We have stayed here a number of times. It has all been said by previous reviews, so all I can say is it maintains it's standards. Nice family run hotel in a great location. Breakfast still good. The owners son is very helpful and his English improves but my Italian doesn't. The only reason for not giving five stars is... More

We stayed 2 very pleasant nights at Hotel Genova while visiting Sestri Levante. Immediately upon checking in, the proprietor asked if we wanted a seaview room at no extra charge and of course we said yes. Our 2nd floor room (really 3rd floor since the lobby is 0) was very clean and a nice size with an additional area separated... More

Stayed here for four nights and found everything perfect! 5 mins from train station and across the road from the beach. Renovated rooms and spotlessly clean. Also soundproofed with aircon. Towels changed every day and breakfast was a feast! Loved our stay here.

This is a great hotel in a very good location, the young guy at reception was very helpful (and dishy too!!) We were upgraded to a great room with a sea view and much bigger than we expected. There was a good choice for breakfast. Would recommend this hotel

We used this hotel as a base for traveling to Cinque Terre. The owner and his family went the extra mile to make our stay comfortable. There is a well furnished indoor lounge on the 3rd floor and a terrace which gave a good view, on the top floor. Breakfast was brilliant!

There's not much else we can add to the many reviews already left for this pleasant hotel. It is definitely convenient to the train station, water front and many good restaurants. We drove into Sestri Levanti and the underground parking facility was actually several blocks from the hotel, however the owners were very good about letting us park directly in... More

Minutes from the train station, easy flat walk to the hotel, and only meters from the sea! Breakfast was perfect assortment/variety. Veranda on the rooftop was perfect for taking in the view all around the hotel and great for meeting new people from different areas of the world. Most of the time we went up there, however, it was just... More

Loved this place. Great location: 2 min walk to the beautiful beach; less then 20 minutes to Bay of Silence, historic part of town, & tons of restaurants; 4 min walk to train station if you're going to Cinque Terre. The breakfast was PERFECT - coffee, fruit, pastries, bread, etc. The beds were comfortable & the entire place was spotless.... More
