Response from Alex:

This guest was the worst I have ever encountered. Throughout our entire communication she repeatedly asked the most basic of questions, and never listened to any of the answers, so would ask them again and again. We are talking stuff like "how to use the shower?" (you switch it on), and "what is the wifi password?" (guests are given this in many documents plus it is plastered all over the walls in big letters everywhere). She also threw away the contents of my kitchen and freezer which resulted in £200 worth of food being wasted, and she threw away items of furniture. I would not recommend this guest to any users of airbnb, you are in for a very terrible experience.

Response from Alex:

This review is pure fantasy and really quite bizarre. I would invite the reader to read my review of this guest (which was written before I saw his review) which clearly states that these guests were the dirtiest I have ever had. The flat was spotless when they arrived, a professional cleaner had spent more than 2 hours cleaning it, and these guys were very late (without letting us know) which gave us plenty of time for cleaning. We cannot figure out why the guest would completely fabricate a review and try and blame us for the terrible dirty state they left the flat in, with unwashed pots, broken and stolen items, spillages all over the floor, should I go on? Is it possible that these people are so nasty and selfish, that they want to falsify their review to give me a bad reputation, just to save their own reputation? Please avoid these guests. They are very, very bad news - for any host and also this website.

Response from Alex:

Thanks Jurgen! Here's a rough translation in bullet points for non-German speakers....

- We are a family of five with children aged 12 to 16.
- We liked it immediately and we felt from the first moment at home
- We actually liked it so much we extended our stay.
- The apartment is bright and cozy
- the views are stunning
- Shops for daily needs are just around the corner
- You can breakfast in a local cafe and watch the market set up.
- It has public transport such as bus and DLR on the doorstep, plus a bike station
- all well explained in Alex's detailed handbook.
- We were able to park our car very near and for free thanks to Alex's help
- We didn't see Alex during the stay, but he immediately responded to every request and was very helpful
- Normally when you go on holiday, you don't spend much time relaxing indoors and maybe having a little drink - but in this case we loved to do it.
- The insane skyline by day and at night, spectacular sunsets, even rain and storms are not that bad, because you already can see it coming from afar the next weather.
- All in all, we had a great time!

MY NOTE: I have nothing to add to this review really. A note about parking: it is not guaranteed but I will always do my best to make it as easy and as cheap as possible for you. A note about hosting families: As a rule I am shy about accepting families, but as you can see from this review, sometimes it can work out perfectly! So please don't hesitate to get in touch and let's see if the place is suitable for you.

Thanks again Jurgen!
