An email assured me that the Blue apartment was avail. for me and my brother in May. At our arrival, it was difficult to find the young woman assigned to meet us. The street numbers are very confusing. Evidently Margherita, the owner, had emailed [too late] that she would be unavailable, and without our Mobal international cell phone we never would have found her agent. Anyway, we were shown to the red apartment which I had earlier seen reviewed as having a bad shower which leaked all over the floor. Our contact knew nothing about the promised blue apartment, and said that it was occupied. We went ahead and moved into the red one, and YES, it was exactly as described earlier. Try mopping up inches of water w/ a few towels left for personal use! A most disgusting waste of time and towels. My brother said that it would be quite easy to seal up the problem around the bathtub, but nothing had been done -- With a decent shower the red apartment would be fine -- close to the train station [around the block], and there is a very pleasant coffee shop 2 doors away at the corner.
