We arrive in the evening and made our way from Genoa Railway station through somewhat down at heel streets to the Hotel Alexander ( booked on-line). The reception area was a bit shabby and smelt of cigarette smoke and the male night shift receptionist was not especially welcoming. The piece de resistance, however, was the baseball bat stashed behind the... More

This hotel is all about location, it is so close to the principe station and the cruise ship terminal that you dont need to get taxis to either and it is a comfortable walk to downtown. Although the room was small especially the shower cubicle in the bathroom it was clean and tidy and with breakfast provided represented good value.

The staff does not wanted to be bothered with any requests or statement to problems with the rooms. The rooms smell... More
