Another great stay at one of Hakim's suites! There was a bit of a mixup with the key pick up but other than that, all was good.
I loved the location, the apartment and the pool with the garden and roof top patio. Had a great time . Hakim answered all of my emails all the time and dealt with it right away. I would stay there again !
The pictures are accurate and the building is nice, but I did not feel welcomed. I never met Hakim or even spoke with him - everything was done through some lady (Mirna?). I arrived a bit early and the building manager gave me the keys so I assumed that the room was ready. I opened the door to find the cleaning people still working and they rudely told me that the room was not ready and that it wouldn't be until 4pm. I apologized and told him that I thought it would be ready since they gave me the keys and then he told me that the rooms are never ready until 4pm - as if I were supposed to know this. I felt like I was a child being scolded.
I came back to the room to find a completely stripped bed. No sheets or anything. I found some sheets in the closet - no idea if they were clean or not and had to make the bed myself. I'm not exactly sure what is included in the cleaning, but it would have been nice if they had made the bed.
Other than that - you get access to the gym, pool, and terrace. The TV didn't seem to work and just played music - luckily we didn't spend much time in the apartment so the extra amenities weren't a big deal. This guy owns a bunch of other apartments around the city so it makes sense that the transactions aren't has personable as other airbnbs. If you're looking for a good experience then I'd go with another place, but if you just need a random place to crash then this place is adequate.
I am sorry you did not have a great experience, however I wish you had communicated with me about the bed and the cleaning team, the bed should have been made when you enter the apt , the reason we did not have the chance to meet was that I was out of town, but usually I do not meet guests since you already figures I manage lots of properties so it is sometimes difficult to do so
I apologize again for any inconvenience
Conveniently located in the heart of the city. Hakims communications were very quick.
Terrible experience. Avoid. Host is liar and may cost you $$$.
Unit: Smells like an ashtray. Poor cleaning - I stepped on a glass shard which cut my foot.
Overall: DO NOT RENT HERE.
