We arrived late and left early and so for the one night we stayed, the place was adequate. I was a bit surprised to find that our accommodations—billed as a studio apartment—turned out to be a cramped basement room. The owner made available a refrigerator, hotplate, and laundry sink located across the adjacent basement rooms, but the sparse “kitchen facilities” (dining table not included) don’t allow for easily preparing much more than boiled eggs. More problematic, the insufficient window coverings and vinyl bathroom door detracted from a feeling of privacy and comfort one would expect at this price point. Lacking basic amenities like towel racks, wall pictures, and coffee, we were left to ponder whether the wood paneling represented a contribution to an important but under-appreciated interior design movement. On the upside, we felt the place has huge potential. Linda the host was friendly and helpful, the room was clean and had a comfortable Temperpedic bed, and there were plenty of good quality bath towels to go around. With a few improvements, and a revised listing, this property could work as a cozy room with bath.
