“Nice modern hotel - Excellent value for money”
Reviewed 13 June 2010

Who says one can't get a full experience of Genova's old harbor and its "caruggi" with the comfort of free wi-fi and nice, contemporary amenities?
The Best Western Porto Antico provides just that and then some, both for the business traveller and families.
The staff is friendly and always helpful and the location extremely convenient.

Only one little nuisance, but not really imputable to the hotel itself (more to the positioning of the building): if you're in the lobby, or in a room lower than the 5th floor, you can basically say goodbye to cell phone signal with ANY Italian carriers.

The single rooms can be really tiny but you never get the feeling of being crammed.

Overall, highly recommended.

We arrive late at 9:00. Check in was quick and they gave us a nice room with a king size bed and bunk beds for the kids. Breakfast was nice and we had no problem finding seats at 8:00 .The location could not have been better. We walked a block to the aquarium and followed signs to the chuch and columbus house. The hotel stored our bags until 2:00 and called a taxi for us to the port. We would defiantly stay here again and we would reccomend it to any of our friends.

The hotel in is the very center of the old harbor, in a strategic position. It is clean and the service very friendly. Wifi is for free in every room, breakfast is good.

This hotel worked really well for us. It has the original exterior but the interior has been newly refurbished. There is no parking on site but there are preferential rates at the parking station near the Marina Porto Antico which is just over the road, and a loading bay across from the hotel (although you'll need directions to get in as the street is more pedestrian access than vehicle).

Rates were great including breakfast (pretty good continental breakfast) and internet. Rooms were simple but comfortable and modern. They offer family rooms (king bed and bunks) so you can avoid the usual extra charges that other hotels throw on families.

Location was excellent. We spent every day roaming around the old city on foot and the port - never having to use the car or transport once.

The location is perfect to visit the old city of Genoa. In addition the hotel offers a very nice breakfast with plenty of choices. They make it very easy for family with young children. Many rooms have bunk beds and the decoration is very neat.
