I had a very challenging experience, with this being my first airBNB booking.
I was left with no keys after a 24 flight into Sydney at 6.00 am on the day of my arrival. Communication was appalling in regards to this, with excuses all the way!
The apartment was promised with facilities such as wifi which there wasn't. I was here on business and needed wifi immediately. Even emailed the host to request the passcode for wifi prior to arrival and was told, instructions would be there! But there was NO wifi...
I stayed 15 minutes and indicated to the host's father (who became rude and aggressive) that the apartment was not as expected or as portrayed on the airBnB website.
I immediately sought other accommodation in Darling Harbour.
It was 'dark' in atmoshere with scuffed leather sofas and located at the wrong end of the longest street, Castlereagh in Sydney. It was however, clean.
It is a stretch of the imagination to call it spacious and sophisticated!
Sorry, but I would not recommend this apartment as it is.
The apartment is located on Bridge St on the George St end, very close to everything we needed to get to. Although it is noisy (traffic and sirens) having the window shut made it a lot quieter. Wynyard and Circular Quay stations are very close by, as are supermarkets and other shops. We really enjoyed the location, and the room was adequate. We were only there to sleep and eat and it catered to our requirements in that manner. The kitchen was large and had plenty of utensils, and the bed was comfy (although it had only 2 pillows instead of 4 shown in the pictures). We didn't get up to the pool as it was locked both times we tried. If you're looking for places to eat close by I would highly recommend Chophouse and Jamie's Italian (booking recommended).
Excellent location, clean apartment, exactly like in the pictures, and friendly host. WIll certainly come back.
First off, the location is excellent. If you have a need to get anywhere you can walk quite easily to the city, a ferry or a train. From that perspective it was quite good. The room itself is a standard studio with typical amenities, washing machine, dryer, tv etc as well as Yiana was fine and friendly to deal with.
The reservation was canceled 10 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Super tenant ms Yianna, she was very nice and understanding because I was not able to come and do the check-out and she even left the apartment clean and every thing parfect!
Yiana has left the flat very clean and tidy. The communication was good, we recommend Yiana as a host!
Very nice & lovely guests! On time & communication was great :-)
Welcome back again!!
