"A good value hotel well positioned for everything"
This is the 3rd time that I've stayed at the Star Hotel President whilst visiting Genoa and Liguria in general.
This is very friendly hotel offering excellent value for money positioned well to explore the best shopping in Genoa on Via Settembre, the best eateries beyond La Piazza de Ferrari such as La Giada and next door to Stazione Brignole train station if you want to explore beautiful Liguria and beyond.
This hotel has a traditional elegance combined with modern comfort. Rooms are well appointed and kept spotless. The staff are excellent in every way and staying at this hotel really enhanced our enjoyment of Genova. We would highly recommend it for it's comfort, style, friendliness and central location.
The man who checked us in was very polite, he even remembered that my mum rang the hotel to ask about the twin beds 4 months prior! he offered to take our luggage which was nice. We were given a map and the man politely explained everything and wrote things down on the map to indicate bus routs for us.
As soon as you walk in you get the ahh this is so clean feeling! is was so fresh that the bathroom floor was slightly wet as it had just been mopped.There was a day that we had been out all day, and when we came back the room had been cleaned, curtains had been drawn and the shutters had been closed to keep the room cool for when we got back. I thought that was nice, the lady could have just cleaned up and left the windows for us to come back to a hot room, so it was a nice touch.
The TV had a lot more channels (over 300 I think) then other 3 star hotels I'd been to which was nice. a couple of programs are even shown in English.
They make good coffee in the morning for breakfast.
There are 2 supermarkets 30 sec - 1 min away and you get a fridge in your room! this is handy as you can get bits and bobs.
The sea front is about a 4 min walk,transport links to the port, the center and the station is 9-20 min away by bus,depending on were you want to go. bus is only 1 euro and 50 cents single.
cab only cost 20 euros to the airport (10 each)
I would definitely recommend this hotel and If I go to Genova again I will definitely stay at this hotel
It was our first time in Genoa and choosing Albergo Carola was the best option. The owner was there assisting on anything we needed. Location is amazing. Very close to the train station. Close to everything. Room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious!! We loved it and really recommend!! Too bad it was only one night. We will certainly go back in our next visit to Genoa.
