Excelsior Palace is exceptional in accommodation and professional staff managing and serving guests. I had my birthday and the manager sent me an invitation to "yachting bar" where a surprise was waiting for me. I appreciate so much the excellence all the way to the end. We will return soon.

Birthday present for my mom, we had a wonderful stay. Staff upgraded my parents to a bigger room with outstanding sea view and offered us drinks to celebrate. Infinite pool overlooking the sea was splendid and we also enjoyed the spa facilities on the second day, raining outside. It was magical and we certainly recommend it! Pure Italian wonder!

I was pleasantly surprised by the Excelsior Palace Hotel. It was one of the few hotels I have stayed in that was actually better than my expectations of it. It was like stepping back in time to an era of glamourous sophistication and extravagance. Often these old hotels are a tired and worn version of what they used to be...

Everything was cold. We even ordered instead of the buffet thinking we would get warm eggs but they came to us cold also. The staff was not as warm and...

I stayed for 2 nights by myself enroute to Milan and I'm so glad I did. The hotel is a short walk from the main town. I was in an Exclusive Double Seaview room with a balcony. The room was very large and the décor lovely. The Lord Byron restaurant was wonderful as was the breakfast. I didn't spend much...

Set overlooking Rapallo this is a very special place yo stay. The public spaces are vast and filled with interesting things. It is spotlessly clean with friendly staff.
