“Sinking fast”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

I stayed at this hotel three years ago and returned to find everything going under. For a supposed 4-Star hotel, this place doesn't make the grade. The rooms are dirty and the rugs are ancient. No one seems to care. They charge for wi-fi and the system crashes frequently. Breakfast is just average; below that for a 4-Star. Overall, the place needs a good overhaul or simply junk it. My advice: if you want to stay here, hurry. It may not be here long.

Friendly Hotel and it was pretty close to the Genova-Port. Room was in a usual "middle Class" Standard. From Room, we had good View to the Port. Employee at CheckIn and CheckOut was friendly and they speak also good english there.

We stayed a night here on a package holiday before boarding a cruise ship, I wish the tour operator had done there homework as this is a low cost budget hotel and it shows. There were holes in the curtains, the room was small, a double had been booked but we got a twin. We arrived for breakfast about 20 minutes before it finished and there was not much left to eat. I asked for a teapot for our tea and was told that they had finished giving out tea pots !!!! We called into the bar for a drink but they only had a very limited drink selection.
There are much nicer hotels in Genoa and given the choice I would not stay here again

We had an early Ferry Departure, so we did arrived already one Night before in Genova and went into the Columbus Hotel - just few Minutes from the Feryyterminal away. The Neighboorhood arround is not spectacular, but there have been two good italian Restaurants.
The Hotel is in a good "middle Class" Level with a usual Standard. Room was little bit oldfashioned, but clean.
In Room it was calm during the Night. For one night it is sufficient. For longer Trip,better search a Hotel more closer to Genova Center.

We chose this hotel bec of proximity to Ferry Terminal...and it was perfect for that. The rooms were clean, adequate...no complaints. Staff efficient. Walked 4 minutes of a ''local'' restaurant mostly frequented by workers from the ferry terminal---and staggered 'home' having been well fed/drinks for a few Euros. Would stay there again if connecting to ferry but probably elsewhere if visiting Genoa

I had a single room & it felt very small. There was very little furniture in the room & the bed was pushed up against the wall - it was ok for sleeping on, but no the level of luxury that I am used to in hotels.
It is located near the port - quite a distance from the rest of the city.
There are a few eating places nearby, but nowhere near the amount of options that you would get from one of the city centre hotels.
It may be a better location though if you need to catch an early ferry or cruise.
