Given the older great reviews, and the recent poor ones, there must have been a change of management.
Writing negative reviews is not how I like to spend my time on holiday, but there are basic expectations one has when renting an Airbnb apartment. When one is told the assistant will be waiting at the ferry dock with the key, one expects to be greeted and given the key, not wait 45 minutes on the dock for her to arrive. After 36 hours of flying this kind of amateur conduct was not appreciated.
Having read in the reviews a recent complaint about the quality of cleaning, I had emailed the owner in advance about ensuring it was properly cleaned, especially considering the steep cleaning fee that is charged. They never answered. Unprofessional but it got worse...
After such flying one expects to take a shower, not find on arrival at 4:15 p.m., the cleaners have not been there, the prior guests' dirty towels are on the floor, unmade beds. More apologies; this time when the cleaning ladies arrived. So we had to go out, unshaven, still in our travel clothes and come back an hour later.
I wanted to take a bath, but there is no drain plug. So I went to take a shower. That same previous review had commented that the shower had a problem. It does. The bar that holds the head is broken and has to be held together with a piece of string. Bring tools if you plan to stay at this place.
No screens. We stopped counting at 30 mosquitoes. Bring bug spray and a fly swatter.
The place itself is OK, the bed is comfortable, the location is out of the tourist zone. It's the people that are the problem.
When we left, we next stayed in a (URL HIDDEN) place in Balzano. Same price, completely different experience... clean, beautiful, modern, all ready to use, very helpful staff. Live and learn.
