                    • Older travelers

                      The reception staff on both days were extremely helpful about maps, walking routes, attractions etc. Hotel also in a good location - close to train, port and old city. Our room was a good size, and had a kettle to make tea and coffee!

                      Our room was on the first floor, at the front of the hotel, and even with the shutters and windows shut was very noisy. Noise continued outside (traffic and people) until about 3am and started up again at 6am.

                      I had a very good welcome from the staff. I loved the old lift and Art Nouveau feel of the place. very big, comfortable, clean rooms. I could move in!

                      There was nothing bad about this place. We had a great stay and were made to feel very welcome.

                      The hotel was ideally located, the room beautiful, the staff friendly and the breakfast delicious. All in all, a very pleasant stay.

                      parking at a nearby garage suggested by the hotel was rather expensive at 18 Eiros per day.

                      Traveling by train, the location is excellent...just a few minutes from the Genova Principe Stn. Staff were very helpful and the room was modern, clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was included and offered lots of variety.

                      The rooms were comfortable, it was a nice surprise to have plush bath robes and slippers provided in the room. The hotel provided a wonderful buffet breakfast and we were pleasantly surprised by the excellent quality of the food at Novecento, the restaurant attached to the hotel.

                      It was disappointing that the hotel shuttle to the airport, one of the reasons for picking the hotel, did not start up early enough for our flight.

                      The location is close to the Principe Train Station and the cruise docks, and also close to restaurants and old harbor. The fact that it is located in an historic building. A smaller boutique-style hotel. Breadkfast buffet was excellent.

                      I wished they supplied more information about Genova - as we found out later, that the entrance to the tram going up the mountain is located right next door.
