When we arrived in Genova, after the long trip, we were exhausted, but the hotel staff was there to welcome us and give all the help we needed. We sat and rest in one of the lounges located by the ground floor and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere drinking a nice cappuccino.
We had a quite big room, the parquet floor, the colour and decorations, the bathroom newly equipped... everything was so fine and spotless and new!!!! The room was facing a square, which is so charming surrounded by ancient buildings and so alive. Once you are out, the city is right there and everything is so close by that we could berely believe it! Museums, buildings, churches, boutiques and all kind of shops...including delis' to take home some special gourmets...!
Breakfast is continental, with a nice touch of local style serving the special bread called "focaccia", croissants, fresh fruits and alot more...
One thing I would improve is maybe the size of the elevator but the welcoming atmosphere and the excellent treatment pays off for this little detail. Overall we had a wonderful stay and will suggest it anytime...hope to be back!!!
What a beautiful experience!
We are a couple and we stayed at this hotel for a few days. The check-in was very fast and the staff very helpful. They gave us maps and infos about the city without even asking! We felt like we were home and even in the room everything was so clean and tidy!
The position of the hotel is absolutely central and we did not have any problem to get around and visit all the monuments and museums.
I was delighted with our hotel in Genoa. Hotel Metropoli has been recently renovated, and you can tell by the beautifully decorated and comfortable rooms. The lobby is very nice too. You cannot beat the location, in the center of the historic area, and walking distance to many places. The staff was very friendly and even allowed us a very late checkout. They also held our luggage for the day while we explored the town, prior to our departure from Genoa. Do yourself a favor and just take a leisurely walk along the many streets. They are so charming and interesting.
Loved the hotel, staff and location
We stayed for one night at this hotel in June 2004. When we arrived, the receptionist told us that the hotel did not have a parking space but there was paid parking nearby. Since we arrived on Sunday afternoon, she suggested us to park on a street a few blocks away which was free on Sunday until 8 am Monday morning.
We forgot to check about the parking space and it is important that if you are travelling in Europe with a car that you check with your hotels whether or not they have parking facilities. Otherwise, you have to park a few blocks from your hotel and make a few trips to your car to add the parking meters to avoid getting a ticket.
However, after seeing the room, we all felt a lot better (we booked two rooms). Our rooms were beautiful and spacious with wooden floor and modern drapes. It was immacutely clean. There was a kettle to boil water for our coffee and tea in each room. Our bathroom was a bit small but the other family has a really spacious one.
The front-desk staff was well-trained and very helpful. The lady receptionist gave me detailed and accurate direction to go to Cinque Terre. The evening staff suggested us a nice restaurant to go for dinner (I think it is called Le Cantine Squarciafico at Piazza Invrea). We had wonderful pesto and sea bass.
The location of the hotel is also very centralized. It is within minutes from many of the historical monuments. The old port is also within walking distance.

Casual start to the morning with a croissant and coffee for breakfast, followed by 6 hours walking around Old Town Genoa. The sights around the upper end are much better than the port, we sat on the steps of a church for half an hour and did some people watching.
Huge thunderstorm came in and it poured with rain so we found ...
The day began transiting the Gulf of Genoa enroute to our next port of call. Dramatic Genoa is Italy's biggest port, and one city of the industrial "iron triange" which drives the modern economy. Genoa is the capital of Liguria and the sixth largest city in Italy. The population is approximately 600.000 and with 1.5 Million people in the Genoa Metropolitan area. Genoa has ...
... There was also live music in the lounges around the ship and a disco. No excuse for being bored!. One thing that Emma especially enjoyed was the dance lessons. Everything from the Samba to the Cha cha cha. She was in to it. Olivia liked to relax by the pool and have a more laid back cruise. Our room was on the 11th floor and we had a balcony. It was very handy to the pools and buffet on the 13th floor. We walked from our hotel to the ship and were ...
... by waiters in starched white outfits, a brass letter box or wrought iron gates revealing pebbled courtyards though their bars. I loved the shutters in their contrasting colours or darker shade of the painted walls. Some opened like a cat flap with the hinge on top, some shutters one could fling open wide, many were closed and some had a shutter within a shutter that was propped open. The sky was grey and matched the grey ocean that was pounding on the pebbled ...
... inside is done with black and white marble. When we are done admiring the church, we head over to Largo Della Zecca to catch a funicular up to Righi. The old city walls surrounding Genova are the second longest in the world. We are intrigued by the people using the funicular for everyday life. The town climbs up the hillside into different neighborhoods and the locals that live there use the funicular to go food shopping and to work. We get off at the top and walk ...
