Rapallo

Rapallo, Tuscany Italy

★    ★   ★

An unelaborate but pleasant enough family-run establishment offering friendly, comfortable accommodation – though some may find it slightly dated. Located in a handy spot for some of the city attractions, but feels a little removed for those in search of the riverside action, such as the Ponte Vecchio. Its pavement-level entrance and having a lift servicing the building would suit the infirm. Private garage parking available for a charge.

Exterior

Slightly tired-looking terrace building with a few ornate wrought-iron protruding balconies, wooden window shutters and a level entrance off the pavement.

Property type: Hotel

Storeys: 4

Interior

The comfortable but slightly dated interior has a medley of styles – consisting of a small intimate wooden reception desk, a large carpeted breakfast room housing traditional furnishings with a small adjoining 24hr bar. A dimly-lit, contemporary-style lounge with sofa bench-like seating and some green plants at one end slightly resembles a waiting room.

Rooms: 27
