Such a great neighborhood! It is right next to the temple grounds and the newly renovated downtown. It is always very safe and very clean.
There are Bus lines and a Trax (train) station a block away.
Please respect the home and our neighbor's peace, especially while walking through hallways. If you can, please leave the condo looking as you found it (aside from linen/towels). Also, when you leave, please put the keys back in the lockbox and lock it. Absolutely no smoking (of any kind). Thank you! :)
The best thing this condo has going for it is it's location. The photo says it all. If you're travel plans call for being near Temple Square, this location is hard to beat. That said, it's pretty "basic" housing - and not terribly clean. We found cobwebs in the windows, a dirty refrigerator, dusty blinds, etc. The TV was there - a nice Samsung 32" - but it was only connected to a DVD player - no cable or over-the-air TV. If "live" TV isn't a priority, that's no big deal. Otherwise, you might want to bring a TV antenna with you. We bought one at Walmart for $10.
I tried to reach Jaime in advance twice through AirBnB regarding wifi access and never got an answer. Once there, I reached "Anthony" by text and got the info I needed to access it.
A small sign posted on or near the router would help.
The building is quiet and has several coin-operated washers & dryers in the basement - a feature we didn't use, but would be of value to some travelers.
Other reviewers touted the sandwiches at the nearby convenience store. We didn't try them, but found the store to be pretty under-stocked. There's better "convenience" shopping at a pharmacy on South Temple.
This was our first AirBnB adventure and we'll certainly use it again.
Would we stay at this location again? Certainly, but with a few improvements, it would be a lot better value.
Jamie couldn't have made check in any easier. check in procedure and everything essential to our stay was clearly laid out in the trip itinerary. The neighborhood was quite and there is a grocery store and many restaurant and bars within walking distance.
Much like the picture implies, this apartment is right down the street from Temple Square and you can see the glory of the temple from the living room window. Caught a glint of Moroni himself in the afternoon sunshine. Nothing fancy, but clean enough and comfortable enough for the 3 of us. Towels delivered at night. Especially enjoyed the Ancient Civilizations book.
Leuk appartement, vlotte toegang
Mooie, rustige buurt
Vlak bij het centrum
The condo was exactly as described, and the location was perfect to downtown and The Capitol. The off street parking spot was great to have. There is a couple short flights of stairs to the condo, but they didn't prove too much trouble or getting luggage up or down.
Jaime gave clear instructions and was very helpful with any questions we had.
The neighborhood was safe and clean, couldn't ask for a nicer spot to explore Salt Lake City from. There is a good Laundromat about a 10minute walk east, which was really handy.
Would definitely recommend the Condo to anyone.
The apartment was just what we expected from the listing and worked out well for us. The location is fantastic for walking to temple square, city center shopping, city library, the Leonardo and many restaurants in the central city. It made for a very pleasant stay!
Jaime sent a detailed "house rules" memo, so I knew where everything was. The location is 4-star and accommodations are a great value for the price.
