The couple who run the hotel are relaxed, friendly and very helpful. The view out of our window was fascinating, if you're interested in how the structure of the buildings has developed. The location is excellent for visiting the historic centre. It's also very close to the train station. The ferry terminals are close by and it's surprisingly easy to drive to or from the ferry terminals or the autostrada. I found cheap on street parking near the station and secure, expensive, underground parking behind the station.
I think we were in room 8. There is a long pipe run to the shower, so it takes a long time to get warm. That's ok, but once hot water arrived I found it impossible to adjust the mixer to achieve a constant temperature.
Convenient location near station and easy accessible to see the area of Genoa
lots of stairs to gain access to hotel
Staff polite and friendly. Perfect location. Hotel located in the street with bright lights. Close to flixbus station. To city center 20 min walk. Breakfast not bad, I liked coffee and croissants. They don't provide omelets.
Superb location between railway station and major palaces. Jazz club round the corner. Friendly staff.
For the price, few complaints.
We were only in Genoa overnight to get a flight into Rome. We came in by train from Santa Margherita so we were looking for something close to the railway station and cafes and restaurants. This suited us perfect we walked from the station with carry on luggage no challenges. Very affordable and we don’t mind steps the hotel was on the second floor. There was a kettle in the ri which is a rarity in Italy. We were able to walk to the Port area and the main area where the big fountain was. We ere surprised to see the umbrella Street while we were there. What a treat. If you are looking for economy stay close to eateries and station this may be an option. We ate at an Italian Restaurant callrd Puzzetia Ristorante Trieste about 3O metres up the road on the same side as hotel
We found it dark in our room and bathroom was small but for us we didn’t mind as we were only there to sleep as we left at 6am the following day.
