A good 4* family hotel - italian style. Free internet. Huge room, huge very comfortable bed and pillows - but - please - why is there only ever 1 armchair in a room? If 2 people are paying a lot of money to stay in a hotel does it ever occur to management that both people would like to sit... More

I stayed for one night in this hotel in March. First of all I take this opportunity to thank the friendly receptionist for her recommendation to where I could buy the delicions local pesto. Having said that the hotel has a spectacular oval stair and offer a very good breakfast buffet. However this is generally standard in Italy. I also... More

Location, location, location! The hotel sits just on the edge of the historic old city, less than 1 block from the Palazzo Ducale (art museum) and the city's giant fountain. It is only 15 min walking to Brignole Train Station. I was surprised how small it is for a "palace," we walked right past it initially! While it is "grand"... More

This hotel has seen better days and definitely needs some upkeep and repair. The staff needs some coaching around how to be nice and actually accommodate guests. When we arrived we could not locate the hotel so I called for directions and an impatient staff told me to send her an email. Luckily we were near another hotel that was... More

This is one of the rare hotels, that is looking better in real life, than on the photos. A wonderful and charming place right in the very middle of Genoa. We had an excellent room at the top-floor, overviewing the street and the fountain nearby from the balcony. The decoration and the furnitures are so beautyful, not to mention the... More

The hotel is bang in the centre of Genoa. Accessible from the airport by a 6 euro bus (stops just up the road) or a 30 euro taxi. The building is impressive with a superb and dominating staircase. The service was good. We were lucky enough to have a junior suite, a large and grand room filled with antiques. The... More

Vintage furniture brings me memories from my childhood. Rooms are very quite& clean all though there is too much traffic in the area. Well sited , very close to... More

A beautiful old belle epoque classic hotel perfectly located in the heart of Genoa. My room was large, comfortable, and quiet. The breakfast excellent. The staff outstanding. The price under 100 euros a night. Yes, all true. Over the years I've stayed in more than a few of those classic old hotels in Europe. My experience here was right up... More
