4/5 Good

Extraordinary rental - but some flaws
This is a newly renovated, clean, modern apartment, extremely tastefully decorated with a roomy feel. One cannot find a better unit to rent. The location is very good, too. The owners, Nicoletta and Franco are very nice and helpful in every redpect and made us feel very confortable and at home. However, there are a few less perfect points: 1)The HomeAway/VRBO summary is incorrect (the owners’ description is correct) inasmuch it states the apartment has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The correct information is: 2 bedrooms with queen size beds plus a sofabed in livingroom 1 separate shower, 1 separate WC with vanity and 1 separate WC with vanity and washing machine 2) Franco and Nicoletta speak only Italian. We communicated well using Google Translate and What’s app but I cannot give 5 stars for the communication point. 3) The parking situation is very tough and you need both luck and good parking skills to find a parking spot (we managed, however, to find parking each of the three nights we stayed in the apartment😊) All in all - an exceptional rental that I can strongly recommend

5/5 Excellent

Satisfied tourists
Franco and Nicolette were gracious and warm hosts. Their place is beautiful, clean, and within walking distance to all the action. The neighborhood is a little sketchy at night. Overall I would definitely stay there again. Thank you Franco and Nicolette for your thoughtfulness.
