We stayed here 3 nights in early October. Our experience was wonderful and echoes all other rave reviews of Il Borgo di Genova. The location is very convenient, being steps away from the Genova Brignole train station, to explore nearby areas of the Ligurian coast. Also, it is very convenient and walking distance from all the major Genova attractions and...

Alessandra & Giovanni are the perfect hosts for a B&B. The operation is VERY well thought out and carefully run. The B&B is excellently located for enjoying Genova by foot, and for enjoying the countryside by train or bus. Your visit starts even before you arrive when your hosts send you the best, most detailed set of directions I've ever...

The building is located just behind the Brignole Train Station. At the station, you can board the tour bus, so walking is close. There are places to eat in the area. It is a short walk to the center of the city. Giovani & Alessandra are warm, informative and helpful. The room is clean and comfortable. There is a safe...

Can only echo what others have already said. A really good location by Brignole station got us off to a good start. Also very convenient for sites and restaurants. Alessandra & Giovanni were great and attentive hosts. We followed Giovanni's top tips for Genova (he spent ages chatting to us in good English) which were certainly worthwhile. Our room was...

I have stayed quite often in hotels and B&Bs, but I will always remember this one. The decor is just wonderful, simple with an Italian touch. But what stands out the most are the owners - Alessandra and Giovanni. I travel alone mostly and immediately I felt at home and relaxed in their residence. It can be hard to travel...

Great location, quiet and cool room, good shower pressure, and comfy bed. The owners are very friendly and speak good English, and there is free parking available nearby. You can easily reach the city centre via metro from here as well.

Giovanni and Alessandra are delightful, extremely helpful, and run a clean friendly comfortable B&B. It is very close to the Metro which makes getting around Genoa easy. Their suggestions of local restaurants was good. The only caution is that, as they will warn you, the stairs leading up from the entrance to the lowest floor of their house are really...
