Excelsior Palace Hotel

Excelsior Palace Hotel

Facing the bay of Rapallo to the east and the headland of Portofino to the west, the unique setting of Excelsior Palace Hotel has inspired a return to the elegance of the early 1900s. Guestrooms and suites boast views of the stunning Gulf of Tigullio. Don't miss the Beach Club for its two panoramic swimming pools, or Eden Roc Lounge & Restaurant, with its sea-view terraces. Be sure to spend time in the Health & Fitness Club, for its gym and indoor swimming pool, and the spa, for personalized treatments. There are many leisure activities to pursue and curious nooks to discover throughout the hotel’s brightly lit spaces.

Hotel Tip

Don’t miss the jetty at the hotel’s Beach Club. Some of the exclusive options — aperitif at sunset overlooking Portofino, a day boat excursion to the Cinque Terre or boat rides in the Tigullio Gulf.

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.
