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.

Sunday we headed for the hills, in Ian's wonderful Fiat Cinqeciento, it's amazingly spacious inside and we enjoyed a picnic in the hills. There was no one else about everyone else was on the coast. There was a lovely river which I would have swum in but the others were clearly nothing like so impressed.

We are now finally in Italy, where we will be staying for the next 6 weeks. In 2 days time we will be moving on to Cinque Terre; but in the mean time we will be taking a break in Genoa. Our hostel is a little odd. They require all guests to leave the hostel for 4 hours in the middle of the day for "cleaning". Odd, considering this is the first tme we've heard of such a hostel rule in our 3 months of traveling. Out we ...
... Bradley Cooper, and every other drop dead georgeous guy to shame. Honestly the eyes and the stubble, that seems as popular here as in Perth, were unbelievable. We were the only non Italians on the flight and I am seriously considering taking a flight regularly just to watch the men.
We were picked up by Massimo, who is very nice and married, but I got what I wanted and that was a quick drive from the airport.
The apartment ...
