The Best Western was a good hotel. It's very hard to exit, by just a tiny street with no parking immeadiately outside. The parking for the hotel was by a Co-op carpark 700 yards away. It was secure and safe with lots of parking spaces. On the approach it looks like a good hotel and the entrance hall is appealing with a wide variety of leaflets and pamflets for Genoa, which didnt actually contain that much as a city. Our room was on the first floor and could be accessed by stairs, a main lift and a porters lift. Our room was directly outside of the lift so access from the main hall was easy. It was a good sized room which used a key card to enter AND for the electricity slot, which was on the wall as you enter. If you dont put it in, you'll be stuck in the dark like we were! There was a good double bed with 2 lights and a alarm clock with instructions on how to operate it. There was a sofa bed directly opposite in the same room which was made up and ready to sleep in. Good comfort on both beds. There was a large TV with a PS2 but with no controllers for the PS2 it wasnt really operational. The TV recived basic Italian channels as well as BBC and Sky News. The bathroom was well equiped with a powerful shower and enclosure and a toilet, mirror, cabinet and shelves. There were wardrobes if you did want to put away your clothes. There was a 5 minute walk to a main square with a fountain and then streets which went off in all directions containing a wide variety of resturants considering the area.
The hotel had a good breakfast service in the morning which had coffee, milk and all other drinks you could want. It wad a large selection of breakfast cereals and pastries aswell as food for young children to eat, which came with special bowls and cutlery.
Overall a 7/10 hotel which just did what it said on the packet!
