Virginia was an excellent host, it seems she has thought of it all. She was very responsive with her communication. When we missed a connecting train and had to check in an hour later she was very accommodating to our schedule. She met us at the apartment and gave us a tour, and recommendations for places to eat. The apartment is super cute, just as pictured, and the bed is very comfortable! The kitchen had everything needed to prepare a meal after stocking up at the public market that is located very close to the apartment. The bathroom was also fully stocked with the necessities. The city center is only a short walk from the apartment which was nice. Victoria also went above and beyond when my husband forgot his prescription sunglasses in our rental car. She helped us get them shipped back to the US. I would say she's a super host!
Ottima accoglienza, l'appartamento e' molto carino, dotato di tutti i confort, il quartiere multietnico.
Turin was probably the most stressful part of our big Europe tour only because we had to commit to an exact time to meet her and our GPS stopped working so we got lost finding the neighborhood. I didn't have any specific directions other than the address. We arrived 20 mins late and couldn't get in because the name was different on the call box. When we did get inside much later the place was beautiful, well kept. The neighborhood was not safe though although a walk to open market. I would not stay here again and would do more research on the location. She was very nice though.
Communication with Paula has been difficult from the beginning, since she was answering very slowly. At the beginning she did not even tell me at what time she would arrive in the flat. Then she told me she was coming at 17:00, then she changed the checkin time at 18:00. But then she arrived at 18:45 (so she was more than 20 minutes late) without warning me on the phone. As soon as she wrote me a message in the airbnb mailbox, I went down to pick her up.
Specific directions to the flat and the name on the call box have been provided in the confirmation email. And I am always ready to solve any doubts. I always answer very quickly if a guest ask me about it. But if the guest does not have any doubt about directions etc., I presume the guest has got this information in the confirmation email. I had so many guests and it's the very first time that I have such problem with guest.
It was a very good weekend, we really liked Turin : a beautiful city and a perfect weather! The apartment was perfect : clean, spacious, very nice to live (and for even more than 4 days!). I did not get the chance to meet Virginia but her boyfriend welcomed us and had explained everything we need to know. And Virginia was always reachable by phone and very reactive. I strongly recommend Virginia's apartment when you want to discover Turin!
Siamo una famiglia con un bambino di 7 anni e abbiamo soggiornato 2 notti nell'appartamento di Virginia. L'appartamento è carino, luminoso, spazioso x noi 3 e dotato di ogni comfort. È ancora meglio rispetto alle foto perché il divano è nuovo e comodo. È situato il un quartiere vivace ma silenzioso di notte e a 5 minuti a piedi dal centro storico. Virginia, anche se non l'abbiamo conosciuta personalmente, è gentile e premurosa e non ci ha fatto mancare (website hidden) torneremo sicuramente molto volentieri.
