With its candy pink and white-striped facade, the five-star Grand Hotel Savoia is close to Genoa’s suave waterfront, which is a-buzz with fishing boats and luxury yachts. Spilling down the hillside towards the sea, Genoa is a romantic city with narrow, winding streets, hanging gardens and a Medieval old town, steeped in history.
In the center of it all, the Grand Hotel Savoia offers a flamboyant level of luxury, with cool marble floors, lofty ceilings and decidedly opulent furnishings. The gourmet restaurant offers elegant Italian dishes, and the trattoria has more of a rustic vibe, with traditional Genoan flavors.
The elaborate spa is a real treat, with a high-end range of facilities including a bio sauna, a hydro suite, a chromotherapy room and an outdoor terrace where you can survey the city below.
Hotel Grand Savoia’s rooms are as eclectic in style as the rest of the hotel. Period photographs depicting a Genoa of old decorate the bed boards, while modern conveniences abound, from the en-suite bathroom to the Wi-Fi. Classic rooms, each 150 square feet, come with a queen-size bed, an en-suite bathroom, internal views and complimentary Wi-Fi. Executive rooms evoke the romance of travel, with period pictures, vintage trunks and furniture from trans-Atlantic liners making up the décor, alongside lovely views towards the town of Genoa.
Restaurant Salgari offers traditional Italian and fresh seafood from an elegant and refined setting and, over summer, dishes are served on the sophisticated outdoor terrace. Trattoria Tralalero offers a more casual setting, with a menu of authentic Ligurian dishes, and Bar Royale is an opulent setting for a cocktail or two with plush leather armchairs and a grand piano to boot. On the seventh floor of Grand Hotel Savoia you’ll find Settimocielo Aperitif, an exclusive location with a rich buffet and live music, plus enviable elevated-terrace views.
Grand Hotel Savoia has a decadent on site spa allowing you the ultimate indulgence. Bubble your blues away with a spell in the Jacuzzi, or create your own water journey with a session in the emotional shower. Double water beds provide the perfect pit-stop, to help you truly unwind. There’s also a fitness center, if some light exercise is your way to de-stress.
Genoa is the capital of the coastal region of Liguria and Italy’s sixth largest city. This historical port city was made a European Capital of Culture in 2004, giving its rivals Rome, Florence and Venice a good run for their money. Christopher Columbus was born here and Genoa boasts one of Europe’s biggest aquariums. Luxurious boutiques sit alongside ornate churches, all blanketed in a swathe of pastel-colored roof tops to create an enchanting and quintessentially Italian city.
How to Get There
Stayed here for our 10th wedding anniversary & what a joy. Wonderful hotel & decor, convenient location. The old fashioned coffee machine is amazing, make sure you check it out. All the staff were extremely helpful & we even had a travel bag when we left with mints, water & freshener wipes. Would totally recommend & stay again.
The location was perfect for our one week stay in Genoa. Walking distance to attractions, shops and restaurants. The train station is also conveniently located across the street. It was very easy to take trips to Cinque Terre and Santa Margherita via the train. Distance from airport is about 15 min.
All the staff except one at the front desk were friendly and extremely helpful. Check-in and check out were easy and quick. Our classic room was small but for Italy not too bad. It was fine for our needs - clean, plenty of towels, good amenities, comfortable bed. Nice views from the 7th fl. The elevators always came so quickly too.
The buffet breakfast was just okay in my opinion. There is an assortment of breads, fruits, meats, but the hot foods could use some improvement. Everything was the same the entire time we were there - the same bacon, same sausage, same eggs, same cold cuts, etc. A little change every few days would be nice. We saw someone behind the omelet station only one time during our entire stay. Staff in the dining room were very friendly.
We had dinner at the restaurant Tralalero one night and the food was excellent.
We most definitely enjoyed our stay here and the convenient location to everywhere around the city.
As soon as you walk in, you get the feeling that this is going to be nice and relaxing old world experience. The people at the front desk were very helpful, As you enter, there is a large old world lobby with a lobby bar. There are two different but nice restaurants. A buffet breakfast is included and it is fantastic. The breakfast staff is very good. We met a number of nice and interesting fellow travelers at the hotel. The hotel is a very short walk from the train station & buses. The room and bath were somewhat on the small side, but certainly more than adequate.
Small rooms with all the essentials even a hot pot. The breakfast was awesome with lots of fresh fruits and hot dishes plus the wonderful fresh baked breads. The lobby was old world elegance with stuff sofas. This hotel is within walking distance of the central train station. The front desk is very user friendly and lots of helpful information about the city of Genoa.
The buildling is very grand, old fashioned, but everything kept in order and clean. Very nice ist the roof top view. Breakfast and spa are enjoyable as well. What i do not recommend ist the "classic room" we booked. It is quite small and rather stuffy. But the location is good, About ten minutes walk into the old town, five to harbour and marine muiseum, right next to the train station (trains can be heard at night).
