"lovely apartment shame about the noise"
great apartment, well equipped, clean and well looked after. There are 13 flights of stairs if you don't like lifts, there is a supermarket directly below which is great for shopping but not so great for the noise during the night for deliveries. The main road is very busy all night along with fire engines day and night. All the shops in the complex were closed and so was nearly all of Como. We were told that alot of Italians take their holidays during August if not all of August for some shops. This should be refected in the price and be the cheapest month! The balcony all be it very big does not get the sun very much for any sunbathing, if that is what you are looking for but very nice.
I'm very sorry you seem to be disappointed with your holiday at our apartment as I feel that we did everything possible to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Unfortunately we are unable to control the emergency services or indeed when Italians have Bank holidays, both of which seem to reflect in your review of our apartment. In this instance, and to avoid future disappointment, it may be wise to do a little more research on your destination and the local customs.
With regards the 13 flights of stairs, perhaps it would have been wise to advise in advance that a member of your party had a phobia of lifts. We do advise on the description and in our booking information that the apartment is reached by lift from a secure parking area. Many of our guests find this both convenient and reassuring so I'm sorry that this was also a disappointment.
Finally, in respect of the pricing of our apartment, given you were booking for the main summer period in Italy, this is our most expensive time of the year. Like most of central Europe, Italians take their main holidays in August and therefore our rates reflect this. In reality, if I were to book anywhere in the UK in August, I would expect this to be the most expensive period, in particular over a Bank Holiday. I'm sorry you feel that this was unreasonable.
