Amazing area of Italy

The town of Rapallo is an excellent area to stay when visiting the towns in Cinque Tera, Portofino and Comolia.It is a short train ride or a cab away to all of these towns. Best of all the Excelsior is the best hotel in the are to stay. It is walking distance to the center of towm with great shops and restaurants.

A classic property in every sense

Spent three days here attending a conference and the experience was excellent from check-in to check-out.

Very competent staff, friendly and helpful, an excellent room (exceptionally clean and well-appointed), and great facilities (heated outdoor pool overlooking the Mediterranean for example), made the trip a huge success.

Also impressed with the food (breakfast) and bar staff.

Thoroughly recommended.

Ups and downs

We love this hotel and have been there many times but must admit that this time, we struggled a bit.
What we liked
- location and view: beautiful
- staff at reception: really nice
- check-in / check out / car service: very professionally done

Where we were a bit disappointed
- breakfast: both choice as well as service: below expectations given this is a five star hotel (cereal/Müsli corner for exmple, choice of fruits, quality orange juice etc.) I am not saying it was bad, just very very average and definitely not 5 stars
- Hotel is getting older and one can see this ...... quite old-fashioned in the meantime, especially the bath rooms (just watch the doors). Also furniture is very antique ....
- Prices are on the very high side, but this is Rapallo/Portfofino. So be it
