Great staff and great coffee
Posted Aug 24, 2014
We booked this hotel because of the description given, which stated that it is close to Brignoli train station and within walking distance to the main attractions of Genova. Although this is true, be prepared to do some serious walking, even if you're planning on accessing the public bus system. I need to also mention that the walk from Brignoli train station to the hotel is all uphill. My son and I are fairly fit and the walk to the hotel with our luggage was not fun. They have free parking for about five or six cars. So if you're on a budget and are travelling by car, this hotel could be good for you. You will have to take a taxi if you're arriving from the larger, Central train station. Our cab ride to the Genova airport was about 20 EUR. The best part about this hotel is the friendly staff and the bar. These guys know how to make your favourite type of coffee with the cafe' style machine. Breakfast is fresh daily with hard boiled eggs, the Genovese focaccia, pastries, toast, cereals, fruit etc. The wireless can be frustrating. It was very intermittent in the room and you need to ask for a new password often, but this is typical in most small scale hotels in Italy. If you've never been to Genova, try not to wonder in the narrow alleys in the city at night. It can be somewhat uncomfortable. having said that, Genova is a fabulous city within close proximity to some of the best beaches on the Liguria Coast, great history, art and architecture.
