Amazing Hotel”

We recently visited Hotel Rapallo. Upon arrival, we informed the staff that we were visiting from NZ and were going to be surprising my parents. They made sure that all of their staff were aware of the surprise and helped ensure everything went perfect (which it did). All of the staff front of house were fantastic. Always smiling, happy, welcoming as well as being happy to spend time making dinner reservations etc. A beautiful, clean, modern hotel. We had a room with a terrace balcony which was awesome. Thank you Hotel Rapallo for making our stay so special. We can't wait to visit again one day.

Lovely friendly hotel on the outskirts of Florence centre. Took us only 15 minutes to walk to the duomo area. The hotel had thought about all the little helpful details like 2 luggage racks in the room! Breakfast was a good spread with a gorgeous lemon cake. There was also free tea time with snacks and hot drinks between 5.00 and 8.00.

We had big problems with heating in the room. We asked to fix the problem at the reception and the guy told us that its going to be fixed in 5 minutes, after 1 hour he told me that he knows about the problems for 2 days and next day will come someone to fix it. We got 2 rooms in this hotel for 5 nights and 2 nights were without heating... there were 17-18* in the room and the guy from recetion told us to get in bed and get warm... not to stay in the room or take shower.

First impressions are important. Even before our trip, the response to our queries were on time and precise. They were very accommodating and very friendly. Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly and they even had our room ready at 10am when we arrived early. The room was quite big and the balcony was awesome. Did i mention the staff? They had quite a few Filipinos on-board and this really added to the homy feel of the place. If i can go back to Florence, will definitely stay here again. Thank you Hotel Rapallo!
