Locanda di Palazzo Cicala Locanda di Palazzo Cicala


Fascinating hotel in the heart of Genoa right opposite the San Lorenzo cathedral, near Porto Antico (old port) and the Genoa Aquarium and within easy reach of the train station.

Summer 2002 saw the opening of Palazzo Cicala's Locanda on the noble floor of the sixteenth-seventeenth century building, which, following careful restoration, has now become a modern, sophisticated hotel with great charme. The Locanda fully satisfies both the business traveller and the curious, attentive tourist looking to be captured by the various beauties that ‘La Superba' can offer.

The hotel in Genoa old town is a strategic choice to experience both the city of art - the Duke's Palace, Via Garibaldi Museum Pole, Carlo Felice theatre, narrow Mediaeval streets, large churches - and the modern, thriving business city - the Porto Nuovo (new port), Cotone Congressi (Cotton Warehouse Congress Center), trade fair, university, regional council, town hall and elegant shop-lined streets.

The family hotel for those travelling with children is Genoa's address of reference for the discovery of the Aquarium and the Città dei bambini (city of children), reachable in just a few minutes. The exterior features an imposing eighteenth century facade facing onto Piazzetta delle Scuole Pie and a Mediaeval loggia looking out onto Piazza San Lorenzo. The entrance door and monumental stairway preserve the evocative magic of the Genoese aristocratic palaces. The hall enjoys a triumphal view of the gothic cathedral, summing up the hotel's style, updating the spaces of the past with contemporary design colours and forms, where light, sober hues are brightened by lively touches to regale a new freshness and ease of use.

Guests are happily welcomed with information on the city, museums, trade fairs, restaurants, spectacles, events, boat trips, special offers, family packages and much more besides.

The Locanda di Palazzo Cicala wishes to provide a stay inspired by the great Genoese tradition of hospitality in the great palaces, the Rolli, to allow you to enjoy a truly memorable journey or holiday.

The double rooms of the Locanda almost all face out onto the quiet Piazza Scuola Pie and feature a light, airy ambiance with high vaulted ceilings decorated with elegant stucco work, highlighting and preserving atmospheres and memories of wellbeing and refined antiquity.

Inside, the sought-after, essential furnishings reveal the harmonious blend of ancient spaces, contemporary design and various items of haute époque furniture. The lighting techniques mirror the very best products available with the latest designs, the first of its kind of the Genoa hotels.

The suites are perfect for families travelling with young children. A babysitting service is available on request.

Breakfast is served in the elegant hall and technology is at your service: wi-fi internet connection is available to our guests into the hotel round the clock and into our rooms and apartments directly on demand.
