My place is close to nightlife, the city center, and parks. You’ll love my place because of the location, the high ceilings.
入住时间为13:00 - 21:00
The flat description was accurate, spacious and the flat is in a great location. Our main issue was communication. Valentina was away for work when we arrived, so before the trip it was difficult to get the exact info we needed to get into the flat. I felt we were annoying her by asking for info like which floor and door in the building the flat was on, since she wouldn't be there herself. It was clear the host was very busy and didn't have much time to deal with us. Because of this, there was also a miscommunication about the check-in day. A week before arrival, I sent Valentina our arrival and departure dates and times. She accidentally mixed them up, so when we arrived, no one was there to let us in. Luckily, I was able to call her as I have a European SIM card, and she did solve the issue quickly, sending someone to let us in within about 20 minutes. Perhaps this can be solved in the future by writing up all important info somewhere that can be copy and pasted into a message for each guest. It was a bit stressful for us to not know exactly how we would get into the flat the night before we arrived, and then receive a bit of attitude when we voiced this concern, especially because we would not have access to the internet on our phones in Italy without wifi. We are all seasoned travelers who have used AirBnB many times before, so I don't think we were being especially needy. That said, besides the communication issues, everything was as expected.
PROS The place was very spacious and comfortable for the 5 of us! The living room and main bedroom are huge! Upon our arrival, Valentina was waiting for us and once in the apartment she explained how to open the windows, use the stove and connect to her wifi network. We appreciated that she had turned on the heater to make the space nice and comfortabke for us. We were provided big towels and there were enough for everyone. There are several small nearby markets where you can do grocery shopping and there are as well nearby places to go and grab a drink. The tramway and several bus stops are right across the street. Communication with Valentina was fast and easy. CONS If you do not like staying in a place which is actually someone´s home, better look somewhere else. The drawers and closets were fully packed with the owner´s clothes and other items so there were no closets or shelves for us to use. We tried using the washer machine but it actually only poured water into the clothes, never started the washing (turning) clycle and left them soaking wet. For hygene purposes, it would be great to provide mattress and pillow covers for all the beds. These can be easilyremoved, washed and changed after each guest´s use. Showering was uncomfortable since there was no shower courtain so you either had to take a shower while being seated inside the tub or make sure to dry out the whole bathroom after taking a shower. Public transportation across the street is quite noisy during nightime, which can make it hard to sleep.
Valentina é gentilissima. Sin da subito é stata molto disponibile e accogliente con i miei due amici francesi. La casa é pulita e grande ma un po' vecchia, e le finestre non son insonorizzate, dunque un po' rumorosa e freddina (quando sono stati i miei amici il riscaldamento centralizzato non era ancora acceso). Se avete un piccolo budget é un'ottima soluzione!!
