One of very few 5 star hotels in Genoa, this is a great hotel. Very professional staff. Beautiful large room on the fourth floor. Spotlessly clean and fresh. Two bathrooms overlooking a tree-lined quiet street about ten minutes walk to the old town in one direction, and another ten to the main shopping area which out of the two areas, is much nicer, especially at night.
The bar and public areas are perfect although only had breakfast so can't comment on lunch or dinner. Free wifi is good although they randomly change the password which seemed to upset a few people. Just ask or phone reception for a new password is all I had to do.
Nice bar and pizzeria, bank / cash point and pharmacy across the street. At the back is a post office, wine bar and shop.
A short taxi ride to Brignole station (6 to 8 euros) and you can easily explore the cinque terre a collection of five old fishing villages. Portifino is about an hour or so by ferry taken from beside the aquarium.
All in all great stay here, really recommend it.
