This is the second time in my whole experience as a host (180 reviews) that I have someone booking the apartment and then trying to get away without paying by making fake stories. Hopefully, airbnb was on my side. Bonne annee a tous!
Clarification that this is £170 agreed for three guests, and accommodated four. We also moved our guests to the master bedroom that also includes a five-chair dining table and a double sofa for no additional charge.
