It took me a long time to find a way to share my experience with Lina because I had mix feelings about it .
To make a long story short ingot to Lina 's place and was told that's wasn't available because of electrical problem .
I was shown to a sad looking and dirty room that had nothing to do with the room I booked on line .
Lina a very stylish girl kept on insisting that there was nothing wrong with the room I was given and that of I wasn't happy I cold fond something else .
I had travelled all day it was 6 pm and I had to make a decision really quickly . I called the airbnb hotline and was told to send them an email with picture to back up my claim which I did.
Lina who doesn't love there left thinking that it was absolutely ok to put a guest in am uncomfortable situation and that she wasn't doing anything wrong . I just smiled and played along since in didn't want to be looking for another place with such short notice .
As it turns out there were no electrical problems with the room I had booked after I investigated and saw that the lights and the air conditioning worked fine .
The apartment is probably inherited and looks like a storage space for Lina to put her stuff in and use to make some money and not really caring or putting too much into it for her tenants . It has a lot of interesting pixels here and there though
The bathrooms are brand new which is the best part of the place the rest is a filthy dump .
The Airbnb community is supposed to be friendly ethical trustworthy and reliable and I am not sure why Lina should be part of it
I am a New Yorker and my resilient character to make the best out of situation .
This experience allowed me look at things differently .
I do not understand why Emmanuel wrote these falsehoods. I think he just did it out of sheer spite. He is an aggressive and unstable person, who speaks about energy and vibrations of objects and moves from one mood to another without an apparent reason. I invite the Airbnb community to be wary of him. Actually, who inhabited the room before him had broken a few things, including the turntable (which no longer had a few pieces) and the air conditioning. When Emmanuel arrived home scared the other guest of the house because he was very aggressive and he slammed the luggage on the floor with violence. The guy called me on the phone scared of him. Fortunally I was in Catania. I had to call the airbnb customer service to ask what to do if this person became aggressive or dangerous. I asked him politely to spend a night in the room Suite Dreams which is not sad at all and that had been cleaned up the morning of his arrival (https://www.airbnb.it/rooms/106236) It has the same features and the same price of the room he booked. He was very nervous and I was scared of him, then I told him that if he didn't like my place I could help him to find another place. One day after (when the technician had checked everything) I told him by text message that he could switch to the room that had booked and where he spent 8 days. At the end of his stay we also send a message to each other saying to meet again in Paris, where we are both living at the time. Be carefull!
Non capisco perché Emmanuel abbia scritto queste falsità. Probabilmente per pura cattiveria. È una persona aggressiva, instabile, che parla di energia e vibrazioni degli oggetti e che passa da un umore all'altro senza una ragione evidente. Invito la comunità di Airbnb a diffidare di lui. In realtà, chi ha abitato la stanza prima di lui mi avevano lasciato alcune cose rotte, compresi il giradischi (che non aveva più alcuni pezzi) e l'aria condizionata. Appena arrivato a casa ha spaventato l'altro ragazzo ospite della casa perché è stato molto aggressivo e ha sbattuto i bagagli per terra con violenza. Il ragazzo mi ha telefonato spaventato. Fortunatamente ero a Catania. Ho dovuto chiamare immediatamente il servizio clienti Airbnb per chiedere cosa fare se Emmanuel fosse diventato pericoloso o aggressivo. Gli ho chiesto gentilmente di passare una notte nella camera Suite Dreams che non è affatto triste e che era stata pulita proprio prima del suo arrivo (https://www.airbnb.it/rooms/106236) La camera ha le stesse dotazioni e lo stesso prezzo di quella prenotata da lui. Il giorno dopo (quando il tecnico ha controllato tutto) gli ho comunicato che poteva tranquillamente passare alla camera che aveva prenotato e dove ha trascorso 8 giorni. Alla fine della sua permanenza mi aveva persino scritto di rivederci a Parigi, dove abitiamo entrambi al momento. Fate attenzione!!!
Lina was very late to meet me and I was let it by one of the other tenants, I never actually met Lina. The apartment is lovely, with everything you would need. It's not quite 'in the heart of Catania' but it's close enough.
