It was our first time in Genoa and we were very surprised to see just how close it was to the train station. It's literally right down the street. After buzzing into the hotel, we went to the reception desk (above the offices) and were greeted fairly politely. He spoke English well which helped.
Our room was on the second floor and was just what we needed for a one night stay. The showers were warm (but small) and the beds were comfortable (but smelled of bleach). We could hear people through the walls and cars drove by the window all of the time but we turned on the fan and were able to sleep without issue.
The breakfast was 5 euros and definitely better than expected. They had everything you would like (eggs, yogurt, cereal, toast, etc.) The most worrisome thing was the baggage storage for when we went out to town... The man told us to just stick them under the breakfast table and they would be fine. But they indeed turned out to be fine. Another perk of the hotel is that it's only about a ten minute walk from the central fountain, but the Palazzo Reale is just right down the street (HIGHLY recommended!). Also, there are a few restaurants and gelaterias outside of the hotel.
All in all, if you can get past the few issues here and there, it's a good hotel. We wouldn't want to stay here for an extended period of time but if you are passing through and are on a budget, go for it.
