1.27km from Terralba CafeI stayed at the Hotel Fiume with my family in early April 2019. This is the first time that we have been to Italy and chose Genoa because it was easy to reach from my local airport in Bristol and the city isn’t far from Genoa airport. The Volabus that stops outside the terminal building takes you more or less straight to the hotel and it takes about half an hour. The cost is €6 per person (child or adult) one way. The hotel is centrally located in Genoa right on the doorstep of the main shopping area and about a half an hour walk from the harbour area. It’s also very handy for buses to neighbouring towns as well as the main Genoa train station which is about a 5 minute walk away if you want to go further afield. The hotel is small and has the feeling of a ‘hostel’ about it, but it’s very clean and well appointed. I would imagine that it was a residential property at some point in the past that has been converted into a hotel. Our room was small, but perfectly adequate for our purposes. Small bathroom with a shower (no bath) and all the usual bathroom amenities! One wardrobe was provided and no safe. TV on the wall with Sky TV albeit in Italian. We were able to catch some live Premier league football in our room which was a novelty! There is Sky News and BBC World news in English but that was the only English language channels I could locate. Reception staff are very friendly and more than willing to help. Most of them speak good English but one or two only speak Italian, therefore it is a good idea to learn the basics before you go! No Breakfast is served at this hotel, although there is a McDonalds in the city as well as a number of café’s around. There is a McDonalds on the corner, but it doesn’t open until 10.30am. There isn’t a bar or a restaurant onsite either. There was a coffee and tea vending machine and a kettle is provided in the room, although you will have to supply the tea, coffee, milk & sugar! There is a supermarket about 5 minutes’ walk away. All in all, don’t expect a lot from this hotel as it literally is just a bed and room for the night, but it represents very good value for shorter stays and is in a very good position within the city. If going to Genoa again, I would have no hesitation in staying here again.
