“Vintage hotel, convenient located”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

Spent 3 nights in the room 318.
Pros: the hotel is very convenient located, in the Verdi square, just in front of the Central Rail Station. A nice park with impressive Mediterranean pine trees is located near by. The Old City Centre is 10 minutes walk from the hotel, as well as the waterfront and the beaches. The harbour is also not far away.
The room was large and clean, furbished with massive, vintage furniture. The bed was okay, the lighting and ventilation worked fine. The window was large, overlooking the street.
The street noise was almost absent - very good phonic insulation.
Various maps, museum guides and other tourist magazines and brochures were available at the reception.
Great coffee for breakfast!
Cons:
The shower cabin was quite tiny.
Very strange location of the toilet seat: just in the bathroom's corner, almost under the sink. The access to the toilet seat was obstructed by the bidet. I managed to use the toilet seat by keeping my legs under the sink, after sneaking between the bidet and sink (see the picture that I took in the bathroom)
Breakfast: not so many choices. For example, they offer low fat plain yoghurt or fruits yoghurt but not normal (regular) plain yoghurt. However, you can manage to have an English breakfast (scrambled eggs, fried bacon and tea), an Italian breakfast (coffee, cakes, Nutella) or a French breakfast (croissant, butter, jam, marmalade) or a healthy one (fruit juice, cereals), but if you have to stay many days, don't expect much variety.

All in all, it was a good experience, I would like to stay here again.

Had gone to Genova for an official visit and landed in Moderno Verdi for 1 week. Though a small entrance which you can easily miss it is situated at an excellent location, bang opposite the main line station and. As you get inside it give a feeling of ancient Italy. We had a twin room which was quite spacious and cosy. The room was very clean and tidy. The breakfast was good but had a limited spread for vegetarians. The staff is quite friendly and very helpful too. The WiFi works in the reception area only, in the rooms you can connect thru the cable provided by the hotel so it was not much of a trouble. Overall a good hotel.

A typical Italian hotel; slightly staid but offering everything you need and very clean.
We were able to park our car in the underground car park for 15€ the night. The hotel is well situated opposite a main line station and just 7 mins walk from the ancient town and the port.The rooms has very comfortable beds, 2 english channels on the TV, good shower, good towels. Breakfast was good. The only draw back is no wifi in the rooms, but there is free wifi in the reception and bar, so all is not lost. Excellent value for money. We would use the hotel again.

We ended up in the middle of Genova with a car and no idea, but wandered around and found this hotel which had parking under and a great price for the room and breakfast included. Train station fifty metres away and walking distance to everything, the harbour, historic sights and old Genova, very seedy but interesting. We actually only intended on staying a few nights, but this city and hotel grow on you, it's an amazing port city built on layers with so much beautiful architecture and history and great restaurants, we stayed for 5 nights. Breakfast was fantastic, coffee was excellent, and you could have a few so that was the essential start to the day. WiFi was available but only in the lobby, the bar in the lobby was great. Genova is a secret, not a major tourist place so everything seems cheaper than anywhere else, it may be my imagination...... Surprisingly we loved it for a city and I am not that fond of cities.

Booked this hotel as there was a discounted price. The hotel was well located in the centre of the city. The service was good and the bedroom very cosy. The only problem was the car park. So tiny I could barely park the car in the garage.

Very centrally located (opposite train station the airport bus) hotel, with soundproofed rooms, aircon, a very comfortable bed, tv and minibar. The hotel decoration is stylish early 20th century (but not with original details: it is all fake, but everything is in good condition). There is free wifi in the hall/lobby and in your room you can connect via a cable. The restaurant serves a standard italian breakfast, with great coffees, and is open for dinner (and stayed an hour or so longer open when guests arrived late). I can recommend it.

Stayed for two nights, great hotel, right by the main railway station (Brignole), free Internet service available in the rooms and in the lobby. Nice room, bathroom, clean and a great location. Only thing that could be improved was the breakfast, otherwise very pleased.
