Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Hotel Metropoli Genoa
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.

We left the hotel at about 08:30 am and made our way to the Rialto Alilugano landing stage. The boat arrived on time and weset off....once again in a sea mist but not as severe as yesterday! Within an hour we were at the airport and soon in our car and on our way west to Savignone. We travel mostly on the autostrada so no photos until we are close to ...
Had to vacate the room by 0700. Meant the buffet was packed and barely seat to sit on as the majority of the 4,000 passengers leave today. We then sat in the smelly casino from 0830 until 0945, then were led to the departure hall to battle it out with hundreds (they disembark small groups of 100 at a time, staggering the times by 15 minutes) sounds good, but you are not told which section your luggage is in( all luggage we have tagged with color codes the ...
... breakfast we walked down the mountain fior about 800 m to the beach and stayed there until 3:30 at this beautiful place. We than walked back up and prepared to look for Alberto so we took the bus to Sori. After asking a bit around we found this incredible place on a paradisiacal spot on the edge of a rock where he works in this bar/restaurant. It was real great to see him again, he offered us a few drinks and mine was pretty strong so I felt like I could ...
... didn't linger over breakfast. Ate as fast as we could before heading back up to the room to pack. We actually weren't ready until about 11:30, but the hotel didn't seem to mind. We had a few hours to burn up before our train to Florence that was leaving around 3pm. Once again I turned to my trusty Rick Steve's book and we didn't the recommended walk through Santa Margherita Ligure. It took you out to the end of the very long boat dock and you could look back on ...
... on the Corso Italiana overlooking the ocean as I write this. It's overcast today and my pictures don't look that great. There are only a few people walking by. I try to eavesdrop and see if I can pick up some of the Italian they are speaking. 9 time out of ten I can only make out a few words. That's ok, I don't like eves dropping anyway. Hahahaha.
I'm going to make my way back. It will take me about an hour or more. I hope ...
