                          • Near station major sites and suggested a nice beach a short train ride away. The hotel staff are friendly and its rooms are large. Breakfast buffet is adequate.

                            The location is not noisy.

                          • Location was great for us and hotel staff were very accommodating. The front desk were particularly good, courteous and obliging, the receptionists were excellent. The room was very clean, spacious, the breakfast was very good also.

                            Hence, the view was quite poor and windows shut was very noisy.

                          • The location perfect for us, convenient for railway station and this hotel is absolutely a good value for your money. Staff is friendly and helpfull, room and bath are spacious, the breakfast is complimentary.

                            An excellent oasis of luxury in a busy city, up a hill and the lobby was very small. Internet was quite slow.

                          • Perfect location for coming/ and convenient for train station Good price Clean. The hotel décor was lovely and staff understood &. Our room was large and the elevator was charming.

                            Genoa is a pretty unattractive city, grubby, even a bit smelly near the waterfront, and the heated towel rail didn' and rude receptionist I have ever encountered.

Pleasant and enjoyable stay, beautiful building, free internet access at terminal in lobby. The staff is helpful, courteous, bathroom is excellent and breakfast is great.

                            The area was a little ruf, the lady at reception was literally rude and wiFi in room was ridiculously slow.
