Hotel is situated in the very centar of Genoa. However rooms are very old -clean but old. Air in the rooms is stiff and when you open the window noise is too loud. Breakfast was nice, though it was my first experience that I needed to pay extra for the omelet when american breakfast is included in the price. Hotel stuff was very nice.

It's old school (don't let the really really old lift in the foyer scare you!). Classic Italian hotel, lots of little stairs joining mismatched floors, but it's clean, it's friendly and the rooms we had was quite large and included a separate kitchen and dining area. Interestingly, enough kit here to cook a decent meal for four, but no glasses, only really weak disposable plastic cups. Weird. After asking reception twice for some wine glasses we had to settle for our Chianti in juice glasses. Two single beds pushed together, but comfortable, we've had worse around Italy!! For a mid range hotel close to the Railway station, I'd recommend it.

Room tip: Not 240. Cooking smells from restaurant deep fryer below start at about 7 pm.

Small and clean room
Very good location but the hotel is old and need some touch up
Our room is on the first floor , facing some kind of exhaust fan, we had a strange smell every night when we go back to hotel and it is very annoying.

The Continental is a quality Hotel, very much along traditional lines in style, appearance and ambience. It is really convenient to the main train station, just a short, manageable stroll, and well located as a base for exploring the attractions of Genoa.

From the time you arrive at the small reception area and thereafter throughout the Hotel the decor and furniture certainly reflect a traditional Italian era. The staff at reception were welcoming and helpful and it is easy to feel quite at home here.

Our room was surprisingly spacious and attractively furnished with the Italian theme. It had an interesting small "reception" or sitting area as well as the standard bedroom, a walk in wardrobe (very handy) and a well equipped bathroom. The bed is firm but comfortable, there are a couple of comfortable chairs and the air conditioning was well appreciated after exploring in the warm to hot late summer!

It is worth noting that the shower is in a very high sided bath and it is, frankly, no small feat to comfortably climb in and out of it! A trap for the less agile! And bear in mind that that dangling cord is a "help" alarm and not a switch for an exhaust fan. The phone will ring very quickly if you get this mixed up - another trap for the unwary!

There is a quality buffet breakfast served in the adjoining restaurant. There is a good range of "standard" continental breakfast items in a pleasant dining room. On one of our visits the hard working single staff member struggled to keep the scrambled eggs replenished but overall it is adequate and appropriate to a good three star Hotel which is realistically about where the Continental sits.

The actual Hotel does not have a bar or guest lounge in house but excellent facilities are available a short walk along the corridor to the adjoining Savoire Hotel (the bigger sister of the two). This has an excellent rooftop bar and restaurant which has some superb outside tables and well worth a visit. And there are lots of suitable eating and drinking establishments just a short walk from the Hotel.

All in all the Continental is a good quality Hotel which provides comfortable accommodation in a convenient location at ( based on this experience) a reasonable price. It is recommended.

Handy if your training anywhere as the central station is across the street 1 minute away.
But the downfall of this its pretty noisy with traffic, however the automatic metal blinds/shutters will block out most noise buts its then pitch black in your room. Lift elevator bit tricky so chose the stairs most if the time. average breakfast nothing to rave about. Does have lovely seafood restaurant on site and italian restaurant right next door and 3 -4 pizza/pasta restaurants all within a 1-2 minute walk. The walk from the hotel into the main tourist area and attractions takes about 10-15 minutes or take the bus and it will be there in 5.....ladies at front desk were always friendly and ready to help. Rooms were surprisingly quite large and plenty of room.
Overall our 4 day stay was ...nice....
