We had such a good time in our five day trip to Italy, and much of it was thanks to the excellent hotel we stayed at. Every morning we enjoyed a family swim in the warm inside pool, before a very generous breakfast. Staff looked after us so well, they remembered our favourite choices and came prepared with a high chair before we had a chance to ask for it. Very romantic stay, the restaurant within the hotel is top class.

Our stay at the Excelsior impressed us quite a bit, from the elaborate breakfast to the careful attention paid to cleanliness. We were even loaned an umbrella when we walked to a restaurant in the rain. A few minutes of walking brings you to restaurants, a beach, train station and Rapallo center.

We drive rather frequently between Provence and Rome. A stopover here turns a business trip into pleasure. I love stepping back into the Old World elegance of the past. Everything about this hotel , from the recently updated rooms to the classic and delicious Ligurian presentations of the restaurant make a business stopover into a pampering treat. The art and decoration is evocative through and through. Winter low season rates make it even better. And the best? The incredible views if the Italian Riviera.

Stayed here three times in the past two months. This is one of the remaining classic grand hotels of its time. There is nothing to dislike unless you prefer boutique or modern style. Excellent service from bellboy to restaurant, bar, maids and spa. Easy parking, spacious rooms, great views. close to town and absolutely fair pricing. You can't go wrong with this hotel.

Location to the restaurants and seaside is perfect. Views from hotel, either on the port or inland are perfect. Reception staff are very helpful. Parking available. Good breakfast. Rooms have a jacuzzi, balconies and huge beds.
