The apartment is located in the very heart of Genova, around the corner from piazza Sarzano's metro station, three minutes' walk from piazza De Ferrari and the Porto Antico. The apartment is on the first floor and it's very luminous as it overlooks a little piazza. The area is dotted with coffee shops and great little restaurants, beautiful churches full of masterpieces, museums, typical markets and food shops, bars with inviting dehors where to sip an aperitif before dinner.
The apartment is composed of one bedroom with kingsize bed, living room with a sofa bed. The bathroom has a bath tub with shower. Note: If the sofa bed is used, it's better to close it in the morning to have more space to move around. The kitchen is fully equipped with oven, gas stove top, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, washing machine. Many utensils and small appliances and pots and pans for those who like to cook. If you don't or don't have time, you can order one of the best pizza of the area at the pizzeria right downstairs or try farinata (Genova's specialty, made with garbanzo bean flour) or tasty vegetable tortas (also a few steps from the front door). A few steps in the other direction you can buy for breakfast or snack the best olive oil focaccia in Genova (it's addictive)!
There is no internet access in the apartment but many cafés and stores in the vicinity have free wi-fi. My favorite is Mentelocale in the palazzo Ducale. (There is also a wonderful/affordable buffet restaurant in the palazzo Ducale).
The apartment is conveniently located mid-way between the two main railway stations. Bus lines and two metro stations are close by. The airport is 15 minutes away (euros 6 with Volabus). It's easy to reach the best places of the Ligurian Riviera from Genova (Varazze, Camogli, Sestri Levante, Cinqueterre) as well as Piemonte's wine country. Note about car access and parking: there is no private parking. The apartment is in the center of the historical center so (limited) access to the area is reserved to residents. There are parking garages nearby (piazza Dante and piazza Carignano) but they are rather costly. An alternative is to park the car (for free) a bit more towards the periphery (a good option is near the Staglieno area) and then catch a bus to the center. The train is a more convenient way to travel to Genova (both stations are within walking distance and serviced by metro/bus).
