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.

Real 5 stars experience at an affordable price. The look & feel of this impressive hotel is comparable to hotel costing 300 Euro per night. Room decoration and cleanness, breakfast and exercise room are all superb. The location is within walking distance from all major attractions and shopping centers in Genoa including the football stadium. Walk north on via corsica 500 meters then take the public elevator on the right to reach via settembre and you are all set from there.
We stayed 4 nights, April 2013 with our 7 years old kid and even got to see the Inter Milan football team who also stayed in this hotel.

Few things to note:
1. Parking - costs 35 euros a day, if you choose to use the hotel parking. Well, that's a bit drastic however note that parking on the street for a full day will cost you 30 = (2.5 X (20-8))
If you arrived exhausted after flying from Tel Aviv and driving from Nice, France in the middle of the night like us that's a bargain. But the next day take your car and park it on the street. You can easily find parking within 500 meters range (Via Mora Del Prato seem to have free parking places any time of day and there are plenty of automatic ticket machines).
2. Room service - charges extra 10 euros for every delivery and the plates are really small (but tasty) if you are with kids and able to walk, consider the McDonald's not far away on Via Settembre.
3. Pool - very classy and relatively small. This is not an Olympic pool and not really good for swimming.

I would not call the breakfast fantastic. Dinner was fine but a bit stingy on the veggies. Bedroom was spacious but the bathroom a little cramped. The staff, in particular the front desk, the dining room and bar were great. Friendly and helpful. I would stay again with pleasure.

Room Tip: We had room 208 at the rear of the hotel. Very quiet.

Nice hotel - the highest spec in Genoa. Located a bit away from the hustle & bustle of the city though.
Rooms are to a high spec. However, there was no free drinking water in the room & I could not work out how to turn off the light under the basin in the bathroom, so it glowed all night.

From the end of the road are amazing views out over the port.

I was very glad to come back to this hotel with my family and friends to enjoy our vacations in Genova. In comparison with my last visit hotel has changed brand from Bentley and management as well, but quality has only improved. During this visit my family highly appreciated swimming pool and turkish sauna. Breakfast was very comprehensive and tasty, we dinered in reastaurant three times and also enjoyed the food. Staff is very polite and helpful. Now i can confirm that hotel is the best choice in Genova both for the business trip and family holidays with children.
