This is an Apart-Hotel style property close to the old town of Genova (Genoa), the main hotel block has 4 lovely high ceilinged, Italian modern furnished... More

I should have known when my credit card was hacked when I made the booking on their web site that this was not going to end well. So many things, where to I start. *Great location but difficult to find. *Rooms are partly furnished in a lovely manner but then quirky - like mine has a kitchen table. *Towels -... More

Google maps is a great way to find this little gem in the heart of Genoa. There is no car park and access is via a pedestrian area. We found parking easily enough a short distance from the hotel. Reception is a small enough area on the 1st floor. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was at the... More

Nice smaller hotel in an old building in the middle of town. nice rooms with very high ceilings. because of the lack of curtains can be a bit noisy. Good beds and friendly staff. I booked through booking.com and breakfast was not included. breakfast is an extra 10 euro per day.

Arriving by taxi to a pedestrian area of 'Old Town Genoa,' a charming small piazza, the driver pointed to an unmarked door in an old building on a... More

The hotel is in a perfect location for site seeing locally and also the rest of the Liguria region.Just opposite the San Lorenzo cathedral. The hotel has been beautifully restored, with all the existing seventeenth features adding to the charm.

I want to like this hotel and rate it well. I really do. The location opposite the cathedral in the centre of Genoa couldn't be better, and is so convenient. I like the contrast of the modern white minimalist styling with the stucco and shutters of the old palazzo, which I think works well. The bed was a little firm... More
