The hotel is close to the Railway stations, so it is easy to access either the Ponente or Levante coastline by train. Also close to the metro station so it is easy to get in the city centre (btw, it is not more than 15 mins to get in by foot). Close to the Via Garibaldi which is a fancy... More

Our stay at the CIT Britannia was unplanned. Nevertheless the experience was great. We were 2 adults and 3 children. The hotel was pristine. The room was very big with no problem to accommodate our large party. They have free Wi-Fi available in the entire premise. They have two elevators which is great especially when traveling with strollers!!. They offer... More

Hotel CIT Britannia is just a decent hotel for a one-night stay. The room we stayed in was dark with some weird bright red furniture. The hallways were also very claustrophobic. The wifi was excellent, and so was the breakfast. The hotel location is very good as it is very near the port and the old city center.

Good location, but the overall experience was mediocre at best. Room wasn't properly cleaned; there was a bag of garbage in my room when I arrived. Breakfast was also poor, Italians seem to like pastries and cakes a lot. Staff was friendly and helpful.

We picked this hotel for proximity to train station and found it comfortable, clean and a good breakfast. Everything went smoothly. The people were friendly and helpful. We only stayed one night and had a good rest.

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
