At first I was a little unsure because the images seems to be new and perhaps it looked too good to be true but I tried my luck and the apartment is as advertised. I stayed for two months and thoroughly enjoyed my time with Enrico, Francesca and Genoa. I would recommend anyone to go.
Non ho avuto purtroppo la possibilità di incontrare Enrico ma non ho avuto difficoltà a trovare l'appartamento e ad effettuare il check in tramite la sua ragazza Francesca.
L'appartamento è davvero ben arredato e con una vista, dal suo piccolo terrazzino, mozzafiato sul porto di Genova.
It was an impressively renovated flat by Enrico, a young architect. It looks a pop interior design mixed with warm Italian traditions. We loved it. Try taking a shower in the morning and you'll experience sparkle of sunshine on your head and body. Even in a winter time, it's very warm and make your stay in Genova more than wonderful. The best moment during our one-week-stay was a small discussion with him about the process of the renovation and his favorite architectures. I think we have experienced another new tradition of Genova thanks to such a talented and friendly host. I hope Enrico and Francesca will come and enjoy staying in Japan someday too!
Giudizio estremamente positivo. Ho ricevuto risposta immediata alla mia richiesta last-minute (per la notte dello stesso giorno), con assoluta disponibilità ed estrema sensibilità da parte di Enrico e Francesca. Sono stato accolto con grande gentilezza. In più l'abitazione di un architetto si riconosce subito! dal gusto originale e raffinato nell'arredamento e dalla comodità 'mise en place'. La location è centralissima ed offre una terrazza con un incantevole e suggestivo squarcio panoramico sul porto. 5 stelle! :)
Response from Enrico:
grazie pepe! :) 5 stelle anche per te! ;)
Very centrally located, right in the heart of the old city and the hubbub of the port. Use your satnav to find it - it's a tiny street but has been there since mediaeval time so you don't need to update! Small but cleverly designed apartment, up eight flights of steep stairs so best if you're fit and have light luggage... Friendly and communicative young host, perfectly OK room, shared bathroom.
What a great place. This apartment is amazing. Like others who have left reviews, I did not meet Enrico in person, but everything went smoothly, and his girlfriend was very helpful in getting me set up in the apartment. I had a great stay and highly recommend this place!
I accidentally booked one room which was not suitable for my family - he showed lot of understanding during cancellation process
I didn't get to meet Enrico as he was away but his lovely girlfriend met me and showed me around. Their apartment is really lovely. it has been beautifully renovated and has lots of cute little windows overlooking the harbour and the city. The room itself is very spacious and the bed very comfortable. It is easily walking distance to the main train station and the centre of the city. Enrico was really helpful giving me directions on the phone. My only caution would be that it's up a lot of stairs so wouldn't be appropriate for anyone who was in any way mobility impaired.
Check in was a bit difficult, but a very nice apartment in a great location. Did not meet Enrico, but he was helpful via mobile.
Great flat, large balcony in a nice city thanks Enrico!!!!
Enrico and his friend were very nice, respectul, and very easy going. I recommand them and will host them again with pleasure.
