I really enjoyed my stay. Nice room, clean ensuite and an enormous breakfast served as room service! The only trouble I had was actually finding the place on the first day, so for others: at the front of the train station (you'll be looking at a bus terminal), turn right and head about 250 m up the road. At the second set of traffic lights, on the Astoria Hotel corner (neon sign), turn right and there is a white sign for the Carola about 50m up. So easy once you know!

The staff are really nice, the building is charming and the location is convenient. The facilities are old (the toilet seat kept coming off), the water pressure low and pipes etc. made a lot of noise. But it's a very acceptable low-cost place if that's what you are looking for. It was our second stay and we will come again.

There was not hairdryer, neither the possibility to plug the one that we brought. They should have in each room at least a bigger socket for this kind of equipment.

I completely advise! The staff is very kind! The landlady, Ana, is a very gentle person, give you all the attention and information you need. The atmosphere was so great. Simple, but a quiet and warm place.

Close to Genova Brignole train station, also not far to walk to the center. Neighbourhood is ok. People are friendly. No common room, hard to get in touch with other guests. Single Room is small, but big enough for some nights. It could be hard to find a place which is that good for this small price.

A lovely guesthouse located fairly close to Genoa Brignole train station. I had a hard time getting here, mainly because the train and metro exits on Google Maps were labelled the wrong way around, plus there was a lack of proper signage pointing the directions out of the train station. Nevertheless, the owner was friendly and spoke good English, and the room was comfortable and had its own sink.

Though we only stayed one night. The facilities are basic but they make up for it in cleanliness and hospitality, very good stay in a fantastic location.

Nice 1* hotel with friendly staff, perfect location. BUT BE CAREFUL WITH THE PARKING! The hotel manager told us to park the car in front of the stadium for free, but she forgot to mention that our car gonna be dragged away if there's a football match. We had to pick it up and pay 135 Euro fine for it!

Albergo Carola is a lovely stay with a familiar atmosphere! The hostess is very friendly and cares about her guests. The rooms are very clean, but you should be used to the noise from the train station.

We planned to stay at the Albergo Carola for one night and extended our stay because of a very pleasurable experience and great value for money. The hostel has a slower pace and feels more like a bnb than a hostel. The hosts are very friendly, and the building has great character. If you're looking for a backpackers hostel with a common room, tours, activities and otherwise, look somewhere else. If you're looking for a relaxing and cozy room that is well located and not too noisy, its for you.

A bit hard to find due to the total lack of signs on the streets. Felt more like renting a room in a bigger flat, but the staff was really helpful giving advices on what to see while in Genova. Convenient stay if you have a visit to the football stadium Luigi Ferraris scheduled for your stay. Also close to the minor train station, wherefrom you easily can get a train to the central station (5min).

very kind and helpful staff, we have bien given a map of Genova with lots of useful advices! the room was clean and beautiful ! the station is only 300m away so you may hear the trains during the night but if you explored Genova like it must be done, it won't be a big deal and you will sleep like a baby as i did! the hostel has a very good situation, very close to the historical centre, something like 15mins walking! it was a very pleasant stay and Albergo Carola has something toi do with it!

Albergo Carola is a great deal for the price. The staff is extremely friendly and the rooms were spacious, clean, and had a sink in them. The location is right near the Brignole train station. The only downsides are that there is no AC and the walls are super thin so you hear everything. Also I had a room where the windows opened to the center of the building and there was a lot of noise that echoes around into the room

Stayed in a four-bedded dorm. Lovely lady at the reception. The place looked rather clean, but I rated cleanliness average as two of us were bitten by bed bugs at night. Location, close to the train station (though not the main station where the train arrives at). 20 minutes walk to the town.
