We originally booked The Hotel Continental only to find when we got there that it was closed....and we were given a free upgrade to the 5 star sister hotel The Grand Hotel Savoia which is next door.Yipee!!....our first ever upgrade!
The GHS is a very elegant hotel - couldn't understand the negative review on here....we found the staff very pleasant and helpful....,the breakfast room setting with the stunning panorama was truly spectacular...including the hot tub on the terrace balcony!....and the breakfast itself was a really good spread.
It's very close to the Principe railway station...so no taxi fare needed.
We found Genoa to be a very interesing and pleasant port...we did the boat trip round the harbour enjoyed the Piazzas...found Maro Polo's prison and went up on the elevator to Castello for the wonderful views over Genoa.
Genoa provided a very nice short stopover on our way to the Cinque Terre...and the Grand Hotel Savoia was a memorable experience.
