Dear Prospective Guests,
Regrettably, I do not know the very strict rules to which Mr Johan refers. He was not subjected to any rules that were not already posted within my listing. The only thing I can think of is that I had to accommodate his later check-in and thus charged him the rescheduling fee that is clearly posted on my listing. As stated in my listing, my life revolves around my 3PM check-in and thus ask prospective guest NOT TO BOOK my home if they cannot make this time. When I must change my schedule to accommodate a check-in (thus forced to do something I have clearly stated I cannot do) this cost me money and damages my reputation in other areas of my life because I cannot be where I am scheduled to be.
As for not being suited for young travelers, I do not know to what he refers. I have earned a positive reputation for offered accommodations to many young professionals doing internships and young women traveling alone, while colleagues from around the world have only allowed their children to travel solo to NYC if they can stay with me. Please know my home is welcoming to people of all ages. I have a special fondness to "look out" for, but not hover over young adults traveling to NYC. Young travelers you are welcome in my home.
Ms Catherine's feedback is well taken. The sheer curtain between the bathroom and the bedroom will be replaced with an opaque divider. The bedroom is 11x15 sq. ft, the bathroom 6x11 sq. ft and the kitchenette alcove 4x6, in NYC this translates to a large bedroom and midsize studio. The room is best for a couple sharing the full size bed or with a third person in comfortable within the shared space in a twin sleeper chair.
