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.

... Alps and the Apennines. Longitudinally it extends from the border with France and the French Riviera (or Côte d'Azur) near Ventimiglia (a former customs post) to Capo Corvo (also known as Punta Bianca) which marks the Eastern end of the Gulf of La Spezia and is close to the border with Tuscany. The Italian Riviera thus includes nearly all of the coastline of ...
... I got back in the car again. Because I didn't take any photo's today I thought I would share some of Dave's foodie snaps he has been taking. Mitch always wants to know what we have eaten when we are away, so Dave has been taking a photo of everything that we eat! It was driving me crazy at first, but now it's just funny. We are those stupid tourists taking photos of their dinner that we normally laugh at! So enjoy our many platters of mixed meat, cheese, cappuccino's and ...
... they have in those inserts to the weekend papers, where they ask those questions like “What are you listening to at the moment?” or “Whats your favourite movie?”, a question is sometimes asked “What are you reading at present?” It may surprise you to know that in between blogging, dancing, eating, gyming, designing wardrobes for a demanding and fashion conscious monkey, drinking cocktails and of course sight-seeing, I am actually finding ...
... Was a great ride with lovely old buildings round each bend. On the waterfront was a maritime museum with an old sailing ship and submarine, together with a stret market with stalls selling clothes, bags etc. Came back about 11am to recharge batteries (personal and IPad), sunbath and lunch. Headed off about 1345 stopping at a coffee shop with free wifi to catch up with ...
... millimeters from the retaining wall - which was, by the way, holding back the entire mountainside. So, we had a mountain on one side, and a sheer drop on the other…..AND we were passing a car! Upon disembarking from the bus, I remember thinking….LET'S DO IT AGAIN! Another gentleman shared…"that's what we used to call an E-ticket ride" - I, of course, concurred with a chuckle.
