"Perfect location, lovely hosts!!"
I had the loveliest stay!! The owners were incredibly helpful from the moment I checked in. They gave me a map, showed me places to sightsee and have the best local dinner. The rooms were clean and in the perfect location. Thank y'all for a wonderful visit!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location and good host"
We cannot find the hotel at first, then we just park in an area nearby. After finding the hotel, we try to park in the department store COIN, sadly, with our poor technique, it is not possible as our rented car is too big. The owner is very nice and he helps us to park!!! good stay and good hotel!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Guy was great, couldn't be more accommodating. Right downtown, easy access to everything. He made up for his limited English, (which was way better than our Italian), by both of us typing into google translate. Worked great. Would definitely recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and friendly staff"
This charming hotel is within walking distance of the main attractions of Genoa. It's only a few rooms on the fourth floor in an old building. The facilities are not very modern, but the beds are comfortable and the staff is friendly and helpful. While their English is limited, they do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable. Some nice extras […] are free wi-fi in the room and a continental breakfast at a nearby cafe. We'll definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and price"
Incomparable location in a stylish old building within easy walking distance of major sights and close to airport shuttle bus. Limited amenities but more than compensated for by the very affordable price and friendly, helpful staff. Wifi connection available. Rooms on the small side but have a simple charm and are very clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a great location and the owner was absolutely amazing. He even made the reservation for dinner for us. He is really great to tell you where to go and what to see and was just super fun. The hotel is in a great location. Next to the old district and Christopher Columbus's house and a food market. If you have a car talk to the owner because he […] can get you a day parking in the Coin parking lot across the street for only 12 euro. I would definitely come back.

"Great location next to shops &fresh food market"
We really enjoyed our stay - it was just what we needed. The Hotel Manager was very friendly and helpful. We went for a walk down the end of the street to a hill with a great view. Genova Brignole train station is close byGenuine Expedia guest review
"This is not a 'hotel'"
Despite what the description says this is a pensione on the 4th floor of an old building. Everything seemed to leak - the bedsheets where definitely not the cleanest. Despite paying for breakfast, there was non to speak of. For the price its good. But a) its not a hotel - its a pensione and b) its tired. If you are looking to save money, its very central […] - otherwise I would not recommend it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient for sightseeing in Genova."
Great staff, great location. Could have used a little breakfast, since I had to rush out of the door early. Was told I could get it in a bar, which was very inconvinient for me. But overall I'm a very satisfied customer.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very pleasant stay"
This is a great little hotel, located on the main street in Genoa, close to the old town and an easy walk from almost anywhere you'd want to go. The staff were helpful and friendly. My room wasn't very big, but served perfectly well as I was by myself and out all day (apart from siestas). Not a place where you'd spend a lot of time, and the lack of […] shower gel was a minor inconvenience, but it was clean, bright, and reasonably priced. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location with welcoming personnel!"
I had a pleasant and comfortable stay. The personnel was welcoming and could check in quite late in the evening. Only complaint was the missing toilet paper which was just a simple miss by them. The location couldn't be better, right on the largest shopping street in Genova.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Accueil très sympa"
Très bon accueil, très convivial. Bon service et chambre très sympa. Merci :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
un peu difficile à trouver car au 4ème étage d'un immeuble de bureaux, mais bien situé en centre ville et tout près de la gare de BrignoleGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Piccolo albergo semplice, ma pulito. La camera non è molto spaziosa, gli spazi comuni non particolarmente accoglienti, ma per un breve soggiorno va più che bene. Il personale è gentile e disponibile. La posizione è ottima per scoprire il centro storico di Genova (vicina la cattedrale di S. Lorenzo, a due passi Porta Soprana) e arrivare al porto in circa […] 10-15 minuti a piedi. Abbiamo solo avuto un po' di problemi a trovarlo, dato il sistema genovese dei doppi numeri civici (per i negozi e per i palazzi) e l'assenza di un'insegna ben visibile; l'albergo si trova a pochi metri a valle dall'arco.

"Empfang nett, Zimmer preiswert u. gut."
Reservation klappte gut, das Zimmer war saurer und gut, Preis und Leistung stimmte für uns. Zentral gelegenes Hotel in Gehdistanz zum Bahnhof Genova Brignole und zur sehenswerten Altstadt..Genuine Expedia guest review
Ottima sistemazione per chi vuole fare una visita di Genova. Albergo confortevole e personale cordiale disposto a dare consigli su come muoversi in cittàGenuine Expedia guest review
Proprietario simpaticissimo e disponibile, hotel a 5 minuti a piedi dal centro e a 5 minuti dalla stazione dei treni.Ottimo per essere una sola stella. Camera pulitissima, servizi perfettamente funzionanti, wifi in camera incluso, non come tanti albergi in cui il segnale non arriva mai. Tutto molto confortevole e tranquillo.

"Väl över förväntan."
Vi var mycket nöjda med hotellet och bemötandet av dess personal. Det underlättar mycket ifall du kan tala italienska. Prisvärt hotell i ett utmärkt läge i staden. Inget att anmärka på.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Bon séjour de 4 nuits avec quelques bémols. Points faibles : L'hôtel rénove en ce moment sa cuisine : le petit-déjeuner se prend au bar du coin. La chambre individuelle était assez petite : la salle de bains minuscule avec comme absurdité le bidet face au tout petit lavabo à 20 cms. Points forts : chambre rénovée et propre. Accueil merveilleux par 2 […] messieurs charmants et serviables. L'emplacement est formidable, dans une avenue commerçante très vivante. Le métro est à 3mn à pieds. Un endroit à connaître pour un hôtel 1 étoile à prix raisonnable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
第二天要搭船，临时在这里住一晚，性价比很高。车站出来也算好找。还不错Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Если цель поездки - погулять по городу и просто переночевать, то вполне сносно. Отель занимает один из этажей (4) в доме, часть номеров выходит на большой проспект. Если шум не смущает - welcome. Еще одно небольшое неудобство - завтрак за пределами отеля, в кафе. Супермаркет есть рядом (спросить в отеле).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"klein aber fein"
sehr freundlicher Empfang, gleich alles erklärt auch in der Stadt! sehr bemüht und hilfsbereit. Die Zimmer sind voll okay für den Preis, Lage ist auch top! Richtig angenehmer Aufenthalt für ein Nacht. Große Koffer sollte man bei dem kleinen Lift allerdings nicht mitschleppen :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfekt til storbyferie"
Meget rent og pænt, super opmærksom vært. Meget varmt, da der ingen aircondition er. Meget larm, da det ligger på hovedgaden og det er nødvendigt med åbne vinduer. Ville til enhver tid vende tilbageGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The first impression wasn't great because we couldn't find it. But a local told us to go up 4 flights. We didn't dare use the elevator because it was tiny and old. We let the luggage use the lift. When we entered the hotel we were surprised, because we had never stayed in a hotel that wasn't on the ground floor. Once we checked in we were pleased, especially with our host. The location could not be better. It's in the center of everything. The rooms were immaculate with newly refurbished bathrooms. We were given a room with a lovely view and a fan to combat the warm muggy weather. Our only criticism was the smell of cigarette smoke in the common area. But our rooms were odor-free. We will return to the hotel in 3 weeks because it is a good accommodation for the money.
"Friendly, helpful, budget and clean"
09/01/14 talktoraquel Newbury, United Kingdom
I booked here solely based on the reviews and was not disappointed. I used the tips and requested a room at the back away from the noise with its own bathroom, which was confirmed and we more or less got. Location was good, we walked everywhere. The owners were extremely helpful and happy. Only drawback for me was the cigarette smoke in the building, however not uncommon in south Europe and I couldn't smell it in our room. Would stay again without hesitation.
"Quaint budget-priced hotel with incomparable location"
08/13/14 Penelope W Tripoli, Libya
Incomparable location within easy walking distance of Genoa's historic centre and old port and close to the Volobus airport shuttle bus. The Olympia is located on the fourth floor of a charming old building with elegant lobby area and quaint old-fashioned lift. Wifi access is available but otherwise few amenities although this is more than compensated for by the friendly, helpful staff and excellent price-quality ratio. Rooms are on the small side, simply decorated but very clean. Would thoroughly recomment for budget travellers.
"Great location and the best service for a family on a budget."
07/10/14 Vuillaume80 Eugene
Although Genova was not our favorite city for children, this hotel is well situated in the center. We loved the attentiveness of the staff at Hotel Olympia. The room was spacious and the price was right. It is a bit noisy at night, but we all slept very well. This is similar to a motel experience in the USA, but with better service, nicer beds, bigger towels and a cute dog, Tommy, that my kids loved. We didn't have breakfast there, so I cannot speak if it. The shower is small but it worked just fine. They provided a hair dryer up request. The wi-fi is really fast. City and food recommendations were excellent. Great budget hotel.
"Cheap, clean, friendly & centrally located hostel"
06/30/14 stensveen Oslo, Norway
I stayed two nights at the Olympia, where I felt very welcome from the start, and slept like a baby; a perfect starting point for heavy duty sightseeing in Genova. Please understand though, that it’s a cheap and basic option, not a classy hotel. However, the services offered clearly outrank most other cheap hotels I’ve stayed at. My room was ready when I arrived, both bathroom and room was clean and welcoming, wifi worked non-stop with high capacity, keys and explanations given for late night returns. Two pointers on how to find the place though: 1. Many streets in Genova have both red and black house numbers. The Olympia is located at Via XX Settembre #21 of the BLACK number series. The entrance is across the road from a shop called Coin. 2. The hotel is on the 8th floor of the building, but since the elevator only stops on every second floor, press 4 and you’ll arrive directly at the entrance. If you want a cheap, clean, friendly, central and well kept place to stay – I’d recommend the Olympia for you!
"A Friendly Hospitable Stay"
06/26/14 John H Perth, Australia
This hotel is very near to Brignole Station which meant that we did not need a taxi. There is a good bus service from the airport on Volabus to the station. The hotel is on 4th floor of a charming grand building and the rooms are spacious with high ceilings. The beds are comfortable and clean.The lift is quaint and tiny but is reliable. Breakfast was at a nearby café/bar with fresh croissants/focaccia and tea/coffee. The host does not speak much English and we do not speak much Italian but we managed to communicate well and when things got too hard he used his computer with Google translation. His lovely dog, Tommy has no problem with communication! They both made us very welcome. We enjoyed a pleasant few days here. Thank you.

It is a really nice small hotel, which is located exactly in the city centre and very accessible to Piazza De Ferrari and Brignole Train Station . Although it's a bit difficult to find, the hotel makes up for it with its simplicity and warm hospitality. The owner of the hotel was really nice and accommodating to our stay. He was very helpful when we asked him for directions and he even said when was the best time to head down to Cinque Terre (highly recommended place to visit to be honest) and he always have bottles of water in hand when we come back from our outings. Despite being a budget hotel, it provides very fast and free internet everywhere in the hotel. Rooms were very clean with a turn down service; very impressive for this kind of hotel. Not to mention his beloved dog Tommy. A very adorable and good pet which i would consider as the mascot of the hotel. I recommend anyone who stays at the place to take a picture with Tommy at least once. All in all, we would definitely come back and stay in this hotel if we make a trip back to Genova.
"A pleasant stay"
06/07/14 Flounderparrot Hong Kong, China
Though the owner speak little English, he is nice and friendly ( and not to mention his lovely dog）. When we park our car in COIN, as our rented car is too big, we cannot handle to park it right. We call the owner and he come to help us park, we are really grateful. Very clean hotel and in nice location, a small supermarket nearby to get what one need. If you are driving, remember to ask the hotel the entrance of the car park in advance! It is not on the same street.
"Delightful Family Run Hotel"
05/14/14 Mark_Bellinger Tarnowskie Gory
I stayed here for a couple of days as a base to do a little business. The location of this hotel is excellent and puts you right in the heart of the city. Due to a car problem I arrived in the dead of night at 3:30am, there was no problem and someone was still waiting up, I was helped to some nearby parking and given a warm friendly welcome. The only down side to this hotel is a very small bathroom, I'm a big guy ;-) but for me this doesn't detract from awarding 5 stars as everything else given the hotels size is great for the price. So, what else do you need? Here you get a comfy bed, clean room, great location, restaurants a few steps away, secure off street parking and fast WIFI !!
"Possibly my favorite hotel in Italy"
04/23/14 NateDenny San Diego, California
In my five weeks in Italy, this was perhaps the best hotel I stayed at. It had it all -- stylish and comfortable accommodations, an extremely friendly staff and an unbeatable location. (Fast and free wifi, as well.) As far as budget hotels go, it doesn't get any better than this -- highly recommended.
