I spent three days in Genoa for business, and stayed two nights in Bin&Ban. The place is very pleasant, quiet, clean, views from the terrace are terrific and the location is very convenient (not far at all from the city centre, like 10 mns walk, and quite close to the train station, where most buses stop). Anna is a kind... More

I stayed two nights at Bin & Ban and can warmly recommend it. My room was spotlessly clean, so was shared bathroom, probably cleanest I've ever seen. There is only 2-3 guest rooms, so all in all atmosphere is quite peaceful. There is entrance to a big roof terrace from both rooms and also breakfast is served (weather allowing) in... More

Even though it's a little bit on the outskirts it's not too far off. Parking is difficult but seems to be secure in comparison with the center. We didn't like the fact that the rooms seem to belong to the former children. But the host is very friendly and we had one of the better breakfast (remember, we are in... More

i stayed at bin & ban for two nights. the location was easy to find, but it's flat number 26 in the building 18. So, don't get frustrated if you can't see any sign of your b&b when you arrive. it is a bit far away from the tourist attractions, but certainly not much, and the streets to walk there... More

Thanks for your kind words, I would love to be able to offer a richer breakfast (as I used to do previously) but now I had to comply with an Italian normative (unfortunately!) that is quite restrictive in terms of manipulation of food that can be offered to B&B guests. I am glad you liked it anyway and enjoyed your... More

We spent 2 nights at the end of January at Bin e Ban B&B. When we arrived I found it a bit weird that the name of the B&B was not on the buzzer and had a brief moment of confusion in finding the place. However, once we got to the pent-house level B&B we were greeted by the wonderful... More

Bin and Ban is unbeatable for the panaromic view you get of the city of Genoa. It is simply unbeatable. Bin and Ban is actually a penthouse apartment of a block sitting just on the outskirts of the ancient city, with two rooms let out to visitors. The rooms are large, clean, comfortable and bright, with access to a large... More
