A four star hotel that is probably a three star hotel in the rest of the world beside Italy. A lousy breakfast and ugly rooms. The location was far from downtown Genoa. A good thing though is the parking, since we were travelling by car.

Nice hotel with good price & nice stuff as start point for cruise (MSC or Costa). Rooms are little it outdated and need an renovation, but perfectly clean. Breakfast is very good, and parking is free. Free parking is one of the most important points because parking in Genova is pricey. Hotel has free wi-fi which is not quite nice,... More

I would recommend no one goes here. Bad location.. Right opp the docks.. Noisy and ugly. Working girls all over the place at night. The breakfast is bad no wait it was horrible. Not worth even 1 euro. Wifi poor. Rooms are outdated.. Only plus was parking.

I only saw a little of Genoa bit what I saw I did not like. The hotel surroundings are old and dirty. Lots of traffic. Noisy. On the positive side, the hotel is right next to the ferry port - which has a small mall, including a McDonalds and a small supermarket. As soon as you enter the Colombus, you... More

The hotel is near the ferry harbor (and ask for a room overlooking the harbor to see this active place). Room is spacious and clean. Breakfast was very good. You get only 1 hour free WiFi per day, which is a big minus. It is not in a walking distance to any of the interesting touristic pace in Genoa.

Genoa is not a tourist destination, it is so run down, I felt unsafe and I felt like I was in another country as it did not feel like it was part of Italy, it was a total shock coming from Tuscany and Florence to this place. We stayed here as we were on our way to see an old... More

Columbus Sea Hotel is a fine hotel when you are waiting to board the ferry. Having a room at the harbour side, means yiu have to accept this alive area. Service is ok, rooms are ok, free wifi (excellent!) and breakfast was also very good and diverse. I had no complains what so ever!

We used Hotwire and got this hotel last minute. The road is really hard to find, it took us 5 times to find the right turn. While we were trying to find the way to enter to hotel street. There were about 10 prostitutes on the sidewalk!!!! Then we finally got to the hotel. The parking was full. The receptionist... More
