Hotel Cairoli



Located in the heart of the historic center of Genoa (declared an UNESCO World Heritage Site in July
2006), and housed within the noble designs of the 16th century palazzo of the Rolli Lomellini on Via Cairoli, the Hotel Cairoli is in a truly ideal location among the hotels of Genoa.

Set within the labyrinth of the Strade Nuove (once called Strada Nuovissima), Via Cairoli is the continuation of Via Garibaldi. A pleasant 3-minute walk from the hotel takes you to the Rolli, the ancient palazzos of Genoa, which were among the first buildings constructed here between the 1500 and 1700. Resplendent in both Renaissance and Baroque styles, the Rolli, with their open staircases, courtyards, balconies, and hanging gardens are magnificent and singular examples of astonishingly beautiful architecture. These antique dwellings housed the most well-known noble families in Genoa, who were enrolled on special lists (i Rolli, or, “the rolls”) and were obliged to host illustrious guests on their visits to the Republic.

Located only 300 meters from the Hotel Cairoli, be sure not to miss the Palazzo Bianco, number 11, which contains an art gallery housing gorgeous Italian and Flemish masterpieces; Palazzo Rosso (Via Garibaldi 18), with its luxurious stucco, baroque frescoes, and the paintings of Bernardo Strozzi and Van Dyck; and at n. 9, Palazzo Tursi, the present-day town council hall, with its spectacular staircase. 100 meters from Hotel Cairoli is San Siro, the old cathedral of Genoa and one of the most ancient churches in the city, and San Filippo Neri, which holds a magnificent organ from the 1500’s, and an auditorium known throughout Italy for its excellent acoustics (Premio Paganini). The Casa di Mazzini and the Museum of the Risorgimento are in Via Lomellini 11, just one minute from the Hotel Cairoli.

300 meters from the hotel is the magnificent Genoa Aquarium, the largest aquarium in Europe, and the Bigo, with architecture inspired by the shape of ship loading cranes and fitted with panoramic elevators, the work of Renzo di Piano, the famous Genoese architect. Beyond the Rolli, a 10-minute walk away from the Hotel Cairoli brings you to the most beautiful and celebrated sites and monuments in Genoa.


Unique and historic surroundings and a familiar and courteous atmosphere welcome guests of the Hotel Cairoli, located in the heart of Genoa. Built from the noble design of a patrician palazzo from the 1500’s and equipped with a comfortable elevator, Attilio and Giovanna receive their guests in the common areas of the hotel: 24-hour reception, TV room, reading room, and bar, available 24 hours for a drink, an espresso or a snack — ideal for relaxing or socializing. Mediterranean buffet-style breakfast is served in the breakfast room and, as weather permits, on the terrace of the hotel. The workout room of the Hotel Cairoli, helps you keep in shape, whether at work or at play, and offers massage and professional shiatzu and reiki treatments.

All common rooms are available to guests, providing pleasant spaces in which to spend your free time during your stay in Genoa. The meeting room, with a capacity of 20, completes the list of common spaces at the hotel.

The Hotel Cairoli offers superior service among the 3 star hotels of Genoa: internet access and daily newspapers, transfer and laundry service, affiliated restaurants and garage, recreational boat excursions with or without a skipper, reservations for tours and guided excursions, and much more.
