Excellent hotel wtih a very nice beach arrangement. Beautiful interior, tol service. Only "negative" experience was that the beach club with the access to the sea opened only at 9 so I could not take my morning bath before breakfast.

This hotel provides what is so often missing these days, service , and we got it from the moment we arrived, from the yound man who got our luggage and went to park the car to the charming lady who checked us in and took us to our room.Our stay was short but we would certainly stay there again if we come to that part of Italy.

THE EXCELSIOR PALACE IS A VERY WELL LOCATED HOTEL IN RAPALLO, BUT THE ONLY THING YOU HAVE TO ASK FOR, IS A ROOM WITH SEA VIEW. ALL THE REST FACILITIES ARE EXCELLENT.!!!

This should be a 4 star hotel, not a 5 star. The location is a solid 20 minutes from Portofino by car, and there is nothing to see in Rapallo or within short walking distance. Although the pool & spa are nice, they are not spectacular and any other activities are an expensive taxi ride away. I have stayed in many 5 star hotels in Italy and this is not one of them, and I will not be recommending it in the future. If the cost were 20-30% less, I might feel differently, but it is very over-priced for what it is. It also has a bit of a corporate convention atmosphere.

Very good! Magnificent views (ask for corner room), but is situated over a busy road (lots of bikes at nighttime). Nice sundecks on 4 levels. The food on the premises is rather dull. But overall - a nice place to stay at a quorter of price you would pay in Portofino.
