Great room with a private bathroom and personal entrance. The space is so private, that you sometimes feel that you are in your own mini apartment!
We know this is long and we love airbnb! Read it and have a happy time in NYC. Pros: The room is large and the bed is comfy, there is closet space, a desk, and a cool full length mirror. The bathroom is ensuite to the room and is pretty nice. You also have your own entrance and …
Hi! To potential guests: I ask that you please take a look at my other reviews for a more honest assessment of me and my listing. Unfortunately, the way that this review characterizes me feels unfair and unlike most of the experiences that I’ve had with Airbnb guests. So sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy your time in my apartment. What is most disheartening about your review is that most of the things that you described could have been addressed and/or fixed by simply communicating. It is also possible that I forgot something here or there. I know that you and your sister are young girls and the city is new to you, but simply asking for what you want goes a long way. Example: if you thought that I didn’t not provide you with towels, it is possible that you overlooked them. I keep a set in the closet. If I failed to tell you where they are (as I am human and sometimes make this mistake) you could simply ask me and I would tell you where to find them. I do not know why the floors were sticky as I had spent most of the day cleaning when you arrived. I often use a solution on the floor, I also often steam mop. It’s possible that the some of the solution was left behind, or it wasn’t diluted enough. Either way, if you were not happy with my cleaning, you could have mentioned it. As I have health issues that cause intense pain and sometimes put me in bed for a day or two at a time, I may miss something, but if I don’t have the energy to address it, I can always bring in a cleaner. There’s way too much here for me to address right now, but unfortunately, it is clear that you have intentionally exaggerated or even added things that I absolutely know not to be true. It makes me sad to think that you feel that I was talking down to you, this is far from who I am. It is possible that I was in physical pain or addressing some other business matter in a hurry.. I definitely would not ask you to leave, that is absolutely not true. And on that day that you were running late, since I was running errands myself, I do recall saying that I was on my way out the door, and since you guys were getting ready for your day, I probably wouldn’t see you when I got back, so I hope you have a good one! Where did I kick you out in those statements? And asking someone to please make sure that they are cleaning their food out of the sink and emptying the drain is also offensive? Even after I asked, I found myself cleaning the counters, stoves and the sink after you were done cooking. By the way, I was cleaning those areas with paper towels that were already placed in the kitchen, which has ample counter space with only appliances located on 3/4 of that space. I take it as part of renting that I will end up cleaning after people sometimes, but I don’t think it’s wrong to ask you to double check these things. Is it possible that you do not have a lot of experience interacting with people like me, so you wound up taking offense to literally EVERYTHING I said to you? I’m sorry if you felt offended, but I am harmless. I am an introverted New Yorker, that is all. I think what is most upsetting is that the review seems to nitpick every detail and falsely represent lots of things, almost as if the intention is to deter anyone else from renting from me. Unfortunately, it feels malicious, except, since you waited until you were gone to express yourself, I don’t know why. If you were this unhappy, I don’t know why you wouldn’t have looked for a new place. I would have happily offered to contact Airbnb for you, because it is also a matter of comfort for me to have guests who are comfortable around me and you clearly were not. I made myself available to you and said to you that if there was anything you needed, please let me know! I cannot change who I am, I don’t know what made you so unable to speak up (except for in a passive aggressive review, after the fact) but I will try to be more diligent in checking to see what I may need to adjust in the rental in the future. As for the other things that were said, all I can say is that they are false. I think it terrible that you felt motivated to leave a review like this instead of communicating with me, but I wish you well.
