This apt has a good location, it is very clean, nice view but if you open put the window, especially in the evening a bad smell from outside will make you sick. Very poor internet connection and if you need a shower and there are friends or family with you please wait for the water tank to get hot otherwise... More

This apartment is 2 mins walk from Port Antico and less then 10 mins walk to the city centre. Perfect location. Ulrich (host) was great. Kept in contact with us upon our arrival. The apartment is in a fantastic old building. Private parking in the garage opposite. Exposed original brickwork. Quirky. Very large room. Lots of space for a family... More

We arrived late, but the staff was very friendly and waited. He (Ulrich) was very service minded, and sent us information via text message. The rooms are very nice. Breakfast was ok, and with some bread from a nearby bakery it was perfect. Thank you!

Apartment right in front the port, 5 mins walking to downtown. The whole apartment including the bathroom is so clean and the breakfast is allright. Ulrich is so friendly and he helped us to find the place easily despite being a bit complicated getting here. Strongly recommend it

Our family had a great nights sleep and lovely breakfast in a tastefully decorated room. The bathroom with power shower/massage was a lovely bonus after carrying rucksacks! The host was very obliging, sorting out alternative accommodation in their equally wonderful self catering apartment (due to a miscommunication with booking.com). The continental breakfast was sumptuous, great selection of pastries, cakes, cereals,... More

This hotel is ideal for city exploring. It is just in few meters from the Port Antico but hidden in an authentic old quarter. It is the best for tourism, visiting the Acquario and Opera, and enjoying the nightlife in Vicoli. The hotel has, I think, only five rooms. We had a room with a huge window and it was... More

We were looking for a hotel/B&B to stay for one night in Genoa and booked this B&B because of its excellent reviews on tripadvisor. When we reserved the owner was very pleasant and suggested that we should stay in an apartment just opposite of the Acquarium. We only realised our big mistake when we arrived. The apartment is situated on... More

Wonderful hostess, you are feeling like you are arrived to your auntie. Great location in old city near the old port and aquarium and navy museum. Thanks also to Ljuba helped us a lot. There are private parking - important for Genoa. We recommend it for all.

We have just checked in and wow!! We are in the triple room which is huge and spotless. Why would you want to stay anywhere else at 90 euros a night with these facilities?
