Stayed here for a total of three nights. Staff were pleasant enough upon arrival. You'll get asked to pay city tax which is an additional payment of €1 per person for every day you spend in Genoa.
Room was a good size for us as a couple with great storage. Shower had good pressure and had hair/soap dispenser in it. Towels are also included with the room. Aircon kept us cool all evening. Walls are quite thin but this didn't end up bothering us much and obviously the novelty of the music themed rooms was a nice touch!
The only issue we had was that we booked through an external website which said there were no double rooms left so we booked a triple room which obviously cost a bit more but we were prepared to pay as it offered such a great price anyway. Upon arrival the receptionist realised there were only two of us and so got her colleague to turn down the third bed. She then informed us that we could have called the hotel directly to say we were only a two and they would have charged us accordingly. We did email prior to our visit to say this but never got a reply (we had infact forgotten we emailed by that point!). So when you book - if it says they have no double rooms just call them directly as they make up the bedrooms tailored to your needs and beds aren't permanently installed. We had to push our beds together but it wasn't so bad, would have been nice to save even more money though!
Location was great because on your way into the marina (12 mins walk away) you get to see all the smaller roads, notable places and hidden gems! The city is really not that big and we got to places pretty swiftly.
Carrefour (small supermarket) is hidden down an alley on the main road near Carpisa (bag shop). Took me a while to find that out so be sure to take a peek down the alleys and you'll see a sign in green writing. Be sure to shop in the day though as it shuts quite early! The 24hr Vending machines up the road leading to XX Septembre sell water for just 50 cent - the cheapest we found.
Overall, a great trip with a great hotel in an ideal location!
