“Nice Hotel in an Ethnic part of Barranquilla”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

I visited Genova Hotel in January/February 2012. A little piece of paradise in ethnic part of the city. The hotel was very clean with very nice staff. I spoke very little spanish and found staff in the hotel that were able to speak with me in english. Believe me if I wanted something they went out of their way to get it for me. The restauant offered a variety of food with good portion sizes. The wait staff were pleasant and eagar to please. The swimming pool was clean with sparking clear water. The pool area was relaxing. If wanting to visit other areas of the city a taxi is available to get you to and from for a responsible cost. No need to stay in expensive hotels when you stay at Genova Hotel and be treated like a star. I will return there.

A group of us stayed here one night upon arriving by flight into Barranquilla and one night before our flight out of Barranquilla. The hotel is in a sketchy part of town full that attracts all walks of night life into the several bars and strip clubs that surround the area. The daytime seemed to be fine, but there isn't much around.

The hotel itself is really clean and we noticed that the higher up the floors the more recently renovated the rooms. There's air conditioning, minibar (with reasonably priced items), television - all the typical amenities you'd find at a hotel. There's a really nice pool at the hotel and awesome food at the restaurant. Again, all reasonably priced.

The staff is really nice and if you're in need of something, like beer, at night and are reluctant to head out of the hotel, feel free to ask the staff. For a small tip, they'll grab you whatever you need from the outside world.

I stayed at Genova during Carnaval last Feb. It was much cheaper than the hotels in the the El Prado area -- and the reason why is location. Genova is located in a very bad and dangerous part of town. Any time you leave the hotel, you need to take a cab. The nice part of town is about a 10 minute cab ride away.

As long as you are okay with that, and don't mind being removed from the action, Genova is a solid choice -- especially during Carnarval. At other times, nicer hotels are more affordable.

The rooms are well maintained, pool area is very nice and restaurant is decent.

The hotel manager and activities director were also incredibly nice to us during our stay. They arranged tickets to the parades and invited us to be their guests in the stands. It was a wonderful gesture.

One other note: very few workers in the hotel speak English. It helps to speak at least a little Spanish.
