I had a great stay at Anna's charming B&B. It's located in a peaceful and quiet neighborhood within walking distance from the city center. The room and the adjacent bathroom (to be shared with potential other guests) are spotlessly clean and well taken care of. A special feature certainly is the panoramic terrace decorated with flowers and other plants which...

Anna makes you feel at home immediately. She helps you find her place (it is extremely simply -- just above the Brignole railroad station and metro stop), and once you are there, you will be blown away by the terrace and view. Genoa is an unusual city, carved out of several inlets along the Ligurian coast. You will have a...

We had a great stay at Bin e Ban, Anna made us feel very welcome and at home. Excellent home cooked Genoese breakfast to start the day, perfect. Our room opened out on to the roof garden with splendid views of the city. Bin e Ban is in the right place not to close to the city not too far...

Bin and Ban is up the hill from one of the main railway stations in Genoa (Brignole). The neighborhood is beautiful and the road (and internal stairways) are lined with the stuccos and the curlicues of Baroque facades. Once you reach the top of Felice Romani, you have found Bin and Ban; but you will be amazed by the view...

Lovely bed and breakfast with an incredible view of Genoa and the Mediteranean, with the Alps in the background. We went in November, so we did not use the wrap around balcony except to take pictures. Breakfast was included, and presented beautifully each morning at our convenience. Five minute walk from the rail and metro station, ten to fifteen minutes...

We stay there for the Genova Boat show (so hard to get a room during those days). Really great and the breakfast with focaccia and wonderful cappuccino is perfect. It is just hard to get in and also for park the car...Very close from the train station. Grazie Anna!
