1/5 Terrible

Sad face IconDisliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
I cannot reconcile my experience with the ratings given to this hotel. Our stay was so bad that we checked out the morning after arrival. The exterior and the position of the hotel is really nice: Right on the square of the old town, charming, ivy-covered walls, all looks great. Staying there, though, is a different matter... We arrived around 11pm; one hour later than expected (thanks Easyjet!) to a terse, unsmiling welcome bordering on rude. We climbed several flights of stairs with our cases and were shown to a room that was not much wider than a corridor - with two single beds. The room was clean but reminiscent of a youth hostel, not a hotel. Breakfast was a basic affair; pastries, yogurts and coffee/tea.The hotel generally is is quirky and could be quite charming but is looking very tired in parts. When we explained to the proprietor the next day that we would have to check out early, he expressed no surprise, no apology and no offer of a refund. He did explain (in terms that made no sense) that they did try to provide a double bed but because our arrival was delayed they somehow couldn't do that. Sorry that the experience was very unpleasant and that I would avoid at all costs staying at this hotel. Was went to the Royal Sporting hotel instead and were extremely well looked after..

Hotel Genio is in a great location. Igor is very welcoming and always ready to help. Portovenere is a gem and well worth visiting.

5 star service and location.
We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Hotel Genio. The location can't be beat and the view from our balcony was incredible. Yes, it is a very old historic property and the furnishings are dated, but everything was spotlessly clean. The bathroom is very small and there are several flights of steps to get to the rooms. It was not an issue for us. The staff is incredibly hard working and friendly. The bruschetta is delish!

We had a wonderful stay. Igor, the owner, is a great host and helped us with parking and even loading our suitcases. His mom makes the best bruschetta in Portovenere. Great personal service in a perfect location near the ferries for the Cinque terre towns. We enjoyed our breakfast on the patio overlooking the little square and shaded by grapevines. Thank you Igor!

Great location and service, noisy rooms
Wonderful welcome from the owner, very helpful with our luggage up lots of narrow stairs, and very patient with our poor Italian. Very reasonably priced room, breakfast, and bar prices. The room was in a lovely location but the walls were paper-thin and we could everything (EVERYTHING!) that went on in the adjacent rooms. Wifi was patchy up in room, but strong in reception and bar area. Fortunately we were out most of the time as the hotel is perfectly located to explore Portovenere and very close to the Cinque Terre ferry and the bus to La Spezia. Would definitely return.
