Very enjoyable and comfortable stay in stylish modern hotel.
Probably more 4.5 stars than 5 star luxury as relatively small common areas but room well equipped, comfortable bed, large bathroom with powerful shower though the aircon didn't seem just to pump any cold air into the room even at a 14 degrees.
Decent buffet breakfast spread with excellent pastries (through lacking in fruit variety). Breakfast and reception service very friendly and helpful though the bar service was lagging behind.
Pleasant small pool and reasonably equipped gym available. Wi-fi service was a little patchy.
The hotel is located in a pleasant residential area with a few local shops (chemist, bakery, bar, banks, cafes etc) and is a good base to explore lively Genoa; it's a 15 min walk downhill to the Centro Storico/bars and restaurants and a further 10 mins from the Porto Antico. Obviously that means a walk uphill or up steps on the way back though there is a 80c fee lift available up from Via Septembre XX which is about 5 mins from the hotel. There is also a well attended taxi rank opposite the hotel.
Would almost certainly stay here again if I'm ever in Genoa.
