Everything about this hotel was fine; clean, comfortable room with well-equipped bathroom; good breakfast, friendly staff. However, its location is somewhat strange. Other reviews point out that parking is across the main road in an underground lot and the hotel provides a ticket which does save you a bunch of Euros. However, if you attempt to actually drive to the front of the hotel in order to check in, you'll find that the street is one-way in the wrong direction; so you'll have to drive in via a street (only a block long) which is pedestrian-only except for a few oddball hours for commercial deliveries. As traffic signs in Italy are merely suggestions, I entered that street in my car and found my way to the hotel before local law-enforcement would notice. Be forewarned that you should probably park the car in the underground public lot at the Porto Antico and then roll your luggage to the hotel a few hundred feet away.
But that's really the only negative and, in fact, that short, one-block drive was an adventure, of sorts. Porto Antico is quite interesting and the marina full of muli-million dollar boats is something to behold. We enjoyed our evening walk along the harbor.
I believe part of the movie "Summer in Genoa" was filmed right in this area.
Anyway; if I ever return to Genoa, I'd stay at this hotel again because I know now where to park. :D
