“We enjoyed our time in Genua”
Reviewed August 30, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The appartement was seated in the heart of the historical centre of Genua with a lot of squares and restaurants and quite near to the port with an amazing promenade. This was really great. And the renovated appartement in an old palazzo was clean and comfortable and I liked the big picture of the Iris flowers in the bedroom.
Valentina and her husband, our hosts, have been very nice and we enjoyed our short holiday in Genua:)

“Great location and potential, but falls well short”
Reviewed July 27, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

people found this review helpful

The apartment is in a renovated palace in the centre of the tourist district, just a stone’s throw away from the Duomo, Metro, Aquarium and Ferrari Piazza. Hence, it is very central and well located. It is clean, quite spacious and nicely presented. It has a kitchen with a microwave and a hotplate, plus a small functional laundry in the bathroom. Unfortunately, there are some serious deficiencies with the apartment, some of which could be relatively easily addressed. These had a significant negative impact upon our stay, and as a result I would not recommend this apartment to others. Specifically, the following issues were problematic:
1) A sofa bed was provided in lieu of a double bed, but it was too small and very uncomfortable; a proper double bed should be provided. The three single beds were OK, although pillows were next to useless - very thin and poor quality.
2) There is no aircon in the apartment and in the mid-summer heat this made sleeping very difficult; the windows could not be left open at night because of the excessive noise emanating from the adjacent piazza and alleyway (in particular barking dogs, shouting couples and the ear-splitting noise of shop-front metal shutters opening and shutting). A single fan was provided, but this did not work; a fan would be needed for both bedrooms at a minimum.
3) There is no Wifi, which made it very difficult to contact the owner and the outside world to make bookings, perform online check-in etc. We tried to use the free wifi at Ferrari Piazza but this needed an active mobile phone number.
4) The power board has a fault, such that if more than one appliance is used the power trips and everything goes off. This happened at least 6 times during our stay.
5) The hot water cylinder is too small for 4+ people and so the owner has turned the temperature up to maximum to prevent users from running out of hot water. As a result the water is scalding hot and is a serious danger.
6) There is no electric jug or toaster, just an antiquated hotplate. These are basic items, the absence of which is very inconvenient.
7) We were provided with one small bin to serve 4 people for a week, with no arrangements made for removing the rubbish. There were no cleaning materials/equipment provided, but since there was a substantial additional cleaning charge, cleaning is presumably the responsibility of the owner.

“The apartment was not quite accurately advertised”

people found this review helpful

Ca Sanlo was advertised as a two bedroom apartment, and as we were two couples traveling together we expected both bed rooms to be properly equipped. I had contacted the owner via email and requested a double and 2 single beds and stressed the point that there were four of us. However, when we arrived we found that one bedroom contained 3 single beds and the other bedroom contained a couch that had been converted into a bed but definitely was not big enough to be used as a double bed. Also, the bedding on the couch/bed was quite old and worn which is unacceptable.
The apartment is very centrally situated facing a lovely piazza, but as a result, The noise from the cafes on the piazza is constant through the night. We left after five days, feeling completely sleep deprived.

Si è trattato di ospiti poco rispettosi ed educati: ho ricevuto una prenotazione per 3 anzichè per 4 persone ed era programmato e preparato effettivamente per 3. Ho cercato di accontentarli rendendomi disponibile ad ogni loro richiesta, ma evidentemente questa disponibilità non è stata apprezzata.
Hanno creato danni nell'appartamento rompendo il ventilatore della camera da letto, staccando una tenda dalla finestra, spostando un letto da una stanza all'altra senza rimetterlo a posto. Nonostante questo non ho richiesto trattenute sul deposito cauzionale.
L'appartamento mi è stato riconsegnato in condizioni di massimo disordine e sporcizia disseminata in tutti i locali e con una giacenza di spazzatura di 5 giorni.
Sono dispiaciuta dell'accaduto ma di fronte a tante reviews positive con ospiti pienamente soddisfatti voglio considerarla un'eccezione non piacevole!

“Miss”
Reviewed June 4, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We have just returned from a weeks holiday in Genoa, staying at this great apartment.
The apartment is spacious, has everything you need, and is in a very central location. Everything is a short walk away, including the sights, restaurants, cafes and grocery stores.
There is a bit of noise at the weekend in the evening, but it didn't impact on our stay, and you would expect that staying at such a central location. The area felt very safe and everyone we met was so friendly.
We travelled with two young children, one a baby, and everything worked well.
Valentina was very welcoming and all contact we had with her worked perfectly.
We would highly recommend.

“Lovely stay, quiet location, comfortable for children, close to everything!”
Reviewed April 16, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This apartment is lovely, centrally located close to and easy access to everything, in the historic district of Genova, but safe and quiet for families with young children.
The apartment is very clean and the owner-Valentina-was very kind and welcoming. She does not live at the apartment (but is accessible by phone and was punctual arranging keys and breakfast) so we still had privacy.

Close to tourist attractions (historical district, museums, Children's museum, and aquarium), plenty of lovely restaurants, port, seaside walk and a short bus ride to the train station or airport bus.

Lovely apartment and stay, would definitely recommend!

“Great appartment and location”
Reviewed May 4, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed in April at the apartment of Valentina and when arrived she prepared everything for us including a nice welcome snack (foccacia). The location is great in the middle of the center of Genova. Appartment is very clean and spacy.

We had a great time there and you wont be bored with so many things to visit in Genoa.

Its also perfect for families with small kids as Genova has many places to play for kids.

Thank you for everything Valntina.
