Response from Mitra:

I find it regrettable that this is the review being left after a stay.

My communication, which is being critiqued was because I took a whole hour in responding -and I got back to my guest, in this case Kelli, in one hour.

I can not imagine being equally upset after having to ask several times for an exact arrival time, despite a week going by with no answer.

Ms Greenwald stayed for two nights, so one whole day was spent in the flat, and we apologised profusely for the seeming miscommunication which lead to the cleaners not coming in, and they assured us "there were no worries". Our cleaners come in for no more than half an hour, to tidy the place up, and we ask beforehand if during the day is fine, as we find almost all our guests are out during the day.
Daily cleaning is a service we like to give our guests free of charge, so in this case there would have been one instance of cleaning. But as even Ms Greenwald states, the apartment was very clean - because our apartment is cleaned throughly and all items dry-cleaned between turnovers. An attention to detail we appreciate being noticed, at least.

We stocked the apartment with fresh flowers and abundant breakfast - free of charge, as our gift to our guest, and offered to pick them up from the train station - as we always do, and the buzzer with our name on it is listed in block letters.

Now, our house is in the historical centre of Rome, and as such, the houses are over a century old. In our case it also means that the design for the labels of the door are very narrow and small, unfortunately we can not do anything about the size.

I failed to accommodate their request for a last minute tour guide - something I had advised months ahead that it could be difficult to do, that if they wanted a tour it was best to arrange prior to arrival. I was clear in communicating this.

September in Rome is still high season and our guides are booked up - and I will never send a client with just any unknown guide and risk giving them a mediocre experience.

Our apartment holds wifi, laundry, breakfast, they had personal check in and check out, fresh flowers, perfectly cleaned, i left them a guidebook, fully stocked kitchen, but it is regrettable to see that failure to answer within one hour while using airbnbs' system and not direct email results in such a disappointed client. While it is our first time, we sincerely hope it is the last.
