Apartments (via airbnb) or Hotels / B&Bs in Italy

Jump to last reply

We are visting Italy - Florence, Venice, Amalfi coast and Rome in the first 2 weeks of June. We have always stayed in boutique hotels or in B&Bs during our travel. 5 star hotels as and when we have collected enough starwood points! But never in an apartment.
This weekend research resulted in nicely done-up apartments in central parts of the city. Most of them have beautiful photos. Most are cheaper than hotel options in comparable locations.
But having never booked an apartment, I am a bit nervous. It shouldnt happen that we find a not clean place, cmpletely distant from the promise shown on the webpage. Also I cant cook to save my life and wouldnt want to anyway on a holiday. So we wont be making use of the kitchen apart from opening a milk carton perhaps for my 4 year old daughter.

I would appreciate responses from people who have had either good or bad experiences with apatments in italy (specifically in the 3 cities and amalfi coast mentioned above)
