The hotel is just across the train station, which made it very convenient for a one night stay to visit the city. Althought the location is not lovely in terms of views, it’s very close to the historical center and the port. (5 minutes to the palazzos and 10-15 minutes to the port- by walking). We did not feel safe... More

This hotel looks as if it might hold secrets from years gone by - its elegance is aging pretty well. The caged elevator is a charming centerpiece for the property. The adjacent restaurant is where we enjoyed our breakfast buffet, which was included in our room price. Parking, however, was not, and that was a hefty added fee of about... More

This was our first stop on a trip through Italy, Austria, Germany ending in Amsterdam by rail. We stayed there in mid-June. We arrived to a very pleasant English speaking receptionist and were given an upgrade without even asking! Beautiful room at the back of the hotel (we had requested a quiet room) with everything first class and Art Deco... More

I can understand why this is currently rated at the 3rd best hotel in Genoa by Tripadvisor. The location is pretty good despite what some other reviews say. It is near the Principe train station and also just 10 minutes walk from the port - ideal if you are pre or post cruise. It takes just 10 minutes to walk... More

Quite pleasant hotel. Good points: it's conveniently located if you're arriving by train at Principe train station. The room was quite nice for the price I paid. The antique lift is quaint (although noisy). The attached trattoria was very good and reasonably priced. The bar at the sister hotel next door is very comfortable. The breakfast on offer was too...

Great spot close to the central train station. Certainly made for easy walking. The room we had was a suite, and unexpected as the booking was for a standard room. Quiet but very large with a bedroom, sitting room and bath.

Poor location but restaurant Attached to it is very nice indeed with good food at good prices with lovely helpful staff. The hotel has an old lift which is charming, the breakfast was nice and well priced. Am sure once it was part of lovely setting, but now is left with a sense of loss which is a shame. Wouldn't...
