"If I would purchase the flat in Genoa, I would purchase this one..."

We met the host at the train station and felt like we know him a long time. The way to the flat was not long , but magnificent: statue of Columbus, old Palace, University, Church and we are at home. We came late in the evening and decided to walk for half an hour to see what is nearby of our flat. In 2 minute we were at the old port, big wooden ship, aquarium , in 7 minutes we were at the funicular and saw the whole Genoa in the night - beautiful...
Everything, what you can need, you will find at your new home: nice design of every room ( three bedrooms and sitting room), internet, dishwasher, washing machine, iron, fan, all things to prepare wonderful supper . It is very convenient to have two bathrooms, we were 5 adults, so you must not wait, till everyone has a shower in the same bathroom. What to speak, come and live here...

Thank you for your nice review but must of all thank you for your stay in this new flat. I am happy you enjoyed at best the apartment and the location. Looking forward to having you as a guest. Sincerely, Andrea

"A comfortable and well-located apartment"

Casa Acquario Acqua Marina is a recently renovated 3rd floor apartment near the port and acquarium. It overlooks a small square in the old part of Genova. The location is great for sightseeing - most sights are within walking distance - and it is convenient to the main train station for day trips to Portofino, the Cinque Terre, etc. There are also lots of shops, restaurants, cafes and bars close by. It is a tightly packed and close-knit residential area and several (mainly pedestrian) streets feed into the square, making it a busy, colourful and interesting space.

The apartment itself has been nicely refurbished. It has two comfortable bedrooms and another small room with a fold-down bed. It has two modern bathrooms which, although small, are functional. The apartment has a combined lounge, dining area and kitchenette which is pleasant but somewhat compact and would be cramped for a group. The apartment has all new appliances including a washing machine and a dishwasher. It has internet access and air conditioning.

Unfortunately the apartment block doesn't have an elevator so consider whether you are happy to climb three sets of stairs. Also, the area is old so be prepared for shabby buildings, odd smells and not the cleanest of streets. There is some noise from the nearby restaurants in the square in the evening but it quietens down reasonably early. The apartment is a little dark and doesn't get any sunshine but it is quite airy and pleasant. Overall, we felt the positives out-weighed the negatives and we enjoyed our stay in the apartment . The host Andrea was always very helpful and attentive and was pleasant to deal with.

Dear Helen, I am pleased you like your stay in Genova. Regarding your comments, you have consider Genova is a Medieval city with centuries of history at its back, finding an elevator here is almost impossible - I guess it is not necessary explain the reasons - Regarding the light, again, in a city build by many small alleys, where building are one close to the other - in the last centuries this was a trick to flight against the enemy - one cannot find plenty of sun light and Casa Aquario is actually receiving quite a lot if light to be in the hearth of the old city thanks the two big windows facing in the square. Some noise is normal, we are not in the country side, but as yourself wrote, at a few steps from every where. For sure there is not the cars noise being the flat in a walking area, regarding people talking or every day smells, well, it means the city is lively and to my point if you is more then welcome. Thanks again for your stay. Best, Andrea
