    The owner was never present. The first day it was her daughter that received us. On last day there was no one to say good bye to us. The money was on the table.

    As Marina has a very busy schedule, I saw her only twice - at the beginning for introduction and key delivery and at the end for check-out. She doesn't live in this apartment herself, but her daughter does, so everything was always provided for and you knew that there was someone there if you had needed help, which was good.

    Marina and her daughter are very nice and friendly women and it was a pleasure to stay for two weeks in their flat.

Schöne, gut ausgestattete Wohnung. Verbesserungswürdig sind aus meiner Sicht lediglich fehlende Nachttische bzw. Leuchten oder wenigstens Lichtschalter am Bett. Auch fehlten Teelöffel. Am Anreisetag war die Wohnung zu kalt, eine zweite Bettdecke wurde immerhin angeboten. Die Sicherheit in der Nachbarschaft kann von uns nicht objektiv beurteilt werden, wir haben uns aber subjektiv nicht immer sicher gefühlt. Gut ist, dass der Bus b15 in unmittelbarer Nähe hält und sogar eine Direktverbindung vom/zum JFK-Airport, Terminal 5 für $ 2,75 ermöglicht! Der Transfer zwischen den einzelnen Terminals mit dem airtrain ist kostenlos.

Die Wohnung war genauso, wie sie beschrieben und wie wir sie uns vorgestellt haben. Nach Downtown dauert es ein wenig mit der Bahn aber man kommt ganz wunderbar mit der nahegelgenen Metro überallhin. Es hat alles wunderbar geklappt und wir würden sofort wieder buchen.

Nuestra anfitriona nos hizo esperar bajo la lluvia casi dos horas. Cuando alguien llegó con las llaves, nos encontramos un apartamento sucio: no había cambiado las sábanas y todo estaba sin asear. Los dos cuartos de baño que se anuncian en realidad se reducen a uno, porque en el otro no funciona la ducha. Las sartenes da asco solo mirarlas; el secador deja de funcionar a los dos minutos de enchufarlo; la cama del sofá se hunde y no permite que dos personas duerman; la cama de una de las habitaciones tiene un somier más pequeño que el colchón, impidiendo dormir en los extremos del mismo; el aire acondicionado sólo existe en una habitación; las ventanas o no pueden abrirse o cuesta mucho trabajo hacerlo... Para colmo, la noche anterior a nuestra marcha vinieron los nuevos inquilinos por falta de comunicación con la dueña. Y al día siguient, mientras hacíamos las maletas, vino su empleada a molestarnos y a meternos prisa. Una experiencia nefasta.
