I would give the Hotel Genova a 5 rating without hesitation except for the fact that our supposedly non-smoking room had clearly been smoked in. Other than that, it was great. Room was very clean, bed was comfortable, location across from the beach was ideal, loved the rooftop terrace, and the breakfast was ample and delicious. We will definitely stay there again, but won't hesitate to change rooms, if necessary. (Problem there would be if none were available. Unfortunately, the cigarette smell didn't hit us right away--window may have been left open to dispel it--and it wasn't until we had closed the window, left and returned, that we could clearly smell it. We were there only for only two nights, and upon check-in, when inquiring if other rooms were available, were told they were not, so we figured we had to live with it.)

Thank you very much for your review. All our rooms are non smoking but, unfortunately, few guests have bad manners (2 or 3 guests per year). In this case we use special products for air.
I don’t remember your stay but why didn’t you ask at the reception if it was possible to change the room?
I think that talking at the reception is the best way to solve problems.
I hope to see you again in our hotel.

My wife and I stayed here and used as a base to visit Cinque Terre and Portofino. After three days we regretted not having another day or two to spend more time in Sestri Lavante. It has a beautiful promenade just a short block from the hotel and a charming old town a few minutes away. The hotel is very clean, quiet and modern. The breakfast served everything you might like including fresh fruit like melons and pears. The family who owns the hotel were very helpful and clearly took great pride in their hotel.

This was just a lovely and friendly place. Very clean, good location, tasty breakfast and, most importantly, very friendly and helpful owners. Sestri Levante is a sweet little town with an Italian feel. It is far less touristy than nearby Cinque Terre (I mean foreign tourists, it is actually very popular with Italian tourists). We chose it as a base to explore Cinque Terre, but Sestri Levante itself is a true gem and much more relaxed than Cinque Terre. Hotel Genova was just perfect for us. Only a few minutes walk from the train station, with good connections to Milan, Cinque Terre and other destinations. It is within a short walk to local bars, restaurants, the beach etc. The decor is simple and functional. The room we stayed in was very spacious and impeccably clean. We would happily stay there again, if we are ever in that beautiful part of Italy again.

We stayed here 8 days and was very pleased with the staff, the room and location 50 m from the beach. It was good beds and very clean rooms. The center of Sestri levante is only a 5 minutes walk from the hotel. We can really recommend this familyrunned hotel!
