most likely be happy enough with it.

Room Tip: Get a superior room with a balcony

The location of this hotel is awesome, close to main train station and coastal ferries to Portofino. We stayed in a room with a sea view. The room was large and comfortable. Breakfast was good. Especially the staff at the breakfast were very friendly.
