Thank you very much to Paola and Francesco for being so kind and helpful to me when I stayed at their lovely B&B in October! Everything was comfortable and clean and I was lucky to get a good deal on LateRooms.com. The B&B is in an excellent location - easy to walk to the Brignole train station and the old... More

Located up the hill from the central train station, it is a clean place with simple amenities (however while you do have your own bathroom it is not ensuite). Owners are very helpful and gave a great dinner option in the port area. Breakfast was good - fresh eggs made to order!

Five stars all around! Essiale B&B has a prime location, only fifteen minutes on foot from the old centre of Genua and even closer to Stazione Brignole, very convenient for those visitors arriving by train. Paolo and Francesco provide you with a warm welcome and plenty of advise on sights to see and places to dine. You can follow their... More

Run by a very friendly couple, I found the accommodation spotlessly clean and it was handy having Wifi to plan the rest of my trip. The breakfast was superb, great coffee, lovely eggs and an overall terrific spread to start the day. Given guests have to share a bathroom, I thought the price for one night was expensive.

We spent two nights at Essiale B&B and enjoyed our time. Paola and her husband were very friendly and always helpful. The bed was a little firm, but just how we like it, so no complaints there. Breakfast was more than adequate for us and we were offered eggs every morning as well as the buffet. Its close to the... More

The Essiale bnb is veeery close to the centre, but in a very peaceful zone. The structure has everything you could need, is very well cleaned and it has a good breakfast service, PLUS free wifi! And everything in a ancient-like villa. Paola and her husband are lovely persons <3 You gotta try this place :)

B and B Essiale in Genova is good value and in a great location. The room was clean, (beds a bit tough and shower could use a bit more pressure) and Paola who owns it is a very nice and friendly person. Easy walk to the city and parking only a short walk away. Paola recommended a great little restaurant... More

About 100 metres from the main train tracks. Couldn't leave the window open because of noise and the room was stuffy. Breakfast was adequate. For some reason I felt I was imposing on these people by being there. No real space to sit and relax in the room. I had left my bags for later pick up and when I... More

I went to Genoa for a business trip. I booked a room at Essiale and paid €55.00 to share a bathroom. The situation was very uncomfortable, and squalid and it's not a B & B. It's more like you are sharing a room in a large apartment. I had to leave early because I was really unhappy with the accomodation.... More
