Hotel Balbi is a good B&B hotel with some interesting decor, high ceilings with fresco paintings. Our room was large, clean and comfortable. Be warned - the hotel entrance is on the third floor - there is no lift and those stairs are no joke. If you have heavy bags you will find the stairs to be a real problem....

Very unusual hotel. Limited ammenities. Clean and our room was spacious, facing out onto the Main Street. The ceiling fresco was a delight. Position was ideal, being close to shops, restaurants and railway station.

Close to the station - and a warm welcome. A pity that there is no lift to this second-floor apartment hotel. But once we were in, everything was perfect. And our host laid on an early breakfast - thank you.

We spent one night here while in Genova. The place is easy to find, just a short sprint from the train station. The hotel is located on the second floor in an old charming building. No elevator however! Prompt and friendly staff. The room had high ceilings which made the otherwise plain interior feel quite charming. The best thing with...

We were a group of three friends, and hotel balbi was very nice and comfortable for us. Within walking distance to Genoas harbour and near the train&bus stations. Although Genoa doesn't have much to do at night time, our days were spent happily since we could reach Cinque Terre by bus within 30 minutes max. Would definitely recommend it!
