Some of the rooms feature characteristic “bow windows” with three panes that overlook one of the most famous squares of Genoa.

    Hotel Continental Genova We loved the breakfast - it was possibly the best we had in our 6 week trip. Especially appreciated was the range of fresh fruit and the wide choice. We also appreciated the helpfulness of staff in allowing us to print off train tickets and leave our luggage after check out.
