We came for a week in April 2019. We never met the landlady (Luisa), it was Maurizio who greeted us and helped with everything. He was very nice and speaks perfect English. It’s a very small apartment, double bed is psychologically separated from the living room/kitchenette with a glass door which is never closed because space is so limited.
Issues: (1) The apartment is not at all as bright as it looks in the photographs, it’s a little dark, and on street level. There are two opaque glass doors serving as windows (so you don’t want to open them). Sunshine comes in just a little, and only late afternoon. (2) There is no internet (despite what it says in the listing). There is a ridiculous device which provided very poor internet when we arrived. We complained, SIM card in the device was replaced, lasted only a day (we only tried to buy tickets to museums…), we complained again but, in fact, gave up, and did the rest of the week without internet. (3) Kitchen is actually a kitchenette and especially ill-equipped, with badly scratched non-stick cooking pans, no dish rags, no cutting board, no cutting knife, no dish-washing sponge. There are two electric stove tops but using them at the same time blows a fuse. The microwave works well, but again, must be used on its own for the reason mentioned above. We had to do away with the cooking despite high recommendations in the ad for cooking in the apartment. (4) One of the little stools which serve as chairs in the living room/dining area is dangerously shaky and needed to be put together forcefully every time, we stopped using it, obviously. To sum up: no cooking, no internet, uncomfortable dining options – this apartment works best if you come there after a long day and go straight to bed.
Good things: excellent location, beautiful, quiet area. The apartment was clean, the bed firm and comfortable, and in the bathroom, everything worked well, there was plenty of hot water, and everything is new and clean. The apartment was warm (I can’t tell what summer will be like there, since there are no windows to open), and we slept well.
