Hi, my name is Rick from China. I am a professional manager for vacation rentals . I like travel ,music,sports etc.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Appartement très bien situé en centre ville
Peu de moyens pour faire la cuisine mais le quartier Musulman, situé à 2 pas pallie à ce manque
Le personnel est serviable et disponible
Very nice apartment building.
This is actually a room inside a hotel inside this apartment building.
Communication was a bit difficult, as Rick seemed to be abroad and the hotel staff couldn't speak english - and we couldn't speak cantonese or mandarin.
Finally, with the remote help of Rick the hotel staff got convinced we already paid for our stay.
Beautiful shower! Internet. Unfortunately partially wet wall with a bit of mould.
Kitchen without any dishes or utensils... hardly useful...
I had to work and my family, husband and parents in law, went to beijing to finally visit the city alone.
They had some problems with Mr. Rick's apartment:
The flexible check-out wasn't really flexible, so pay attention to this detail, my family had to wait at the train staion for 4 hours because of this wrong information.
The images in Mr. Rick's photos are not quite a reproduction of the reality, the apartment is old and badly conservated (my husband took photos to compare).
Besides the two trick issues, the apartment is really in a good location and even for my parents in law, "first timers" in China to go around and to access the subway.
Terrible didn't have any contact who could help us and lost my money
Didn't get a chance to actually stay here. But Rick was nice and honest when we had to cancel he reservation post reservation. He was responsive and easy to communicate with.
The apartment is a great location, but a little old. The air conditioners in the living room and one of the bedrooms were not working which we tried to get fixed on numerous occasions. So I'd just check they are fixed before you make your booking.
Otherwise a great little appt and good location.
perfect geography - close to metro stations, decent, quiet, clean district.
good place for the value, the room was cleaned everyday - fresh towels everyday is a nice thing )) wachine machine with a dryer was also very useful for us who travel with two kids
In general, I have nothing bad to say.
P.S. Keep your telephone charged because a few people speak English, it's better to have contact with Rick who can explain the taxi driver where to take you when you are going to the place from the airport!
Rick asked us to register at the police station upon arrival. (Normally, your host takes care of that, be aware that apparently he isn't able or willing to do that for you.)
Then he cancelled 2 days before the agreed date via e-mail. He has offered a different apartment (more expensive), for which he expected me to pay the difference. As this was 1 day before my departure, I asked him to cancel the apartment officially instead, and I had to book a hotel. He to this day failed to cancel, meaning that I haven't been able to even request a refund.
I'm not the first one he cancelled on last minute, so do not take an "accepted" for granted!
I don't know if he ever got my money but I do know that I haven't gotten it back.
I'm sure there are many reliable hosts in Beijing; unfortunately, he isn't one of them.
I've heard about complaints and stories about apartment in Beijing, and was hoping we got lucky.
Unfortunately, it's not the case. The entire apartment was very dirty (with moulds everywhere). There was not cups and plates available for drinking nor cooking. We found a kettle but it was rusted and could not be used.
The worst was the toilet bowl was clogged the first night we stayed there, and the service person actually blamed us for causing the overflowing and refused to unclog it until we almost started an argument (i mean how much shit can be produced in one night?!)
Anyway, the entire experience was not pleasant and i believe this is not going to be an isolated case ... good luck to all.
Rick was an excellent guest! He is very considerate and nice. He kept our apartment clean and tidy. We are looking forward to his next visit! Thanks!! =]
Rick and his friends were great guests and I look fwd to hosting him again!
Awesome guest (5 Stars!!!) Kept the apartment clean and tidy and super nice all around. Zero Hassle!! I would definitely recommend to all hosts on Airbnb.
Ricky and his friends are nice and friendly. They kept the place clean and neat. I highly recommend Ricky to be the guest and welcome back to stay. :)
Rick is nice and responsible guy! Thanks for booking my apartment.
