  • Нормальная бюджетная квартира. Потертость в реальности совсем небольшая, обычно бывает разница гораздо больше.

    Люди, которые обслуживают, хорошие и приветливые, никаких напрягов и доплат. Постель очень хорошая, по утрам слышно, как на Соборной площади тихо бьют колокола.

    С парковкой рядом с домом не было проблем. Рядом круглосуточный магазин. Балкона в квартире нет. Было бы неплохо добавить в набор посуды бокалы и рюмки.

  • The apt. was good ,clean and hot .Only the problem for me is the pressure of the water at the shower was little bit low . And the Central church is very close to apt. so you hear the church bells loudly .But totally its very nice house .

  • I wouldn't recommend this apartment to stay just because the behaviour of the administrator who was rude and insolent. When I arrive to do the check in she was all the time in a hurry and she was disturbed for my questions...Two days before Arik warned me he changed the apartment for another one because there was a problem with the water service so they provide me with a better apartment in a centre location. When she left the apartment after 1 hour there wasn't water at the apartment (yes, it was a problem of the city so all the centre didn't have water but they didn't warn me so I couldn't have a shower or use water till the next day!!!) I contacted with them and their only answer was you won't have water till next day, great!
    The location good, next to the centre, inside of the apartment, new and cozy but the apartment wasn't clean, the building was old, dirty and dangerous, totally dark without any lights in the night...No security...The water pressure at apartment was ridicolous, the crockery to cook was bad and little. I wanted to iron my shirts, I couldn't because the iron was dirty and it was getting dirty my shirts!!The furniture, IKEA, simple and no quality alghouth new, okey, is that a luxurious apartment??The sheets were small and bad quality, no eiderdown...I can continue...I rented an apartment with Arik and his company in Kiev too and I wanted not continue renting with them but I paid it in advance. I had problems in Kiev too, they rented me a luxurious aparment paying 65 euros per night with a jacuzzi but the bathroom had a hot water deposit, impossible to fill with hot water the jacuzzi so why do I want a jacuzzi??The same problem with iron, this one had a security problem with the cable so he told me they were gonna to change but they didn't...I would never recommend to rent any apartment with Arik and his company. They are charging big prices for low quality and they don't care about customers when they have the money...Don't lose your money and your patience with these people, enjoy your trip renting other apartments, there are many or get a hotel!

    Response from Arnold:

    WARNING to all hosts on Airbnb about this nightmarish client.
    In Odessa:

    1. Given apartment rate $ 80 per night for $ 35 as a complimentary upgrade. Evening he checked in, city services disables water in ALL of city center for 1 hour. This unfortunately happens few times a year but is restored quickly. Within an hour, the water was restored. Our manager called city services to find out the issue. When Esau was told that water would be out for one hour, he INSTANTLY demands compensation.

    2. Next late evening, Esau wrote a note saying that an Iron dirtied his shirt and the iron was dirty. This was written at 11pm, so even if this was true (it wasn’t), nothing could be done about at that late hour. Our manager checked the iron the day he checked out and it was perfectly fine.

    3. Esau was so cheap, when arriving by taxi from station; manager observed him in dispute with Taxi driver arguing his fair was 2 UAH (25 US cents – 4km ride). The ride of course was 20 UAH ($2.25) and nobody sane can think ride is 25 US cents. After argument, he agreed to pay the $2.

    4. So cheap, he wrote to us about arrival time, explaining he would call us and let ring twice and explained we MUST NOT pick up the phone, it will cost him money. (Keep in mind local SIM card cost $2 USD).

    In Kiev

    1. Received $120 per night luxury apartment with Jacuzzi, LCD TVs, meters to Ind. Sq for $ 79. Walks in, and literally starts looking for something complain about.

    2. Opens drawers, takes out iron and complains about small rust spot on its bottom. Being offered a new one in morning, he refuses and continues. After I offer to iron my white shirt in front of him to show that it's perfectly fine, he says that if he ruins his shirt or dirties it, I am to pay for it. Proceeds to go to close, take out an iron board and closely looking at it locates a small stain on it. Says that this is unacceptable and that discount is due. The stain is almost not visible on the board, furthermore, it is simply iron water that at some time ago created slight discoloration of the surface material. No effect on any clothes or shirts at all.

    3. Looks behind couches, inside plates, glasses, etc to try to find ANYTHING to complain.

    4. For about 30 minutes of helping him, with washing machine, TV, etc he again demands discount. For what? Not clear but he needs it. Says if discount is not provided, will write bad review.

    5. Insists if discount is not provided he is to receive free late checkout. After being offered it at 2pm (standard 12pm), he tells manager at 2pm that he is not leaving, as compensation should be late evening checkout.

    6. Jacuzzi water – writes a note at night before checkout, there is no hot water (NOT TRUE, but done as tactic – same as previous stay).

    SUMMARY. Esau uses anything to convince any owner that he is owed compensation. If there is nothing wrong at your apartment, he will find it or at the very least make it up. This is clearly a tactic that used. View 150 + reviews on Airbnb saying otherwise. Do not, DO NOT under any circumstances allow this person into your home. We are also placing his name on all of our affiliated and partner agency blacklist to make sure that he never ever stays with us again.

  • Pros:
    - There are 2 rooms with one bed in each (the bed in living room is a convertible sofa).
    - There are all the kitchenware you can possibly need during your stay.
    - The neighbourhood is quite.
    - Bed sheet and towels were provided. They were clean.
    - The house was clean.
    - The location is very central. It is just a minute away from the main street of the city.
    - There is a market across the road. It is open late night.

    Cons:
    - This place is managed by a company. The person I communicated during my stay was not nice. She was rude and showed no interest in being helpful.
    - Beds were not comfortable.
    - The floor is inclined which I found interesting and didn't mind :) The houses in the central part of Odessa are old in general. So, this kind of things might be usual in the neighbourhood.

    Overall:
    It was good value for what I paid. If you don't mind to deal with rude property management, then it is a good place to stay at, especially for a limited budget travel.
