Genoa's Hotel Bristol Palace is set in a magnificent Art Nouveau building, complete with original frescoes and a show-stopping elliptical staircase that spirals its way to the top floor of the hotel. Alfred Hitchcock was a guest in the 1920s, and looking at the staircase, it's not hard to see why it's rumoured to be the inspiration behind his thriller, "Vertigo".

With its lavish interiors, and features including crystal chandeliers and marble floors, the prestigious 4-star hotel, which is near the Palazzo Ducale and Piazza de Ferrari in central Genoa, has had a reputation for opulence since it opened in 1905.

The hotel offers a 24-hour concierge service which can arrange tickets for sports and musical events. There's also a playroom for younger guests, as well as child-friendly menu options, making the hotel a popular choice with families.

For those choosing to dine at the Hotel Bristol Palace, the elegant second-floor Giotto Restaurant offers a seasonal à la carte menu that uses fresh local ingredients. From April to September, diners can eat al fresco on the hotel's terrace. There are also two bars.

Rooms are soundproofed and have all the features you would expect of a 4-star hotel, including mini bars, air-conditioning and satellite television. There are also luxurious suites, some of which have hydro-massage tubs and views over the Piazza de Ferrari and Palazzo Ducale.
