Worst Accommodation Experience Ever!!!
Poised on a road where every bus that has ever existed in Italy drives past every day, and the relevant acoustics heard quite clearly in the apartment above; resulted in an experience anything but peaceful.
I could have probably put up with that, if it wasn't for the fact that we were scammed into renting an apartment of which not one solitary photo existed on the Air BnB site! We were under the impression based on the photos and filter applied that this apartment was quite spacious and with 2 bedrooms, good size kitchen etc., the reality was that we got an aged one bedroom apartment where you couldn't swing a cat. The main double bed was raised in the middle so there was a fear of rolling off at any point, and the second single bed was in the shared dining/living/kitchen 1m by 1m space which had a shelf above it; for those special head clanging experiences we all enjoy:)
When to my horror we realised that we had been shafted, I mentioned this to Margherita who responded with if you want to cancel and find another place go ahead... Now, I think you'll agree that this is probably the last thing you want to do, especially considering that there was a festival on and alternate accommodation availability was practically non existent. She even had the audacity to say that we should pay for the WiFi 20 Euro a day, in light of the situation.
Now, normally I wouldn't have any interest in wasting my time with such negative feedback on an accommodation experience, but in this instance I feel an obligation to the rest of you to ensure you don't fall victim to the same terrible experience we were subjected to. I will also be enquiring with Air BnB as to how this slipped through the cracks, as every other experience has been satisfactory or better; this however was the exact situation everyone fears when on the other side of the world. That when you arrive the apartment/house is nothing like you expected in a bad way, and it's too late to do anything about it...
Margherita is a calm, reliable person. The apartment is nice, has everything you need and is one block to the train station. Stayed a month with no complains. Thank you!
i was given a different apartment from what i selected in the name of an upgrade,The check in wasnt that smooth, was ask to pay an extra 30 euro cause i reached late at the apartment inspite of informing of the delay well in advance, there was no parking space or any sort of help from the host, one of the rooms was hardly a room, too cramped up, and decor too vintage, only thing good about this apartment was the location.
This host went out of her way to make sure we had everything that we needed and that she would be available if we needed anything else. She is a very nice person, and her apartment was perfect! If you are visiting Florence, you will love Margherita's apartment!
Margherita was very pleasant and has built a lovely home 100mtrs from the main railway station in Florence. Her apartments are self contained and is rather large and airy given the other standards we had seen in Italy.
Everything from the decor, to check-in, to check-out, bathrooms, airconditioning, house rules were immaculate. We felt like home and wished that we had stayed longer in this wonderful town.
Margherita runs her apartments like a professional but the way she has done it up; will not let you feel that you are living in a professionally managed apartment.
We had one small episode though, of Margherita asking us to pay extra money at the time of check in because we had 1 child accompanying us aged 4.
This was a surprise since I had made that clear since the beginning but on the hind side, i view this as communication gap :)
I wish Margherita continued success on Airbnb and I hope you get to stay at this wonderful home during your vacation.
About the Host, Margherita
Ciao a tutti, sono Margherita, sono una persona a cui piace viaggiare e non appena ho un attimo libero ne approfitto per un viaggetto. Ho il culto dell'ospitalità e ne ho fatto il mio lavoro: mi piace accogliere gli ospiti a Florentia Apartments ed essere di supporto per chi vuole visitare la bella città di Firenze. Sono estroversa, mi interessano molti sport (sci, nuoto, subacquea, vela, ciclismo, equitazione, moto enduro) e le discipline orientali, per la capacità di trovare il proprio centro nella quotidianità
