As long as we stayed there everything was all right and he was a very good host.
Problems started, amazingly, after we left.
Even if he wasn't present there to check the apartment he accused us that we left it in terrible condition. I'll be very honest: we left some trash near the bin, IN A SHOPPING BAG not on the floor, because we didn't know where to throw it and we thought that we will help the cleaning by putting it all in the same place near the bin. Again, honestly, we forgot one box of Nutella on the table and one piece of cooking paper in the oven. But from these small things until the way Federico offended us after leaving, it's a very long way.
The maximum time needed for cleaning the apartment after our stay there was 1h. Time for cleaning that could easily be covered by the 30EUR cleaning fee that we paid to Federico in the price.
One evening we parked a car in the interior court because we rented it, came very late (12-1 o'clock in the evening), there was not space in the street and inside there were 3-4 free parking slots. The next morning all the spots were still free, meaning that no one needed them. Anyways, Federico told us that we generated huge discomfort to his neighbours by doing this.
Only later we realised what were his real intentions. He tried to charge us 100EUR extra for the fact that we broke one glass (TOTALLY INVENTED), for the "gift" that he had to buy to the mad neighbour that we upset with the parking slot and for the "horrible condition" we left the apartment. In fact, he was trying to exaggerate everything just to give him another 100EUR.
We were very disappointed by his behaviour, especially by the fact that he didn't hesitate to offend us without even seeing the apartment. He might been misinformed by the cleaning person but, still, we wouldn't recommend anyone to have the same experience like ours. I'm sorry that we didn't take some pictures of the apartment when we left, in order to prove him that he was wrong and did a mistake accusing us.
Federico is a very considerate host with speedy communication. He answered most questions before I even had them and he has a wicked sense of humor. Although he was abroad at the time, he arranged everything to make my stay smooth and easy. The apartment is great and if you enjoy walking, the location is ideal to just set off in any direction. In addition to boutiques there are excellent specialty food stores just around the corner and my absolute favorite is the fruit and veg store at 3 via S. Michele del Carso.
If you will need to use the Internet, then Federico's description that his connection is the best that is available in Italy is absolutely accurate!
The apartment is very quiet so sleep is undisturbed and there are shelves full of iconic photography books for quiet reflection or just inspiration - I wish I had more time to look at them!
Federico was a great host! He answered in a very gentle and efficient way all the questions I had about the flat!! I highly recommend his flat as you can find everything you need for a perfect stay in Milan!! The flat is very pleasant, confortable, silent and very clean. The location is also very nice with all the shops and amenities in walking distance! Thank you Federico!
Great guests although they did arrive a little late . They only stayed one night so we didn't really get to meet them until breakfast . Very nice and pleasant young couple .
Federico was patient with me while I messed up the booking online and failed to confirm properly. When he and his girlfriend arrived I was not able to welcome them and had to leave that to my daughter and a bunch of friends. This was not satisfactory in my mind but I had another priority.
In the morning I had the pleasure of meeting them both and serving a quick breakfast before they headed off. The pleasure was all mine!
Federico and Giovanna stayed in our cottage only for one night but it was enough to realize that they were lovely a lovely couple, very polite, easy going and respectful with everything. The house was spotless when they left and we would have loved to have them stay for longer, knowing that the house was in such good hands! We have no hesitation in recommending them to future hosts.
Buen huesped, limpio, educado y cuidadoso con el apartamento.
It was a pleasure to host Federico and his partner. Federico was reliable honest friendly and polite. The couple left the apartment as it was given to them. Except that they thanked me by leaving a lovely thank you letter and a bottle of wine. I would be happy to host them in the future and I wish everyone to host guests like them.
Federico is a wonderful guest my mom were there during her stay and she said he was friendly and kept the place clean and maintain the atmosphere of the Villa.
although there are several glitches but I am glad that Federico are able to understand our limits and very glad to receive a feedback
we'd love to have you again anytime Federico =)
Frederico was a pleasure to host, he was friendly and easy to communicate with. He stayed in my flat for about three weeks, observed the house rules and left it in perfect order. I would most definitely host him again given the opportunity.
Fedi was a fantastic guest - neat, tidy, friendly and totally low maintenance. (Really more like "no maintenance.") He is a delightful person and I was thrilled to have him stay at my place because I knew he would treat it as if it were his own home, and he did. I had to come by a few times to measure for furniture and he was so gracious to let me do all this - every time I came by the place looked great. Fedi was quick to respond to texts and emails and never asked for anything - even though I was just 5 minutes away. And he was so sweet to leave me a gift of beautiful soaps. Anyone would be lucky to have him stay in their home. I hope you get to meet him!
Federico is a great guest.. Higly recomended.
It was a real pleasure hosting Federico. I gave him some advice on places to visit, and was surprised to find he already had made himself a great plan, so I can say he is a very good traveler and low maintenance. Both he and his lady friend were so nice, and left the apartment very clean. I will gladly host him again in the future.
Federico is a really friendly, outgoing, and interesting person to talk and hang around with. He has lots of different passions, and despite we've never travelled together, I am 100% sure he can be a perfect travel/apt buddy. Just be careful using devices other than Apple ones if you live together... on going Windows sessions can make him a little dangerous.
Federico is a great guy to hang out with - he does know a lot about Milan's nightlife and I'm sure you'll have a great stay with him.
