Giovanni was very nice and helped me carry my luggage up to the last floor, where he lives. He had left me some coffee and wine. I had to rush out to leave to work, so first I didn't notice how dirty the apartment was, just that it smelled very musty. I stayed the first night away, when I returned next day, I started to see the real state of it...... The shower was full of hair and grime, the toilet, floors and all surfaces covered in filth. The bedding had big holes in it and there was dust everywhere. I could contact him on the third day and told him that. He said that it might be because the cleaner left the balcony door open! He had charged for cleaning, but it was obvious that it was ancient dirt... Giovanni told me then that he would send someone to clean and I should leave my keys at a bar. I was not happy about that, because the bar closes early and I returned very late , plus I had a lot of my stuff around. I asked him as well to refund me some of the money, since he was obviously overcharging me for such accommodation. A dirty flat with a mattress on the floor! € 180 euros a day! I told him that Airbnb is something that is based on trust, and he had obviously lied about cleaning the flat.....and its not good to take advantage of people because of high room demand during the fairs. he said he would give me a refund, " so I wouldn't write a bad review about him" When I left in the morning, the bar where I was supposed to leave the keys was still closed, I had told him I would just leave the keys inside. He was coming later at 12 since he had a new guest coming. Later he wrote to me an angry letter saying that I had left his property open for days.... That he would report me etc... Again, I still believe that the Airbnb system is a wonderful thing, and as I said, it works on absolut trust. I don't think that Giovanni plays a fair game. I took pictures of the state of the apartment and sent them to him... Sadly a bad experience.
I really enjoyed staying in Naviglia. The canal area is fun and bristling with bars and cafés. The flat is quiet and although not luxurious is comfortable. It is very handy for public transport and I was very happy to eat around here at night rather than fashionable Brera. Giovanni is a very nice chap who met me, showed me around and was very helpful indeed. I would highly recommend staying here - but just don't expect the Ritz!
