    Albergo Acquaverde ad travelled all over Italy and this was my last stay in genoa before I embarked on a ship. There was a shared toilet n bath. I never book a room without en suite.tthe attendant was rude and said he can do nil even I agreed to pay more.lucky I was boarding a ship so I skipped using the common facility and used the ships. Then he told me breakfast was complimentary and when I checked out as it was prepaid he said first I had a surcharge to pay and when I enquired he told me it's was breakfast. When I reminded him of what he said he denied. This hotel was a ripp off and will never recommend it to anyone.I met friends on the ship and they stayed at better hotels with ensuite and breakfast and paid 20 euros less than what I paid .very disappointed

    Albergo Acquaverde Good value for money, i was very happy about my choice. My room was cozy and nicely decorated. Good, central location. It might look a bit dated at first sight but it provides a good service.

    Albergo Acquaverde Map directions are poor, looks to be far further from station than it is, I walked past the hotel twice expecting it to be much further from station. Room originally allocated had a problem so had to be changed to room with shared bathroom, I wasn't happy about that but staff did everything possible to make up for it, including reduced price and free breakfast, they staff were wonderful.

    Albergo Acquaverde Helpful staff. Replace light bulb in room immediately when requested. No instructions in room for how to use air conditioning. Traffic noise from the street is high for this room. Had to open window because couldn't get a/c working, this increased traffic noise.
