Well the languages list is pretty lame. I can speak English, Spanish, and Telugu (on a good day) fluently and can scrape by in Hindi, Swahili and Tamil (on a good day).

Abhinav was very responsive and helpful before the visit. He was not there during my visit so he arranged for the key pickup with a friend. The apartment was clean and easy to get to. Towels & soaps were provided.
The neighborhood felt safe during the day & night. The neighborhood area is clean and well kept.
Parking was available on the street from 6pm to 8am (info posted on street signs ) . During the day I moved my car to the city parking (see my tour map of Madison (website hidden) ) near the hotel my conference was in.
Tip on parking: you need to get your car placed near 6pm otherwise you may have to hunt around for a street location.
It was summer time for my visit so university students were not as many. In the fall & spring school time I could see parking being a bigger problem.
City parking is very inexpensive, all day (8am - 5pm) parking was $10. 24 hour parking is also available in several close garages. See (website hidden) for details.
The weather was very nice so evening walking to the later conference events was very easy.
Abhinav checked in during my stay, offering to meet up when he returned from his trip. I appreciated the offer.
If you are a runner, there are lots of places to run and sights to see. If you bike, there are bike paths plus Madison is a bike friendly city.
I would highly recommend Abhinav's place in the future.
Staying at Abhinav's felt like staying at a relative's place out of town -- safe, clean, casual, quiet, and easy. I don't have any cousins, but I imagine this to be like that (maybe Abhinav will let me adopt him as my cousin). He was out of town for the weekend, so a friend patiently met me on arrival and then even walked me to the nearby Echo tavern, where I welcomed myself home with a Friday Fish Fry. I had my own little space and a comfortable bed and bathroom. Abhinav checked on me via text every day, and departing could not have been any easier. The only issue, if you have a car, is parking, since there are few spots and many of those are 2 hour spots (not a problem on Sundays, but otherwise..), but I actually didn't have a problem finding something in a 3 block radius any of the 3 nights that I was there. Excellent central location. I would stay here again if Abhinav would have me! Thanks for a good first airbnb experience.
Abhinav (email hidden), he makes you feel welcome and is very helpful. And did I mention that the location is perfect? Whether you want to go to one lake (and terrace) or another, it's both a short walk. Thanks Abhinav! Recommended!
This apartment is conveniently located in close walking distance of the Monona Convention Center in downtown Madison. Abhinav was helpful in letting me in on the day of my arrival (accommodating a last-minute change in my travel schedule) and setting me up with wireless internet, then let me have the apartment to myself for the remainder of my stay.
The apartment was very much as advertised, and having a private bathroom was a big plus for me. Abhinav was an excellent host and very willing to share his company and local knowledge when he was there. I needed private time to work and the balance was perfect for me. One of the best points was the location- near the lake and an easy walk to downtown, shopping and the university.
This rental was not entirely satisfactory because the host was not available when we arrived in Madison (when it was about 5 degrees outside.) The guest did not gain access for about 4 or 5 hours after arrival in the city; fortunately, we had friends we could wait with. There is no cable tv with the room. The furnishings in the room met the expectations of the professor for whom I had rented the room.
Ich habe Abhinav als sehr hilfsbereiten, freundlichen und sozialen Menschen erlebt. Auch das Zimmer war ok und ich kann jedem, der Madison mit Abhinav und seinen Freunden erleben moechte, diese Unterkunft nur empfehlen.
I enjoyed staying with Abhinav for about one month and was happy to experience a time full of meeting new people and enjoying my stay.
Abhinav is great. He was wonderfully engaging and welcoming. The location was convenient for getting around downtown Madison and the UW campus. It was easy get to a lot of places on foot or by catching buses nearby.
I really enjoyed staying in Abhinav's apartment. It was cosy, welcoming and pleasant. He was thoughtful, communicative (email hidden). I only wish he had been in town longer so we could have gotten better acquainted.
I enjoyed staying in Abhinav's apartment. Abhinav was actually out of town when I visited, but he was flexible and accommodating in facilitating my stay. It was clean, spacious, and located close to both the university campus and Capitol square. The apartment was a good value for the money. I also really enjoyed the stylish look of the apartment.
Abhinav stayed with us and was a great guest. We enjoyed his company and would definitely share our home with him again.
Abhinav has stayed with me several times now and each time I am more impressed with what a nice person he is. I feel like I have a familiar friend visiting when he arrives. He is always very respectful of my home and I highly recommend him to other hosts.
One of the great things about Airbnb is being able to meet other hosts and form a connection with them. If I go to Madison I will definitely reserve Abhinav's room there. I look forward to his visits here and welcome him back any time.
Abhinav is an ideal guest. He is warm and personable and nice to have around. He is great at communicating his plans. He kept everything neat and clean and treated my home with care and respect. I highly recommend him to other airbnb hosts. A very nice guest. Thanks Abhinav.
Abhinav is a cool dude who can get along with pretty much anybody. Plan for lots of fun adventures if you stay with him. Also,demand a grilled cheese - he makes a mean one :)
