Hotel review Grand Hotel Savoia, Genoa

Genoa is a beautiful city to visit, with its own ancient charm. If you want to add a more historical flavour to your stay, check what the 5 star Grand Hotel Savoia can offer. Genoa's history is reflected in the decor of the 117 hotel rooms.

Location: It’s very convenient if you arrive in Genoa by train because the hotel is located close to both Porta Principe railway station and the famous bay. The hotel is also well connected to the Cristoforo Colombo Airport and the motorway. Grand Hotel Savoia is housed in a stunning nine-story building in classical style. The hotel is in a slightly elevated position overlooking the town.

Lobby area: is nicely decorated with vintage furniture. Decorations and small details make you feel like you went back in time. There is a reading room next to the lobby.

Room: The classic room size is 15 m2. If you want to feel really comfortable, I would recommend booking an executive or deluxe room instead. The bed is comfortable, the pillows soft and relaxing. The room has a minibar. There is a bath with a good quality shower. Toiletries are provided. Wi-Fi was free everywhere, providing permanent and high speed internet access.

Meals: breakfast was included in my room rate. The breakfast selection should leave everyone satisfied. I enjoyed a wide choice of fresh products, good quality coffee. The pleasant historical restaurant interior makes some people think of old Agatha Christie movies.

Facilities: I didn’t use any extra facilities.

Drawbacks: The classic rooms are small. Parking is 25 Euros per day. The hotel bar is quite pricey- two gin and tonics were €30.
Time of stay: One night in May 2016.
Price per night: Starting from 116 Euros excluding breakfast.
Booked at:
My rating: 4/5.

thsi hotel looks fantastic! I like this classy but not too posh and fancy look and the price seems alright as well! Nice find!
Wow, this hotel is stunning. I don't mind a smaller room when it's this gorgeous and the breakfast looks amazing.
Such a nice hotel ! I love the style of it !The breakfast looks fabulous, I would stay there just for it :D Great review!!
I'm in the middle of planning a trip to Italy, so the timing for me to read this post was perfect. The hotel looks luxurious, and has that lovely historic look about it. The buffet for breakfast also looks delicious. Being located right next to the train station is another bonus. I will definitely be considering it if we go to Genoa

What a lovely hotel! I find it so charming when old style furniture can be presented with such a modern feel. I'm a sucker for antiques, but not always old places. This looks like the ideal spot to cherish the charm!

Once you mentioned Agatha Christie, I immediately could picture all the books I read in my childhood! The decor is absolutely stunning, definitely a step back in time. The location seems ideal.
I love the vintage decor of Grand Hotel Savoia. I can't believe that delicious looking breakfast buffet is included in your room rate!
Looks like a nice hotel. BUT the breakfast spread blew me away! To me, the breakfast is the most important part of any hotel stay :)

This looks very nice Anita and great review of the hotel. I really like the old style throughout and the breakfast selection also looks great! Thanks for the suggestion and telling us about your experience.
