Unfortunately, the letting company had been the subject of some sort of hacking close to the time we were due to pay our balance and Ireceived an email from the scammer trying to get me to make payment on a website link which seemed genuine. I first contacted trip advisor but it was clear the person I spoke to did not have any understanding of the situation. The real letting agents advised they were aware of a problem. Why then wasn't I told?
On arrival the so-called third bedroom turned out to be a long narrow space at the top of stairs housing a desk and chair with a chair bed only suitable for a small child. The ensuite bathroom was out of action so 5 adults were sharing 1 bathroom having expected the use of 2. The kitchen hob was cracked and we were advised they were awaiting a replacement. On arrival home I sent emails regarding our disappointment with Fulcanelli but the letting company did not even have the courtesy to reply.
On the positive side the location was excellent although some might find the central location rather noisy late into the night. The apartment was fine for a maximum of 2 couples.
My recommendation is subject to certain reservations!
The so called third bedroom does not contain a bed or any furniture and is not suitable (low ceiling) as a bedroom. All our Bed linen and pillows were truly inadequate (the sheets are too small for the beds!) and some bathroom linen was missing.
Kitchen cooktop was broken and the kitchen is so, so small - no room for the storage of plates and glasses and tiny bench space. The advertised photo of the terrace ( up a flight of stairs) shows a terrace table and chairs - not there when we stayed. Only skylights and 2 very small windows in apartment - the apartment is not as it is represented in the advertisement - not good value for money. Redeeming attribute was it is located in the historical centre - great location in the beautiful city of Bologna.
