                                        Genoa International Airport is about 39.8km away.

                                        Head northeast on Via Pionieri e Aviatori d'Italia, take the third exit and stay on Via Pionieri e Aviatori d'Italia, continue onto Via Enrico Melen, follow signs for Genova Ovest/E80/Via Serravalle and merge onto A10/E80, take the exit toward A7, follow signs for A7/Milano/Livorno and merge onto A7. Take the exit onto A12 toward Genova Est/Livorno, merge onto Piazzale Genova, continue onto Via Sant'Anna, continue onto Corso Goffredo Mameli, follow onto Via Monsignor Giustiniani, continue straight onto Piazza 4 Novembre, follow onto Lungomare Vittorio Veneto, take the first exit onto Via Montebello/SP1 and turn right onto Via Aurelia Levante/SP1.

                                        • Nice view, good quality standard Wellness and helpful staff. Excellent pool/ room comfort/breakfast and fantastic restaurant. Beautiful spa.

                                          Incredibly bad for a hotel of this class and in a foodmecca like Italy.

                                          Basic amenities in the bathroom for such an expensive hotel and poor breakfast of tinned fruit.

                                        • Excellent location, clean hotel and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Service at desk and breakfast was very nice.

                                          The shower in the single room was too small to allow any movement.

                                          The breakfast is very limited for a 4 stars hotel.

                                          Unfriendly staff and bathroom was not clean.

                                          The worst hotel staff i' and expensive internet. Poor bar facilities at the pool, basic repetitive breakfast very little choice.

                                          The service was very poor and air conditioning did not work high outer temperatures. Breakfast choice was not really satisfactory.

                                        • View and pool spectacular, fantastic hotel. Friendly and helpful reception staff, very beautiful room. The hammam and the sauna are very nice, breakfast is extremely limited, the fruit is just grape+grape+very few pieces of some other fruit.

                                          The quality doesn’t match the price charged, the balcony is very small and there are not chairs, food needs to be improved.

                                        • The sea view was amazing and the hotel front desk was helpful. The staff were helpfull and my room was extremely comfortable and a bit luxurious. Breakfast was very good as well.

                                          Poor quality, tiny shower and piano covered. Food was overpriced and not great.

                                        • Very nice terrace for breakfast and dinner, good facilities.

                                          Pool too deep for small children.

                                        • Good services, nice breakfast.

                                          Some staff seems quite new and are very noisy especially in the restaurants.
