I was visiting a friend in Genova end of november and stayed 4 nights at Bin & Ban - which was an excellent idea. Everything was very nice - from the welcome to the tea in the room to the breakfast.

We had a great stay at Bin e Ban, Anna made us feel very welcome and at home. Excellent home cooked Genoese breakfast to start the day, perfect. Our room opened out on to the roof garden with splendid views of the city. Bin e Ban is in the right place not to close to the city not too far... More

Bin and Ban is up the hill from one of the main railway stations in Genoa (Brignole). The neighborhood is beautiful and the road (and internal stairways) are lined with the stuccos and the curlicues of Baroque facades. Once you reach the top of Felice Romani, you have found Bin and Ban; but you will be amazed by the view... More

Thank you Prof, I'm very happy that my guests have so many lovely things to say about staying at Bin e Ban. It is certainly my pleasure to help my new friends get around Genoa and feel at home at my bed and breakfast. Spring is not here yet, but there are signs. I have been working on the terrace... More

Lovely bed and breakfast with an incredible view of Genoa and the Mediteranean, with the Alps in the background. We went in November, so we did not use the wrap around balcony except to take pictures. Breakfast was included, and presented beautifully each morning at our convenience. Five minute walk from the rail and metro station, ten to fifteen minutes... More

We stay there for the Genova Boat show (so hard to get a room during those days). Really great and the breakfast with focaccia and wonderful cappuccino is perfect. It is just hard to get in and also for park the car...Very close from the train station. Grazie Anna!

I spent three days in Genoa for business, and stayed two nights in Bin&Ban. The place is very pleasant, quiet, clean, views from the terrace are terrific and the location is very convenient (not far at all from the city centre, like 10 mns walk, and quite close to the train station, where most buses stop). Anna is a kind... More

I stayed two nights at Bin & Ban and can warmly recommend it. My room was spotlessly clean, so was shared bathroom, probably cleanest I've ever seen. There is only 2-3 guest rooms, so all in all atmosphere is quite peaceful. There is entrance to a big roof terrace from both rooms and also breakfast is served (weather allowing) in... More

Even though it's a little bit on the outskirts it's not too far off. Parking is difficult but seems to be secure in comparison with the center. We didn't like the fact that the rooms seem to belong to the former children. But the host is very friendly and we had one of the better breakfast (remember, we are in... More
