We had a very mitigated experience at Gabriele's place.
He was not here to welcome us, and he told us that his sister would do the check in. However, he did not give us her number and she arrived 30-45 minutes late, during which we were waiting on the street with no news from her or Gabriele. I tried to call and text him but he was not available so we kept waiting until Federica arrived. After we finally checked in and confirmed Gabriele that we had arrived, we had no further news from him.
His sister only spoke Italian, which we did not know in advance, so the communication was a little difficult for the check in and the check out. The check in was pretty fast, with no information on the area or the specificities of the appartment.
The place itself is nice and spacious with a cute terrace, but the place clearly was not ready for our arrival. The bed was not made and everything (sheets, towels...) were drying on the terrace. The appartment was not extremely clean, and leftovers were still there on the fridge. A few things were slightly broken or damaged on the appartment but we were not notified at check in.
I believe the apartment is nice and well located, but the absence of the host to welcome us , the fact that the place was not ready nor tidy, and the poor communication really altered our experience.
