Harish made this booking on behalf of his family and is giving this review on their behalf, who I am pleased to know had a "lovely stay" at my apartment.
This review should be read in this context, as having not personally experienced staying at my apartment it does appear this review has lost some thing in translation.
Looking to some of these comments in turn:
1) "A bit away from Central London" :
The review additionally states that "tube station at walking distance" - the nearest tube station is Kentish Town. With a knowledge of London and plotting the maps, Kentish Town station cannot be accurately described as "A bit away from Central London" .
2) "Quite neighbourhood":
My listing does describe the apartment as being within a quiet neighbourhood. It appears that there might be an intention to confirm this as a quiet neighbourhood, but the spelling of "quite" brings a different meaning to this.
3) "Just house needs more on storage units and furnishings"
This listing if for an apartment//flat and not a house.
The floor plan attached to the listing, provides:
a) A floor space of 48.8 square metres for a one bedroom apartment in central London - any estate agent will confirm that this is a good size;
b) Shows there are two walk-in closets, edged in lilac - one in the hallway and the other in the bedroom - it is rare to find a walk-in closet in any house let alone an apartment;
c) A balcony with sizes 1.68 m x 3.02 m and
d) The bathroom has a floor length linen cupboard.
The guests who actually stayed at the apartment, expressed as their first impressions, being thrilled about the enormous storage available at the apartment. Given the total opposite comments to the reality within this review, it appears something is definitely lost in translation.
As to the furnishings at this apartment, there has been no issue raised by the review concerning the apartment not being true to the pictures. Accordingly, the pictures show the usual furnishings to be expected in any apartment including bed, side tables,mirrors, hair dryer, lamps, alarm clock, comfortable cushions, chair, sofa, TV, dinning table and chairs, balcony furniture (table and chairs), fridge-freezer, washing machine, oven and hob, kettle, toaster, microwave and crockery to name a few.
Some of these furnishings and appliances are visible in the listings picture. It is not immediately clear from this review what other furnishings the reviewer would have liked to have in the apartment, that would justify the use of the word "need".
Throughout the guests stay, communication was maintained by host. If at any given time during their stay, guests had any specific special needs with respect to reasonable additional furnishings, host would have been more than happy to work with guests to fulfil these needs.
Finally, these were my first guests for my hosting and my very first review on Airbnb. I value their comments and appreciate the time taken to give the same. I am encouraged to recall everything that was shared in private and to know that overall they in turn say to me publicly:
"Thank you for a lovely stay".
This is what it is all about in the end.
