Mirko and his friend were very welcoming. It was nice of them to prepare things for breakfast every morning. The room is pretty big and the terrasse on the top is a great place. The flat is very well located, in the heart of old town and near to the harbor. You just have to like cats because there are for and like company!
My girlfriend and I stayed at Mirko's place. It was a great experience. The view front the terrace is incredible, and the hospitality we encountered was just what we needed to feel at home in a foreign city. The air conditioning was also a plus in 30+ degree weather.
Mirko home was a fun place to stay. Right in the old part of Genoa. The terrace view from his place was great. They picked us up and gave us suggestions. Fed us some food, all which was fantastic. Very comfortable house and great people.
We really enjoyed our stay at Mirko & Irina. They are very hostile and the apartment is cosy and clean. Very cute cats, a beautiful view and the breakfast made us feel very welcome. Thanks!
Mirko and Irena we're fantastic hosts and very welcoming, despite our complete lack of Italian or knowledge of the city. Mirko came to pick us up from one of piazzas in the old town which was very help as the windy narrow streets were a little tricky to navigate at first.
It was really cool to see a typical apartment in the old town which was full of character. As Mirko explained, it is up lots of quite rickety stairs, but the view from the roof was worth it and it was a lovely spot to have the simple but very welcome breakfast + coffee each morning. Watching the cats do gymnastics on the roof was very entertaining too!
The restaurant recommendation was great too - a really nice simple place, one of the best meals we had in Genoa.
Mirko and Irina was very helpful and friendly to us from arrival till leaving. The accomodation was located in the centre of old town, which was easy to find with mobile map :) The flat was comfortable furbished, the balcony view was fantastico, you can feel the town history around.
Some other good points: big sized bed, air conditioner, wifi.
The cats made our staying even more playful. We had a wonderful time in Genova, thank you.
