My visit to Genova included exploring the historic Porto Antico area and a music event at the Fiera exhibition centre. It's a 30 minute walk from the NH Plaza to the Fiera di Genova but it's good to take your time walking down to the harbour area, visiting the UNESCO World Heritage sites. As the largest port in Italy it's not surprising that Genova has become a centre of excellence for progressive rock music, which is defined by the incorporation of different styles including classical music, folk music and eastern and middle eastern influences.

My sister and I stayed 2 nights at the Hotel Helvetia in Genoa in the beginning of September 2013. The room was quite large and very clean. The wireless internet connection worked fairly well.
The friendly staff directed us to a parking spot for our car that was very close and easy to get to. We were able to pull right up front of the hotel to drop our luggage off first. The staff also provided a map of the area with suggestions on where to eat and sites to see. They were very attentive and helpful.
The hotel location is fantastic. Our room looked out over busy Piazza Della Nunziata but when you closed the window, it was still quite quiet. There are so many shops and restaurants nearby. A seven-stop commuter funicular begins at the Piazza and it is worth the trip up to see the view of Genoa.
The hotel is situated amongst some very impressive landmarks and the architecture is gorgeous. We had decided to stay in Genoa so we could visit Cinque Terre but then we were sorry that we did not dedicate more time to exploring this really interesting and beautiful city. The Hotel Helvetia is a very good location to explore the city from. It is also very close to the train station.
We really enjoyed the hotel and would highly recommend it. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again.

The hotel was very conveniently located. All sight-seeing spots and shopping were within walking distance.
We had three rooms. Mine was for two persons. It was big with high ceiling, very nicely furnished and decorated. My two daughters each paid $100 more to have four-person rooms. They were just huge and classy! Both were beautiful. One even had a Jacuzzi bath tub.
The staff was super friendly and helpful. We arrived early and our rooms were not ready. They stored the luggage for us so that we could go sight-seeing. By the time we returned, our bags were already in our rooms. Since we had to leave before the hotel restaurant opens in the morning, the front desk packed for each of us a breakfast to go.
This hotel is better than many other high-priced hotels I have stayed in!
my review takes into account that I'm a single guy
not travelling with a princess and that this was the cheapest place on line. Well located and easy to get to
5 min wAlk from the train station. would definitely return
