"Basic and convenient"
This hotel was very conveniently located for my purposes and only a 10 -15 minute walk to the old city and the waterfront (aquarium, etc.). The rooms are basic but clean, the staff friendly and English-speaking. It occupies the 4th floor of a building and after hours one needs to buzz to enter. The desk is not manned from 1 AM to 7 AM. Wi-Fi in the bar area but not rooms, and this was not functioning during my visit. Even given the basic nature of the accommodations and services the price was a bargain.

The maintenance is not so accurate and the hotel usually close at 1 a.m. (2 a.m. on saturday). However the position is outstanding: a few steps from the Brignole railway station and from the central XX Settembre street.

I've stayed here before and was much more impressed the first time. I was in room 4 this time, it was small, the electric went out a few times, there was one pillow per person on the bed and the bathroom was tiny - the shower so small you hit the temperature guage every time you moved. My last room was huge, with a new shower and a changing room. It was also much cheaper last year when I stayed in my large room then this year when I stayed in my tiny room. The location was still excellent.

Excellent situation of the hotel, at walking distance from the station where we arrived and close to the main sites. Although we only stayed two nights in Genoa we could easily visit the main places such as the old town, palazzi, museums, gardens, sea side, etc... The different persons running the place are all very kind, competent and helpful.

We appreciated the host accommodating us with a very early check-in on arriving at the hotel from the Cinque Terre. The hotel is very centrally located not only for access to the station and airport bus transport but also to places of interest in Genoa and its surrounds, e.g. Portofino. The host provided very helpful information when we sought advice on destinations we wished to visit while in Genoa. We would not hesitate in recommending this hotel to other travellers.

The location of this hotel is amazing. Very close to a beautiful main street for shopping and food. It is a short walk to a metro station which will get you to one of the main train stations. I would recommend Brignole as a departure point in Genova. The staff were very helpful and the building was quaint especially the lift. :)

The hotel Soana is quite easy to find despite Genoa's bizarre numbering. Nice central location and very helpful staff. There is no breakfast but that's no problem as there a couple of cafes around the back. The lift is really sweet (wood panel and manual doors).

If traveling by train, be sure to get off at the Bagnole Station, not the principal station. Novice navigating in Genova is daunting. I drowned my iPhone in Cinque Terre and had to rely on archaic technology, a map!

We found the negative comments regarding this hotel to be a little harsh. This is a two star hotel! Yes, the elevator is small (my wife and I fit in with 2 small backpacks and 2 medium sized checked trolleys), the shower cabin is small (66x66 cm, but this is the case in many hotels in old buildings, and didn't have any problems with the hot water) , the mattresses hard (we slept really well on them). The location is very good; 10 min walk to Piazza De Ferrari (buses, metro, shopping) or Brignole Train Station (for Milan, Cinque Terre - when you exit the hotel, turn right and take the pedestrian only street - many options for breakfast, even a Carrefour Express, etc). The room has a minibar. The noise from the buses is really hard if the windows are open (our windows were facing the main street) but the AC kept us comfortable-end of September). Keep in mind that you cannot enter the hotel between 1 and 7 AM. The TV has CNN International and BBC News as English channels (some better rated hotels provided just Italian channels), and the internet was free (we didn't have this very often in Italy) and worked from our room. We didn't have breakfast, so we cannot comment on it. The people at the front desk really helpful. It was a good experience, and the hotel is good value for the money.

"Better than a 2* but curfew is a setback"
I thought this hotel deserves more than a 2* rating. It was clean, comfortable and has the facilities you'd expect from a 3* hotel (en suite bathroom, air conditioning, WIFI, TV, minibar). It is also in quite a good location, less than a 10 minute walk away from the historic city centre. The staff were also friendly and helpful. The only problem I had with this hotel (and it is quite a big one) is that there is a curfew of 1am (2am on Saturdays), which wasn't well publicised when making the booking. I suppose this is because it only occupies one floor in a shared building but it's still not ideal. Overall it's a decent hotel and offers good value for money, but the curfew is something to be wary of!

Soana hotel was a little odd at first sight being on the forth floor of a building with an old fashioned lift that worked very well and smoothly despite it's appearance. The room was large, spacious and very clean. The staff were extremely kind and helpful. It was positioned in the centre of Genoa next to shops and the train station (not the central station but can't remember name). Good value for money. Would highly recommend.

"A bargain, November stay at The Soana."
We were given a balcony room at The Soana, number 13. Although the balcony had a locked gate on it it was still a lovely little room. Although it was small you had enough room to get around. The only issue we had was that the radiator was on and couldn't be switched off. It was November after all and to Italians it was cold. We however were baking hot. A minor quibble given that the room was spotlessly clean, the beds were very comfortable and the staff were very pleasant, polite and accommodating. People forget that this is a budget hotel in the middle of a busy city centre. Noise was expected but not too bad. The continental breakfast seemed a little sparse but it still did the job, just! I would use the hotel again. Thanks to the owners, the lovely Sonia and the rest of the staff of the hotel for making us so welcome and comfortable.

"Easy stay"
Easy location from the train station & right in the CBD. We were only on a quick overnight stop over so it was convenient. Beds were hard, although not phased by this it may not interest some people. Staff were very friendly & it was quiet. Although in the morning about 8 there was a fair bit of thoroughfare noise as we were close to reception & they serve breakfast around 7-830. Most restaurants are a little walk away as this hotel is in the business area however the price of the hotel was great & it served its purpose.

"NOT FIT FOR SLEEPING"
IMO this 4th storey hotel is just in the wrong place for being able to get a nights sleep, (even with ear plugs) as it's adjacent to both a main throughfare's set of traffic lights and an elevated highway, so the trafic noise is intrusive and continuous. Room 15 is a definite no no, as it on the corner of the hotel with a set of french windows on each elevation. The management are aware of the problem but offer no reduction, but do provide a generous continental breakfast for 3 euros, which includes a large pot of well needed morning coffee.

A good budget option for travelers. Walking distance from the train station. It's on a main shopping road which is ok during the day but it essentially shuts down at 8.30pm and i didn't feel safe walking around by myself after that. There was also a lack of restaurants open for dinner close by. Very clean and tidy and lovely staff though!

"Super Lage zu einem sehr günstigen Preis"
Wir waren vom 4.9. bis 7.9 im Soana. Das Hotel liegt mit in der Stadt und man kann von hieraus alles zu Fuß erreichen. Das Hotel verfügt über alle notwendigen Annehmlichkeit die man braucht. Das Zimmer ist sehr sauber und das Personal ist ausgesprochen freundlich. Nachts ist es allerdings etwas laut...aber das ist in italienischen Großstädten so. Frühstücken waren wir immer in Bars die über alle zu finden sind. Cappuccino 1,3€ und ein Croissant 1€ das war überraschend günstig. Diese Bar befindet sich beim Hotel um die Ecke. Unseren PKW konnten wir gegenüber der Straße in einer Tiefgarage vergünstigt abstellen (12€pro Tag). Wir werden auf jeden Fall wieder in dieses Hotel gehen ,da wir noch lange nicht alles von Genua gesehen haben.
