This is probably one of the best hotels in Genova (Italian spelling). I have just returned from a mid-week stay and would definitely recommend it for the following reasons:
It dates back to the 1800's and has been restored nicely (there was once direct access to the station)
It is within 100 meters of the main station Genova Principe
The staff are very intuitive & helpful, speak very good English and are readily available at all times.
The Spa is very relaxing with various different rooms and treatments available
The beds & linen are some of the most comfortable I have used (better than a Sheraton hotel!)
Competitive room rates can be found on line (£80 a night via otels.com)
Children's play area with Pirate theme
Dating back to the 1800's with many famous names in their guest books the hotel retains some of its original glamour, high ceilings, chandeliers, long drape curtains and floor to ceiling mirrors. Most rooms have a small Juliet balcony, we where in room 406 and it directly faced the train station. There is no noise from other rooms or outside (although the hotel was not very full) There are three lifts and many function rooms. The hotel looks like it is used quite a lot for businesses as it has good facilities. I would say its brilliant for any type of stay even a family one as there is a brilliant outside playground. We did not have breakfast here but the room service menu was very reasonably priced with a traditional pesto pasta dish at around 12 euro.
WiFi was available via a code given to you at reception. The Sky channels are limited to only 3/4 English ones. The showers where very powerful and temperature was easily to control. Toiletries are available but a little word of warning if you are one of the rare few who relies on these the conditioner is pretty useless and is more like a soap.
