Our stay at Charis's was short but sweet - all as advertised, with a warm, clean, comfortable room. We had a great chat and cup of tea with Chris, Charis's tenant, in the evening, and he was a lovely and friendly semi-host.
This place was lovely. We had just had a tough time in immigration so coming here afterwards was so nice and stress free. We were given the code so we could check in late with no hassels. The locations was perfect for what we needed- heaps of food/restaurants walking distance, we even walked to Chinook the big shopping centre (longer walk of 1 hour). MEC an amazing snow gear shop was also close walking distance so we could get what we needed on our way into Banff. Comfy clean bed and hot shower- what more could you ask for.
This inner city space was exactly as described - though it was much bigger than we expected, which can be a definite plus for those who like extra space. Very clean, the bed was comfy and we were thankful for the very warm sheets on it(!), parking right outside, small yet good book selection, a full kitchen, and a washer and dryer that we didn't use, but definitely another plus if we had been able to stay longer. Charis was quick to respond and we were quite thankful as it was sort of a last minute booking for NYE. The space is close to 17th Ave, which has great restaurants and small shops. It is also close to downtown. Overall we were very pleased with this rental and highly recommend!
We spent more than one month here. This inner city place was inexpensive, quiet, clean and warm. Charis was so nice and quick to respond.
A general place in a general naibourhbod.. not the best value place in Calgary but cosy none the less. I'd say there again.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Hi,Charis was welcoming and helpfull however we were both disapointed by followings;
False advertising, misleading photos. Room given to us was not what we saw in listing.
That basement room was Not "Beautiful Healthy Executive" as advertised and we found it exactly opposit and very over priced. It worths only $40. Carpet was dirty, stained with strong odor. Room was damp and Moldy. None of the doors in the basement would close including bathroom door. No extra bed sheet was available. Sheets on bed were stained and very old. We notice strong unpleasnat odor at the foyer. Staircase was very dirty.
I would not recommend it.
We had a great trip best way to travel!
Charis is a fun and helpful host. The room is in the basement so it's a little cold-but a heater is provided. The house is in a great location and close to the university.
The hostess was gracious.
She was not able to provide a key for the room.
The room was poorly lit, I could not read as planned.
It was in the basement, the windows were way up. The rugs to the room were dirty and there was an enormous smell in the foyer before my room.
The room was cold even with the space heater, as it put out little heat.
The room was more like a hostel setting, not a Executive Suite as advertised.
The rugs and the area around the shower in particular were not clean.
The bedding linens were stained.
The hostess knew I was disappointed and offered a refund but my itinerary was planned and printed. It was really not possible for me to move without finding a printer as I have no GPS or internet on my phone.
Truly a big disappointment. I would not stay again. The room may be worth $35.00 to me, certainly not $85.00.
The room is very over stated and priced.
Charis!!!! Thank you for choosing to stay with me! You are an absolute delight to have around...perhaps a longer stay next time!!!?? Enjoy the rest of your holiday Charis......warm regards, Danelle
Charismatic was amazing. Even though we had a bit of a mixup on our end she took it in her stride and we had a great time. We would love for her to stay again :)
Charis was a great guest ! polite ,clean and upbeat we would be happy to have her back anytime !
Charis was a lovely guest and we were happy to have her join us twice. Would definitely recommend her to other hosts.
