A mix of modern trends and tradition in the old part of Genoa.
In truth, there seems to be a dearth of charming hotels in the interesting city of Genoa and the Palazzo Cicala, though occupying the first floor of a lovely historic building in the old part of town overlooking the Piazza Duomo, is more a home from home rather than a hotel. It is high on classy charm whilst foregoing some of those hotel like facilities.Guests will not be failed to be impressed by the historical architecture on the outside, just witness the wonderful stucco ornaments for example, and the way it links up with the complete restoration inside, one based on contemporary design and minimalist lines.
The end result is one of sober lines, modern elegance and even futuristic sofas and armchairs, coupled with a number of period pieces. As for the rooms, these are all on the large side – around 40 square metres - with high arched ceilings embellished with stucco work and decor whilst, offering modern conveniences brought about by the renovation work. All rooms also go out onto the spacious living room overlooking the Piazza San Lorenzo, where guests can sip an aperitif and enjoy the delightful views of the Duomo.
Undoubtedly, the Locanda di Palazzo is an interesting proposition for a stay in this rather underrated Genoa. Florence, Milan, Venice may be bigger names, but Genoa still has a lot to offer and with the Locanda di Palazzo Cical being so well located in the historic part of town, the end result is that many of the most interesting monuments and places to see can be seen comfortably on foot.
Important to know: Due to its great location in the heart of the city, it is difficult to find parking spaces next to the hotel. Furthermore, there's no lift to reach the first floor.

Date of stay 13/10/2017
Rooms very very very nice. Communication and signage very poor. Location excellent, parking awful 1. Havent seen such lovely rooms often. beautfully done, clean, roomy, quiet. Perfect five star 2. Signage & communicationvery very poor. Some directions for access very confusing, some dont work. For example, we were told we could take lift to first floor.It didnt work at all. When we staggered up the stairs with luggage to first floor, noone at reception. No key waiting. knockled on "private" door. person in there amonsgt the boilers and cleaning stuff helped. When leaving, nowhere to put key after we put luggage in car. Fortunately someone opened the door. WiFi code not in room. Really needs improvement. 3. WiFi great, location wonderful. Couldnt be improved. 4. Parking was a huge problem. Noone wants to stagger 400 m to a room (four star hotel) with lots of luggage. They need to make this VERY clear which they do not. They should make an arragement that guests can park outside to offload, and then go elsewhere to park, parking vouchers could be provided. 5. The website site says breakfast. no breakfast. thats very odd for a four star. Overall i liked it but there were significant inconveniences that I think would ensure I did not book in there again, which is a huge pity because its lovely. The person on duty by the way, when we DID manage to locate her, was also lovely
