Thanks for your review, because she gives me a way to improve the apartment.
The city tax is not for the owner of the apartment. The city tax is a tax to the tourist of the Municipality of Rome. We collect from the host and owners must pay to the City of Rome. If you book a hotel in Rome you pay the room rate + tourist tax. You have to pay cash, do not you pay when you book. Final cleaning is due to all the apartments for rent. Some owners make them payable on booking other arrival. I chose to make them pay on arrival, to avoid to you to the other guests the premium that the booking site applies to the whole amount of the stay. All this is fully described in the Rules of the House that you are required to accept before you book. Perhaps you were distracted and did not read the entire description and the rules of the house.
Of this I am sorry. Use of bicycles is free. But we do not force guests to use. You probably are not a cyclist and you gave up the first climb.
However, if one day I decide to go back to my apartment, I will be happy to accommodate you.
