Well, the title characterizes the hotel sufficiently and I could stop writing. However, let me add a few lines about my hotel impressions. Based on the Tripadvisor ranking as number three in Genova, I had exaggerated expections in this four-star hotel, which could not be met, because I did not know anything about the classification of hotels in this city....

If you want to visit Genoa this place is ideal. Clean and modern with nice comfortable rooms. You can walk everywhere you need to from this hotel and its located on a quite upper class shopping street not far from the main square as well as plenty or restaurants nearby. The breakfast was excellent. We would stay here again.

We stayed at the Hotel for 1 week in a 4 bed room. It consisted on one double bed and bunk beds for the children. The room was very clean and an excellent size for all four of us. The room had a TV and Playstation2 for the children. My only gripe would be there was very little clothes storage... More

Stayed at this hotel for one night. Had a 4 person bedroom so it was spacious enough for the two of us. Our room came with Playstation, how amazing is that! (think games need to be rented?), slippers, 2 types of pillows, minibar, safe, hairdryer. The accessories in the bathroom get even better! A complete set for shaving, dental set... More

Lovely hotel - clean, spacious and feeling of luxury without the price. It was in a good position and the staff were extremely helpful and professional at all times. Lovely breakfast and very comfortable bed with additional pillow order service.

Sarah and Andrea at front desk were incredibly helpful throughout our 5 day stay, helping us enjoy our visit to Genova. We were lucky enough to book the suite 822 with its huge patio - a great outdoor and indoor space and very quiet. Downside was no AC first three nights and a warm May, but staff did what they...

I have nothing bad at all to say about this hotel. Everything was great. Good location near the old center, fine service, and an excellent breakfast with some local specialties (focaccia, salame di genova, etc.) Also, given my lengthy experience travelling in Italy both on holiday and for business it represents good value for money. The staff are friendly and... More

We stayed in Genoa for 1 night and were very impressed by front of house staff. Each and every one of them were pleasant, helpful and took extra time to help with other things like suggesting inward journey, advice about other places to visit in Italy etc. They had ample breakfast and good choices however you need to get down...
