Hotel GeNova
Ranked #9 of 12 Hotels in Scalea
Reviewed 17 June 2010

Based on favorable reviews, we made it a point to pull off the highway in Scalea for a one night stay at this small, rather new 8-room hotel/motel. The spotlessly clean room turned out to have the most comfortable mattress, sheets, soft towels, and a super modern bathroom, all fit for a 5-star hotel. In this regard, the Ge Nova bested all the other 3,4,and 5 star hotels in which we stayed during our road trip in southern Italy.

The room came with a super comfortable king size bed, desk, flat screen TV, safe, laminate floor, wall mounted, in-room remotely controlled A/C, a fridge(not stocked), and basic white wood furnishings which showed early signs of abuse. Good overhead and bedside lighting gave the room a bright ambiance, a large window added to that. The modern desk lamp was without a bulb, and there was no phone in the room. The bathroom with enclosed, tiled shower, most up-to-date modern sink and fixtures, bidet, and hair dryer left nothing to be desired and it elicited a "wow" when first sighted. Although the windows were double pane glass, trucks rumbling by all night on the highway through town kept us light sleepers from getting a sound night of sleep.

The on-site restaurant with in- and outdoor seating serves delicious food, including a great pizza. Breakfast included in the price is served "on the run" Italian style with juice, coffee, and a croissant.

For the price paid, it is hard to find a nicer, cleaner, and more up-to-date room in the area. The English speaking son of the proprietor is very much showing desire to please his guests, as is the rest of the family. In summary, the Ge Nova is worth a visit.

Reviewed 7 October 2008

We chanced upon the Genova whilst travelling down to Calabria from Naples.

It is a very modern hotel (only opened this year in its present state) and at present has only 8 rooms. However the rooms are of the HIGHEST standard. Clean, comfortable and very stylish, with excellent bed and flat screen TV, safe and storage.

The bathroom is spectacular with blue lighting and a huge walk in shower with "Tropical rainstorm" shower head.

As it was off peak, the room only cost 50 Euros for two with breakfast. This consisted of a beautifully fresh "cornetto" plus coffee.

The hotel has also a restaurant with one of the best pizzas I have ever had (from a wood burning stove) and regional specialities. The owner, who, unlike his mother who is on duty during the day, speaks excellent English, said that the old part is being torn down and 16 new rooms being added over the winter.

The beach is a two minute walk across a fairly busy road and the town has some nice bars.

I would highly recommend this hotel and would be more than happy to stay there again.
