If you have a need to arrive before the stated check-in time, or leave after the check-out time, let me know. I am very flexible but have to have time to prepare the room if there are other guests immediately before or after you.
I do live in the same apartment but have a separate bedroom with its own bathroom, so you will have exclusive use of the bathroom in the hallway during your stay.
If you are new to AirBNB or there are no reviews of you as an AirBNB guest, please have a reasonably complete profile, including (ideally) first and last name, employment info and/or other information to reassure me that you will be a safe and respectful guest. Please don’t message me with web addresses, e-mail addresses or telephone numbers if you wish to contact me, because AirBNB will remove them your message. Thank you!
Included is exclusive use of the hall bathroom.
