Even though I was in Genoa for two nights, I only had one day to explore the city and this was an ideal base: central and extremely comfortable. Within easy walking distance were the Strada Nuova (3 excellent museums for the price of one, including the amazing Palazzo Rosso), Museo Palazzo Reale, 2 beautiful cathedrals plus numerous churches and of...

My fiance and I stayed for 1 night before heading to Cinque Terre the following morning from the train station. Upon check-in the receptionist noticed it was my birthday and sent us a bottle of champagne to celebrate. It was a great surprise and wonderful place to stay.

This hotel was fine - clean, comfortable, next to train station - but there is nothing to rave about. Good breakfast buffet with plenty choice but had to ask three times for espresso. Check in staff were polite but didn't offer any additional information although check-out lady noticed the date of birth on my husband's passport and wished him a... More

Great location - steps from the train station. The hotel is so nice, classy and clean. The front desk staff was so helpful, helped us plan what little time we had. I regretted that we didn't have more time.

We stayed for 2 nights at the beginning of July, at the start of a week's holiday in Liguria. Firstly what an interesting place Genoa is to spend a couple of days, which is also where the Continental scores because of its great location, close to the Principe Rail Station, with its excellent bus connections throughout the city, and the...

What a contrast to the one we stayed in at the start of our holiday. The whole place oozes charm and style. Our room was excellent-- fresh, clean and totally inviting. If we had wanted breakfast in the morning it was properly presented and had a good range of choice on offer. Quality of service was excellent and the old... More

I was trying to save a few travel dollars by staying here instead of the Grand Hotel Savoie (next door) since we were only passing through. I had read that they share the same restaurants and services. When we arrived we were upgraded to a lovely suite and it was very comfortable indeed. The Hotel Continental is well maintained, very...

Our extended family of 9 adult siblings and young adults stayed here for 2 nights. Our primary hotel selection criteria was proximity to the train station and harbor. For that we couldn't get any closer. We got that and way more. Hotel was a gem with comfortable, well-appointed rooms, excellent wi-fi, air conditioning, helpful staff and great breakfasts. The neighborhood... More

After staying in the Hotel Continental for a week, we can confidently say that this is a fantastic place to have as a homebase when you are in Genova. The weather was hot during our visit and the cool airconditioned room with a perfect view and a free bottle of water and clean sheets on our bed everyday was the... More

This hotel is one of the best hotels in Genoa. We stayed for 2 nights A very clean place, very comfortable, exceptional helpful staff, great breakfast, central and a 10 minutes walk from the old harbor. Located near the train station, still very quiet. Great room, with everything needed to make you feeling good. Excellent air-condition. Our feelings were we... More
