Très bonne situation. Attention, appartement pour 2 personnes car petite surface et aucune séparation entre les pièces. Aucune luminosité contrairement aux photos sur le site. Accessibilité au logement très difficile car au moins une quarantaine de marche à monter (enfant + bagages ...). Machine à laver qui fonctionne mais pas de quoi étendre le linge ni de le repasser. Ménage intérieur fortement à revoir et pour l'extérieur, nous n'avons pas pu profiter de la terrasse puisque table et chaise très sales et des fruits pourris sur le sol. Cependant, nous avons eu un dégât des eaux, et Alessandro a très vite réagi et nous a reloger dans un autre appartement.
because of the rain we have had, the outside furniture might have got dirty. I also cant help if fruit falls off the tree during your stay. The line to hang out your washing is outside but you never asked. Also the stairs are mentioned in the description. Thanks, Alex
The Appartement was perfectly located. Less than 5 Minutes to the vatican :) Check in and out was easily. We ha da really good Time!
When we first arrived we were shocked to see the dingy location of the apartment, set way back from the street behind everything in a very unsafe feeling area. When we finally got inside after waiting for a while due to issues with the front door key, we were greeted by a very musty smell and realised that the pictures online were very deceiving. The area was small. We later turned on the shower, which caused the toilet to flood with sewerage water, which filled up the bathroom and into the bedroom very quickly. By now it was midnight and we didn't know what to do. The smell continued to get worse by the minute so we had no choice but to call the host. We then thought it couldn't get worse, but Then we found a scorpion in our bedroom. After trying to explain what was happening, the host was very stubborn and told us to stay there the night, but this was not possible. He then agreed to move us to a 'better' Apartment. He then told us to walk to the apartment; which we were not prepared to do as we had a lot of luggage and did not know the city. By now my boyfriend was getting very frustrated and annoyed. After this, he then told us to catch a taxi at a taxi rank that did not exist, at this time there were no cars around. After deliberation, he agreed to call us a taxi, which he said he would pay for but never payed the full amount, By now it was clear that this was the worst airbnb host/agent we have been with, if we knew this was an agency we would have not booked. Leaving the apartment they moved us into which, we must admit was a million times better than the original apartment, we thought was the end, but he then wrote a terrible review about us, making false accusations and admitting to meeting us; when we never met him. We met his brother. He was also very immature about the situation. We strongly recommend not staying with these people. I cannot fairly rate it as we did not stay in this apartment.
Nice spin on things Emma, unfortunately for you other people can read the other happy reviews guests have left us. This kind of response is expected after i exposed you as the worst tenant we have ever had. As for the apartment being different from the photos, you saw it at 10:30pm when it was dark, as for unsafe....this is just ignorance as its a property located 100m from St Peters Basilica (probably one of the most policed areas I know of) and the musty smell was from the recent change of weather from 15 degrees to 30 degrees C over the space of a few days. The new property obviously was a "million times better" because its a more expensive property per night.
