Thanks for your feedback.
The check-in procedure was purposely defined like it is to make the guest independent.
In this way the guest can check in at any time of day or night, which is very appreciated by our guests and
it was also useful to your boyfriend too ;)
As you saw when you booked on airbnb, the house has been completely renovated: new kitchen and bathroom, double glazing and mosquito nets: everything new.
Now the Orange room has a sofa bed instead of a bed but still comfortable. As you wrote, this is an economic solution in Rome for this reason too.
Finally we are happy that your boyfriend has found the apartment central and clean :)
