Hotel Vittoria & Orlandini

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Vittoria is an old building with charm, very conveniently located next to the Genoa Principe train station (important for us since we were traveling by train with luggage). Our room was large and comfortable, though old, it functioned well, but what made our stay so nice was the wonderful staff, so friendly and helpful. It made our stay special. Breakfast was good, filling, again with a delightful staff. If you like quaint hotels convenient to the train station this is the place for you.

We stayed here for one night following a cruise with MSC. A quick expensive taxi ride from the port bought us to the Vittoria Hotel. It's quite high up and you can either brave the stairs or use the oldest lift I have ever seen... The lift is like something out of the twilight zone as it squeaks it's way up to the reception area. Meeted by a gentleman who's english was great. Checked in and went into another lift like the one before. Room was clean but sparse... A bed, A wardrobe and a table! Think hostel and you'll be on the right track. Breakfast was run by a lady who pointed you to your table for a continental breakfast. Location is great here.

The building is old and could do with some tlc,however the location ,a very short walk from Station,even with suitcases,there're lifts to all floors, we stayed 2 days before and after our cruise. There are very good restaurants in 2 minutes walk,and places to see and visit within 10-20 minutes. Breakfast was in a nice room,the staff at the hotel were great so helpful and kind nothing too much trouble.would come again.

This is a no-frills hotel offering reasonably sized, clean and somewhat Spartan rooms. The staff is friendly and helpful. Its major plus is its location: next door to the train station and a stone's throw from the old city (Genoa major attraction). On the downside are the weak WiFi signal strength and only one wall outlet for charging electronic devices (we have five so you can imagine the congestion).

Stayed just one night. Welcomed by very friendly man who carried our cases to our room. Hotel is very dated, room was clean though and no traffic noise could be heard as it is set back from the road next to funicular. However we could hear voices from our neighbours at night. Breakfast was ok and was open early for our 7.30 departure. Close to Principe train station and metro as well as airport shuttle stop.

Best thing about this hotel : staff & location. The owner is so helpful and kind!! He helped us carry our suitcases to the elevator (that should be the case in every hotel) and gave us many advises (in a very good french) about tourist stuff. Location is perfect, 2 min walk to the main trainstation. Just not satisfied about the sound insulation : unfortunately, we could hear our neighbors very well, espcially at night.

We were staying as a family for 24 hours in Genoa then going on by train to Alassio. The hotel is ideally located near the train station (5 minute walk) and still an easy walking in distance to the city centre. Being built into the side of a cliff, the hotel entrance from street level is via a lift, accessed by a short tunnel, which is a new one on me! The check in was very easy with very polite and helpful staff helping us navigate the quirky lifts. The family room (1 double and 1 bunk bed) was clean and spacious with comfortable beds, and good a/c which is a must in the summer! Breakfast was cold meats, cheeses, toast and cereals with coffee and juice. Plus a nice assortment of sweet pastries, absolutely fine for a light breakfast. I would happily use this hotel again.

We stayed in this hotel at the end of our cruise and whilst it was selected for us by the tour operator, we could not have asked for a nicer place to spend our last day in Italy. The hotel staff were welcoming and very helpful and the facilities were great. Our room was a good size, clean and comfortable with good internet access. A short walk took us either to the centre of the city, or directly to the port/sea front. We would happily recommend this pleasant hotel to others.

A hotel should have a coffee machine that is cleaned out daily. In this case I got sick and that ruined my whole trip. The creamer in the machine it was spoiled cream. I went to a Pharmacist and they recommend it pills for nausea. But it turned out I got a bug and I was really sick in the stomach. I had this problem for ''18 DAYS''. I went on a cruise and I had to wait until I got back. To get treatment after I had to do tests. I'm taking second set of medications because ''FIRST SET DID'NT WORK' 'So you better watch what you put in your month. Other wise the hotel was ok! I would never go back. The price was to much. The food is basically rolls and sweets No meat or hard boiled eggs. The cereal was in a container so who knows if there is bacteria. The foods is exposed to the open not covered in containers because of sitting out.

The hotel and its room are average. The room and bathroom could use a little makeover, but you can tell the building is old (quite a distance between reception and rooms). Location is good, very close to the train station and a short walk from sights such as the Aquarium. However, the big positive of this hotel is the man on reception. He gave us the best service in all of Italy, he was very happy and welcoming and made sure everything was okay. The hotel doesn't do him justice!
