“Very good hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013

Had a lovely stay here for my surprise birthday treat. Our room was clean, spacious and I didn't notice any noise. Only downside was some odd lighting that over our weeks stay we never got the hang of. Breakfast was excellent, with a huge variety of options. The barman Phillipe was also wonderful, the right level of attentive without being in your face and knew how to make a great Bellini. The hotel itself is very central and as its close to the Stacione Principe it means that you don't have far to walk if you get the Volabus from the airport.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2013

the pros: Its a beautiful old hotel with nice spacious rooms. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. Its near the principe station if your just coming into town for a day. you don't hear your neighbors much between rooms. The wood and metal otis elevator will time transport you into genoa's past. the staff is generally helpful. its in a safe part of genoa.

the cons: its near two major streets and a major outdoor bus terminal and train station is across the street so street noise is loud. the maids start early and make a racket -- I wouldn't choose this hotel if your going to be hitting the nightlife. because transportation is weird in genoa its hard to get back to the hotel via mass transportation after 9:00 so you may have to take a 20 minute walk form the main center to get back there or take a cab.

This is a delightful hotel in an excellent location just opposite the main railway station. We had day trips to many lovely coastal resorts. The room was not large but very bright clean and comfortable. There is a quirky old open lift. The breakfast was superb, some of the best scrambled eggs we have ever eaten and almond cake to die for. Overall a lovely stay.

the only inconvient was the elevator ..its very old and got stuck in it and late to pick up the train ..
but it was a nice stay

Room Tip: go there believe me

We selected this hotel due to its proximity to the principle train station. It turned out to be an excellent choice. Good service, nice spacious rooms in an elegant historical building. The attached restaurant was also excellent.

This is a beautiful hotel just a one or two minute walk from the train station. The check in was fast, efficient, and the desk staff was friendly and professional. Our room was extremely spacious with a wonderful view of the square. It's within walking distance of the harbour and the rest of the tourist "zone". We especially enjoyed walking around the area and seeing the sites. As others have noted, the hotel has it's charm with the old-fashioned lift, slippers, bathrobes, and decor. We would stay here again for sure.
