Is this a harsh review or is it totally justifie?. Would you tone it down, if you were me?
This would be my very first negative one since I have recently decided to apply the “No more Mr. nice guy policy” on myself.
I used to be the type going by the “If you don’t have anything nice to say, say nothing at all.” rule. But I guess it’s time to tell it as it is.
What do you think?
Here’s what I plan to post about my recent guests (Let’s call her H.):
"Not Recommended! AVOID H. at all costs!
Irresponsible, Disrespectful, Condescending, Demanding, Entitled and Arrogant!
Issue: H. left the main door of the apparent open after they checked-out (!!!) for any opportunistic intruder to walk in freely and roam around and steal in the apartment! A blatant and shocking disregard of other peoples’ property!
They were leaving in the morning and I didn’t get into the apartment until 4 pm on that day. Just to find the main door had been open the whole time! That is for a good 6 hours! Who does that???
Regarding check-out I always say to all my guests: It’s very easy, just leave the keys on the table in the apartment and close the door shut from the outside when you leave. H. nodded to that and also seemed to understand English very well.
Issue: During check-in H. saw two bath towels prepared and asked if that was all? I said yes. She then made very condescending and bewildered face and pointed out to me that they were staying for three nights and that they will need a fresh towel every day. (!!!)
Apart from the fact that this behavior is utterly UNECOLOGICAL, harmful to the environment and unnecessary, this demand came across as very entitled and arrogant.
Please, H., next time book your stay at Four Seasons Hotel, Hilton or Carlton Ritz. There you will get a fresh fluffy towel every day for your buck! A very different buck that you pay at airbnb that is!!!
Also, please note that using the same towel three times in a row is perfectly fine, sanitary and above all ECOLOGICAL!!! (Google it.)
I noticed this preposterous demand of 3 feet high stack of fresh towels in other Korean guests before. I don’t get it, the Northern part of your country is suffering in poverty under a horrendously oppressing communist regime and you are fussing about not having enough towels while traveling around Europe? Get hold of yourselves!!!
