I'm glad you enjoyed the stay at my apartment, which is much more spacious and bright than the average apartments that can be rented in Rome, and that in addition to being in a stately building and very quiet, it is also very central and well connected to all the most important monuments of Rome, so as to allow you to visit the city simply by foot.
As for the elevator, it is indeed rare to find very large lifts as almost all the buildings in the center of Rome are historic buildings of 100-150 years and the elevators were added after their construction.
As for the payment of the city tax, I realize that it is necessary to make a clarification.
The city tax is a municipal tax that we collect and we must entirely pay to the Municipality of Rome; the city tax is not present only in Rome, but it is known that it is required in almost all the most important tourist cities in Europe, including Milan, Paris, Berlin, Barcelona and many others.
The city tax is already indicated by Airbnb when booking as an amount not included in the booking cost and to be paid separately; it must normally be paid upon arrival of the guest and is paid in cash because it is not a revenue from the host, but a municipal tax, it is not correct to enter the host's bank account.
In your case, my co-worker Kim, because you said not to have the sum in cash, tried to facilitate you and accepted that you pay at the end of your stay by leaving the money in the apartment
When we entered the apartment after your departure, the city tax money was not found on the counter, where you said you left it at first, not found on the dining table where you later said it was been left by your cousin.
I was the first to enter the apartment and no one else could have taken the city tax money before me: I must therefore imagine that someone forgot to leave the sum.
At this point, because it does not seem appropriate to make an international case and because the amount of city tax that you should have paid, I will have to pay it to the City of Rome, I decided to consider this amount as a special discount made exclusively to you.
Thanks anyway for choosing Veneto Prestige Apartment.
