About Excelsior Palace Hotel

Occupying a prime position overlooking Rapallo Bay on the Italian Riviera, the landmark Excelsior Palace Hotel is a luxurious property exuding an elegance inspired by the early 1900's.

Air-conditioned accommodations leave no stone unturned when it comes to style. Most feature balconies with breathtaking views of the Gulf, marble bathrooms with bathrobes, slippers and speciality toiletries, and seating areas with large TVs and a work desk.

Featuring a private jetty, beach club, two outdoor pools and an outdoor massage gazebo, it's no wonder guests wish they could stay longer. A fitness centre, indoor heated pool, meeting and wedding venues are also available.

Dining at the hotel's in-house restaurants promises to be a memorable affair. The year-round Lord Byron serves a tempting array of traditional cuisine, while The Eden Roc Lounge & Restaurant, open till late, serves light fare with live music.

A drive along the coast to Castello Brown, a 16th-century museum, takes around 20 minutes to reach by car from Excelsior Palace Hotel.
