Locanda di Palazzo Cicala has all the magic of a "hotel de charme". It is located in the very heart of the historic city centre, opposite S. Lorenzo Cathedral, just a short walk from the Old Harbour, the Cotone Congressi congress centre and the art exhibitions in Palazzo Ducale. The hotel occupies the first floor of the historic and newly renovated Palazzo Cicala, which dates back to the 17th century and has undergone a complete restoration in the original style in 2002. On the outside, the main building front features magnificent stucco decorations and the remains of a medieval loggia on the façade overlooking Piazza Duomo. The interiors, on the other hand, have been refurbished according to the precepts of contemporary design, with minimalist lines and sober colours creating an elegance that is offset by a few carefully chosen period pieces. Our large, airy rooms, with high arched ceilings embellished with stucco work and decorations, evoke the magic of the past while offering every modern convenience. Locanda di Palazzo Cicala carefully matches the solemn majesty of traditional Genoese architecture with the modern vivacity of colour boasted by contemporary design.
