    Location is perfect. In the lobby there is delicious free coffee for guests.

    There is an underground parking nearby, called Minerva. If you have a good car, be carefull, they can scratch it easily. It's kind of normal for Italy to park cars by sound ob bumper. When we took our car back after 2 days from this parking it was a big round scratch at the rare bumper.

    there was no information booklet about the hotel for example check out time and facilities available

    Small and nice hotel, very well positioned, right in the center of the city. An ancient building, yet fully renovated. Good value for money overall.

    Get ready to the narrow spaces, for example in the only elevator or the breakfast room, or to have your room's window right in front of another one. This is typical of old Genoa buildings, but some people may dislike this.

    This was the second time we stayed in Hotel Helvetia and if we go to Genoa once again we will definately stay in this hotel.It has a very good location, close to everything. The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. There is a free and rather speedy internet.

    We stayed in this hotel in April and the heating was very poor.

    Great location, close to everything and nice staff 24/7

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent, and the hotel is in a prime location.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The staff was friendly, excellent location, good value for the money.

    Traffic noise from the street (but this is due to the location), they could serve some more fresh fruits for the breakfast.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    The staff were multilingual and really friendly and helpful. The location is perfect for the university, port and town centre and opposite a magnificent church.

    My room was a bit small but adequate -not a luxury hotel but you wouldn't expect that for the price. Breakfast room very crowded and noisy -best to get up early!

  • Couple
    8.2

    Great location, not too far from the main station and not too far from the Port or the main square. Staff were very helpful, esp the lady on the day always helped with questions and queries.

    The only problem I found was on check out they wanted payment in cash which I didn't have so had to go find an ATM and get out enough. I told the guy on the desk I didn't have cash and he gave me no other option, there was a efpos machine on the desk so no idea why I couldn't use my card. Put a whole dampener on the stay.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    The price was reasonable and the room was large.

    No parking on-site. Had to park in a underground parking garage a couple blocks away. Air conditioner did not work.

  • Single

    Good location (200 mt from Porto Antico), very helpful staff

    Sometimes rooms look very small

  • Couple

    Good hotel with excellent location. The staff is extremely polite and kind. They will help you with any kind of problems and everything is submitted with instant response and a big smile.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The location was excellent for seeing the main attractions of Genova, though the public ones were not open on the Monday we were there.
