Got a very good deal with Voyage Prive to stay here. Nice clean, comfortable room and the huge bed was excellent. Yes, as others have mentioned, you can hear the trains but, hey, small price to pay for the lovely sea view! Had a very nice meal in the restaurant one night - fab view at sundown. Arrived late so...

Ferry rides to Portofino and other coastal towns...within 20 to 30 minutes...all of them are so pretty. I highly recommend Rapallo and the Grand Bristol hotel. Forgot to mention 10 minute bus ride...which leaves...

My partner and I stayed for 4 nights on a Voyage Prive deal towards the end of March, in a superior sea view room. Positives: The view from our room across the harbour was brilliant, though it was slightly obstructed by a crane but this clearly isn't in the hotel's control. Breakfast was tasty (especially the focaccia) and the staff...

Dear Sir, Thank you for your review and informed that his room was the Deluxe and Superior rooms do not. The exposed critical turn out to be a feature for the Liguria Region, in fact, the train runs along the coast, while the conditioned area is still off because we have to respect the dates for the law.

We stayed here one night. Had a sea view room which was really nice. Front desk staff who checked us in was very helpful. Breakfast buffet was fine but nothing special. Room was a really good size for two people. Bit of a walk or 5 mins drive to the main town where all the restaurants and shops are. Aircon...

We booked a 3 night stay through Voyage Prive UK. We had a superior room on the 4th floor - fabulous views & tastefully furnished. The service from all members of staff could not be faulted. The spa was lovely although the Jacuzzi was too small & too cold but the sauna & steam rooms were excellent & large. Our...

Booked 3 nights through an online reservations system. Upon arrival we noticed that our room which was close to the elevator wasn't well isolated and each time the elevator stoped on our floor it made some noise.

There are things to like about the Grand Hotel Bristol: it has a spectacular view and a good location, I found the bed comfortable and the shower effective. But the positives are balanced by one major flaw: no hotel that awards itself the soubriquet 'grand' should be charging extra for internet access in the 21st century. I haven't stayed in...

Beautiful rooms with sea view, staff helpful and polite. Breakfast the best we have had any where with impeccable service. Drinks and food in hotel very expensive but then the whole area is.
