Die Wohnung ist super und zentral gelegen. Sehr ruhig. Mit unseren zwei Kindern haben wir es genossen, dass wir genügend Platz in der Wohnung vorgefunden haben.
Diego hat uns in Empfang genommen und die Wohnung gezeigt. Alles sehr unkompliziert. Auch die Abgabe der Wohnung verlief ohne Probleme.
Chiara war zwar nicht vor Ort, da sie arbeitete, aber jederzeit per SMS erreichbar. Sie antwortete jeweils prompt.
Wunderschöne Unterkunft, zentral gelegen. Wir kommen wieder. Und grosses Dankeschön an die unkomplizierten Gastgeber.
We had a warm welcome as we arrived the apartment. We stayed two nights. We were two families with one small baby. The apartment is very central, clean and comfortable. There were some small toys, books and pens for our baby. It is a very kid- friendly apartment. I would definitely stay here again next time.
Very lovely landlord and her lovely family. Perfect location, 5 minutes walking to the old town shopping area. Really a good choice to stay with Chiara.
We are an Italian couple with a 2 and a half years old child, we have been in this apartment for 23 days and we have appreciated the centrality of the location and the good taste with which the flat was furnished; the apartment was not really clean indeed. One negative aspect was finding parking, Como seems to have too few places to park and none for free. The apartment is in an area closed to traffic and unload and load your luggages is quite challenging if you have many! We are sorry but we have to spend negative words for the host: 1. NO PRECISION AND POOR HELP DURING THE BOOKING (in addition to other information we had asked Chiara if apart from the bathtub there was any shower in the bathroom and the reply we got was positive but in reality there is no shower , as well as there aren't the bikes yhat are mentioned in the description of the flat ). 2. NO WELCOME, NO HOSPITALITY. In three-week stay we never had the pleasure to know Chiara, despite she lived in the same building and we had expressed our need to speak to her in person for other requests. Upon arrival we were handed the keys from a relative, we were been given nor indication or information on the city or on the apartment. Communications with Chiara have always come only through sms, and sometimes they were not so polite, a couple of times our messages were even ignored; anyway we had the right assistance of her husband when we had problems with heating. On check out no one showed up, we had to hide the keys somewhere and warn them by sms. Unfortunately we had the feeling of disturbing when we needed something. Shame not to have been hosted as you hope when you rent a house! Chiara and Filippo ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Io, mio marito e il nostro bimbo di 2 anni e mezzo siamo stati in questo appartamento per 23 gg e ne abbiamo apprezzato la centralità della posizione e il buon gusto con cui è stato arredato. La pulizia un po' superficiale. Purtroppo l'incubo quotidiano è stato trovare il parcheggio perché Como sembra averne troppo pochi e comunque tutti a pagamento. L'appartamento è in ZTL e scaricare e caricare le valigie con la macchina a distanza è piuttosto impegnativo se se ne hanno tante! Ci dispiace però dover spendere parole poco positive per l'host: 1. POCA PRECISIONE E ASSISTENZA IN FASE DI PRENOTAZIONE (avevamo tra le varie cose chiesto se oltre alla vasca fosse presente in bagno anche la doccia e la risposta era stata positiva ma in realtà la doccia nell'appartamento non c'è, così come non ci sono le biciclette che vengono invece rese disponibili nella descrizione). 2. NESSUNA ACCOGLIENZA, MANCANZA DI OSPITALITA. In tre settimane di permanenza non abbiamo mai avuto il piacere di conoscere Chiara, nonostante abitasse nello stesso palazzo ed avessimo espresso questa necessità, anche per poterle parlare di persona...
Dear Chiara and Filippo, some clarification.
1. The apartment is in a limited traffic zone, as is clearly stated in the description and THREE MINUTES by foot from one of the biggest parking in the center;
2. With regard to the precision in the booking stage, I will only point out (AS EMERGE FROM MY RESPONSE RATE 98%) I replied timeliness to every request (also sometimes insistent and not very kind);
3. There is the shower in the apartment as you can find in the description;
4. As for the hospitality, when you came to the apartmente I offered wine and appetizer and I have not received any thank you.
5. Please note and remember, although not included in the price, for kindness I proceeded to change sheets and towels
6. I'm working 13 hours a day and I have two little daughters. It is not always possible to find time for everything. Moreover, if it was really important you could go downstairs and ring the bell, as did my husband for all the times in which it was requested help. But perhaps it is best to keep some excuses to complain ...
7. Fortunately there are other reviews that explain how I am with people who deserve it ...
Cara Chiara e Filippo, qualche precisazione.
1. L'appartamento è in zona a traffico limitato, come è chiaramente indicato nella descrizione e a TRE MINUTI a piedi c'è uno dei parcheggi più grandi del centro;
2. Per quanto riguarda la precisione nella fase di prenotazione mi limito a precisare (COME TRA L'ALTRO EMERGE DAL MIO TASSO DI RISPOSTA 98%) che da parte mia c'è stata risposta e tempestività ad ogni richiesta (a volte anche insistente e non gentile);
3. La doccia c'è come da foto presenti nella descrizione;
4. Per quanto riguarda l'ospitalità, sottolineo che non appena arrivati è stato offerto vino e appetizer e non ho ricevuto nemmeno un grazie. A casa mia non tutto è dovuto.
5. Per quanto riguarda le gestione del soggiorno vi ricordo che pur non essendo compreso nel prezzo, per gentilezza ho provveduto a cambiare lenzuola e asciugamani,
6. Lavoro 13 ore al giorno e ho due figlie molto piccole. Non è sempre possibile trovare il tempo per tutto. Inoltre, se fosse stato veramente importante potevate scendere le scale e suonare il campanello, come ha fatto mio marito per tutte le volte in cui è stato richiesto aiuto. Ma forse però è meglio tenere delle scuse per lamentarsi...
7. Fortunatamente ci sono le altre recensioni che chiariscono come sono io con le persone che se lo meritano...
