|Check-in before||On arrangement|
We arrived at the apartment in the early afternoon and spent one hour to clean (extremely dusty soil, not yet own bathroom with dirty towels, dirty toilets ...)
One of the three beds was not done and we had to prepare the arriving. Ldraps dirty pile piled in the hallway.
1 cover for 3 beds; we used bedspreads (not hot) and we had 2 nights without heating; we slept with sweaters and socks; NICE ..... Our stay was only 3 nights; if it had been longer, I would have refused the apartment in that state.
Nous sommes arrivés dans l'appartement en début d'après midi et avons passé 1 heure à faire le ménage (sol extrêmement poussiéreux, salle d'eau pas propre avec encore des serviettes sales, toilettes sales...)
Un des 3 lits n'était pas fait et nous avons du le préparer en arrivant. Tas de ldraps sales entassés dans le couloir.
1 couverture pour 3 lits; nous nous sommes servis des dessus de lits (pas chauds) et nous avons eu 2 nuits sans chauffage; nous avons dormi avec des pulls et des chaussettes;SYMPA..... Notre séjour était seulement de 3 nuits; s'il avait été plus long, j'aurai refusé l'appartement dans cet état.
The rented apartment, advertized on the platform wimdu.de as „Luxus-LOFT 3 Schlafzimmer, 2 Bäder – Ausstattung“ ("Luxury LOFT 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths – Equiped”) had several serious defects and deviations from the published specifications. The use of the apartment as described in the ad was not possible, leading to additional unplanned costs and expenses. As per the terms and conditions, all problems were promptly reported and well documented by photographs.
The shortcomings in detail:
• Severe uncleanliness (including bed sheets, towels, bathroom, kitchen, refrigerator, floors) and other serious hygiene issues throughout the entire apartment
• No Wi-Fi or Internet access, a direct deviation from the terms of reference in your ad
• Toilet was broken/defective – the tank ran constantly
• Air conditioning unit did not work (it was masked)
• Soiled linens and bedding
• One of the bedrooms had no bedding whatsoever (due to the low temperatures it was not possible to stay overnight)
• Soiled towels
• Dirty, foul-smelling refrigerator – completely non-usable
• Non-usable cabinets (misconstruction)
• Dirty floors throughout the apartment and in particular the bathrooms
• Dirty windows
• The trash was never emptied
• There were defective doorknobs which would fall out of the door
• There was no laundry detergent
• The clocks were defective
• TVs did not work – all four of them
No promised on-site support was received from you as the responsible US agency. No support was received at any time, no action was taken to address any of the shortcomings. A selection of the submitted photographs can be found in the appendix to my e-mail.
Windu is the most expensive website to rent an apartment on the face of the earth. Based on an email sent by CityKit (Management Company of the property) the actual cost of the apartment was $2001.00 for 7 days but we paid to Windu 2,421.21. This means 420 (20%) commission. Making this type of commission could be typical in the industry but letting the client to find out about it is very unprofessional. Hiding key information like the location of the apartment is no very professional either (third floor without elevator) Later we realized the apartment was in poor shape and not properly maintained, CityKit totally ignored our request for simple things missing like extra cover and linen for the sofa bed or to send a technician to fix a huge leak on the bathroom sink. Definitely I won't recommend Wimdu to a friend.
The host cancelled the booking, this review is automated.
Location very good and conveniently located, because right on the subway line 6. The apartment is on the 5th floor, a narrow flight of stairs and no lift. Therefore, only suitable for fit people.
Otherwise, we had some trouble with the apartment. 1. We, we were given the wrong key and had night at 11.30 clock wait two hours to help. 2. There were not enough bath towels available and the toilet flush ran without interruption. 3. The house is pretty dirty, but the apartment clean. The complaint concerning. Towels and toilet flushing was not fixed during our stay despite personal visit to the service bureau! When we checked out, we received only a lame "Sorry".
Abstract: Top Location, Rest flop!
Location sehr gut und praktisch gelegen, da direkt an der U-Bahn Linie 6. Das Apartment ist im 5. Stock, eine enge Treppe hoch und ein Lift ist nicht vorhanden. Deshalb nur für fitte Leute geeignet.
Ansonsten hatten wir einige Mühe mit der Wohnung. 1. Wir erhielten wir den falschen Schlüssel und mussten Nachts um 11.30 Uhr zwei Stunden auf Hilfe warten. 2. Es waren nicht genügend Badtücher vorhanden und die Toilettenspülung lief ohne Unterbruch. 3. Das Haus ist ziemlich dreckig, das Apartment aber sauber. Die Beanstandung betr. Tücher und Toilettenspülung wurde während unseres Aufenthaltes trotz persönlichem Besuch des Service-Büros nicht behoben! Beim Auschecken erhielten wir nur ein lahmes "Sorry".
Kurzfassung: Location Top, Rest Flop!
basically large spacious apartment, good location, two beds rather small, from construction sites at night (to) a lot of noise! Internet and TV did not work (also by telephone demand not), no lift ;-(
grundsätzlich grosse geräumige wohnung, gute lage, zwei betten eher klein, von baustellen in der nacht (zu)viel lärm! Internet und tv hat nicht funktioniert (auch nach telefonischer nachfrage nicht), kein lift ;-(
Quite ok residence close to everything. However, little worn apartment with very un-insulated windows. Did not even wait for 1.5 hours when the keys are not suited to apartment. Such gets a little dicey when you traveled a long time and want to leave their bags etc and come prepared. Otherwise, it was mostly just OK.
Helt ok bostad nära till det mesta. Dock lite sliten lägenhet med väldigt oisolerade fönster. Fick även vänta i 1,5 timme då nycklarna inte passade till lägenheten. Sådant blir lite jobbigt när man rest en längre tid och vill lämna ifrån sig väskor mm och komma iordning. Annars var det mesta helt OK.
Q. Giving more information about accommodation
.- Wimdu should check that the accommodations are optimal offer (cleaning, condition of furniture, etc.) because we found a fourth floor without elevator and a person with trouble climbing stairs (to have known would have taken another option ). The apartment was prepared for two people and had paid for four. The sofa mattress was broken and had to put the mattress on the floor, dirty mattress that was so sickening that sleep in the dirt and damage was from the portal to the top floor, dirt had accumulated for a long time. We had to go two days to the agency so that we solved about the broken bed
Stay in that apartment was very unpleasant.
P.- Dando más información sobre los alojamientos
.- Wimdu debería controlar que los alojamientos que oferta estén en condiciones óptimas ( limpieza, estado del mobiliario, etc.) porque nosotros nos encontramos con un cuarto piso sin ascensor y una persona con problemas para subir escaleras (de haber sabido habríamos cogido otra opción). El apartamento estaba preparado para dos personas y se había pagado para cuatro. El somier del sofá estaba roto y tuvimos que colocar el colchón en el suelo, colchón que estaba tan sucio que daba asco dormir en el , la suciedad y el deterioro estaba desde el portal hasta el último piso ,tenia suciedad acumulada desde hacia mucho tiempo .Tuvimos qué ir dos días a la agencia para que nos solucionaran lo de la cama rota
La estancia en ese apartamento fue muy desagradable.
arrival was terrible, they did not wait to give us the keys and left us only a phone call that could not be accessed from a mobile Spanish. When we managed to get was not indicated the number of the apartment, so we had to call again ... pray very badly organized those nyguest. The apartment is well located and very good internet connection, the terrace a success if you go with good weather, and well equipped kitchen, space for storing clothes.
The bad: we had no TV all the time, gave us long to fix, outside very dirty, very small bathroom, the air conditioning barely blow cold air, and had little bugs coming out of the old furniture in the bathroom (only the bathroom). Finally when we need something from nyguest ignored us and sent us an email saying three days before we had to leave the next day, when we still had three days (had to fix it) ... generally very poorly organized
la llegada fue malísima, no nos esperaron para darnos las llaves y solo nos dejaron un teléfono al que llamar al que no podíamos acceder desde un móvil español. Cuando conseguimos llegar no estaba indicado el número del apartamento, así que tuvimos que llamar ora vez...muy mal organizado los de nyguest. El piso está bien situado y la conexión a internet muy buena, la terraza un acierto si vas con buen tiempo, y la cocina bien equipada, espacio para guardar ropa.
Lo malo: no tuvimos Tv en todo el tiempo, nos dieron largas para arreglarla, los exteriores muy sucios, el baño muy pequeño, el aire acondicionado apenas echaba aire frío, y había insectos pequeños que salían de los muebles viejos del baño (sólo en el baño). Por último cuando necesitamos algo de nyguest nos ignoraron y nos mandaron un email 3 días antes diciendo que teníamos que irnos al día siguiente, cuando aún teníamos 3 días (hubo que solucionarlo)...en general muy mal organizados
Information on the department is as shown in the pictures. You accessed by (2 blocks) to subway terminal. The only downside is you do want little noise at night is difficult for the transit of cars. The neighbors no problem and is a safe area, quiet walk transit.
La información sobre el departamento es tal como se muestra en las fotos. Tiene acceso cerca (2 cuadras) a terminal de subway. La única desventaja es que sí quieres poco ruido en la noche es difícil por el tránsito de los autos. Los vecinos no hay problema y es una zona segura, de tránsito tranquilo a pie.
