We have been living in this apartment for 1 month. Photos of the flat are too nice at site, in real life it is very old and dirty. There are some things which MUST BE and WORK when the owner rent her flat to people. HERE THEY ARE: In first day when we moved to it ,of course we didn t notice that , but next day, we went to shop and bought lots of food and put it to the fridge, we found out that the FRIDGE DOESN T WORK ( it was too warm inside) we informed the owner but unfortunately we had to be living to the end of our vacation with the BROKEN FRIDGE.
WASHING MACHINE DOESN T WORK AT ALL also , maybe because it is too old and must be thrown away and the owner need to buy a new one.
ALL WARDROBES ARE UNDER LOCK AND KEY. The owner keeps there her own things so be ready that you will have no space where to put your things.
THERE IS NO CONDITIONER in the flat , in summer it is very hot inside even with open windows. The bedroom are without windows so it is the hottest place in the flat, when you open the skylight it doesn t help at all.
THERE ARE ONLY 3 TOWELS NOT FREST AT ALL and it doesn t mean how much people will live in the flat , anyway you will have only 3 SMALL not new TOWELS. We were 2 persons, and 3 small towels is not enought at all ,because in fact you have only 2 towels as 1 is for the floor( small one).
KITCHEN ARE VERY POOR for cooking . It is not possible to use frying pans, they are too old and you only spoil food using them.
BED SHEETS ARE ALSO POOR there are only 2 and not fresh also.
THERE IS A HUGE PROBLEM THERE WITH ELECTRICAL OUTLETS if you want to use them then take adapter
CURTAINS on the kitchen are very dirty, it seems to me that they werent be washed for min 5 years ,so better not touch them as much dust will fly in the air
TOO MUCH NOISE from outside.
AT SITE IS WRITTEN " Professional Cleaning (performed immediately before and after each guest stay)" when we moved to the flat the owner told us " when you leave the flat you must clean it for next guests because the same did people who lived her before you" THAT is called "Professional Cleaning" . So, you pay money and then need to clean to receive your deposit back.
Now we understand why THE PRICE FOR THIS FLAT is so CHEAP comparing with other apartments in Como. So if now working thing and dirty and old towels and poor kitchen is not problem for you , you can stay here.
Location is convenient for the area. improper scratched pots and dingy old towels should be replaced as previous reviewers have stated. More substantial drapery would buffer some of the very loud street noise and provide privacy
Very cute apartment, enjoyed 3 nights there. It was convenient to everything, 4 minutes to Duomo, 5 minutes to waterfront and ferries. Some good restaurants within 5 minute walk as well as good shopping. Everything was clean and looks exactly as presented.
The thing I really missed was an iron & ironing board and bath towels as we know them in USA (large and fluffy).
As a recommendation to the owners it would have been helpful to have the name and directions for a grocery store, some nice restaurants etc. So it wasn't such a search the first day. I would recommend Osteria L'Angolo del Silenzio, just outside the walls at Viale Lecco 25. (Don't let the outside fool you).
Groceries can be purchased at Coin and the best bread and pastry at Bereta (there are a few of them).
Great time, can't wait to come back again.
My husband and I spent a week at this apt in Sept. and found it to be comfortable and conveniently located in Como. The renovation was done with good detail. The apt is not equipped well for cooking, but we had planned on eating out each night, so that wasn't a problem for us. All in all, a lovely place to stay.
