    This is a lovely hotel in the grand old fashioned tradition. Beautiful terrazzo floors in the room and a spacious marble bathroom. It is on a busy roundabout so it is best to ask for a quiet room. We paid euros 98 per night including breakfast which was a wonderful buffet style with lots of variety. Parking would have been 18 euros extra per night but we were lucky to get a spot very close to the hotel which was free so we left our car there for the whole time of our stay. We liked the area as it was not so congested as the tiny lanes nearer to the port. We would certainly stay there again.

    We were not happy that the only English tv channel available was Eurosport - no cnn or bbc. We dined next door in the Grand Savoia Hotel which is the sister hotel to the Continental but we found the food to be very insubstantial, expensive and not value for money although the service and surroundings were excellent. We could not recommend it, nor would we dine there again. There were very few customers in the dining room and we can understand why. It is a pity because the dining room is very beautiful. Other than those 2 complaints we had a very enjoyable stay.

    Very pleasant and helpful desk staff. Ability to look after bags during the day after checkout. Wonderful area for breakfast, with a great selection of food and very pleasant table staff who made sure everything was high quality and well presented. Good window shutters to block out light but also city noise.

    Good location near the Piazza Principe station, it takes a 5 min to get to the Villa Principe or Via Balbi with Palazzo Reale. Nice breakfast, especially a possibility to have it outdoor.

    Everything about this hotel was first class! In particular, the hotel staff was incredibly helpful. We checked out at 4:30am on August 8 to get to the airport. The gentleman at the desk called a taxi and helped carry out our bags! When we asked about coffee he called someone in the kitchen and this gentleman brought a fresh cup of coffee out to the reception desk for us to drink quickly as we prepared to exit from the hotel. I have never experienced that level of service - especially when you consider we were walking out the door and already felt good about our stay. I hope these two staff members can be commended for their service in the middle of the night when there was no one around to witness their efforts!!

    The location of the railway station to the hotel was a short stroll, and when you are lugging a 20kg suitcase you do not want to be walking for kilometers. The room was brilliant, every thing you wanted was there, no outside noise. Great eateries , and cafes within a short walk from the hotel. On offer for breakfast was truly amazing everything you would want, and this was included in the tarrif. All the staff were so friendly and helpful.

    The free wifi was not working during our stay, and I really needed it to contact family that we were meeting the next day in another country.

    It was situated very close to the main railway station. The decor ,including the walk down memory lane lift,were aesthetically pleasing.further a member of staff was always at reception ready to help. The food was good and reasonably priced and the service was excellent.

    Shame the bar was a short walk from the hotel,athough, as you would expect,room service was available at an inflated price.

    Superb

    Loved it "nouveau art" design. Found it pretty fitted our "genovese mood" after riding "hop on/off" tourist bus. Perfect location for coming/tourism/shopping/leaving the city. You are welcomed by mineral water at the hotel's lobby. Nice room/bathroom amenities. Kettle with a choice of tea/coffee in room. Nice view on Piazza Acquaverde (Genova Principe Train Station) from front yard room. Breakfast with plenty of choices.

    Was not able to connect to hotel's WiFi. Receptionist advised me to wait for technical service coming next morning.
