Old and dumpy

TripAdvisor rating 2.0/5

szalonyJoePlfeadsffd 08/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

its not novotel quality. the worst novotel I've ever been. The rug on the floor was disgusting. The bathtub doesn't work (can't pull up the plug when full of water). Bathroom is like from 80-90 everything was old and dirty. Toilet seat was yellow and cracked. only good thing was the view, Genoa lighthouse is right in front.

one night only

Mei Families - 04/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

the room is clean, the personal are friendly, the pool is clean. The breakfast buffet was a bit chaos because you have to wait pretty long since you could not take it by yourself because of covid. the coffee machine could be a bit better.

Easy access, clean facilities.

Customer review rating 3.0/5

We didn't use facilities other than our room and it was comfortable and clean. Breakfast, considering the pandemic situation, maybe could have been organized differently ? with prebooked schedules to avoid having so many people at once in a single lane for example. Staff was helpful, parking is a plus .

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We hope to welcome you back to our hotel very soon! Sincerely, Enrico PERARI Front Office Manager Novotel Genova City

This time, I had the rare chance of being in the hotel in the afternoon. For some children the floor hallway was a racing track with unlimited noise making. Unfortunately their parents were not interested in minding their off-springs and I used my noise cancelling headphone to reduce the noise. The room with bed and shower facilities were good.

Awful service and facility, several issues, lack of courtesy

Customer review rating 0.5/5

Felipe Families - 04/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

It was the worst hotel experience in my life. There were several issues as from our arrival… lines for checkin, room was not properly set up (we made reservations for a family room, but only one bed was ready), we did not have enough pillows neither blankets… safe was not working… staff was slow to solve issues and did not do it with care and courtesy… parking lot entrance broken, very tight parking spots, HUGE line for breakfast, problems to use swimming pool, etc… several issues which forced me to leave the hotel (and the city) one night before original reservation and lose time/money.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. While I wish you had a better experience, it is feedback like this that we learn from and use to improve. We work hard to deliver an exceptional guest experience, and it's apparent in this case that we fell short. If you give us a chance to earn back your trust, I can assure you that we will do our best to give you the great hotel experience that so many of our guests have grown so fond of.

Some problems during the breakfast. A lot of people, not enough coffee machines, not enough organisation… a little “caos”.

A. Families - 09/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

it was ok but the hotel is outdated so it needs urgent renovation or else you should change the pictures with the real ones; cleaning it's not enough anymore...

great personnel

Pleasant staff, clean room, secure parking for reasonable price. Breakfast and dinner ok

Well located, not a real 4 stars

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Ventimiglia Couples - 15/05/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel was very nice placed to sleep there for one night but its furniture is very old fashion not in a classic way, just old and kind of deteriorating on the carpet and shower. The A/C is pretty noisy. I think with a good refurbishment I will consider to go again there, otherwise you must lower the classification and princing.

Things are missing in my room

Pas de mini bar (vide) the minibar was empty No kettle and coffee maker in the room. I chose a superior room for these services!!! But friendly staff

Comfortable room but some shortcomings

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Michael L. Families - 23/08/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The room was spacious and comfortable, and good value. Staff at reception were helpful and friendly. The location is not great, but we expected that. The main disadvantages were: (1) just two lifts (elevators) for the whole hotel, leading to long waits and (2) although breakfast was included in the price, there was a very long queue to get into breakfast so that it was not worth it.

Good stay

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Atif T. Families - 16/08/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

It was overall a good stay. Room was a little tight but ok. Breakfast was good. Location was also ok. Staff could improve in more friendlier way.

Enjoyable but improvement needed

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

RickM1566 Family - 03/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

We stayed twice at the Novotel in Genoa. The 1st time it poured rain and both rooms and the evacuation doors leaked like a sieve. Both times the carpet needed vacuuming in the rooms and the foyer bar areas. If not they need to be replaced. I dusted two cushioned chairs to sit on and plumes of dust came off them. But, staff on the front desk were excellent and you couldn't want for more. The lunchtime buffet was great and breakfast was excellent with a big variety to offer. Coffee and tea in all rooms would be better than just in some rooms. Yes I would go back again, but the carpet and water leaks need to be addressed.

Not so welcome drink

TripAdvisor rating 2.0/5

Jeroen v Family - 20/10/2019 TripAdvisor review

Regular Novotel, Nice that they have a piano. When we arrived we got a welcome drink, but only for 1 px? So the rest (3 px) we had to pay?? (We never experienced this before) So this Novotel only uses the accor loyalty program to raise their revenue.

Dear Jeroen v, thank you for taking your time to reporting your feedback concerning your accommodation at the Novotel Genova City Hoping to welcome you again in our hotel, I take this opportunity to send you my best regards. Sincerely Marco Majolino General Manager NOVOTEL Genova City

Nice hotel, good location close to the old center and the waterfront. On site parking and a good restaurant on site. Good breakfast, rooms are clean and staff are very nice to deal with. Would stay there again.

Far from Novotel standards

TripAdvisor rating 2.0/5

André G Family - 13/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

Bathroom not clean Bath tube plugged And the worst. The hotel did not provide the breakfast for my 5yo son as per Novotel policy. I don't recommend this hotel. It's far from the Novotel service standards.

Dear André G, I'm sorry that your stay at the Novotel Genova City was not up to your expectations, and please, accept our most sincere apologies. I assure you that we have taken all necessary actions to ensure a comfortable stay for all our clients. About the breakfast as per Novotel policy for the child's the breakfast is offer for a max of 2 child if the parents take the breakfast. We are ready to welcoming you again, trying to regain your confidence. Yours sincerely Marco Majolino General Manager NOVOTEL Genova City
