Now in east Africa and and stayed at Airbnbs where level of cleanliness doesn’t come close to my standards. Some properties were clean but not super clean , not anyway how I clean my rooms. I never gave anyone low rate. It’s their home and it was not disgusting how it was in one of my stays in San Francisco so I let it go as hosts were super nice .
I had couple from China recently and they gave me 1* on cleanliness . I was not even angry but in total shock.
Out of 102 reviews this is the second 1*. The first was from
Couple who saw termites on a window 2.5 years ago.
Chinese said that bathroom was not clean , and mattress was old and with spots. That just made me laugh : the mattress is old but it’s dark blue and there are no visible spots on it. But even more funny it was covered with thick mattress cover that is not very easy to remove unless you lift the mattress . On top of that was sheet. So what these people were doing lifting my mattress and removing mattress cover??
This is exactly was my respond to them
In public review. Their review also followed 5 recent reviews that describes my house as “superclean”, “spotless”, and “upscale”.
Again I remembered the guy I used to work for who said often: “people are stupid” after each incident like this.
