Reviewed 22 May 2011

was skeptic at the beginning because of the hotel category (1 star) in some places 1 star hotels are avoided because of their position and not welcoming environment but this one turned out to be a really good one.

Location: In front of a parking lot and secondary street of the city that connects the city beach promenade (very close to the Rapallo castle) and pedestrian area. Walking distance: less than 5 minutes. I would say the position is excellent.

Structure: A white Victorian terraced building but very well maintained, the ground floor entrance was simple and clean (not scary like in some other places) The “hotel” is composed by some apartments of the 2nd and 3rd floors, the rest of the apartments of the building are occupied privately. The reception is located on the 2nd floor, small, welcoming, cutely and cozy decorated (mainly old stuff but well kept, vintage).

Parking facilities: The “hotel” itself doesn't have a parking lot but in front of the building there is a major parking lot and the costs were reasonable (one whole day (24 hours) is around 13,00 euros, considering that is a touristic area; have heard of other hotels in the city that they charge from 10,00 to 20,00 euros per night; near Portofino a hotel charges 35,00 euros just for the night (from 8:00 p.m. till 8:00 a.m.)

Rooms: We had a large room (we're a couple and a small child) this room suites perfectly for a family of 5; the main bed (queen size I think in reality was 2 singles pushed together) plus 2 single beds; the bathroom inside the room is an installed cabinet (originally this was just a room so modifications have been made) complete almost of everything (towels, toilet paper, hairdryer) very simple cabinets for clothes, small tv, nice classic chairs, mosaics floor type and ornamented ceilings (renewed) I think that other rooms were smaller (check their website). Everything was well cleaned.

Breakfast facilities: Beside the reception. Small tables (everything in the room is old style (but cute) They serve fresh croissants, one-serving toasts, marmalades, bread, coffee, juice, tea just simple continental breakfast.

Service: Family owned hotel.

Last comments: Rather than hotel is more like a bed and breakfast. Originally we wanted to stay in Santa Margherita Ligure or Portofino but we couldn't find anything under 100,00 euros (both mentioned towns are ports-of-call for cruiseships) we were glad that we decided to move on and happy that this town Rapallo, is beautiful as the others (not glamorous like Portofino) not full of cruiseship passengers and subsequently not so expensive like the others!
