Romantic hotel in one of the most elegant areas of Genova
In a style that steals the charm of the typical Chinese buildings, what is now a beautiful hotel was born in the very first years of 1800 for the desire of a rich Genoese merchant who hoped in this way to appease the violent homesickness of the beautiful girl with almond eyes which he fell in love with during one of his travels.
Setting foot in its premises means not only breathing the scent of a great and ancient passion but also letting yourself be transported back in time by walls, floors and furnishings that have been witnesses of refined and eccentric lifestyles, meeting place of famous people and venue of luxurious patrician parties.
Definitely recommended for an unforgettable stay in Genoa
There is no way you can get to the historical center more comfortably than from here directly by train. If you are going to the Cinque Terre from the United States, you can fly to Genoa and stop here for a few days to neutralize jet lag before continuing by train. The area around the hotel is perfect for walking and is a stone's throw from the sea. The architecture and interior design of the villa are delightful.

Refined and well-kept environment
We stayed here one night on the way between Provence and Lucca. If we had known how beautiful the hotel was we would have definitely stayed for 2 nights. Our room was spacious, with a balcony and a sea view. One point to note is that the hotel has interesting works of art scattered here and there in the corridors and public areas. Such attention to detail can be said to be rare these days.

Stunning hotel with classic charm.
Had an amazing week at this hotel in June 2018. Exceeded my expectations. The hotel is extremely clean and beautifully presented. The staff go out of their way to welcome you and take care of your every need. Our room was fantastic. We had a north facing room with a balcony overlooking the car park area. Great views of the Ligurian hills. The bed is probably the most comfortable I’ve ever had and I travel a great deal. Easy access through the back of the hotel to the Passeggiata Anita Garibaldi. This is a paved coastal path that takes you through stunning views of the sea and rocky outcrops. This is really stunning. A 10 minute walk gets you to a few restaurants on the sea front and the train station. 7 minutes on a train gets you into Genoa Brignole if you want to explore the city. Overall, I highly recommend this place and hope to return in the future.

A beautiful villa surrounded by a charming garden. A stone's throw from the promenade of Nervi with a dominant position overlooking the sea. Comfortable hotel, finely restored and well cared for. The staff is courteous and helpful. In my opinion the best of Nervi.
