This apartment is situated above a cell phone store in a neighborhood that consists entirely of low-end shops whose storefronts are shielded from the local hooligans who roam the streets at night by steel, roll-down overhead doors. Think Asian street market by day, abandoned warehouse district by night, and you’ll get an accurate picture of the environs. You will have to use two security codes and three (!) keys to enter the apartment. Bring a flashlight, as the outdoor security lights do not work. The apartment is advertised as having a “fully equipped kitchen with everything that you will need to prepare a lovely homemade meal,” but we couldn’t cook breakfast because the stove did not work and the kitchen had no toaster or coffeemaker. The bed consists of two brutally hard 4-inch-thick futon mattresses, pushed together. The bathroom is a closet retrofit, about two feet wide. The apartment has no air conditioning or ventilation system. You will either have to suffocate in stifling heat or leave the window open, listen to the loud drunks on the street below, and hope the pigeons don’t waddle in in the morning. Bring your own garbage bags, paper towels and cleaning supplies, as they are not included. I'm not entirely sure what you get for your $89 "cleaning fee." If you inquire of Nancy about the loose wires hanging from the ceiling, you’ll be informed (perhaps a couple of days later), “I'm sorry but a smoke detector is not available in the property. This is stated in the listing.” Actually, that was not true (the listing does boast a smoke detector, which in any event is required by UK law) but I wasn’t about to waste my vacation time quibbling with a derelict landlord. Nancy stated on three separate occasions that she would send her “staff” to repair or replace a broken chair (which I had never even complained about -- perhaps an earlier guest had) but neither Nancy nor her staff ever showed up. All in all, this apartment and its mismanagement was a comedy of haphazard incompetence and neglect. Trust me, you can do A LOT better than this apartment for $1,640 a week! I blame myself, mainly, for having waited until the last minute to book a place, and for not having taken the time to read between the lines in the other posted reviews. I’ve used AirBNB throughout Europe and the U.S. in the past, and this has been my only negative AirBNB experience.
