“Decent location and cheap”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2011

Be aware that it in the University area- okay for a night. My room was fine (unseasonably warm October) and I slept with the window open but one of my colleagues said he felt like that the hotel was piping heat into his room- despite him opening the window the room was very hot and very stuffy. Breakfast below par. Clean and relatively cheap (at 87 Euro including subar cold breakfast). Price is all that recommends this place.

Room Tip: Not sure how one avoids the hot and stuffy rooms that my colleagues had (and are reported in TA). I...

The Hotel is great, but not located in a very nice area, although very close to a major train station.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2011

We stayed here on Easter Sunday during our road trip through Northern Italy in April.

It was fine, no major issues with it. The receptionist was nice and helpful. Our car was taken to a garage offsite by a random guy. My boyfriend was slightly reluctant about this but we had to go with it and it was fine.

The room was better than I expected - nothing amazing but it was clean, the bed was comfy, space was fine and the bathroom was all in good working order. Double glazing was much appreciated and we got a decent night's sleep.

Breakfast was a bit of a funny affair. We paid our 5 Euro as it was Easter Monday and we weren't sure if much was going to be open, plus we wanted to get on the road. Everything was in packet form though, even the pastries. We didn't experience this again throughout the rest of our trip so I'm not sure if it's common in hotels of this price. I reckon you could go out and find something fresher and better, plus the breakfast room is pretty cramped with furniture.

The public parts of the hotel, e.g. reception, breakfast room, have been done out in a modern, Ikea boutique style. It's quite a sprawling building with a narrow entrance so look out for the hotel sign on the street as you may miss the door.

The location was great, very central. Near the train station if you need it but also down the road from the port and the various sights and bars/restaurants in the older part of town.

I'd probably stay here again (without paying for the brekkie) but think they could knock 5-10 Euro off the price per night.

Dear Guest, thank you for your comment. As you probably know the breakfast romm, dates back to 800, has been completely renovated and is characterized by high ceilings with original hand-made ancient stucco, floors with typical Genoese grit and slate with geometrical and floeral decorations and the renovation was finished few weeks before your arrival.
Already from May we are now serving a continental breakfast with coffee, milk, tea, fresh croissant, biscuits, rusks, butter, jams, nutella and fresh fruit juices.
We hope to have the possibility to welcome you again in our Hotel to test our new breakfast.
Thank you

This hotel is NOT to be recommended under any circumstances. Our room was hot and stuffy and when we asked for the aircon remote were told that these were only available from May onwards. The receptionist was extremely unhelpful with her answer always being "I only work here" never mind the fact that I was "only a paying Guest" there. The shower was either ice cold or burning hot. No amount of jiggling the controls could rectify this. After 15 minutes I gave up. Same response from reception. All in all a terrible experience and I would never recommend this hotel to anyone else.

In the north of Italy we generally open the air condition from june to september. This is due to the comfortable temperature we have, especially here, in Genoa.
Our receptionists are generally really appreciated. They are very nice with all our customers and helpful. Our hotel has been completely renewed and the showers work perfectly.
