The B&B Quartopiano (which means 4th floor) is a gorgeous B&B in the middle of Genova's narrow streets. Yes, you must climb the stairs up to the 4th floor, but the B&B is at the top floor of a converted palace and well worth the journey. The rooms are very modern complete with a small fridge and jug of cold water. The rooms are also air conditioned with free wifi. The roof deck was great for enjoying a pre-dinner glass of wine with a unique view of the city. The hostess spoke limited English but was able to book restaurants for us (I speak some Italian) - confirming that one of our choices was good and another was not so great so she booked an alternative for us which was excellent. The B&B is in a great location for exploring Genova, however it is IMPOSSIBLE to reach by car. We learned this the hard way driving in circles for almost an hour before parking and reaching the B&B by foot. The hostess can recommend a parking garage at a discount but it is also a little difficult to reach without a map. What I would recommend is parking temporarily and dropping off your baggage. You can then receive a map from the hostess of the parking garage where you can leave your car safely for the duration of your stay. I would agree that the breakfast was average, but it was the end of our 10 day stay in Italy so we weren't too disappointed to only have some toast and yogurt by this point. Had it been my first stop, I may have been let down by the lack of selection.
