                        Staff very nice, beds large, room nice, very close to train station.

                        only one functioning lift made it a hassle getting to and from room. Breakfast pretty minimal

                        Lovely staff with a great big room which I loved. Breakfast was good, lots of cereals and fresh fruit and yogurt to choose from, basic tasteless toast. If you want a cappucino, ask the staff, otherwise you get the filtered stuff, which is sometimes stewed. Good base to get around Genoa from, near port, and easy to walk into main other areas or get the train out to some lovely villages like Nervi for 2 euros.

                        The sauna does work, but you have check times and ask them to arrange this. Jacuzzi wasnt working, which was a shame, as that would have been perfect to relax with. Completely communal gym and sauna space and shower so if thats not your thing you might want to call reception before you go down and check if anyone else is using it.

                        Happy with the overall quality , location and service provided. Only negative is it does not have a proper lounge area to meet people.

                        Need a lounge area in reception

                        The price compared with the services.

                        To change the old name with the new one in order to reduce the confusions in the location.

                        The staff were cordial and offered easy parking for the car.

                        The hotel has earned it's name - Standard... It is not a 4-star hotel by any standard though. The beds were not comfortable, the carpet old, tv only had local reception and was tiny. The breakfast was less then standard.

                        Wonderful Location, close enough to walk to train station and to Cruise ships, also very close to waterfront activities.

                        Decor a bit tacky.

                        Location, family room.

                        There was a problem with the hot water and as a result, everyone had to have cold showers for two days... This was resolved the day we left.

                        The front desk staff was friendly, knowledgable and very efficient. The guest rooms were comfortable and very clean. Housekeeping staff is outstanding. Excellent selections available for the continental breakfast. Sorry did not see any egg items available.

                        I suggest that the front lobby and reception areas be upgraded to create a positive impression upon arrival. My first impression upon arrival in the lobby area made me question the status and quality of the guest rooms. Fortunately, my overall experience was very positive.

                        away from the centre so nice a quite on a night, also not to far to walk for sightseeing. It is ok for use as a base

                        could do with some new carpets

                        The hotel location is just great (about 1 minute from the central train station). We booked deluxe room and it was very comfortably designed (two levels).

                        It is very close to the train station, which was convenient for us since we were using it as a stopover on the way to Florence. Breakfast was included, and it was good.

                        Close to the station.

                        Air conditioning hardly worked, cleaners kept opening the windows, which let in burnt cooking smells and hot air.
