I chose this apartment because of the rave reviews about Frank. Well, the directions were impossible even for a Chinese speaking person. After a 14 hour flight, looking for an apartment with incorrect address was rather annoying.
Although it's a two bed apartment only one key was provided. We asked Frank for another key and he told us we would have to wait until the second night of a three night stay.
I couldn't sleep at all the first night due to jet lag and a rock hard bed. Then finally I got to sleep on the second afternoon and was awoken by Frank fiddling with the door lock. He was trying to get the new key to work. I got up and opened the door and he introduced himself. Then he told me to go back to sleep and he waited in the room. Very strange but I didn't care and went right back to sleep for a few minutes until my friend came out of the shower and yelled as Frank kind of startled him.
And so began my second night of no sleep.
As I was on the 72 hour visa, it pretty much ruined my visit to what looked to be an interesting city.
Oh, the "kitchen" came without any tools so when my friend complained Frank dropped off a plate, a pan and three or four utensils. Most disappointing air bnb stay yet.
En, I am very sorry for bringing Tim a uncomfortable stay. Here I need to do some explanation:
1. After we made a reservation of a 2 Bed unit on Airbnb, I told him I can give him a better option of Duplex unit but he rejected. So we kept the previous reservation. But when his friend checkin my unit, his friend said that what Tim told him was Duplex unit, that made me confused, it seemed there were some difference between what Tim booked for me and Tim told his friend.
2. To the incorrect address: I sent a map direction and the right address via email to Tim, but Tim 's friend didn' t read that mail, and my direction on Airbnb seemed not correct enough, I would make it more clear in the following.
3. To the extra key, Tim's friend called late at night said that they needed an extra key, so the next day I found the key master to make on more key after gone off work. The new-made key had some problem to open the door at first, so the key master went to deal with the problem and the key works after 20mins' repairing, indeed I stayed in the unit and wait for the master back.
4. To the kitchen, the kitchen is as shown on the pictures, and there is microwave and magnetic oven as the descrption in the board, and the plate, pan and utensil has prepared before Tim's friend arrived, and his friend hasn't complained to me about the kitchen utensil as the facilities has already prepared in the room. Indeed, the kitchen is not an isolated kitchen as it is shown on pictures, but I don't think it is a kitchen "without any tools". In the description I don't say there is cooker, toaster and etc, so please tell me in advenced if you need, I would prepare for my guest.
Good luck to Tim and wish he can have a better experience the next time to Guangzhou, I would improve my service to the following guest.
The flat was conveniently located and reasonably priced, with all amenities functional. We recommend it!
I was sceptical at first using the service of airbnb...always stayed in hotels...to my pleasant surprise..its a great trip...I must say the whole experience is greatly due to an EXCEPTIONAL HOST FRANK ! he came to the airport and met me at 1am because he was worried I do not know how to get to the apartment ...he send me all the way to the apartment, checked everything for me...I was hungry and he even showed to to places I can eat at 3am.
The apartment is as what it was advertised. The location is great if you wish to walk to Beijing road, which is merely a 5mins stroll down the road. It is located at a wholesale area, just a short walk away, there are shops and shops selling Shoes at super great prices. Very soon there is going to be a MTR just infront of the apartment...I would definitely want to stay here again or any aprtment that Frank recommends. I had a Wonderful Trip
