“Wonderful little B&B”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

When we first arrived at the address we thought there had been a mistake because there just seemed to be appartment buildings all around. When we eventually found the doorbell and were taken inside, however, the rooms were just as nice as in the pictures. Spacious, clean rooms (there are only two in total) with excellent bathrooms.
The best part, however, are the hosts themselves, who went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible, giving useful tips and preparing a wonderful homemade breakfast on the terrace every morning (with a fresh pie every day if you can finish it!).
So in conclusion, if we ever happen to be in Genoa again, we will surely go there again!

Warm welcome from Stefania and her husband which included a glass of Prosecco with aperitivo. During our short stay, nothing was too much trouble for them. A beautiful room with a comfortable bed so that we had a really good night's sleep. The en-suite bathroom was well-equipped with a large shower, toiletries, gowns and slippers.
Stefania's breakfast on the sunny terrace with home cooked food was truly memorable.
At the end of our stay it was an easy walk to Piazza de Ferrari to catch the Volabus to the airport.
If we come back to Genoa we will definitely stay here again.

Staying at Lercari feels like a home away from home in large part due to the warmth and generosity of the hosts. When we first arrived Stephania spent an hour showing us different places to visit in Genoa, recommending restaurants, and pointing out where to catch buses and trains to visit nearby towns. Even though the owners do not speak English, language is not a barrier for the tourist that speaks no Italian - thank goodness for Google translate!

The room is spacious, clean, and well appointed. You have the option of having breakfast in the garden where Stephania will bring you fresh brewed coffee and wonderful homemade pastries.

The B&B is also in a great location just outside the old city, a few minutes walk from Girabaldi Street.

If we find ourselves back in Genoa, we will definitely stay here again.

We spent 5 nights here and were very happy with our choice. The room was very comfortable with everything you need, including a kettle, and the bathroom as good as a 5 star hotel. It was also quiet, and cool. No air conditioning but it is not needed - and we stayed in July. Breakfast can be eaten outside. Location excellent, on the edge of the old town with buses at the end of the road if you want to go further afield. I have to visit Genoa on business occasionally and will be staying here instead of a hotel next time - much quieter and more comfortable.

This a beautiful B&B In Genova, near (5min walk) from city center. Super friendly host, Sigª. Stefania.
The breakfast was delicious, with typical italian pastry.
I really felt like home!
Inside the room, they provide tea and city maps.
My bathroom has bathtube, very clean and white towels.

B&B Lercari is a great place a few steps away from the old town. We were warmly received by a young family. B&B is a separate part of the apartment, enough place for two or three people, quiet, tastefully furnished and well equipped. Welcome wine and antipasti, homemade cake and focaccias, italian lessons included. We highly recommend this address for all travelers. It is a bit difficult to find, but do not despair, it is worth the effort. It's easier to locate the front door by using the stairs "Scalinata Lercari".

We stayed for one night in early May. Catching a taxi from the Brignole station was 10 euro. We opted to do this as we had no map and were not prepared properly for our visit.  A short walk up some stairs and we found our destination 8b. Up to level 2 on a quaint elevator and we were warmly greeted by Stefania. Our room is gorgeous, clean with a real double bed and a large ensuit. We were served a welcome appretiffe of Vino, olives bread etc, totally unexpected, very grateful. Stefania's English is not the best but she is very patient and once we engaged google translate we were away laughing!  This gracious host showed us the places to visit and recommended a good restaurant close by. Great vist, excellent value for money.
