The Meliá Genova is a five-star hotel in Genoa, located in the residential district of Carignano in what used to be the headquarters of Genoa, Italy¿s biggest iron and steel manufacturer.

Classic and imposing on the outside, modern, luxurious and elegant in its furnishings, the Meliá Genova is the ideal venue for business and equally leisure travelers on holiday. The building was designed by Genoese architect Giuseppe Crosa di Vergagni in 1929 and has now been brought back to life by a complete makeover, welcoming guests in the exclusive Carignano district just steps away from the city¿s business and financial centre, the Teatro Carlo Felice and the Genoa Aquarium. For art enthusiasts, the hall and the restaurant feature two installations created ad hoc by Silvio Wolf, the internationally renowned Milanese artist. The rooms display works by three other famous Italian photographers, Mario Cresci, Leonardo Genovese and Francesco Radino.
Cons: Horrible WIFI.
Bad coffee and not many healthy choices at breakfast.
Terrible parking. Nowhere to unload the car, the parking is slow,
Off site and expensive. The Brustol has no door person and this hotel needs one.

Cons: The first room:TV and bedside lamp did not work.The second room layout had not been well thought out to enable easy use of the available facilities.
Pros: This hotel is perfect if you are looking for a regular romantic holiday break.
The staff were very friendly and welcoming on arrival. My husband and I speak various languages, and so they were happy to accommodate, and even teach us some Italian phrases. They also pointed us to various things to do in Genoa and the surrounding areas, such as boat excursions to Camogli-San Fruttuoso-Portofino. The restaurant manager was extremely helpful and welcoming; I felt a bit ill during dinner one night and went down to the room, while he arranged to have my food brought to the room, which was a kind touch.
The room is pretty and tastefully decorated.
The Spa facilities are excellent, with a sauna, 'tepid room', steam room, hydropool, comfortable lounge chairs, showers, ice dispenser, teas and snacks available.
We liked the rooftop jacuzzi - very relaxing.
Cons: Please note that the following are merely notes that can be built upon:
Although this was a fantastic hotel for a regular holiday, I would have expected a little more from management for our honeymoon (we were married the day before). My husband had notified the hotel that this was our honeymoon several months ahead. Given that this was a 5* hotel, I had high expectations for our honeymoon. Upon arrival into our room, however, my first reaction was that the room was a little disappointing as it was rather small and in the corner of the hotel at the back (giving onto an apartment's hanging laundry). My husband had arranged rose petals (lovely touch, spread in hearts on the bed) and champagne on arrival. However, there was no champagne and he had to call Reception to remind them to bring it up, which arrived while he was in the shower, and so I had to sign the bill - which greatly embarrassed my husband.
I later learned that the hotel had suggested upgrading our room to a honeymoon suite (100euros extra per night) and that the roses cost 30euros and champagne 80euros.
Having traveled extensively to 5* hotels all over the world for two decades, and having made inquiries over that time, I was made aware that honeymooners tend to get complementary 'special treatments' from hotels to make their honeymoon extremely special (for example, complementary/discounted room upgrade, complementary rose petals, fruit baskets, discounted couple's massage etc) and I suppose to retain these customers. I am aware that Grand Hotel Savoia is a business that needs to profit. However, I would suggest that the hotel consider better ways of catering for honeymooners, which would be a good way of retaining these customers. For instance, we would have absolutely loved a complementary/discounted room upgrade to a front-facing room, without having to ask, and simple little extras (like a complimentary small fruit bowl in the room upon arrival). Furthermore, I was a bit surprised about having to pay £30 for the rose petals, and I was disappointed by the above issue with the champagne. Just some notes for future reference.
Pros: Loved the location, our room was large, comfortable, clean. The staff were wonderful and breakfast excellent.
Pros: We had a wonderful stay - our view was of a beautiful courtyard with all of Florence beyond, the staff were super helpful, breakfast was ample (and available till noon!), and the breakfast staff fantastic. Would very much recommend this hotel :)

You can indulge in facials or aromatherapy, and Ristorante Salgari serves breakfast and dinner. A rooftop terrace and a bar/lounge are other highlights, and rooms at this luxurious hotel offer up nice touches like deep soaking tubs and Frette Italian sheets.
Fully renovated, this Art-Nouveau-style historical hotel is in front of the Principe railway station. 44 elegant rooms with wood floors, WIFI access and air conditioning. Some rooms feature a whirlpool bath, bow windows and views of the Piazza Acquaverde. Delicious breakfast with local produce. The Trattoria Tralalero serves traditional dishes in a friendly setting. 10-min walk from the center and well served by public transport. 15-min from the Cristoforo Colombo airport by taxi. Fitness center and spa.
Pros: The hotel was, clean, friendly, secure and private.
Cons: I didn't care for the choice of jazz music in the breakfast room. Otherwise, a brilliant hotel in a brilliant city.

If you like being in a marina atmosphere, this hotel is great. However, be sure to ask for that view. We faced a parking lot. At twice the price for any hotel we paid for on our trip, that view was disappointing.
Pros: Since we were flying out early in the morning, being next to the airport was great.
Cons: Because we were there the beginning of October, they had shut the air conditioning off in all rooms. It was a very warm day and the room was hot. We were not able to sleep well before our flight. That was an expensive room not to have air conditioning.
The rooms overlooking the harbor are awesome. The staff is really friendly and accomodating. The breakfast was good. Stroll around the harbor, the best!
Pros: It is a really beautiful room right on the marina.
Cons: It is a bit isolated from the town. We drove to a nearby shopping center and took a bus to the old city so we wouldn't have to drive.
