The lovely rooms are within the incredible Miramare Hotel building overlooking old Genova and train station. Hosts are considerate and attentive. Lodging requires 20 minute walk uphill from station with lift in building. Genova was a wonderful learning experience even after several earlier trips in Italy.

We unexpectedly needed a night's stay in Genova due to a train strike and contacted Domitilla for two rooms. They were only able to provide one but very kindly arranged a second room for us in the building. Both the owners and their friend who helped out were delightful and kind people who provided exceptional service to us in very comfortable conditions. The building is an amazing former hotel with high ceilings, wide passages, marble stair cases, etc. it is beautiful, and it is conveniently located near the train station (Piazza Principe) and the port. I highly recommend a stay if you are ever in Genova.

Enjoyed the location on the fifth floor of a converted historical hotel building. Excellent position to explore the harbour and old city of Genoa, with great views over the docks and old city skyline. Owners very helpful and looked after us well.

Este bed and breakfast está dentro de un impresionante edificio del siglo 19 cerca de la estación de Principe. El cuarto es espacioso y bonito, la parte común del B&B tiene un balcón con tremenda vista y un jardín muy bonito. Sin embargo, no habiá WIFI!! Importante que sepan que no tienen recepción y que debes coordinar tu legada con los dueños. Tengan en cuenta además que aunque está cerca de la estación de tren, hay que subir una cuesta considerable por aceras muy estrechas. TV todo en italiano.

Premier palais qui s'est offert à notre vue en arrivant à Gênes, sans savoir que ce serait le lieu de notre séjour. Surprise que notre GPS nous y mène, très facilement. Superbe bâtiment, la grande classe ! La chambre, idem ! Espace confortable, déco super soignée, grande qualité de la literie et des sanitaires, vue très agréable sur la ville. Propriétaires très accueillant et qui parlent le français. Petit déjeuner soigné et copieux. Si l'on rajoute la possibilité de parking à l'arrière du bâtiment, la proximité immédiate de la gare, du centre historique et de ses merveilles architecturales, ce B&B est un lieu idéal pour tous ceux qui recherchent une grande qualité d'hébergement avec de grandes facilités pour la découverte de la ville. On pose sa voiture, et on est libre de vaquer au gré de ses possibilités. Tout était parfait.

It was great staying in Genova, just same as hiring nice home with stunning view. The owner couple who are art lover decorate their apartment in greaat taste! Place is VERY clean, you can just wlak around on bare foot. Owner just visit place to offer breakfast and cleaning so you just share the whole apartment with other who booked the other room. If I re-visit Genova, I'll definatley re-book that place and enjoy whole region because now I know what to do for best. It's now just 'usual' B&B', it located on up-hill but once you arrived you will know it worth it! ;)

"Overlooking the city..."
12/14/14 igorvg Moscow, Russia
This B&B is for sure of style and taste, and is hosted by the owners with much attention. Charming and warm room, clean and cosy makes one feel at home. The location is great. Once one of the best European hotels Miramare now its a residential building where the hosts rent their apartments as B&B. the room 1 on the 3d floor overlooks the city and the railway station and has its own restroom. The breakfast is essential, very good. Very close to the center and to the port attractions like Acquario, Porto Vecchio, etc.

"Greatest B & B"
12/02/14 Josefina C Pembroke Pines, Florida, United States
This was a great experience! Not only it is situated inside a beautiful building that used to be a grand hotel long ago but also the apartment is so comfortable, very clean, conveniently located and it has the best hosts you can think of. The view is fantastic from the balcony and it is at walking distance from the Plaza Principe train station, the port and many other amenities. The breakfast is delicious, fresh Italian bread every day and well balance. One of the best things is the hosts' attention to details that makes you feel that you are at home. They even go out of their way to please and help you with any needs you can have: lost baggage at the airport, picking or dropping you off, helping with directions, etc. Really nice people! Thank you again, Cinzia and Pietro!

"So Comfortable!"
05/31/14 Kit V Cool, California
Located in an old palatial hotel (Hotel Miramar) that's been converted to apartments, B&B Domitilla is spacious, clean and really comfortable. Loved the eclectic decor - very tasteful! There are two bedrooms, both with great views and what's really nice is guests have access to the kitchen (I'm not sure about for cooking, but certainly for making tea and coffee), dinning and living rooms. It was particularly nice to sit in the living room and enjoy a glass of wine while enjoying the view out over the harbor and to old Genoa in the evening. This location is less than a half-mile walk from the train station and we walked to old town Genoa (about a mile a way). Loved the eclectic but tasteful decor. The bed and pillow were particularly comfortable, the bathroom spacious and the breakfast was very good. Cinzia was a fabulous hostess! Oh, and the wifi was great too!

"Wonderful stay - Great Owners"
05/20/14 Margaret O Kihei
My traveling lady friend and I left our husbands home and booked a 7 night MSC Mediterranean Cruise leaving from Genoa. We chose B&B Domitilla for two nights. All the Excellent reviews that have been written about this wonderful B&B are accurate and true. The owner, Pietro and his wife Cinzia met us at the Genoa airport and transported us to the B&B, as we did not have a European telephone. I had one problem, my luggage was lost and did not come with me to Genoa. Pietro was wonderful and was in contact with the airport daily to determine if and when my luggage would be found. He went way out of his way to locate my luggage for me. We asked the owners for a dinner recommendation the first night. Reservations for Trattoria Ugo were made for us, also a taxi. The dinner was fabulous, a great recommendation, we enjoyed everything we ordered. The next day, after a wonderful breakfast provided by the owners, we walked to the train station and visited Cinque Terre (Vernazza) by train. As we arrived back in Genoa after dark, we stopped at a nice restaurant near the train station. We felt perfectly safe walking from the train station back up to the B&B. The next morning, check out was at 11:00 am and still with no luggage. Pietro drove us to the port and we checked in to our ship. One hour and a half before the ship departed, we got notification that Pietro was on his way to the ship … my luggage was found!! I must say, I am so appreciative of Pietro’s persistence to find my luggage and to deliver it to me. For all these reasons I highly recommend this B&B.

"A lovely welcoming place to stay in Genoa"
05/15/14 Paul_N189338 London, United Kingdom
I stayed a week at this delightful apartment & would highly recommend it. The owners were both welcoming, charming and helpful. Cinzia, in particular, served simple but delicious breakfasts and she coached me with my Italian, which I have started to learn. My bedroom and bathroom were spotlessly clean and spacious, and the views of the port from the Palace garden were stunning. The apartment was conveniently located for all the main sites and places of interest in Genoa, and for the Principe railway station for day trips, e.g. to picturesque Camogli, and the Cinque Terre villages. The only problem I encountered was with the dodgy lift in the Palace, but hopefully that has been fixed now.

"Nice location let down by horrible host"
04/08/14 Calator77 Bucarest
We arrived in this B&B late in the evening and we were received by Mr. Villata. The room is actually part of an apartment (shared). The apartment is located in a nice palazzo, with view over the Genova port. The whole experience was ruined by a few very important points. First of all, we discovered in the bathroom used towels (IKEA), while the bathroom especially was not very clean. But most of all, we required to the owner (since we were coming from a long tiring trip) not to be disturbed before 09.00 AM next morning. We were told sure, but at 09.00 someone will come to prepare breakfast for us.We agreed and went to sleep. Well, at 8 AM next morning we hard a clashing door, then harsh noises and a feminine voice almost yelling, while speaking to herself... During almost an hour someone (we discovered later that it was a lady, most probably the owner's wife) was using the kitchen appliances making at a same time horrible noise. When the noise was done, a very unfriendly knock on the door and, forced to wake up, I met in the bedroom door a very nervous and impolite lady. She was really shouting at me/us. We realized in between phrases the reason why she was so upset: we dared to leave our jackets on the kitchen stools, instead of taking it into our bedroom! Most of all, she literally said "you made a mess into my house!" Then (I was still hoping it is just a bad dream) we were told that we must hurry and leave before 11.00 AM, and "it is already late!". Again, it was 9 AM in the morning... The so called "mess" ? Indeed, our jackets from the open kitchen-living room, left on the stools... We were the only ones in their apartment. The lady was almost hysterical, impolite, completely unfriendly and made us feel unwelcomed into "her home". Clearly, the concept of hospitality is completely unfamiliar to this person. We eat the breakfast, anyhow poor, hoping that what just happened was not for real. This lady left, but we were already determined to leave this very very unpleasant place. When she come back, some time later, for the check out and when we expressed to her our perplexity regarding her behaviour, she just looked at us like she did not know what we were talking about! She did not say nothing, but we felt even more perplex and frustrated by her attitude. All in all, it was the worst hotel/B&B experience ever. We do not understand why such persons are working in the hospitality business. The name says it very clear: HOSPITALITY. Pro: nice view over the port. Walking distance to the port (10-15 minutes walk) Cons: Horrible lady-host. Cleanliness of the bathroom: so-so. Very poor breakfast. Small bedroom.

"A view from a Palace"
04/05/14 VencieCarnival Scottsdale, Arizona
A beautiful little hotel/apartment inside of a small wing of a Palace looking over the Port of Genoa. Nice and quiet, nice bedroom, good internet, and nice people that run it. There are two bedrooms in the small apartment hotel inside of a old Palace. It is a hike to get up to it and about 20 minutes to walk down to the Port with all the activities but worth it. Exercise is good with all the good food and wine there is to eat and drink. Not for people who are not use to walking but I am. Had to connect with the people but they are super nice and very helpful. Just 10 minutes from train station and one hell of a view on the terrace looking over the port. Awesome.

I highly recommend Domitilla as a place to stay in Genoa. In addition to being run by a very pleasant and accommodating couple, the location is excellent for visiting the sites of Genoa and it is excellent value for money. I stayed in a nicely appointed apartment with an excellent view of the harbour. It is a bit complicated to the get there but the owners set detailed instructions. If and when I return to Genoa, I would definitely book a room at Domitilla.

"A Real Gem"
01/20/14 grivola Ottawa, Canada
This is a really amazing B&B. There are two apartments in the building owned and operated by a couple who used to live in the upstairs apartment. One on the 5th floor and the other on a lower floor. We stayed on the 5th floor, a corner apartment with great views of the harbour, city and railway station several stories below. There are two bedrooms each with their own bathroom in the hallway, as well as an open kitchen, dining and living room area. The gas for the stove has been turned off but the fridge and dishes are there to use. A wrap around balcony affords the best views however there's a garden terrace below when the weather is good. The place was very bright, clean and comfortable, and easy to regulate the room temperature. Breakfast was continental style but plentiful with enough bread, pastry, cold cuts, cheeses, yogurt, juice and coffee to get you going. Our hostess and her sister were very friendly and could speak English if required. There's private and secure parking behind the building. Wifi and flat screen TV's. Fee was 80 Euros plus an additional 10 for parking each night. The city streets are impossible for parking and we noticed several parked cars with their windows smashed in. Better to pay the extra 10 in my view. There is s small grocery store called "Gulliver" next to the front door with a butcher counter, dairy, fresh fruit and vegetables, beer and wine among many other things if you prefer a night in.

"A beautiful surprise"
12/29/13 RAYM64 Melbourne, Australia
We have stayed in Genova several times always at hotels and generally close to the Piazza Principe train station for easy access to trains and airport bus and close to the cruise terminal. This time we decide to stay at the B & B Domitilla for the 4 days of our visit and so glad we did. It covered our need to be close to the station and turned out to be far better value than the more expensive hotels in Genova. The building is a bit of a palace really, with beautiful high ceilings and marble floors and columns and perched high above the port of Genova. Our hosts Pietro and Cynthia operate a handful of the large apartments in the building. Our room had a seaside view so we could watch the boats coming in and out of the port and also take in the beauty of the buildings in a 180 degrees panorama rising above the sea from our bedroom and dining room balconies. Our double room was tastefully decorated as was the kitchen and dining area. We were worried about the fact that the bathroom was outside our room but it was actually alongside and we could negotiate the shortest of distance in complete privacy. The lovely Cynthia prepared our adequate breakfast each morning and looked after the servicing of the apartment with absolute minimum disturbance. Highly recommended.
