Hi Burgi, I'm sorry if you didn't like your experience. This is the first bad review I received on my profile and I'm a little surprised. I think your expectations were probably more suitable for a hotel environment. The pictures show a clean minimal apartment with white walls. That's how I have chosen to live, a minimalist. I never told you that I didn't want you to not cook in the kitchen. I found that to be not true. The notes were for wifi info, apartment in and remind to lock the door, etc.. along with a list of food recommendations in nyc.
