"convenient to sights and means of transportation"
My sister and enjoyed our stay at the Soana Hotel. The service was great, and the staff was both friendly and helpful. The only drawback was that the beds were hard.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Served our needs"
It wasn't posh or fancy, but served our needs well. Quick walk to the train station or to some fantastic dining. It was quiet, clean and safe; I'd stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location could not be better. We had a beautiful view of the bridge from our room. Staff were very friendly and helpfulGenuine Hotels.com guest review
best budget hotel in central genoa. The staff was very helpful. However hotel is not very well acoomodated with tea/ coffee for that you have to go out. Pls note this hotel is based on 4th floor of a building (small hotel). Sonia the receptionist was very welcoming.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Ideal for Exploring Genoa"
A comfortable base for exploring Genoa old town and port, not too far to walk from Brignole station. Nice quite room and the buiding has a lovely old wood panelled lift in the stairwell.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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.

Pleasant stay, no pretentions, nothing fancy but adequate accommodation in a good location in the centre of genoa. Various members of staff were friendly and helpful. Only annoying thing for us was the wifi didn't work in our room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Welcoming + Clean"
Great place to stay, very clean rooms, friendly staff. Room had great view along Via Settembre (sp) and high cielings with frescoes on them. Good location halfway between Brignole station to the east and old town to the west. Also very near the excellent Mercato Orientale and lots of good food shops / bakeries / cafes around Via Galata / ColomboGenuine Hotels.com guest review
staff was very friendly - being that our train was delayed and we didnt get there til after 11pm at night. We left by 9 the next morning, so very brief stay. Room was clean, everything worked. Location was handy to Genova Brignole Station - the link to Cinque TerreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Excelente localização em pr~edio histõrico"
O ponto alto do hotel é sua localização. Situado da parte central e histórica de Gënova, o Hotel Soana é uma ótima opção de estadia próximo a vários pontos turísticos da cidade, assim como a muitas lojas e restaurantes. O prédio é antigo, mas tem uma fachada muito bonita e está localizado de frente para a Porta Monumentale, um bonito arco sobre a Via […] XX Settembre. O hotel está localizado no quarto andar. O apartamento não é muito grande, mas o suficiente para acomodar os hóspedes com tranquilidade. A limpeza é muito boa. A internet é grátis mas só disponível no salão do café. O hotel não oferece café da manhã. Por tudo que apresenta o preço da diária é muito convidativo. Os atendentes foram muito simpáticos e atenciosos. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
観光したり、鉄道駅も徒歩圏内です。ネオンサインがあるので見つけやすいです。夜はビルのドアが閉まっています。インターフォンを押して建物のドアロックを開け、レトロなエレベーターに乗り4階まで上がります。 ジェノバの街は夜8時になると飲食店以外閉まってしまいます。日用品などは入手不可能ですが、ホテルのそばの自販機で飲み物は買うことができました。ホテルのレセプションが12時までと言っていましたが、街には出歩く場所もないので夜中に到着するのでなければ問題ないかと思います。Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"schönes Hotel in guter Lage"
Ein schöne gelegenes Hotel in wunderschönem Altbau. Direkt an der Via XX Settembre daher leider etwas laut. Für Nachtschwärmer leider nur bis 1 Uhr offen. Das fehlende Frühstück ist kein Problem da direkt vor der Haustür mehrere Cafes. Die Tiefgarage direkt über der Straße kostet pro Tag 12 Euro und ist am besten erst anzufahren denn parken ist ein […] Problem. Ein Navi zum finden hat enorme Vorteile. Die Zimmer haben Flair, Klimaanlage, Kühlschrank und einen Ausblick auf das Treiben in Genua. Die Angestellten sind sehr freundlich und sprechen Englisch und deutsch.

Non posso che consigliarlo, al quarto piano di un vecchio palazzo, in pieno centro. LA nostra stanza era una tripla, molto grande, bagno pulito e nuovo, lenzuiola pulite.

"Nice hotel near the historic center"
We were very satisfied by our stay in this hotel. Room was quite spacious and clean. The owners were nice and give us good advice for visiting the city and had a map at our disposal.

"Hotel Soana Genua"
De vindbaarheid van dit hotel (op twee hoger gelegen verdiepingen van een verzamelgebouw) is in schril contrast met de aangename uitrusting van de kamers; op de buitendeur in de straat is nauwelijks te vinden waar je moet zijn, zelfs buurtbewoners kenden het hotel nauwelijks. De kamers zijn rustig gelegen en netjes ingericht. Wij moesten tevroeg weg […] voor het ontbijt, dus daarover geen oordeel. Een verrassing voor een twee sterren hotel.

Great stay at Soana! We only stayed here for one night with no breakfast. Breakfast was available for 3euro. The staff was very welcoming and nice, and the rooms were great! Ceiling paintings and wonderful view of a bridge outside. A bit traffic-noise, but nothing that kept us awake!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Billig og fint hotell, nær togstasjonen i Genova"
Hotellet ligger ca. 10 minutt på fot frå hotellet og då er då omlag midt i sentrum av den flotte byen. Enkle rom og muligheiter for å få ein enkel frokost, så det er ikkje for dei som ynskjer mykje av alt. Trivelege ansatte som hjalp til med det vi trengte.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Affordable Hotel in a Central Location"
07/06/14 PaulTowers Sydney, Australia
Hotel Soana is a well located budget hotel in Genoa. I stayed there with my wife and six month old son in May and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It can be slightly difficult to locate initially as it is in a building that is shared by a number of other businesses. The hotel itself occupies two levels of the building I believe. The main positives of the hotel included its central location to shops and cafes (street behind the hotel) and Old Port (only about 10 minutes walk away), as well as its very affordable price relative to other hotels in the surrounding area. The only other thing to note is that some people may think it is noisy initially (as it is located on a major road), however as soon as the windows where closed it was quiet inside and we slept well during the night.
06/15/14 Reiko S Ulm, Germany
Perfect location for a stay in Genoa. Close to all destinationes in the city. Friendly staff, clean ana a simple breakfast. A Garage is very close to the hotel in shopping center, ask for special deals when check in!
"Can't believe it's a 2 star!"
This 2 star hotel has it all! Great location, fridge in room, safe, great aircon, clean bathroom, quiet room (ask for a quiet room) & helpful staff. The only thing we experienced problems with was the wifi but it soon got sorted. We've stayed in hotels which were 3 - 4 stars all over Europe for the past 2 months but some of them were not as good as this hotel. It's a lovely building with good lift and friendly people that live on the other floors.
"Great Location and Great Price"
06/08/14 Dagnini21 Westchester, NY
We just spent three nights at Albergo Soana and liked it very much. The location is very good, an easy walk from train station Brignole and an easy walk to the old city and Via Garibaldi. The Soana is in a nice building and easy to find. The bedroom lighting is good, there are plenty of towels, and the wide window sill in the bathroom provides plenty of "shelf" space. The room was quiet and the air conditioning was efficient and quiet, too. The staff was helpful and pleasant. There are few outlets but we brought a triple outlet with an adapter. We will choose Albergo Soana the next time we are in Genoa.

"5* service with character"
12/27/13 maccroom glos uk
This auberge is situated near the bottom of the main shopping street of Genoa Thebed was comfortable,the shower hot and the windows opened.It was also very quiet at night. No breakfast is served although good Italian coffee is always available and they do not mind you bringing in pastries from nearby shops.Genoa is a pleasant town with palaces and a wonderful aquarium.The local food is outstanding.Go down the street.turn left at the bottom of the market (well worth a visit ) and on the right is Il Genovase. We had two meals here the first very good and the second memorable.We also ate at a restaurant in the little piazza beyond Il Genovase which was very good and at the Golden Fish opposite the aquarium. Ridiculously cheap. Would we return?-yes there may be more expensive places but they will not give you the true flavour of Genoa nor will you get such willing service it beats any 5* hotel we have stayed in

If you want to explore the city this is the hotel for you. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. The staff is very friendly. The hotel is located in the main street, on the 4th floor very beautiful old building. The price is reasonable.Near the hotel is a large parking. I recommend this hotel to everyone.
"Adequate but very noisy."
09/14/13 Gary C Genova
For an overnight stay, this hotel was adequate for our needs. Location was excellent as it was very near the train station, and was surrounded by a large choice of shops and restaurants. Biggest problem was the noise, as it overlooked a busy street. having no air conditioning, you had to have the window open at night. The lack of a fridge to keep a cold drink in for overnight was also a disappointment.
"We enjoyed the old-time character of the hotel"
07/26/13 RenegadeMouse Toronto, Canada
This hotel is on the fourth floor of a grand old building. The hotel is well signed and located on a major street but is up high enough not to be troubled by traffic noises. The elevator is the old cage type and can only take 2 people with luggage at one time, but it is fast, and I rather like the “character.” Excellent hotel staff. Breakfast costs 3 euro and includes exactly: coffee, croissant, OJ and yogurt. The room had a mini-fridge, TV, fan, air conditioner (quiet). The bathroom had shower, bidet, toilet, sink. There was a small sitting room with a fold-out couch away from the bedroom but we seldom used it because the WiFi connection was terrible there. Windows opened and had real shutters. It was an easy walk to the metro station, and also to the very old part of town. We enjoyed the old-time character of the hotel and its closeness to interesting areas. On some days the (free) WiFi connection was so-so.

We have been staying here for years as a good friend lives just around the corner on Via San Vincenzo. The rooms are clean and the location is great - no complaints at all. Internet available only in public area. I wonder what people did before internet and wi-fi - it would seem from many reviews all over Trip Advisor that it is the single most important aspect of peoples lives. Love Genoa and will keep returning.
