Loved this historical hotel. Looking up through the oval lobby up the 6 stories to the stunning stain-glassed skylight and walking up the gentle carpeted stairs sets the tone for this amazing old palace, nicely restored. Loved the heavy doors on the rooms, the dining hall and the roof top restaurant. Breakfast included was tremendous- an expansive buffet with everything...

Old timer which is undergoing the deep renovation. Refurbished rooms are super, the old ones are just nice. Staff very polite and helpful. Lovely place to overnight both for business or vacation with sightseeing.

We spent our last night in Europe at this elegant hotel. It was a splurge for us and I was not disappointed. Made me feel special. Official description of hotel is true. Check out the main staircase.

On arrival we were upgraded to a junior suite, a large room with an excellent bathroom and a small terrace that would have been good in warm weather. However, it was on the second floor right by the conference rooms. The first day was fine as the meeting finished before the evening, but on the second day there was a...

I would like to give this a higher rating and will stay again when next in Genoa. In terms of location this is as central as you can get; it is also within walking distance of one of the main railway stations (handy as we were using Genoa as a base). It is also very elegant in the public areas...

Old building with a lovely and elegant architecture, classy! This hotel is in the central of the genova, italy. Close to everywhere, outlets, cafes, restaurants, attractions and public transportation. Friendly front liner, clean and comfort place to stay with a reasonable price. If this hotel provide kettle and full toiletries (no comb and tootbrush) will be perfect!
