“Good hotel for one night”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We stayed in this hotel one night before cruise. The standart room was simple but clean.( In the web site of hotel it seems more nice). The hotel is quite old, but well keeping. From metro station till hotel about 1 km. The breakfast was not variet, but simple and fresh. One bad thing: The hotel is next to the ambulance station, so all night You can hear car sirens. Overall 3* good hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the port side are quieter.

The Columbus Sea is next to the harbor and we had a room that overlooked the harbor. I was expecting to hear the harbor traffic but didn't hear anything, with the exception of when I opened the window. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Before we checked into the hotel we explored the city. We had expected to explore the city in the evening, but it was raining so we stayed at the hotel and had "snacks" in the bar. It was a good thing food was offered in the bar because there was a holiday party in the restaurant and we couldn't eat there. Breakfast in the morning was really good and they had a lot to choose from. The hotel also has free parking located next to the hotel.

This hotel is definitely NOT for star, but average and play for one night before joining a cruise ship. It is a 27 Euros taxi ride from Genoa airport and 17 Euros from the Stazione Maritima Cruise Terminal, or a 20 minutes walk without luggage. Great: there is a Coop supermarket in a mall next to the hotel. There is a pizzeria across the street, run by a Chinese family (???). The hotel itself is simple. Power did not work when I checked into my room, but I fixed it. Furniture was 70s style and simple. But there was a safe and even a small fridge. Internet is free for the 1st hour and then 1 Euro per hour. Breakfast is basic but okay. Even closer to the cruise terminal are the Holiday Inn and the Sheraton, as I found out. Staff is friendly.

Room Tip: fifth floor is overlooking the port, you can see your ship!

We just spent two nights in Genoa prior to embarking on a cruise. When coming to the city by car - as we did - the Columbus Sea Hotel can play out its biggest asset, namely free parking (and also easy access). The rooms are old fashioned, but adequate, and the bathrooms are serviceable. The free breakfast is edible. The staff is very friendly and helpful. If one's expectations are not high, as ours were not, there is really nothing to complain about. However, no more than a three star rating!

Room Tip: Ask for a high room facing the waterfront

The hotel is good, but old.
The room smelled like it was just cleaned but they cannot take the odor of the carpet anymore.
Is clean but everything looks old. Look like it had gloried times before.
The breakfast was really good and for 1 night that we stayed was ok. But if you want to stay longer it will begin to bother you.

Excellent location just off the motorway, free parking which is not heard of in Genoa! Good value, rooms spacious, clean, could do with an upgrade regards bathroom looked tired , pillows a bit hard but on the whole a great location. Rooms seemed warm so when windows opened a bit noisy as near port but on the whole good value for money. Breakfast was good informal and hot and cold choices including bacon and some funny sort of eggs! But would say a good three star not four but worth the money paid last minute.

Room Tip: Head for passenger terminals to ferry and shopping centre as roads around seem quite confusing and m...

We more or less accidently found the hotel as we were cruising through the city looking for a place to stay while heading home. The room was clean and big enough, with a very good bed. We slept very well, except for the noisy AC, yes.. on the fifth floor.
Good continental sumptuous breakfast, good coffee, but the scrambled eggs were too dry.
The secured car park was a nice extra (without extra cost), and access to the highway is very nearby. Friendly staff.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the seaside and try to avoid the fifth floor for the AC noise.
