The apartment is really great. 5 minutes walk from Times Square. The metro is 3 street. The apartment overlooks the street so bruillant but we soon found sleep. Ideal for 4 people as 2 beds and a sofa bed Only flat apartment 'was a bit dirty but we will return.
L'appartement est vraiment très bien situé. A 5 minutes de Times square a pied. Le metro se trouve à 3 rue. L'appartement donne sur la rue donc bruillant mais nous avons vite trouvé le sommeil. Idéal pour 4 personnes car 2 lits et un canapé lit. Seul bémol l'appartement' était un peu sale mais nous reviendrons.
the apartment is very close in the 3rd floors without lift, the gear. The rooms are tiny and not very well kept, the beds 140cm. The bathroom is in a very bad condition, the shower emits about anywhere, an adjustment is not possible. The water takes a long time to become warm.
The lamps have a bad contact, in a bedroom barely anzuschsalten when one turns on the light in the kitchen, it fails in all other rooms. The mediation office is very rude and does not receive a. Even when we had problems opening the door (stuck very firmly) has hung us Telefn, fortunately has a Nschbar helped. Strong cooking smells in the apartment because of the restaurant below.
die Wohnung ist im 3. Stocke ohne Lift, der Gang sehr eng. Die Zimmer sind winzig und eher ungepflegt, die Betten 140cm. Das Bad ist in einem sehr schlechten Zustand, die Dusche etwa strahlt irgendwo hin, ein verstellen nicht möglich. Das wasser braucht sehr lange um warm zu werden.
Die Lampen haben ein Wackelkontakt, im einen Schlafzimmer kaum anzuschsalten, wenn man das Licht in der Küche anmacht, fällt es in allen anderen Zimmern aus. Das Vermittlungsoffice ist sehr unfreundlich und kommt einem nicht entgegen. Auch als wir Probleme hatten, die Tür zu öffnen (klemmt sehr fest) hat man uns das Telefn aufgehängt, zum Glück hat ein Nschbar geholfen. Starke Küchengerüche in der Wohnung wegen dem Restaurant unten.
Goodies: The situation is very good. Certainly Avenue 1 is quite eccentric, but it is 15-20 minutes from the Empire, Times Square and Central Park. Being able to be 6 in an apartment is a big plus for a group of friends or family.
Cons: The sound. One has the impression of being outside so there is noise. 2 rooms (very / too) small and some beds are comfortable moyennent.
Overall: Hard to be more than 6 adults in this apartment. It is ideal if there is sleep, so take advantage of this amazing city, especially since we are close to everything.
Les plus: La situation est très bonne. Certes l'avenue 1 est assez excentrée, mais on est à 15-20 min de l'Empire, de Times Square et Central Park. Le fait de pouvoir être 6 dans un appartement est un gros plus pour un groupe d'amis ou une famille.
Les moins: La sonorisation. On a l'impression d'être dehors tellement on entend le bruit. 2 chambres sont (très/trop) petites et certains lits sont moyennent confortables.
Global: Dur d'être plus que 6 adultes dans cet appartement. Il est idéal si on y fait que dormir, afin de profiter de cette ville incroyable, surtout qu'on est proche de tout.
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.
