    The staff were really excellent - really helpful, both with information and with parking the car in their garage. The quality of the refurbishment work that has been undertaken is also excellent - everywhere had been decorated to a high standard, was exceptionally clean, and all the fixtures and fittings were of a high standard,

  • Family with children

    Having seen some very poor reviews we were a little apprehensive prior to out stay. However, the hotel has undergone a complete refurbishment and is now excellent. Our room and bathroom were bright, airy and clean and plenty big enough for us and our 10 month old daughter. The staff, especially Lorenzo, could not have been more friendly or welcoming. Breakfast was a good typical continental breakfast with plenty of choices and was very fresh. The hotel is very easy to find from the station and is 10 minutes walk at most with bags but you do need to know where you are going as there are lots of roads leading from the station. There is a lovely little park next to the hotel which is rare in Florence. I cannot think of a bad thing to say about this hotel or staff and would highly recommend it.

    Our stay at Hotel Rapallo was great., Staff was really kind. I strongly recommend.

    We stayed at the Hotel Rapallo while we were in Florence due to reading so many wonderful reviews about the hotel, and needless to say it did not disappoint. The hotel has recently been redone and is super modern and very very clean. During the rest of our honeymoon we stayed in 4 and 5 star hotels; the hotel rapallo could easily get away with being a 4 or 5 star hotel. Its is a very comfortable hotel to stay in at a very reasonable price. Second, it is very close to all the sites you are going to want to see but just one or two blocks off the main square so you still feel like you have an ounce of privacy. Unless you have a very hard time walking and need to be literally right next to the duomo I would highly recommend this hotel as the extra block or two of walking is very easy and well worth it. The staff is extremely helpful, more than willing to make phone calls to restaurants, help you with sites, or do anything you need. I would highly recommend the Hotel Rapallo to anyone going to Florence.

    Hotel Rapallo was a pleasant surprise. The hotel was clean and recently renovated. Our room was spacious. The staff was friendly and helpful.

  • Older travelers

    This is a lovely hotel. Everything about it, from the extremely friendly and helpful staff to the complementary tea, coffee and cakes in the lounge area in the afternoon are very welcoming. It's in a good location, within walking distance of both the railway station and the main tourist area. Can't recommend this highly enough.
