One of the worst hotels we have ever stayed in ! Let’s start with the service, which is actually no service, employees, especially at the reception are unfriendly and not helpful, it seems they want to make your stay terrible plus they hate speaking English - so you better learn Italian before you stay at Hotel Continental Genova! Mentioning the Hotel, it does NOT deserve the 4 stars AT ALL. The Breakfast is terrible, not fresh, what gets warm will be served next day, the emloyees seem greedy, you have to ask twice for more, the room service was not good, the lift smelled like trash every day, we had dirty brown water during the first two days of our 5 day stay, the air condition was loud as hell and smelly too! They gave us a room “in the 4th floor, which is really high and nice” - in the Ende our view was a wall from the neighbour house, dark and grey! No to forget - the area is disgusting, rats, junkies and homeless people everywhere around and in front of the hotel! Yes, the main train station is close, but you will feel uncomfortable coming back to the hotel and walking that 500m through this area! Las but not least - the reception is rude rude rude and unprofessional! PS Wi-fi is very slow…

Fabulous hotel close to the station and aquarium. We have two young children and were pleasantly surprised to find pirate- themed indoor and outdoor play spaces at the sister hotel next door (which connects to the Continental on level 1). Definitely recommend to other young families.

Charming hotel, part classic part modern. All very functional and staff extremely nice and helpful. Very convenient location also for public transportation and as a hub for visting Genoa. And good value for money too.

I especially loved the old elevator, but everything in this hotel is old and you feel like you travelled in time! Very unique! The room was comfortable and clean, there was a hot water cooker and tea/coffee and a minibar, breakfast was delicious and a good variety of different foods and the staff was polite and helpful. Unfortunately it is quite loud because of the proximity to the main train station and also the rooms aren’t soundproof (which I can understand though, considering the old building is probably under monument protection), but bring some earplugs along and you’ll be just fine!
