    We had a great visit. At first it was difficult to find the place. But that didn’t last long. We discovered the hotel IS well located. Property was unique in its own history. It’s in an old building and as it was modernized blended the old and new. So tastefully done.

    What out if Driving

    This Accommodation is in the old town in Genoa, a word of warning don't if driving attempt to follow what the navigation say's because albeit correct in where it is taking you , you are NOT permitted to take the car into the old town & the streets are narrow there are stiff penalties as there are cameras to capture you entering as we found out later. The hotel didn't provide this information to us until we rang them after not being able to find the parking, other than that the stay was good .

    The hotel is in the middle of the old town and is really a Palazzo. They did an amazing job refurbishing the hotel and even maintaining some of its original paints, floors, etc. The decoration style is minimalist though, so don’t expect something fancy, it is modern but simple. Excellent place! Tip: Never take a sail boat from Genova to visit Portofino. Too far, too slow.

    Brief stay in Genoa

    Very nice hotel and the staff were very friendly and helpful in highlighting a few suggestions to see in our very short stay in Genoa. It would be nice to have left the air on as the only way to turn it on was to leave the key card in the AC slot. I understand the energy consumption/savings but it did take over an hour to get the room comfortable, would not hesitate to stay here again!

  • 4.0.Fair

    Staff were great but I stayed here on business the street outside was very noisy at 1and 2 am. I had mosquitos in the room and spent the next day feeling very tired and bitten all over. No curtains to block light also meant a very bright very early start after little sleep. Wouldn’t return here.

  • 8.0.Very good

    We arrived late in the evening, taxi dropped us off near the hotel and the area seemed a bit sketchy. The hotel itself is actually quite nice for the price point. The breakfast was really nice on the terrace and had a good variety of fresh baked goods, cheeses and other typical breakfast fare. The location is convenient to the port and shopping areas but later in the evenings it gets a bit desolate. Its a good choice if you're looking for convenience, value and a nice clean place to stay.

    Great service from hotel staff

    The hotel lobby is amazing with original architecture and design. The staff at front desk, Alfonso in particular, was extremely welcoming, knowledgable and friendly, answering all our questions and requirements. The breakfast area and terrace were clean. Breakfast bar had a great variety of food. The breakfast waiter attentive and friendly. Wondering way to start the day. The room was basic in design, although contained all required facilities, and is as shown in the booking site. Our only negative feedback was the bed and pillow. We found the bed to be very hard and pillow lumpy. Location of hotel was great. Close to port and tourist attractions.
