The kitchen and the bathroom are shared with another private room (not an apartment)
and it’s very clear in the announcement because you booked a room and not an apartment,
and as u can see from the pictures there are 2 private rooms.
My friend told me that showed u how to use everything… but in the moment I wasn’t there I can’t be sure about it.
Probably the previous guest was a smoker ….The check out was at 11:00 and your check in was at 12:00 so
U can understand it takes a little time to bring out the cigarettes smell that was in the common part of the house
and not in your private room.
I’m surprised about of what you are telling regarding the house and the pictures because
a photographer of Airbnb made them in January 2012 to proove the authenticity of the house.
In the moment you are so specific with all the details….. I should like to point out that you stayed at the apartment
with another person in the night without including your guest in the booking and u payed the price for only one person
(maybe I should mention this for all the hosts, because it happens quite often).
