Let me cite my period at the "Albergo Diffuso in Cefalu" among the worst hosting in my life, and I am travelling a lot. I rent a small apartment 20squared meter, a small open space with a kitchenette for a price of 135 euro per day, great website and expectancy!
First of all, can you image an apartment without any closet or chest of drawer? There was just an open coat rack and a set of open shelves. I understand the modern design but think to the perfume of your meals on your clothes!
A second effort of imagination, a bathroom with no-window without extractor fun, and more you have to worry if you are not in shape because you cannot fit in the shower (as other guests pointed). The cleaning was not up to the standard and just once every four days.
What really surprise me was the manager behavior at the check-out that, instead of be sorry for the situation, said with disrespectful manner “if you did not like you could leave”. Obviously, we were in the wrong place but with little time and few options to change being in the full summer period.
Working in the field of hospitality, I have a wide experience about the concept of “albergo diffuso”, already present in several areas of Italy, and make me very sorry to see a so bad implementation that can spread a bad reputation on more.More
