i was here in 2014 for a conference。 the price is ok and the room is clean。 the price also includes breakfast。 location is so so。3 star hotel, which i believe that is about 2 and half stars. I was thought the name Britannian may indicate a british style. Unforturnitly, it is not quite british.

The staff at reception vere extremely nice and helpful to accommodate our bicycles into the hotel. The room was very clean, had AC and toiletries. Comfortable bed. The only noise we heard in the room was a dog from across the corridor. The breakfast was very nice and varied. All in all good location, reasonable price and good service.

This hotel is close to the train station, but it was difficult to find because of it's sign. A local helped me find it. I was looking for "CIT" when I should have been looking for "Britannia". The first room we got was 3 levels, nothing special. Def not 4 stars. It was more of a low end 3 star... More

This hotel is good for a Genoa trip if you are coming in and out from the train station. Large triple room - sitting area with extra bed, and two beds in a upper loft staple space. Cleanliness okay...housekeeping could have done a better job with the bathroom (floss on the floor, one body wash pack left behind that was... More

Claimed to be 4* hotel, receptionist doesnt speak any english, IT only. Nothing like a warm smiling welcome. Room was two levels, quite clean, worn out. Bathroom quite small. Old type telly. Needs renovation and modernisation. The real dissappointment was breakfast buffet. Very basic for 4* rating, no way to have it like that. Top of all was the rotten... More

We chose this hotel because we were told that is close to the Port of Genoa. This is not quite true...we had to walk more than 15 minutes with our luggage on the street, than we went down many stairs until we arrived to the Port.. Beside this disadvantage the hotel is close to the tram station and also to... More

I loved this hotel, firstly because of it's great location. You are literally 3 minutes from the main train station and minutes from the historic centre and port. The room, while not luxurious by any means, was clean and warm. The TV had all the english language news stations which was useful. The free wi-fi worked on my friend's phone,... More

I stayed one night here, having gotten a deal on the hotel. It is a two-minute walk from the train station and an easy walk to the old port. The hotel's entrance is a little worrisome in its grittiness, but it is nice inside, although hallways have a rather institutional feel to them. My room was good sized, had a... More

Not sure how thw star sistem works in Italy but I would say this is closer to a 3 star than a 4. Clean, hard beds, Air con of the 90's. basic breakfast reasonable price. Staff pleasant enough. IT access worked better using the next door hotel for free
