The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Providence is an awesome place to visit and the house is located in a great spot for both Federal Hill and walking to downtown. The apartment is stylish and has its techie toys (but there is insufficient instruction on how to use all those gadgets, especially the Apple TV and that funky fire frame). However, the host doesn't really have a sense of what "hosting" is all about. I don't need an onsite host, but the basics like toilet paper and two towels for two people are mandatory. I was really disappointed. After multiple attempts to talk with him by text, we finally just gave up. If you're planning to stay here, bring your own towel, extra bedding if you want to use the couch for sleeping, and your own fork (as there was only one in the drawer).
This host came through in a pinch, when another host cancelled last minute. He saved my vacation. The condo clearly has been remodeled very recently; stainless steel appliances, new hardwoods, new bath tile, new furniture, etc. The neighborhood might seem sketchy to those not familiar with Providence, especially the West End, but this is very typical of the city, and not a big deal. The proximity to Federal Hill and all it has to offer more than makes up for that. Everything about the place was great, comfy bed, etc. My only complaint is that the place is in need of maintenance, and some cleaning; there's a broken closet door, and it wasn't thoroughly cleaned before our arrival. Wifi worked great, and the Apple TV was nice to have.
Good location, was awesome that there is a parking spot right outside the place and the bed was comfortable but the place was not ready for us upon arrival. It was really DIRTY. Yes, the host provided new sheets and new towels. The floor was so dirty that we had to clean it twice ourselves and the bathroom was dirty and leftover personal products from the last tenant were not thrown out. We didn't bother to use the living room or the kitchen because we were uncomfortable already. If the place was clean it would be a great!
Location is very central to all areas of the city and easy access to the highway.
Like some of the other reviewers, I felt like this place had great potential but a few changes would have made it even more amazing! On the plus side: great location convenient to many fun things to do in Providence, nice comfortable bed, and plenty of space. Negatives: A/C is not great, so a couple of days were hot, and it wasn't super-clean (but definitely manageable), cooking supplies were adequate but not great if you are planning a longer stay.
Spacious apartment very close to Atwells. If you don't know the area the location could seem sketchy, but that is what all of Providence looks like. It's very safe! Also there was a very friendly cat who guarded the back door for us. My g/f was about to steal him.
Ok experience. No A/C made for very sweaty nights during the heat wave. There was an upright unit, but the windows had no bug screens, so we routed the exhaust to the other room, not very optimal. General neighborhood was somewhat sketchy, graffiti and the like (although graffiti seems to be problem across Providence in general). Closet doors broken.
AC wasn't set-up very well
My experience of this property was that it was adequate. The location is great in proximity to downtown and Brown University. Federal Hill is a great location, lots of cool shops and stores in walking distance. The amenities were nice and updated, but overshadowed by the fact that the property was filthy on arrival. There were ants stomping around until after we cleaned up. The internet hot spot was intermittent so it cannot be used efficiently for the Apple TV and the internet or in more than one room at a time. Some of the pots were rusted beyond safe usability. We boiled water in pans. The closet is detached from the hinges, the ceiling leaked and the portable A/C was missing parts needed for safe (open window) usage. Owner was responsive to most inquires and requests but not at all to those concerning the lack of cleanliness of the property. Clean linen was offered 12 days into our 14 day stay. This place has so much potential and a great location. Someone needs to just pay attention the little details to have this property live up to its adjectives, "LUXURY!"
