I would just like to say that I myself live in this apartment during the winter periods, holidays etc. .. I apply the principle of Airbnb sharing between individuals .. so this is not an "apartment crossing "real estate and decoration suitable lifestyle of my family, we prefer simple and useful things for life everyday ..
"Were the upstairs neighbors loud in the mornings" I would just say that the people in our building are not necessarily holidays throughout the year and likes to get up in the morning to go to work and take affected their children to school.. so as we say in France "people live" they simply do not make noise expression, I assure you .. by against the evening and night is complete silence, they sit and they sleep, so it is for this reason that I ask my guests not to party during the evening and night. In France after 10 pm until 7am was not allowed to make noise, even if you live in a house with a plot around.
Good luck for your experience AIRBNB, since it was your first time for you, Nicole!
