Hotel Vittoria & Orlandini3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
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!
Let's start mentioning the rate. I took a discount, thanks to an agreement between the hotel and the company I work for, so my room rate is probably uncommon. But I paid only 46 euro all inclusive, overnight plus breakfast (decent, especially in relation to a 3 star): so the value for money is really great. The decor and bathroom in my room were not modern, anyway they worked fine and all was very clean. The service is courteous. The hotel is very convenient for those arriving by train: the "Genova Piazza Principe" station is literally a five minute walk. The hotel is in a typically Genoese setting, at the foot of a steep slope transformed through centuries of urbanization. You take the elevator (private) just to climb the slope and get to the front desk. I slept only one night but I think this was enough to give me a (positive) idea of the hotel.
Lovely family run hotel. Very friendly and very clean. Close to the train station and also the port where we caught our cruise. Within walking distance to restaurants. One of the owners was very helpful with information about the area. Rooms were small but lovely and clean
Stayed a couple of nights in November. Decided to go for this hotel as it is close to the train station at a very reasonable price. Thankfully there is a lift from the street up to reception where we were met by a very friendly, polite gentleman who checked us in quickly even though we were early. Room not made up when we got there but this was not a problem as we were heading out. Room was quite spacious, clean with furnishings quite basic, bathroom a little dated but this is an old hotel. Walls quite thin as we heard our neighbours during the night!! Good breakfast served in a nice dining area. Short walk to all the attractions and next door to train station. If you are looking for luxury this hotel is not for you. I would stay here again as I loved the charm of the hotel and the friendliness of the people we met there.
