  • This establishment is more a traditional b&b than airbnb, a small but perceptible difference. Rooms are clean and well equipped. Bathroom is shared should more than one room be occupied. Breakfast is good. Location close to Genova Brignole station is very convenient (though the particularly sensitive may be troubled by train noise at night). However, rather expensive for what you get (especially with booking fee).

  • Very good B&B, everything as advertised. If you find the price to be good for you, then this is better than a hotel experience. They are experienced and everything runs smoothly and cleanly. A professional place.

    If you really need English spoken, it seems that only Paolo or Francesco speak it, so ask if or when they will be there, as they might not be available exactly when you arrive. Breakfast was great. Francesco went above and beyond when I left my glasses and we coordinated a way for him to mail them to me on our trip. That is why I love the personal experience from a place like this.

    Advice: if arriving at Genoa Principe, the Metro (outside the station) is a great way to get to here, as the Brignole Metro stop (exit back of train) can get you to the door faster than from the front of the Brignole station. Also, having children, was happy to find out that a taxi from the port to here was only 7 Euro and 5 minutes.

  • Paola and her husband were very nice hosts. Essiale B&B is a charming place in a good location close to the center.

  • There is no better recommendation than a returning customer... This was the second time we stayed in Essiale B&B, enjoying Paola's and Francesco's hospitality, delicious breakfast and warm welcome. They were so kind to prepare a picnic for us when leaving to the airport early in the morning, and they introduced us to "panettoncino"! I would again give them five stars in the michelin book of airbnb hosts.

  • Five stars all around! Essiale B&B has a prime location, only fifteen minutes on foot from the old centre of Genua and even closer to Stazione Brignole, very convenient for those visitors arriving by train. Paolo and Francesco provide you with a warm welcome and plenty of advise on sights to see and places to dine. You can follow their restaurant suggestions blindly... especially Gaia. Also, they prepare an amazing breakfast for you as a good start of the day, with real hot chocolat, scrambled eggs and sweet pastries. You feel that Paola and Francesco are experienced travellers themselves and that they enjoy hosting people from all over the world. Essiale B&B is an address to keep in your pocket!

  • Paola's B&B is really great. The rooms are cute, clean and functional.
    Perfect for a couple or two friends.
    The wifi is not so great, but the breakfast is one of the best I ever had !
    Definitely worth it !

  • Great BnB in Genova. It's in a good location and it's very clean. I recommend Paola's place.

    July 2012
  • The B&B was nice and close to the train station, very clean and quiet. I was given a map of the area with key points to visit pointed out. My stay was very comfortable and I would recommend for anyone staying in Genoa

  • Very professional but welcoming and friendly as well. Super easy check-in, great communication with a convenient central location. We drove in and were very intimidated looking at the maps but it was actually very easy to find and really was a great experience.
    The breakfast was a real treat, not just the usual pastries but actual hot food! Great coffee as well!

    May 2012
  • Thoroughly charming house and hosts! I had just a weekend in Genoa, but Paola and Francesco gave me great recommendations to take advantage of the time. The house is very conveniently located to Brignole Station and easily walkable to downtown, the historic city center and port, etc.
