Rapallo is a good base for the Cinque Terre and the Vesuvio a wonderful place to stay. Luciano and his staff were very helpful and welcoming. Such a pretty view from our front balcony. The ferry was across the road and the train a short walk. Shopping is varied and entertaining. Our hotel room was very comfortable.

We stayed 3 nights at hotel Vesuvio (3 couples) and we cannot speak more highly of the hotel. The room was spacious, quiet (when balcony doors closed) spotlessly clean, simply decorated, with an amazing sea-view from our balcony.

Ask for Luciano, the ever-smiling and ever-helpful receptionist in this hotel. He had been so kind to us that this is a real plus to the qualification of this hotel. Due to the Giro d'Italia car parking in front of the hotel on the Corniche was not allowed, Luciano immediately offered his help and moved our car to a safe... More

We stayed 5 nights here (4 couples traveling together) in May, 2014. We all had sea-view rooms, which gave us tremendous views of the bay, boat harbor, and promenade. The rooms are fresh and airy with balconies. The rooms were maintained impeccably. The owners, Luciano and Marta, were extremely helpful to us all. Some of our families were from Genoa... More

Spent 4 days here over easter with our 3 kids. We had a family room- with one double room with balcony and a small room with 2 beds. The breakfast was good, service from the reception was great. Rooms are clean and the location is very good - within walking distance to everything.

If you had a choice to stay in Genova or elsewhere along the Italian Riviera, try Rapallo and this hotel. It's a good base to visit Genova, Cinque Terre or Portofino. Away from the typical towns visited by tourists and celebrity haunts, Rapallo offers a nice medium and its own charms with the beauty of the sea closeby. A five... More
