This is a wonderful boutique hotel with an excellent location within Rapallo, only a few minutes walk to the harbor. We have stayed at Hotel San Desiderio several times and every time we go back, it never disappoints. The room is always nice and cold when we arrive, and there is

This was a wonderful hotel/hostel in the heart of Rapallo. The owner was a lovely man and went out of his way to help you with what you wanted. Breakfast was nice, good selection, the outdoor seating area was also lovely. The rooms were so nicely furnished and little touches

We stayed for 3 nights in the San Desiderio to explore the area with Portofino and the Cinque Terre. The hotel is a very short walk from the Harbour pier to Portofino away. We enjoyed the relaxed and friendly atmosphere that Marco and Filippo created.

This is a small hotel with the best personal service that one can get. The hotel is located in a small narrow ally, about 550 meters from Rapallo train station. It runs by a couple of friends. Marco was very helpful and patient. He provide any assistance needed. The facility is

Dear Marathon308, thank you very much for your kind review. It's a pleasure for me and for Filippo to provide the best possible service, in order to make our guests feel comfortable and "at home" Our rooms are all individually decorated, our repeat guests know that no two rooms are alike. Filippo likes to decorate and we invite guests to come back and discover what has changed in the meantime. Some spaces in our hotel are "intimate", the elevator has been introduced in the building in recent years, but every detail has been thought in order to make even these spaces as comfortable and homey as possible. Next time we'll be glad to provide you with an accommodation with a more linear design. Arrivederci a Rapallo, Marco, Filippo & Idefix

Dear Gloria, thank you for your kind request. Our hotel features one parking space that can be booked at the daily rate of Euro 10,00 and it is along Via Della Libertà, the main road that leads to the sea from the motorway exit, opposite the entrance of Via Privata San Desiderio (15 meters from the hotel entrance). We also feature free parking permissions, to be shown on the windscreen of your car, that allow to park without restrictions in the vicinity of the hotel, where there are time restricted areas (1 hour) or residents places (with yellow stripes). Please let us know the dates you are planning to come to Rapallo and we'll be glad to check the availability of both solutions. Filippo and I (and our dog Idefix) remain at your disposal and we look forward to welcoming you soon to Hotel San Desiderio. Kind regards, Marco

Gentilissimo Ciro, La ringraziamo della richiesta. Arrivando con l'auto, possiamo indicarvi come zone a 5 minuti a piedi dove poter parcheggiare senza restrizioni: Via Rosselli, Via Amendola, Piazza Cile (zona a destra della pizzeria lo Scugnizzo, dove non appare ZONA DISCO) e il piazzale fra la chiesa di Sant'Anna e il Campo Sportivo di Via Della Libertà. Sconsigliamo di entrare con la macchina in Via Privata San Desiderio perché è una strada stretta e senza uscita. Per scaricare il bagaglio suggeriamo di sostare temporaneamente in Via Della Libertà (il lungo viale che dal casello dell'autostrada di Rapallo scende al mare), nei pressi dell'imboccatura di Via Privata San Desiderio, vi forniremo quindi le indicazioni sulle zone dove poter parcheggiare nelle vicinanze. Filippo, io e il cagnolone Idefix rimaniamo a disposizione per ogni informazione necessaria. Cordiali saluti, Marco Hotel San Desiderio

Buon giorno gradirei conoscere la distanza dalla stazione grazie
Gentilissimo Giuliano, grazie mille della cortese richiesta. Siamo molto vicini alla stazione di Rapallo, 10 minuti a piedi: quando si esce dalla stazione consigliamo di prendere Corso Italia (il viale che rimane leggermente a destra della stazione e che passa davanti al Duomo di Rapallo e al grande magazzino OVS) e proseguire fino all'incrocio con il semaforo. All'incorcio si gira a destra e si prosegue per 200 metri fino ad arrivare sul lato destro al "Beer and Wine Pub", all'angolo del pub c'è Via Privata San Desiderio, dove ci troviamo noi. Filippo, io e il cagnolone Idefix rimaniamo a Sua disposizione. Cordiali saluti, Marco Hotel San Desiderio

Gentilissima Rossella, grazie mille della richiesta. Ci troviamo a 5 minuti a piedi dalla piacevole passeggiata mare di Rapallo. La spiaggia a Rapallo è molto ridotta ed è ulteriormente ridotta dalla prossima riapertura dei bagni Flora e Lido. Noi consigliamo di andare a piedi fino a San Michele di Pagana, una passeggiata gradevole di circa 15/20 minuti, dove c'è più spiaggia libera e anche l'acqua del mare è più limpida e pulita. Filippo, io e il cagnolone Idefix rimaniamo a disposizione. Cordiali saluti, Marco

Bonjour Caracol59, nous vous remercions de votre requête et nous vous informons que pour la voiture nous disposons d'une place parking face à l'entrée de Via Privata San Desiderio, qu'il est possible de réserver au tarif de 10,00 € par jour, ou bien de permis gratuit à mettre sous le parebrise de la voiture qui permet de garer sans limitations dans les places publiques à disc horaire (ligne blanche) ou dans les places pour résidents ZSL à ligne jaune proches de l'hôtel. Filippo et moi (et le chien Idefix) nous sommes à votre disposition et nous espérons vous accueillir bientôt à l'Hôtel San Desiderio. Bien cordialement, Marco

"Ask for away from the main road, as that's fairly busy."
"We were on the 2nd floor, but think all floors would be the same. I found it very quiet, very little, if any street noise, although we ran A/C 24/7 which may have drowned out noise. But this is a small village and not a lot of action going on in the evening that we saw."
"A little hard to find so ask for good directions"
