I rate this hotel (Villa Bonera in GEnova Nervi) with 5 stars out of 5. Personel very sympathic and helpfull; they enjoy their job and there is an positive feeling/atmosphere in this beuatiful building (former palace of a noble familiy). Service perfect, clean rooms, good breakfast (italian/european style) with some homemade products (sweet pastries). Breakfast is served in the garden/... More

Marco M, Responsabile reception at Villa Bonera, responded to this review

Dear Sylvester, at the check-out you told me you were going to give us 5 stars, but I couldn't expect a spectacular review like this! It's much easier to enjoy your work when you meet nice and smiling people that you could have a chat with, and that's just your case. Thank you so much, we all hope to see... More

I would not stay here again. There was an electrical short in our main light. Blew two light bulbs. We did not feel safe in the room. Staff would not move us. The hotel was very old and the actual hotel does not live up to the pictures shown.

The building has seen better days for sure, as it could be said for a lot of people; but no one is more than 500 years old and we think it looks younger than it is. We're sorry about the electrical short, usually when something like this happens we just change the bulb, not the entire room. Some of our... More

Booked online and I couldn't bear staying so checked out at the cost of a night's accommodation. The management offered an alternative but the fact that they were prepared to offer this room at all didn't give me confidence. Room 1, a single room was one of several constructed along the edges of the balcony running around the building, I... More

Dear Tim, usually when our guests are not satisfied with their room, we do our best to offer them another accomodation, so they can enjoy their stay here. Unfortunately, there was no chance with you. You had booked a room for two nights, and since you wanted to leave immediately we had to make you pay for the first night,... More

We stayed here in August 2012. First impressions are quite good. It's a rambling, rather rundown old palazzo set in its own grounds just off the main street of the elegant suburb of Nervi. (Good public transport links to central Genova.) The central foyer is spectacular - from the ground floor you can look right up to the decorated ceiling.... More

I'm afraid to say that I've read some inaccuracies, probably due to the time that has past since your stay here... I can't say who's hiding behind this review, but I'm pretty sure that in August 2012 you wouldn't have found a double room at less than 73 euro per night (our price) in every 2 star hotel in Genova....

The building is superb, a 16th century villa that is probably essentially the same as when it was built. It is near to bus stops, the 17 for going to Brignole rail station or the 15 for the run along the coast to Genoa. The harbour and the start of the Passiagata Anita Garibaldi are a short stroll, around 200... More

The hotel is located in a quiet and beautiful suburb (Nervi), very close to the rocky sea-shore and the imposing Annita Garibaldi promenade. Easy access to the city-centre by bus or by train. The building itself is a little faded but has a genuine renaissance atmosphere. The rooms were clean and the breakfast good enough. If travelling by car, It... More

The location is ideal.. A block from the rail station and the promenade at the beach. The rooms are excellent and the grounds well cared for. This is a great place to relax or use as a base. The area surrounding the hotel is a very nice residential neighborhood and being a block from the promenade, makes evening walks a... More

My boyfriend and I spent 3 nights in this hotel last summer. The location is super, an authentic " villa genovese". Our room was big, clean and confortable, the only negative detail: the bathroom should be renewed. What I enjoyed most is the breakfast in the garden, with homemade cakes and jams, really amazing! I would definitely stay there again... More
