Interaction with Guests
Andrew and I are very social and enjoying having guests in our little house but we would appreciate if you were respectful to our quite neighborhood. Andrew is a smoker and usually smokes outside the house in the little backyard, so we have no problem with smokers in the house.
Even though the house is close to the city center, it's a really quite neighborhood and if you shouldn't feel like going into the city, why don't you roam the close parks or the green banks of the River Lee?
You reach the main bus and train station within a few minutes walking time. From there you can go pretty much everywhere and explore Ireland's must see places.
Since Andrew is a smoker, we have a little smoking area in the backyard. Feel free to join him any time.
Hanni is very nice, kind, generous, and flexible. The location is also easy to reach Bus Station and city center around 10 mins. It is very convenient to go to other cities or counties in Ireland. Very strong recommendations.
I want to preface this with: I believe Hanni wasn't feeling well during our stay. We arrived at the address and Hanni very quickly showed us through the house and up to the room. She was not friendly, it almost seemed like we were being an inconvenience. On the list of available amenities a washer is listed so we asked if we could do a load of laundry but she said it wasn't available for us to use because she would be doing her own laundry. The parking right outside her place is only open parking from 6pm to 8am so we asked where we could park and she said we could park somewhere else or purchase a parking pass - this alone would have kept me from staying here if I had known. So we weren't able to keep our car parked there and walk around downtown until after 6 and we had to find somewhere else to be until then. Every time we asked her a question we felt like we were being an inconvenience and we couldn't wait to leave as early as we could the morning of our check-out.
I'm sorry you didn't feel welcome and that I didn't answer your questions, but I really wasn't well and quite sick.
Unfortunately, I only have a hanger to dry cloths and it's not heated or anything, so I'm sorry when I told you this that you expected something different and that you would have needed to wash your cloths yourself.
About the parking, yes I forgot to tell you that there's free parting 2 minutes away from the house, but it's also visible on the listing in the map.
Hanni's place was exactly as described and shown in her pictures. She was helpful in providing us directions and recommendations for places to eat while we were briefly in Cork. Hanni was friendly and provided us what we needed for our stay.
This was a great experience. I would gladly return to Hanni's place. The room is small, cozy, and impeccably clean It looks better than in the photo.
I arrived rather late (after 11 PM) and had an important appointment the next morning. Hanni made everything easy, and as soon as I saw her smile I knew everything would be OK.
The location is excellent for central Cork, just a 10 minute walk from town. This place is excellent value if you're looking for something simple. Don't hesitate to book. Thanks Hanni!
Hanni was a very accommodating hostess. The room was accurately described. She opened the whole apartment up to us for use. She also gave us information and a map of Cork to go around with.
