The good stuff: owner is pleasant & friendly & speaks adequate English. The room was very nice: old wood furniture, lots of books. Caveats: shared bathroom (it's a small place so there is only one). To be fair, this is stated in the booking details. Also no credit cards, only cash. But then: the location. With the best will in...

Thanks for your opinion about my B&B. The area is green residential and sea view, considered one of the most beautiful cities. Genova is all up and down, like Lisbona or San Francisco. In my district there are many bar and restaurant: the Pub Alle volte close to B&B in piazza Manin, restaurant Fuori Orario (open till 12 p.m.) in...

Room really clean, host (Manuela) very helpful, even the cat is friendly. Maybe possible, but surely difficult to find for the same price something as good as "Il Ciottolo" so close to the city centre.

It is a simple bus ride to get there, but also only a 15 minute walk to the port front and old town. A warm welcome from Manuela, a good spacious room and large and spotlessly clean (shared) bathroom. Coffee, juice and pastries for breakfast, with toast and jams etc more than enough to get you started for the day....

The owner was really nice and helpful. The rooms are clean. And the bathroom is big and the whole appartement is really comfortable! You're near the center and the sea. It's a very good location to stay for a few days! It was great to stay there!

Il Ciottolo is a great place to stay in beautiful Genova. It's located near the center with a beautiful view over the city and the sea. You can reach it easily by walking or taking the bus from the station. The rooms are big, very clean, bright, quiet, with a very beautiful sealing, furniture and floor. Manuela is such a...

The stay at Il Ciottolo is always a pleasure.... A great host combined with warm, charming rooms located in a fantastic city. Conveniently located, with easy access from both train stations as well as to the central part of Genoa. Highly recommended! AAA+++

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Il Ciottolo is a cool solution for those who do not want to go to an aseptic place, but feel immersed in the warmth of a home. The operators are a young couple that, through travel experiences and long stays abroad, is able to understand the "tourist". The house, an ancient typical genoense one, grit floored, from sea and “creuze” sight will make you feel straight amongst the notes of De Andrè. ... more   less
