This review is frustrating for a variety of reasons:
1- the only reason I contacted Cecilia was to get her arrival information to coordinate her check in as well as her checkout. It took repeated attempts to get her to respond by either email or text. I checked in once to confirm she was having a good stay and inquire about her questions. Those are both 100% necessary communications with a guest.
2- the images of my apartment clearly communicate the space. If she looked at those then it is very obvious there is no stairway to the roof deck.
3- in the 5 years I have lived in my building there has never been a cockroach in my bathroom, let alone several. And if that was the case then letting me know would have been appropriate, as I did check in and inquire about their comfort. I frankly do not believe there were bugs in my home.
4- Dust, the bathroom was spotless. What the guest observed was age. Not dirt. I make no claims to my apartment being renovated, new construction or in any way modern., It's charm is its age- if thats not what you're looking for don't rent my apartment.
5-Location. I leave a detailed listing of everywhere you can go in my neighborhood but I also state clearly that it is between many neighborhoods - not one block away. Had she been more attentive to the location of the apartment she rented, which was readily available to her, then perhaps again- she should have rented someplace else that was more central to her interests.
6. Price- Best of luck finding an 800 square foot apartment with an enormous kitchen, large bathroom, large windows in every room, sunlight all day, with a roof deck in downtown Manhattan for $200 per night!
Very glad you had a nice stay. I wish you had let me know about the tub drain- as it was a very easy fix. I leave a small screen in the drain itself, to prevent hair from getting down as the plumbing is sensitive. Therefore the screen needs to be emptied every two showers or so. If you don't empty it the water will not get past. This was the issue you had as when the cleaning lady came she removed a lot of debris from the screen. So I'm sorry you had that issue! But if you had let me know it would have quickly been remedied. Otherwise, I'm sorry it didn't appear clean- I'll let my housekeeper know. The apartment is very old and the bathroom has never been updated so things like the tiles and the plaster show a lot of wear, perhaps this is what you experienced?
Thank you for the feedback and for renting my apartment, come again!
