              I liked the lobby and the fact that I had free wireless service there. Cleaning service was good.

              I didn't like the rooms. First they put me in a room next to the elevator, it was really small and looked old and dirty. I asked to see other rooms and finally I got one that was decent, but still did not compare to the photos they placed on Booked.net. So, future travelers, please take my advice and do NOT believe the photos!!!!!!!!! The bathroom was half a meter wide. There was no place to do anything. The streets were really noisy. I will never make the mistake of going to a downtown hotel in Italian cities. They say they keep the true Italian tradition of renaissance lodging...does that mean small, dirty and noisy???????? I would definitly choose Ibis over any three or four star hotel or worse pension in Italy.

              We completely enjoyed our stay at Hotel Rapallo. The entire staff (desk, breakfast and housekeeping) were very professional and helpful. Several reception employees went out of their way to arrange museum and tour reservations for us, assist with rental car changes and make additional telephone arrangements for tours, dinners, etc. We were very pleased with our choice and appreciated all staff efforts to make our stay so enjoyable!

              The hotel owner and receptionist Mauro were very freindly and helpful. The breakfast room server was also excellent.

              The room was advertised as reduced from 537 Euros for 3 nights, reduced to 197 E. For 197, it was ok, with the breakfast, but in no way was it a 537 value. The room was tiny with 2 small beds, and the bathroom felt like camping in a motorhome, with the shower in the corner next to the toilet and just a shower curtain that stuck to you if you moved. The location was not too far to the train station and the Duomo, so that was ok too.

              7.4

              Although budget hotel, service was if you were in a 5 star. Towels changed every day. Breakfast was ample and more than expected. Heating not restricted. Mini bar/fridge in room.

              The carpet looked 40 years old and would make an immense difference if replaced. Some of the bars holding the carpet in place on the stairs need refixing as it was a little dangerous.

              8.2

              Excellent location not far from the most important places of interest and the railway station. Very good breakfast. Helpful and polite staff.

              Close to the center train station and city center, within walking distance to the Duomo. Fairly low price for a three star hotel, good for budget travellers. Free wifi in the hotel but signal can only be detected in the reception room.

              Our room was cramp and of very old style with ''not-so-clean'' carpet on the floor. We don't even have a table in the room, so some of our stuff stayed on the tv (btw, the tv has no cable). The shower was bad in particular, with no real shower place -- there was a plastic curtain barely seperating the wash sink but you still have to bath together with your toilet!!! We were there in July and the air condition of the hotel broke down on the second day of our stay and remained broken until we left on the fifth day.

              The bathroom was not even up to 1 star standard. The shower was a "wet" area in front of the toilet. Access to bath room required squeezing through the "door" and anyone of larger girth would not have been able to squeeze through to the toilet...Bathroom totally not up to 3 star.

              Staff were helpfull.

              Absolutely nothing. Definitely do not recommend. No aircon. No working fridge. Definitely needs cleaning and a lot of tlc. Dark and dingy. Checked out after one nights stay. New manager on duty did not charge for the one uncomfortable night and was kind enough to call a taxi to another hotel we found on our walk.

              Everything above. In fact, other guests complained about the same issues but were brave enough to stay.

              The staff were friendly and helpful. The was a problem with noise as there were a group of students who were running up and down stairs until three o clock in the morning and this spolied the holiday.

              The staff at Hotel Rapallo was fantastic. They were very welcoming and had wonderful suggestions of places to dine. Molto simpatici!

              It was not that big of a deal, but it would've been nice if there was internet in the rooms. The connection in the lobby was a bit touchy too. Minor problem though.

              Old design of hotel

              The manager changed the sum from my credit card without information and took our passports for whole night without information too.
