"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.
We found this hotel to be very impressive inside with marble floors and staircases. Lovely wooden panelling throughout hotel and a main lift which reminds you of 1950's films with cage doors and stairwell surrounding it. The room had quiet air-con which was nearly always needed. Good bathroom and lovely shower with powerful main head and side jets. Comfy bed but no facility to make hot drinks yourself.
The room was an economy double and was a little cramped for storage.
The City Tax of 2 Euros per person per night came as a surprise and was not known to us until we arrived.
Breakfast is continental but hot scrambled/boiled eggs were available each day along with bacon (European style, not what you get in the UK). Coffee can be made for you on request if you don't want the standard filter coffee on offer in a thermos jug.
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the Olympia. The room, common area, and bathroom were very clean, and the owner was quite friendly. He gave us each a bottle of water upon our arrival, which was a nice gesture. Our only complaint would be that we had trouble finding the hotel, as there are multiple street addresses on the buildings in the area, making navigation a challenge. I guess this is more an issue with the city than the hotel, though!
Located in downtown, this hotel is a great choice. Clean, neat, spacious and well-priced, we really enjoyed our two nights here. Only problem areas: it's a bit difficult to find and parking is not easy. The hotel is one of several in a 4,5 story bldg and the elevator is small, but efficient. Get to the hotel first, and the extremely kind and helpful receptionist will explain where to park the car. We loved it!
