We stayed three weeks at Silvana's Place and liked it very much. The place is just like in the pictures: modest but still you have everything you need. Silvana was really helpful and gave us many good tips.
L'appartement était très agréable et correspondait bien à la description. Il n'est vraiment pas loin du centre ville.
Silvana a très gentille.
Nasz pobyt w mieszkaniu Silvany przeszedł wszelkie oczekiwania. Mieszkanie było bardzo wygodne, ciche, i dobrze ulokowane. Kontakt z gospodarzem nie stwarzał jakichkolwiek problemów. Z wielką chęcią powtórzyłbym ten pobyt.
Lovely little flat in a very nice location. Host was friendly and welcoming. There are early morning church bells that ring out through the town from nearby, but it wasn't too much of a nuisance. The boiler wasn't working when we first got to the flat. We mentioned it to the host and she fixed it quickly, just be sure and check that it's working correctly if you're staying there. The launderette is really close, and there is a supermarket less than a couple of minutes walk away. All in all, was very happy and would recommend staying there.
Pessima esperienza! Disumana comunicazione con Silvana la quale al nostro arrivo ci ha fatto aspettare fuori porta per 4 ore. Arrivati alle 12:20, la stessa non si è degnata di rispondere nemmeno al telefono, richiamando solo due ore dopo sostenendo, con tono spocchioso, che prima non poteva perchè stava lavorando. Silvana aveva previsto un suo chek-in per le 16:00 senza comunicarcelo in tempo, quando sul sito c'è scritto alle 13.00. Alle 16,30 segue un'accoglienza fuggitiva della figlia Elisa che senza nemmeno scusarsi per l'attesa, consegna le chiavi e ci liquida: i profughi vengono accolti con più calore! Veniamo alla casa: portone e corridoio d'ingresso molto puerile e fatiscente con topi giganti che alla sera stazionano davanti al portone.Balconata d'ingresso alla casa a rischio crollo. Appartamento umile, manca la porta della cucina, con ragni giganti in giro per le stanze.Un piccolo bagno angusto senza bidet , con una vecchia vasca scivolosa e scomoda per fare una doccia, assenza di saponi e/o bagno schiuma. Camera da letto con un vecchio materasso scomodissimo per dormire, nessuna bajour per la notte. Wi-fi mal funzionante. Casa caldissima con un unico ventilatore costringendoci a dormire nella stessa camera. ....Non si sono degnati nemmeno di salutarci , nè chiesto dove lasciare le chiavi.
Prima esperienza negativa con airbnb che non fornisce un tel. da contattare in casi di necessita come questo(da chiedere un rimborso). Al contrario di House trip che ti segue passo dopo passo.
We had frequent contact with Silvana who always replied promptly. The photo's match what you get, and luckily an iron and hair dryer were available so we didn't have to bring them. It's about a 10 minute pleasant walk to the centre, with cafe's where you can have your daily caffeine intake.
It was a great stay, wifi worked fine and recommended if you want to stay in a quiet place with not too many frills.
Silvana's apartment was perfect for our week-long stay in Como...within easy walking distance of the old town, near a supermarket and bakery and clean and spacious with plenty of cooking equipment and a comfortable bed. Silvana was very generous with her recommendations of places to visit too...a great experience!
