I am offering a room for a friend of mine who is a woman and therefore,she would prefer women or possibly a couple.The location of the apartment is very convenient because it's 10 mins walk to Oktoberfest and 10 mins walk to the main train station.
Free parking on premises
1 night minimum stay
Clearly, Ivo and her companion are very nice people. Kind, attentive and good-natured. However, in my honest opinion, the ad for the room was deceitful. Alas, this has to bias the evaluation of my experience. First, the room is not private. The room consists of a sofa bed in the middle of the living room. What you can't tell from the picture is that it is not a separate room. Then, anyone can walk by at anytime. Of course, the bathroom is also shared with the host. Second, there is no parking included. The parking is on the street anywhere you can find it, so by my definition, it is not included. This had personal consequences (I got a parking ticket from the Munich police but I do not blame my naiveté on the hosts. Though, they poorly recommended me to park just across the street ). On the plus side, it is true that you can use the kitchen and the washing machine, plus the location is good. However, if I knew what I know, I would have chosen elsewhere. I do not think they wrote the ad thinking they would deceive someone, because they are very nice people. I think they honestly have different definitions of privacy.
Response from Ivo:
Hello Jose, I completely agree with you on the privacy part.Since, I don't live in this flat,I completely forgot to mention that there was no door separating the living room from the other (URL HIDDEN) yes, you are right. It's kind of a shared room with a shared bathroom. And concerning the parking, I didn't realise that by ''parking'' it's meant free parking.We will have to re-write the ad...
Meine Frau & Nichte waren zum Oktoberfest in der Wohnung einer Freundin von Ivo für 2 Nächte. Die Lage war perfekt, das Wohnzimmer mit ausklappbarer Schlafcouch war für den Zweck vollkommen ausreichend. Ema war nett, hilfsbereit und alles ganz entspannt. Die Wohnung war sauber und ist nicht nur zum Oktoberfest empfehlenswert, da der Weg in die Innenstadt auch sehr kurz ist!
