Charming location - functional apartment, but noisy, worn and over-priced
We spent 12 nights in the apartment. The location is the asset of the apartment - it is great- however it's also the greatest liability. The traffic noice from the street is significant and can be heard and felt in the entire apartment pretty much 24/7 (a few quiet hours during the night). The apartment is functional, but rather worn and definitely not as luxurious as the photos show. However, it does have a certain charm. We were surprised to find that there isn't direct access to the terrace from the apartment. It's one floor down and shared with the apartment up stairs. Having said that, the terrace is nice and more spacious than expected. Sharing it wasn't, in our case, an issue at all. The kitchen is lovely, but poorly equipped for cooking even a simple meal at home. Cristina was helpful and reacted immediately when any issues occurred. We have spent several vacations in Cernobbio over the years, in different vacation homes (also in city centre) and compared to the price level/comfort etc. This apartment is in our opinion well over-priced.
