I can understand why this is currently rated at the 3rd best hotel in Genoa by Tripadvisor. The location is pretty good despite what some other reviews say. It is near the Principe train station and also just 10 minutes walk from the port - ideal if you are pre or post cruise. It takes just 10 minutes to walk into the center of Genoa and this walk is through part of the Medieval city past grand palazzos and museums so pleasant. We had booked a standard double room and we were very happy with the result. The room was on the third floor which can be accessed via stairs or antique lift. The lift is great - just remember to close the doors properly behind you!Our room was spacious, immaculate and well equipped. Great views over the station towards the port from the windows. Despite it being quite a busy bus and travel route there was no noise at all from the very good triple glazing. Air conditioning was super efficient as was the high speed internet. Another good thing about the rooms on the front of the building - not sure about the back, was that they had shutters so that you could keep out the direct sun in the day and make the room quite dark at night. Well equipped bathroom and super comfortable bed. In room safe, fridge and tea/ coffee making bits and bobs.
Breakfast was served in the downstairs trattoria which consisted of the usual selection of continental meats, cheeses, patisserie etc.
The Continental is linked to (physically and corporately) to the adjacent hotel Grand Hotel Savoia. This is also a great looking period building with a spa and roof terrace.
There are plenty of small cafes, restaurants in the vicinity of this hotel for lunch and evening meals.
Would definitely stay here again when next in Genoa.
