The 3-star Nuovo Nord is an affordable hotel enjoying a wonderfully central location in Genoa's historic centre. Set 50 m from Genova Piazza Principe train station, everything is just walking distance away.
Genoa's famous port is just a 5-minute walk away from friendly Hotel Nuovo Nord***, as are museums and the city's Aquarium, the largest in Europe. Shopping districts are a 10-minute stroll away and this area has great transport links, with buses and the Metro located nearby.
Nuovo Nord's staff can book transfers, tickets or restaurant tables for you, as well as a variety of interesting city tours. An extensive Italian-style buffet breakfast is available daily in the elegant restaurant hall.
As we were travelling by train we found the Hotel's location very handy to Termini Railway Station. It was also a relatively quiet area which felt quite safe and was close to several restaurants and a mini mart. It was handy for taking hop-on/hop-off bus trips near the railway station and we also were able to walk from here across town to Tivoli fountain, the Spanish Steps, Pantheon and Piazza Navona. A fair walk but not too difficult. The breakfast had a good choice of fruit, cereals, cold meats etc. It had a good bathroom and the bedroom was double-glazed and quiet.
The bed was rather hard! The small reception area for guests looked nice but seating was not very comfortable.
Close proximity to the station and airport bus.
Some of the rooms in the hotel did not have airconditioning which is contrary to what they have advertised on the webpage. The hotel is still under construction especially in the hall way. The lights were so dim that cleaners were made to vacuum in the dark (makes me wonder how clean the place really is). Showers were not functional and water continued to flood the bathroom. The place therefore had a really damp smell. Noise is badly insulated. Reviews from other guests did not reflect any of the above, which was why I had booked this hotel to begin with. Would have looked for alternate hotels if I had known of the above in advance.
Great hotel. Good location, very close to the train station (Genove P.P not Genove Brignole). Clean rooms, very nice staff just ask them anything.
Nothing. Everything was great.
There were no facilities for having breakfast at the hotel - probably a temporary feature.
Great location. Very gentle staff. Very confortable. Great value for money.
The windows don´t isolate very well the noise that came from the street.
