In Centre City. Near The Aquarium
i came to the hotel parking straight from France thanks to my car gps ,the staff at reception was perfect and answer my worries:how can i park safely my car.and sold me tickets for the boat to take us to the Nautica international.i was also advised to a very good traditional restaurant in the vicinity for a nice dinner.100% efficient.thanks. none
Quite expensive but the hotel is lovely, new but very well planned & designed with flair to give a great atmosphere - the location helps of course, being right on the water. Also a lot of little accessories were provided in the room. Unusually, as there is nearly always something to criticise, we could make no criticism of The Jolly - Marina at all.
Very good hotel located into marina. Yachts are all around.Fantastic bar and restaurant with perfect terase.
Paid for a regular room and got an awesome luxury apartment. Expensive (and full) parking, had to park in the (yet more expensive) Aquarium parking next door.
Great Location, central and easy walking distance to restaurants, marina, aquarium etc
view I must go away two days before and I must pay for all period. This condition is not correct.
The Hotel is well located but the staff, with rare exceptions, was not helpful at all. We needed a late check out ( around 2 PM ) to catch a plane and the lady at the desk told us she couldn't do it because the hotel was fully booked. However, acessing Booking.com we could easily see that there were, at least, 20 rooms available for the next day. We felt deceived because we were lied to.
there is no wide varity in food menu
nice large room very clean... good breakfast limited dining capability in the evening... arrival difficult with car.....
the valet parking
Location in the very center - good for walking around the city. Very good breakfast. Nice decoration. Free parking at the entrance is always occupied. Most probably you'll be advised to use public parking around the corner. Howewer cost is the same - 20 EUR per night.
Not much Horrible WIFI. Bad coffee and not many healthy choices at breakfast. Terrible parking. Nowhere to unload the car, the parking is slow, Off site and expensive. The Brustol has no door person and this hotel needs one.
Location is very good-- walking distance to areas of the city we wanted to visit. The best part of the experience was that the hotel personnel were able to direct us to local sights and restaurants where we had good experiences. The room itself & especially the bath are first rate.
building of the hotel is very nice, and it has a good location
Breakfast was great! The Liguri pasteries are goregeous! The size of the room was perfect for our family trip. The bathroom was also spacious and included enough room for all the cosmetics to fly around without bothering us really! It was also obvious that the ladies did a great job with the cleaning. It looked impecable every day we were there for 4 days. I loved the heart of the hotel which is the highlight of the place. Beautiful red carpet stairs in an ''accordeon''! The floor is a marvellous wooden floor most likely hand crafted. It would need some referbishment...
authenticity of the hotel, atmosfere
The hotel decoration and architecture. It is really nice place, very central and good for some shopping. Still very reasonable speaking about cost and price/quality Very narrow beds, as I was travelling with my son and we have separate single beds, but the size looked like the kid's one. Breakfast is poor.
Location Internet did not work
Good location, nice ambience, greta staircase. No ironing facilities provided after day hours! OK to not have one in the room but a 4* hotel should have somewhere to quickly iron a shirt - and the staff made no effort to think of something. Also dis not advise us there was train strike when we booked a cab to the station - the hotel should know things like this and offer to help.
Very good breakfast. Personnels very kind and helpful. It was raining all day :-(
Nice reception, clean rooms, good breakfast buffet rooms are small and there was unpleasant smell in the room
hotel location; comfort and cleanliness of room; helpfulness of staff, quality of breakfast and restaurant lack of internet capability to use my own laptop in room; limnited room service capabilty when we got in at 11:00 PM
OK in general as a 4 star hotel. Rooms are comfortable and clean enough. It was worth for price that I payed to stay with the family I booked two rooms under my name through your web site and confirmed by a mail directly to the hotel too, but it was reserved only one room, at last I was at the reception for a half an hour get the other room
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was excellent. The room had a bad smell.
Great location. Breakfast was good. Both rooms had bathtubs, which is a real plus in Europe! The parking garage was a little hard to get to due to one way streets and center city traffic. However, it was plenty roomy for an SUV.
its handy location we had a pre dinner drink in the bar on saturday night, 2 vodka & 1 coca cola, the charge was e24... even compared to london or new york 5 star hotel prices we felt it was scandelous...
Very close to the center and well communicated by bus. Muy cerca del centro y bien comunicado en autobús.
location is smply the best if you're up for historical city centre & shopping, soap/shower gel/shampoo in the room were very good))) staff is mostly unfriendly, and honestly this hotel is not like true 4*, more looks like strong 3*. I stayed in a "superior" room, but it is indeed very tiny yet has modern refurbishment and good stylish bathroom
Restaurant. Shower power was weak
Professional service, Nice people, Very clean rooms, nice price Not a lot of parking space! Not easy to find
This hotel is centraly located in the old part of town but it is set back and difficult to find with no view. Typical old hotel everything you would expect from a building of this perioud.
Location. Very nice in the middle of "old town". Very noisy. Rooms were not soundproof at all.
Excellent staff. Good location. Family Rooms.
Excellent location for old town, shopping, and train station for day trips. Room layout could have been designed a bit better, i.e. work desk too close to bed.
Perfect position for main areas and accessability to others. Staff were very helpful during trouble a) after bagsnatch b) getting transport to airport during strike. Staff Andrea (all) /Marina/Daniel v good.
The hotel was, clean, friendly, secure and private. I didn't care for the choice of jazz music in the breakfast room. Otherwise, a brilliant hotel in a brilliant city.
Location of the Hotel, and the Hotel's standart. You get what you expect. Charge for parking was over the top.
the hotel was good value,centrally situated with car parking facilities. we had a number of rooms a the hotel four rooms and we intend to use the hotel again as we come to Genova each year having previuosly used the Jolly Hotel nearby,
comfortable room, excellent location, helpful staff
in the center of the city
We liked that it was close to the port where we were embarking on a cruise(as well as the airport)--also, that we could walk to the aquarium.There were several restaurants within walking distance. The room was small and narrow but clean. They would not use our Visa credit card although it was the card we used to reserve the room. Luckily, we had a different card that worked. We were told the taxi ride from airport to hotel would be about 10-15 euro but we were charged 42!! So, get a price below 20 before getting into a cab!
Nice room and good bathroom, friendly staff. Central location in old city. There some problems with the free WIFI but the staff has done their best to solve it. Neighbourhood can be a bit disquiet at night.
Staff were really good: helpful and friendly. The location is excellant - right in the old port area.
Breakfast not excellent
By far the best hotel I stayed in during my trip in the Riviera. Excellent Air Conditioning.
Knowledgeable staff making good recommendations. Cleanliness.Provision of umbrellas--it rained heavily Breakfast room needs textiles--- a rug on floor / curtaining to stop the hard sound echoes due to too many hard surfaces in an enclosed room.
Everything but not the location. The location and that you cannot find the hotel we search 2 hours to find the hotel we asked a lot of people and we use GPS at all.
The location was great. The hotel is easy access to city center and seaside. The staffs were very cooperative especially who names Michaeil was very helpful. Thank you.
central location, atmosphere, friendliness, good breakfast bit noisy - windows did not seem to cut out the noise - but added to the atmosphere. car parking expensive - space outside the hotel very difficult to access, it would be better to go straight to the car park!
The hotel is in the corner of Genoa historical "carungi" triangle. It is very comfortable to go and see all the interesting in the historical center of Genoa. And special thanks to the hotel staff for our laguage, which stayed at the hotel during few hours till our depature to the C. Colombo aeroport. There was some auto`s noise from the street.
nice and comfortable rooms friendly staff ,great breakfast they charge my credit card when i did the reservation (15 days before)

Great location, really helpful and friendly staff, nice thata good breakfast was included.
Yes, very much. I would go again.
Welcome offered by the staff No
Perfect location. Friendly staff. Good breakfast.
The hotel is in a perfect locatino if you need to travel by train and still be in the centre of the city. Easy walking distance to all the main city locations. The staff is very friendly and really very helpful and professional. Rooms are clean, especially the bathroom. the room is maybe too basic, but it is within its price for value target.
nicew staff. good location for the train station and the city center. room was pretty basic.
Staff were friendly & efficient. We felt comfortable there. Well located in walking distance of all major attractions and facilities, including railway stations.
Great location right off Genova's famous food street Via San Vicenzo--public market and legendary focaccia just steps away. Short walk to Stazione Brignole. Very nice sound proofing, comfy beds, nice baths--a perfectly fine hotel for our overnight in Genova. The trash piled outside the hotel was slightly unnerving, but not enough to not return.
breakfast was great! there were Bread,Focaccia,Cereals,Cheese,Eggs,Hams,Yogurt, ...etc.The waiter gave us coffee,cappuccino,Cafe au lait, or whatever we asked them for.Also the location was really great! I could go to the main street (20 septembre)in less than 5 min. There was a supermarket (BILLA)close from the hotel. THe hotel staff were really kind The Wi-fi connection(free of charge)was not working well in the room.The connection was rather bad, so i had to do it on the lounge. Or we can do it when breakfast.
Location (near the railway station). Breakfast, internet access available by wireless. comfort none
Value for money
THe breakfast was excellent. Location was very convenient. A little noisy at night.
Good centre for visiting the old town of Genoa. Very convenient for transport. Had internet in all rooms and in lobby. Continental breakfast was good. Bed was narrow and hard. Hotel is on 3rd and 4th floors of old office building, and thus had little presence on the (pedestrian) road outside. Accessed by small and ancient 'cage' lift.
Free internet, very helpful staff. Breakfast could be improved
Nice staff and good quality/price ratio.
Theese room doors are not good as a hotel-room door. It look likes garage doors.
The staff at the hotel were very pleasant and eager to please. The hotel was a good combination of quirky and antique. The location is central. There was some street noise even though we were on the fifth floor.
Nice spacious room. The bathroom really small and no internet which it said there was only in the reception area. Can be alot of noise from outside during early hours of the morning.
only stayed one night, Good location and friendly and helpfull staff.
Just the location Really old rooms, poorly renovated. Weird smell in the whole hotel. Poor light.Poor window view. Awful decoration. Got a really ''cheap'' feeling during my stay
My girlfriend and I staied in Hotel Helvetia just one night during a weekend in Genova and all has been perfect! The staff is very friendly and really kind! The position is fantastic and the price is onest, it has been a fantastic choice for our week-end visiting the Acquario di Genova (see the distance in Google Maps)! This hotel is recomended referring to our direct experience! Maybe the room was a bit small but it is perfect for short trip!
Inexpensive accommodation close to station Room on busy street - very noisy
Great location, not too far from the main station and not too far from the Port or the main square. Staff were very helpful, esp the lady on the day always helped with questions and queries. The only problem I found was on check out they wanted payment in cash which I didn't have so had to go find an ATM and get out enough. I told the guy on the desk I didn't have cash and he gave me no other option, there was a efpos machine on the desk so no idea why I couldn't use my card. Put a whole dampener on the stay.
The hotel staff's ability to communicate in English and their willingness to provide a map of the area, walking directions, key points of interest, restaurant suggestions, information on train schedules, and taxi notification was wonderful. The hotel staff was able to accommodate everything that we needed and answer all of our questions. The service was top notch!
Conveniently close to train station and harbor; good breakfast served earlier than in most other hotels
Big room, separate bad for child
Rooms small... but not bad for European City standards. Staff very friendly.
the location the size of the room
Incredibly helpful staff. Central location. Easy to find. Room was spotlessly clean. Room was slightly on the small side - but we booked a basic room & it was fine for a couple of nights.
This Hotel had steps to get to reception and no help with elderly mother. Room very small and cramped wod not recommed unless very cheap. Up side street and not easy to find
Closeness to points of interest (Acquarium, Porto Antico in general), very pleasant, helpful staff.
Good situation. They only speak italian !
Very comfortable breakfast was adiquit The bed was only 2.6in like a childs trundle the first day the room was unserviced
no lift and a large number of steps to climb at main entrance
Position in the heart of Genova Very small room, very small bathroom. Breakfast available from 8.30 to 9.00!!! Very bad people coming back in the evening/night. Really too much expensive for the quality they offer.
Nothing For a 3 star hotel, they do not have functioning telephone lines. You can not make a call outside. No internet facilities, no ironing facilities, a very long, narrow stairs at the entrance without lift and the worst is; the area is extremely dangerous in the nights. You can not go out at all.
central & close to station We had to carry our baggage up two flights of stairs to reception. No lift to foyer but lift to rooms. Was inconvenient with 5 women & suit cases
Good value rooms, clean & well located in the city The staff.
Nothing, we did enjoy leaving They refused my crew entry one night because they had not been paid even though we had not checked out yet and then when we did pay there was a discrepancy on the total which they wanted to resolve with a fight, threatening my colleague and swearing. They are a very aggressive staff force and we were terrified.
