When you go to Italy, the Excelsior Palace Hotel is a great find, offering excellent value and service in Rapallo, one of Italy’s most popular resort areas. The grand turn-of-the-century Excelsior Palace, set on a piece of prime waterfront land on the Italian Riviera, has been restored and is now excellent choice for those looking for romantic yet reasonably priced accommodations overlooking the Mediterranean.
Marble halls are punctuated with huge vases of fresh flowers; a grand health club features spacious granite baths, most of the bedrooms and suites boast balconies and a view of the sea through large gliding glass door, rooms are more spacious than many of the pricier digs in the area.
The Yachting Bar and dining rooms flow out on the lovely terrace with its white balustrades, candlelight, and wrought-iron tables and chairs, a perfect place to sip your Pelligrino or Campari while gazing out at the deep blue water and the yachts riding at anchor in Rapallo Bay.
