we enjoy your flat, very clean, no noise on the bedrooms side, noisy on the front side if some one has to sleep in the sofa.
the can opener needs to be change, and the bread grill works if you keep a finger on the button, the rest was fine,
we had the keys inside the flat waiting for us in the evening and a neighbour opened the front door for us. the east village is a cool place to stay, very closed to the subway, Great ! eric from France
the explanations to get the keys were good, the front door was missing, but the keys were gaved to us in the evening.
landlord is a company / no private person. Key pick up went as planned, quick responses to questions. apartment is well located (earplugs due. busy street) but sweltering and may use updating.
verhuurder is een bedrijf/ geen privepersoon. Sleutel ophalen ging als gepland, snelle reacties op vragen. apartement is op prima locatie (oordoppen mee ivm. drukke straat)maar smoorheet en mag wel wat opgeknapt worden.
We cannot recommend this place at all. We saw mice in the kitchen. Noice from the street was very loud and the bathroom was tiny. We met homeless outside the entrance to the house several times, presumably because it looked very bad from outside. Some things were either inexpedient set up or did not work.
Our apartment was well located, clean and good enough team '. But the acoustic insulation as well as heat was really poor if not non-existent. And as the building was occupied by noisy people, it has some problems. Fortunately it was not too cold during our stay!
Notre appartement etait bien situe, propre et assez bien équipe'. Mais l'isolation aussi bien acoustique que thermique était vraiment insuffisante pour ne pas dire inexistante. Et comme l'immeuble était occupé par des gens bruyants, cela a posé quelques problèmes. Heureusement qu'il n'a pas fait trop froid au cours de notre séjour!
We found the apartment small, yet cozy and clean but unfortunately something dark and cold. The apartment has been very thin but for a week it was ok.
Wir fanden die Wohnung klein, trotzdem gemütlich und sauber aber leider etwas dunkel und kalt. Die Wohnung ist sehr hellhörig gewesen aber für eine Woche war es ok.
The apartment as described on the Wimdu site looked the same as the advertised picture on arrival in terms of decor, however you would not describe it as either "stunning" or 'newly renovated". There was plenty of clean linen however the cleaning was fairly basic, two of the main living area's light fittings were held together with gaffer tape and paper, 2 light globes were out [these were replaced at our request and the toilet cistern constantly played up. The main bedroom had no hanging space, the cupboard had 4 narrow shelves. Our suitcases had to be kept in the living area as there wasnt enough floor space in the bedroom. The location was described as" Brand new Midtown 3Bed 2Bath" onWest30th and 9th -this was the rental I had selected and put a deposit on I assumed, however the apartment was located onWest29th and 9th. I had emailed the host to query the different address and to check on the beds/baths but as it had the same 8253 on the Wimdu site ,I assumed it would be ok. I had communicated to the host that we were staying there for my daughter's wedding. So, it was on the top floor of 3, situated over a noisy bar and opposite the US mail sorting building which went all night, the trucks ran all night as well as trucks running to the Lincoln Tunnel so we all bought earplugs to block out the noise in order to sleep at night. The airconditioners thankfully worked and their noise helped blockout the traffic noise and heat . The apartment's entrance had a double door which helped with security as the ground floor bar was a regula rgathering place for drunks and the homeless At ground level inside the apartment block the garbage was piled high for the first week and really stank. The apartment was described as having "elevator and laundry on premises" This wasnt the case it was a 3 floor walkup. This was especially annoying as I had booked this apartment over others because of this feature. When we arrived on Sunday night after a very long flight from Australia the booking office closed soon after we collected the keys and then we still had to make our way to the apartment..There was no welcoming letter or message from the host in the apartment, no instructions re working of TV etc. The place needs work the windows need cleaning as does under the beds . The light on the outside landing didnt work so the steep stairs werent lit either. Also more to the point no one was there to go over the state of the flat as we took possession. These guys had my $500 holding deposit -what if there was a dispute over the state of the apartment? At the end of our stay I waited for the inspector to show up, she was very nice. We wanted to make sure there would be no issues with the apartment. We found out that the previous tenants had trashed the place, obviously the flat had been given a quick fix ie taped up light fittings! Wimdu needs to do a more thorough "quality check" Lastly the host Reuven emailed "if you have a late flight you are welcome to leave your luggage in our office and pick it up later" He does not mention that it will cost $5 per bag to do so
I was also quite surprised to find that the ENTIRE amount $6878 was deducted from my credit card on the day I made the booking in April even though we were not arriving until September. We travel overseas regularly and have never had a bad experience until now. We will not be using Wimdu ever again and will advise everyone else against it. Our business friend who books with Wimdu for airline staff recommended the site to us was equally disappointed.
It seems the only recourse to poor service is a bad review
The transaction took place so perfect and very professional. Answer all questions. Good organization to recover and leave the keys. The apartment has kept its promises. Small but well located, well equipped and clean.
La transaction s'est déroulée de façon parfaite et très professionnelle. Réponse à toutes les questions. Bonne organisation pour récupérer et laisser les clefs.
L'appartement a tenu ses promesses. Tout petit, mais bien situé, très bien équipé et propre.
The appartment is simple but ok.
But sleeping is a nightmare. Or better, you won't have a nightmare since you do not sleep. The windows of the sleeping rooms (street side) are so badly isolated that you experience the very noisy street as if yr bed was on the street !
I cannot recommend this place.
