About Us

Uniquely located, on the bay of Rapallo to the east and overlooking the Portofino Coast to the west, the Excelsior Palace Hotel has been restored to its turn-of-the-century glory when it formed an obligatory staging-post for the international beau monde.

Great location. Great room on 2nd floor (tho small). Great service and concierge, Algelo, particularly helpful. Eden Rock location, view, menu and staff very good and made our experience enjoyable. Yacht Bar beautiful, and serivce friendly and excellent. I HATE smoking, even outside, and a smioker next to us at our last Eden Rock lunch was nasty! Guests who have beach privilege towel and chaise should be warned at check in to be sure to bring the card to the beach area. We had to go back to the room to get it -- a hike! I'd prefer to have FREE WiFi in the room, as with the prices charged per night, paying additionally seemed quite "cheap." We work at night due to time cchnage in the US, so going to a free spot in a public area of the hotel was not attractive, Most 5 star hotels in the US and in Europe had free WiFi. We'll come back.

We loved this hotel. On arrival they upgraded us to a Suite - very luxurious to have so much space for a 5 night stay. We overlooked the Sea and were able to swim out the front of the Hotel. The amenities were beautiful - beach club, pool, gym, spa treatments. Train station was very close and so was the town (5 minute walk downhill). Staff were very helpful and friendly. A short walk away was a ferry to Portofino. Access to the Cinque Terre was by rail - very easy. So glad we stayed here - it was superb. (Again, thank you Patricia).
