Wonderfully kind and helpful staff

Posted Aug 17, 2014
The hotel is small and little wanting in regards to furnishings. The single bed was a hard old divan, the bar fridge was on the blink and you could hear everyone walking around on the next floor. On the plus side, this hotel was close to the major city sites and the staff were absolutely so helpful and friendly.

Genoa Central

Posted May 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
Perfect for my needs.Nearby to train,boat and bus connections.A small old fashioned hotel who's level of service with a smile could teach a lesson to many others.Two minute walk to the port area and Via Garibaldi,five minutes to Plaza de Ferrari and several fine restaurants.Fine breakfast and free internet usage.I can recommend and hopefully will return soon.

Central hotel with good breakfast

Posted May 11, 2014
Pros: Staff is very helpful, breakfast is good.
Location: It's worth a visit to a nearby church: San Filippo Neri, a hidden gem on Via Lomellini, a 3-minute walk from the hotel.
We really enjoyed our stay, the hotel is close to Via Garibaldi and walking distance to the harbour.

Fantastic Location to Explore Genoa and Area!

Posted Sep 23, 2013
Pros: Location
Cons: Wireless internet signal strength
Location: The seven-stop commuter funicular at the Piazza is well worth the trip up to see the view of Genoa. The train to Cinque Terre is very convenient.
My sister and I stayed 2 nights at the Hotel Helvetia in Genoa in the beginning of September 2013. The room was quite large and very clean. The wireless internet connection worked fairly well. The friendly staff directed us to a parking spot for our car that was very close and easy to get to. We were able to pull right up front of the hotel to drop our luggage off first. The staff also provided a map of the area with suggestions on where to eat and sites to see. They were very attentive and helpful. The hotel location is fantastic. Our room looked out over busy Piazza Della Nunziata but when you closed the window, it was still quite quiet. There are so many shops and restaurants nearby. A seven-stop commuter funicular begins at the Piazza and it is worth the trip up to see the view of Genoa. The hotel is situated amongst some very impressive landmarks and the architecture is gorgeous. We had decided to stay in Genoa so we could visit Cinque Terre but then we were sorry that we did not dedicate more time to exploring this really interesting and beautiful city. The Hotel Helvetia is a very good location to explore the city from. It is also very close to the train station. We really enjoyed the hotel and would highly recommend it. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again.

Great service

Posted Sep 16, 2013 on Hotels.com
The staff were very accomodating. Rooms were clean and hotel was great in general, except for the location (not so nice at night if you are alone).
