“Very good, but...”
Reviewed 7 April 2012 via mobile

We visited this hotel when staying a couple of days in Genova to visit old friends and the cruise around the region.
The hotel is nice, with modern and comfortable rooms. Generally service is good and staff is kind and caring. There is a nice lounge bar and restaurant which are good if you are here to relax.
What we liked a lot is the charming atmosphere given by the setting, next to the small marina behind the Genoa's airport. When you arrive you may in fact be disappointed since you need to go through the airport area which is not exactly fascinating. Don't give up and carry on. When you arrive to the place it will be ok.
Note: if you are with your car arriving is easy. If you arrive with flight you need to book their shuttle or take a taxi. The place is just next to the airport but you would have to walk all the way around the raceways for 20 mins.
Only one negative remark. We chose a room with steam bath. That is a great idea but it is not engineered well and you fill the bath with humidity and it is not ventilated properly.

Stayed April 2012

What a great surprise, we ot there after 11 pm, just in time to have a pizza next door but we could see much in the hotel. After a night of very comfortable sleep what a great surprise the view from the balcony! Loved it so much that we decided to stay our last night as well. Very short ride to the airport and good little farinata place by the marina.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the marina

The staff (Loraina and Julie) spoke outstanding english were very courteoues and helpful in directions to places in town. It is a fantastic view of not only the mountains, but also of the harbor full of yachts tied up at the marina. Less than 1/2 mile from airport and a good area of restaurants to try different Italian food. Although the hotel was fantastic and the stay well worth the value, do not accept a high number room if staying over the weekend and you want to sleep at night. My only regret is I had a high number (20) room. The high number rooms are over the Marina Place Cafe and the music is extremly loud on Friday nights and goes into the wee hours of the morning.

Room Tip: Lower number rooms 1-9 are quieter at nights on the weekends

My fiance and I stayed at MarinaPlace resort while in Genoa for my daughter's wedding on 8 September 2011. The MarinaPlace was the perfect place for a wedding reception. We were treated like royalty, and the rooms were clean and comfortable and the food was awesome.

At the reception, we ate for 4 hours straight and the food presentation was such a wonderful addition to the fun and excitement. There was so much thought and detail put in to the meal preparation, and the chef entertained us with a story behind many of the courses.

When we had time to sit back, we relaxed with a coffee out on the patio with family, while taking in the glamor of the beautiful yaghts and distant mountains. What a marvelous back drop for our photos.

I want to thank the staff and management of MarinaPlace for helping create a magical setting for my daughter's receiption.

I highly recommend MarinaPlace if you're staying in Genova. It's convenient to city attractions, like the Aquarium of Genova.

Julie Taylor - mother of the bride.

Room Tip: Choose a room that faces the harbor. The view is fantastic.

We stayed 3 lovely nights at the MarinaPlace in September. The hotel exceeded our expectations!
OUTSTANDING STAFF: Upon arrival the check in was simple (English was excellent) and the staff was incredibly welcoming! Throughout our entire stay the staff was extremely accommodating even for the smallest requests (e.g. extra towels, writing utensils, a flip chart, etc.). It is quite apparent hotel management holds a high regard for quality staff and only hires the best.
WORLD CLASS DINING: The dining at MarinaPlace was more than exceptional. Each course was unique and tantalizing – scallops with oyster leaf, borage ravioli in walnut sauce, slowly roasted suckling pig – WOW! Some of the best food I have ever experienced. The chef and staff are truly talented and worthy of much applause.
WONDERFUL ROOMS: The room was wonderful – large, modern, clean, clean, clean and very comfortable indeed. Our view overlooked the Marina with mountains in the backdrop – gorgeous! I really appreciated the architectural design of the rooms as they were designed to let in natural light – even in the shower area ‘ )
Comments on location: The MarinaPlace was conveniently located near to the airport (but you don’t notice the planes as the airport is very tiny with few flights), basic necessities are nearby in small shops (liquor, convenience store, ATM, etc.), and there are even a few small restaurants and bars that were very nice as well.
We had a wonderful stay and look forward to our return!!
