Listing was as described. Ann was great to deal with.
I didn't get to meet Ann but did meet her husband, very nice people and everything was ready for me when I got there. He helped me get in to the place with all my luggage and being by myself. The place was great, cozy and exactly as pictured and described. Loved that I had the place to myself and the closeness to the metro. Ann was always available when I needed something, messaging with her was great.
The neighborhood was a little different for me (I'm not a city girl at all), and even more so because I got there late at night on a Friday and was by myself (and the taxi driver told me it wasn't a good neighborhood) and the surroundings looked not too safe (a lot of people walking around and lingering in their cars, it's close to a liquor store so a lot of men just hanging out and about). During the day is really not bad, it's just a residential area and during the week there's not much movement and everyone I encountered was really nice. I just don't know about a woman by herself walking around the neighborhood particularly at night. After my husband arrived everything was fantastic (I felt safer walking to and from the metro). And the metro really is a 5 min walk away, which is really convenient.
Inside of the place was very nice. It was small, but cosy and all amenities were taken care of. Ann was also very quick to respond when I had a question.
However, I was mugged not too far from the apartment. The place itself is nice, it's just located in a really bad neighborhood.
We didn't have a chance to meet her, but everything was very well prepared for us. It was very easy through the check-in process, we didn't have to wait for anything cos days before our arrival, Ann had told us what to do. We had our own space as a studio room, it means 100% privacy. All amenities listed on Airbnb were absolutely accurate. You don't need to bring anything, Ann provides everything for you!! ( loads of towels, soap, shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper, hair dryer, razor, tampon, etc and everything you want for the kitchen.. you couldn't ask for more )
Even though we couldn't find a washer and a dryer in our unit, but once I asked Ann via text, she replied shortly in time and offered to do our laundry. The next day we just left our clothes at the end of the stairs, when we came back at night our clothes were perfectly fold and nicely put in a basket!! It was more than what we expected. The internet connection was perfect, fast and never disconnected. About the neighbourhood, don't judge a book by its cover!! It wasn't look nice, but again people were so friendly and informative. Also from Ann's place, it's only fews minute walk to the metro, and the train takes only 20 mins to the town. We stayed at Ann's place for 3 nights, we felt very comfortable and convenience for everything. Thank you so much Ann :)
If we have a chance, we will definitely stay here again.
Detta var vårt första airbnb boende. Det var mörkt när vi kom och dålig belysning så vi hade svårt att i mörkret öppna nyckelboxen. Värden var inte hemma under hela vistelsen. Vi saknade en informations manual över boendet och tips på tex var närmsta affär fanns. Boendet var rent och fräscht men hade ett mini fönster som inte gick att öppna. Kylskåpets höga ljudnivå höll oss vakna och vi fick stänga av det på (website hidden) och wi fi fungerade bra. Vi skulle inte rekommendera detta boende till våra vänner.
We didn't get to meet her but whenever we messaged her she was quick to respond. Apartment is close to the Minnesota subway station.
We had a great time staying at Ann's place. It's very cozy and perfect for a couple, everything was very clean and just as described. It takes just a couple of minutes to walk to the next metro station, which was very convenient. Ann responded quickly and was very nice (we met her briefly). Thank you Ann!
I'm a flight attendant, and I travel a lot. Travel is my first love. I am a mother of four grown children. I enjoy reading, chatting with friends, and meeting and learning new things from people around the world. It's such a large world and there's so much to learn!
