    The location is great, very close to the Piazza Principe railway station and main streets with numerous palaces under UNESCO protection. Genova is an amazing historic maritime Republic, definitely worth visiting.

  • 8.0.Very good

    My room was not as difficult to navigate as the one I had on my visit the week before. There was only one step up (into the bathroom) rather than also having a step up into the room. The bed fit the size of the room better and there was a desk and chair.

  • 6.0.Good

    Reception person was on the phone for several minutes while I stood ready to ask questions. I turned to look at brochures and finally went into dining room--still no acknowledgement of me and still chatting away on the same, apparently personal, call. After several more minutes I returned to stand at the counter in front of the coffee/espresso machine and continued to wait until the call was ended and I could ask for a cappucino.

    Good value, great location

    Great location, friendly staff, decent enough breakfast. The hotel is an old building so that comes with certain quirks, eg, the lift. But it's a great location - not too far from the station but very handy for the old town and the marina area. For the price, I thought it was good value.

    Great location - easy to get to the funicular, beautiful church across the way, close to the water and the train station. Bathroom was ridiculously small. Room was fine. Staff was very helpful. Elevator was terrifying and took a long time to arrive.

    Excellent rapport qualité/ prix. J'ai eu droit à un surclassement à l'arrivée. Le petit petit-déjeuner est copieux, et il y a même du jus d'orange frais ! Établissement très propre. Personnel gentil et serviable.

    Luci e ombre.

    Hotel in posizione centrale a Genova situato nella bella Piazza della Nunziata.Camera assegnata sufficientemente spaziosa e dotata di aria condizionata e frigobar con acqua in bottiglia gratuita.Colazione abbastanza soddisfacente.Ascensore senza porta che da un idea di pericolosità.Brutto episodio all'arrivo (avvenuto ben oltre l'orario di ceck in) dove mi è capitato di salire in camera e trovare un paio di zaini lasciati dell'ospite precedente il che,specie in tempo di covid,ti lascia quantomeno perplesso.Per il resto il rapporto qualità prezzo è onesto.

    Bon emplacement mais service à revoir

    Check in a 14h, une chambre de prête sur 3. Nous enregistrons quand même les 3 chambre triple histoire de pas perdre de temps le soir en arrivant. Arrivant très tard la nuit avant 4h du matin le réceptionniste me fait perdre 30min à refaire les passport, en oubliant une chambre et en voulant me faire payer un supplément de 60euro. Du coup 30min de sommeil perdu en sachant que l'ont devait partir à 7h du matin, c'est assez embêtant. L'hôtel est très bien situé mais trop bruyant, on peut entendre à travers les fenêtres ce qu'il se passe dans l'immeuble voisin.
