Stayed in this hotel for one night only. While the photo's show a nice hotel, this is not the case. Maybe for the renovated rooms, but not for mine. AC was not to nearly not operating. So it was around 25 degrees in the room at night. The bed was rock hard. Some people like that, of course, however I... More

This hotel was very clean and comfortable, small and personal. The staff were all helpful and friendly. Breakfast, included in the price, was generous and of good quality, unlike many 'included' breakfasts. Hard to rate the noise level, as we were there during carnival, so the whole city was musical through the night! Good location, too. We'd stay again.

I stayed one night at this hotel. Nice reception, pool and restaurant areas but what a dump of a room. Although I booked a single room I was allocated a room with four beds in it and it certainly had not been refurbished, probably since the hotel was originally built. The whole room could do with power washing or sand... More

Stayed here during Carnaval. Rooms looked plain on the website but the Carnaval mark up rate wasn’t too bad. Actually, upon arrival, found out there had been some recent remodeling and our room was pretty decent, modern and tastefully appointed. However, the A/C wasn’t working properly and after a while the maintenance staff had to swap out it’s remote and... More

I stayed at the Hotel Genova during Carnaval 2013. The hotel is a nice property located in a less than perfect location. It's really not that big of a deal but it's not a place I'd go strolling around at night in. During the day is no problem at all. That being said, it will take you all of 5... More

I visited Genova Hotel in January/February 2012. A little piece of paradise in ethnic part of the city. The hotel was very clean with very nice staff. I spoke very little spanish and found staff in the hotel that were able to speak with me in english. Believe me if I wanted something they went out of their way to... More

A group of us stayed here one night upon arriving by flight into Barranquilla and one night before our flight out of Barranquilla. The hotel is in a sketchy part of town full that attracts all walks of night life into the several bars and strip clubs that surround the area. The daytime seemed to be fine, but there isn't...

I stayed at Genova during Carnaval last Feb. It was much cheaper than the hotels in the the El Prado area -- and the reason why is location. Genova is located in a very bad and dangerous part of town. Any time you leave the hotel, you need to take a cab. The nice part of town is about a... More
