We had a nice stay at this hotel. The reception is very friendly and the receptionist spent a good 10 minutes highlighting places to visit in Genoa, including showing pictures of places with he visited with his son. They have this adorable parrot at the reception, which was extremely cute. At breakfast it flew onto my partner's shoulder and was quickly retrieved - it was rather hilarious! The breakfast was good (a pastry, tea or coffee, yoghurt and there is cereal available) and in a nice room. The room we had was HUGE! It was 'marina' themed, so it was covered in shells and painted blue and had ship models and other quirky things inside. It is on a main street in Genoa so it can be a bit noisy outside, so best to bring ear plugs. It did quieten down at night time though so it was not a problem. My partner did notice, however, that our room smelled quite strongly of cigarette smoke. We are both non-smokers so this wasn't particularly pleasant. Other than that, it is very close to Brignole Station (5 mins walk) and it is in walking distance of other attractions. We liked it!
