We had a good experience at the hotel with one exception. The bar was closed after 5 p.m. so in order to have a cocktail in the evening, you were forced to pay room service charges for a glass of wine.
This hotel is in walking distance of all the main sights. It is relatively small with rooms spread over 8 floors. There are 2 small lifts which both hold a max of 4 people. NB: It wouldn’t take their luggage as well
We had a Standard double room on the 7th floor which overlooked the city. It was clean with a mini bar and a safe. The shower had sliding doors to get through which could be a little tricky for the larger traveller and was a relatively large step above floor level. There were at least 3 power points free.
We paid extra for breakfast and at 4 euros a head it was a real bargain. You were made a fresh coffee of your choice as well as having the usual selection of cereals, cold meats, cheese, pastries and bread and jam. There was a also a small selection of hot food (pancakes, eggs:scrambled or boiled, sausage and ham) .
There is no bar in the hotel but in the room used for breakfast you can help yourself to tea and coffee throughout the day as well as their normally being some bread and something else savoury to nibble on. There are lots of restaurants with a few hundred metres including one in the hotel and one just outside.

Stayed at the hotel for 8 nights in November this year. The hotel met our expectations, the room was a bit cramped though. The staff was friendly enough to help with advice and directions. Good breakfast, but the menu not very varied, acceptable for a week's stay. A good choice for business travelers and short visits and that is exactly what Genova is for.

"Nice hotel, near downtown BUT some dangerous area"
The hotel is nice, interior rooms, staff, breakfast, but you must know that the area is not so charming, it is on a small street near local shops that you wont feal safe past 9 pm, but is really good located, it was ok for us but maybe if i returno to Geneva will look for another hotel maybe NH at Marina.
Notice, parking is not in the hotel is 2 block away

We booked this hotel because of the description given, which stated that it is close to Brignoli train station and within walking distance to the main attractions of Genova. Although this is true, be prepared to do some serious walking, even if you're planning on accessing the public bus system. I need to also mention that the walk from Brignoli train station to the hotel is all uphill. My son and I are fairly fit and the walk to the hotel with our luggage was not fun. They have free parking for about five or six cars. So if you're on a budget and are travelling by car, this hotel could be good for you. You will have to take a taxi if you're arriving from the larger, Central train station. Our cab ride to the Genova airport was about 20 EUR. The best part about this hotel is the friendly staff and the bar. These guys know how to make your favourite type of coffee with the cafe' style machine. Breakfast is fresh daily with hard boiled eggs, the Genovese focaccia, pastries, toast, cereals, fruit etc. The wireless can be frustrating. It was very intermittent in the room and you need to ask for a new password often, but this is typical in most small scale hotels in Italy. If you've never been to Genova, try not to wonder in the narrow alleys in the city at night. It can be somewhat uncomfortable. having said that, Genova is a fabulous city within close proximity to some of the best beaches on the Liguria Coast, great history, art and architecture.
When I visited Genoa it was in the middle of a particularly rainy period and many tourists were staying away. I found the hotel to be located very conveniently for the city centre and its main attractions. I was actually the only person staying the in hotel it was that quiet in the city.
The hotel staff, in particular Brian, were very helpful. The room was very comfortable and quiet and I slept well. There is limited on site parking and parking in the neighbourhood is restricted to residents only.
I have stayed in the city three times and I would definitely consider Hotel Actor for my next trip.
Great location - easy walking distance from Principe railway station in one direction, and from the old town in the other. Helpful, English-speaking staff. Bedding and towels changed every day. Generous cold buffet breakfast. Very reasonably priced. Highly recommended.
