I stayed here in end October as a stopover from my travel from Tuscany to Nice and the weather was still terrific. Advice and recommendations from the owner is spot on. We walked from the hotel to the restaurant he recommended in SML - the walk can be a little unnerving at first as a portion of the sidewalk wasn't paved but it is really not a big deal. We were rewarded with the best meal we had for our entire trip. We wanted to catch a bus back after meals and drinks but couldn't manage that. We do not speak/read italian so do get info in advance if you plan on taking bus back from SML. I am sure the owner/staff in the hotel will be happy to help.
The room in L'Approdo is big (for what we paid for) for Italian standards with a spacious balcony and excellent sea view. The room is spotless too. Both the owner and service staff were friendly and helpful, the kind you wish to have in every hotel. Breakfast is included in our room prices and I am delighted to have warm eggs on top of european style cold breakfast.
We took cab to/from the hotel from Rapallo and to SML train station. Cost approx 15eur. SML is slightly nearer and cheaper. We love SML as it's beautiful and feels so serene after we visit venice, rome and florence. I even like it better than Nice. No doubt L'Approdo will be our choice again in Rapallo/SML.
