watch for steps....

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is really very nice but...

I would not recommend for elder people or young kids, neather for anyone with walking difficulties. The first picture is showing you the church, not the front of the apartment. The entrance is the 2nd picture. Veeery old, ruined building (like most in the city). This didn t bother us at all. Only after more than 100 mts of steps up from the road and then other 20 mts up of the apartment itself (you can see on the side of the church). From there, it is at least 3 1/2 real levels inside to go up inside the building...Forget about any heavy luggage!

On our second night we arrived late at night and it took half hour to make it in because the lock on the building was not working well. following day one of the neighbours helped us and tought us the little trick about it (would have been great knowing)

Once inside the apartment each room has a different level, sometimes 5 steps, like kitchen, or 3 from one of the rooms; no handrail which makes it risky for the elder or young kids. Good for excercise though!

As the weather is going much warmer lately I would strongly recommend more fans (only 1 small is available) considering there are 2 rooms. No courtains at kitchen area making it really hot. No microwaves. We only found 2 regular glasses available. No coffemaker, but only a tiny individual Italian one.

Dont bring your car to Genova! Even during weekends it is almost impossible to park on the street (though I was told not to worry about it). You can do only coins in the machines (good luck if need to get some).

Some belongings were left at the place and it was hard to hear back from them and still waiting to do arrangements.

Luisa, the owner, was very nice from the begining but I was expecting a better experience. I was a bit desappointed...

OLIVELLA INCANTEVOLE

  • 5 of 5

Sono stata nell'appartamento di Luisa con mia marito e la nostra bimba di 4 anni per tre notti: è davvero molto bello e particolare, situato all'interno di un ex convento del 1200 raggiungibile solo a piedi. La casa è accogliente, arredata con gusto e dotata di ogni confort (dai libri alla musica), la cucina è ben attrezzata.

La posizione è ottima per visitare la città e scoprire il suggestivo quartiere del Carmine. La piazza omonima (pedonale), a pochi minuti dall'appartamento, è una vera risorsa per la presenza di un mercato alimentare, un bar, un ristorante e una panetteria. Li abbiamo provati tutti e siamo rimasti molto soddisfatti.

Luisa ci ha accolto con calore ed è stata molto disponibile.

Appartement de caractère quartier historique

  • 5 of 5

Très bel appartement de caractère dans le quartier historique de Gênes. Quartier typique et calme. Très bien situé à moins de 10 minutes des palais. Idéal pour des visites. Possibilité de se garer en voiture pas loin de l'appartement. Il y a pas de mal de marches à monter avant de se retrouver dans l'appartement mais cela en vaut largement la peine ! Luisa fut une hôte charmante et accueillante. Nous reviendrons sans hésiter !
