Reviews for Excelsior Palace Hotel
This was our first trip to the Italian Riviera and I was looking for a great place to stay that would offer beautiful views and give us easy train access to other areas of this part of Italy. Rapallo and the Excelsior Palace Hotel proved to be the perfect place for us. We had a beautiful room overlooking the water and the marina. The hotel is a classic, and the staff was amazing. Daily breakfast was delicious and the wait staff was fantastic. The location was perfect for our day trips by train to Lucca, Cinque Terre, and Portofino. We ate at Eden Roc on the water one night and had the freshest and most delicious fish for two. We flew into Genoa, and found it to be an easy trip by taxi from the airport to Rapallo.

No words to describe this most awesome hotel and town! I HAVE to return! The view takes your breath away... We had the most wonderful 3 night stay at the Excelsior. Rapallo and Portofino stole my heart... Soooo beautiful. Not enough time to see everything we wanted. So more reason to come back! ðŸ˜‰
The Excelsior Palace in Rapallo is divine. The location is spectacular - near Santa Margharita and Portofino, but just enough distance away from the hustle and bustle. The hotel is gorgeous with beautiful rooms and amazing views from each room. There are 2 pools and many terraced areas to soak in the sun. All these spots have bar service as well. We were 2 couples enjoying a night in the area, but families are equally represented. The whole experience was a delight.

It was a great pleasure to stay in this fantastic hotel and feel highest possible level of hospitality provided by real Team of Professionals. There is no need to name what was good, because everything starting from arrival and finishing with so pleasant touch of attention as meal box for our way to Milano was done on the level which my family and me even could not imagine in our dreams. Llovely dinners both in Eden Rock and Lord Byron restaurants will stay in our hearts foever! Yes, the Hotel is not cheap. But our life is so short that we can not allow to waste it for chip stuff. Here you see and feel for what you are paying and belive me it cost its rates. Thank you Excelsior Palace! Thank You Aldo for managing the Team! Thank you Marco for your advises regarding dishes and wine!

We stayed a week at this hotel. Room was nice & spacious with a lovely sea view. Staff were excellent, nothing was too much trouble for them. For example, we did not like the orange juice at breakfast, so they brought us freshly squeezed every day at no extra cost. A small gesture maybe, but these things make a difference. The restaurant food was very good if rather expensive! However the Thursday evening buffet was great value & not to be missed. We found the restaurants in Rapallo expensive & very average so ended up dining in the hotel most nights. Lovely beach club, infinity pool was great, & had easy access for swimming in the sea. Hotel is well positioned, only 10 minute walk to centre of town. It is without doubt the best hotel in Rapallo, well done to all the staff!
