We picked this hotel for its amenities and the fact that it is in a perfect location for visiting the old part of Genoa. We booked directly with and prepaid the hotel. The hotel provides a small discount for the parking at the Porto Antico which is right across a busy main street from the corner of Via al Ponte Calvi. The room price included wifi, an ample breakfast, safe, refrigerator, luggage rack, and a tea/coffee maker. Our reasonably sized room (#402) faced an airshaft but was quiet; rooms facing the street might be noisier. The bathroom shower was a bit odd as the showerhead faced the shower doors. It took a while for the water to get hot. Amenities included bars of soap as well as liquid gel/soap and tissues. While breakfast purports to start at 7:00, everything is not really ready until 7:20 or so. However, the offerings are ample: cereals, fruit, breads, hard boiled eggs, cheeses, meats, beverages, juices, etc. (An added convenience for us was the location of the Lavanderia Smacchia Express nearby (take a right out of the hotel, cross the street into the alley, and turn left at the next "street." The lavanderia is on the right a few stores up that street.) The hotel is within easy walking distances to all the major sites in the old part of Genoa and there are various restaurants and cafes in the neighborhood. The staff speak excellent English.
