Amo viaggiare e fare sport all'aperto.
Per me la mia famiglia e miei due magnifici figli sono tutto!
Ho vissuto negli Stati Uniti, in India e ora abito per la maggior parte dell'anno a Cipro
Nous avons passé 2 nuits chez Elena mi avril. L'appartement est très mignon et vraiment très bien situé. Certes, la salle de bain est petite, mais ca ne fait que rajouter du charme a ce studio !
Le wifi gratuit est un point positif en plus !
Et l'hospitalité d'Elena ne s'arrête pas la, puisque qu'elle m'a aidé a trouver un autre logement pour la suite de notre séjour ! Alors encore merci !
This apartment definitely has its quirks, but overall my fiance and I loved our stay in mid-April. It was tidy, had many useful amenities (such as a hair dryer, some consumables in the kitchen, wifi, umbrellas) and you could not ask for a better location in downtown Como. We cooked and ate most of our meals there.
The biggest pitfall was the shower, which has a very low ceiling (we are 5'4 and 5'7 and still had to stoop). However, this cannot be changed by the owners as the building is from the 15th century so it's not affecting the rating.
Some other little things - the wifi dipped out here and there (easily fixed), the bed is on the firm side, there are plenty of outlets and lighting, the area is mostly very quiet, and the decor of rustic collectibles lends interest and coziness to the apartment.
Elena's apartment is in a great part of Como, near the lake and a grocery store. The gas and the water heater in the apartment didn't work upon our arrival. We were without both on our first night. We had to deal with repairmen on two different occasions and the gas was never fixed. That was unfortunate because we were hoping to cook a couple of meals in the apartment to save money. If the gas is fixed, I highly recommend Elena's apartment. We really enjoyed our stay there.
The reservation was canceled 3 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
With a last minute change of plans I am unable to give feedback on the apartment, however the hosts made other arrangements for me. They were amazingly generous and helpful, picking me up at the station, offering me a wonderful meal, free access to wifi and anything I needed at their home. I am sure the advertised apartment would be everything and more they said, and I would definitely recommend staying at their apartment.
Sandy, Adelaide - October 2013
We stayed at Elenas studio for 5 nights in October 2013. We had a wonderfull time there, because we really enjoyed the nice location in the middle of the historic center in Como. Beside the location, the studio offers everything you need including full kitchen equipment, a small but entire bathroom, nice bed, couch, hot water and a well temperatured heater. We would totally recommend this studio for people who appreciate an authentic italien style of living and the central location.
Because of the difficult parking situation in the central we recommend the covered and monitored autosilo where via castlenuovo crosses via palestro which costs 5€/24h.
Wundervolles Erlebnis in Elena's romantischem, kunstvollen Studio. Mit viel Liebe und Geschmack eingerichtet, zentral gelegen, ruhig und stimmungsvoll. Ich würde dort am liebsten leben....
In the best case, go and see yourself before renting...
My solution was having to stay in a hotel for one week then until I fortunately found a truly nice appartment.
I can only suggest to anyone here on airbnb to leave a fair description of what they offer and to at least make sure that the accomodation is in an acceptable situation/condition.
The apartment was very comfortable and its location in the heart of the old city made it a great place to stay. The only drawback was that we couldn't manage to turn on the shower in the bath, which made bathing a bit of a challenge. Overall, a pleasant experience.
My stay at Elena's appartment in Como was the best I could wish for... Everything was taken care of before my arrival (like sheets/keys/etc) and their hospitality was wonderful. I would love to come back some day, in the beautiful city of Como!
