Sorry I haven’t been around (I think I said this last time too). Things have been very slow with my rental recently, and I’ve been doing other things.
I just got this message - there was one earlier message from this person, but it just asked whether the room was available. This is a rather lazy post from me - I’m just asking what your reaction is.
It’s a slightly odd post. The request is for 7 days, and I offer a 10% discount for 7 days or later, and my rates are hardly sky high. And the guest lists her location as Germany, though on the net, who really knows? It seems to me that my rates should be cheap for a German. And the difference between the one and two person rates isn’t significant, even with the extras (Airbnb’s take and India’s GST taxes) added on.
Overall, I’m inclined to ignore it, on the grounds that reasonable people wouldn’t be making a big deal about a small amount of money. Thoughts? Also, the one guest review this person was also slightly odd. It complained that the host had 6 rooms, so it was “like a little hostel”. No positive comments. Not particularly encouraging. She got a stellar review from the host, but that means little in my experience.
I’ve received other wacky messages, but I’m making an exhibit of this one, for no very good reason.
I just wanted to book the room after I thought about the price twice (I insert two guests before but for some reason it didn’t showed me the price for two), then I wanted to book it and the price raised.
I’m doing an internship at xxxx xxxx charitable trust due to my studies in biomedical engineering for a half a year, going to a 11 days mobility camp with the trust on the 19th of September. As I do not have a room yet and a good friend is visiting and I arrived a little bit sick, I really would adore to be at a place where I could rest, welcome myself and am not that far from the trust.
Would it be possible not to pay the additional price for my friend? If not, I’m unfortunately not able to book the room (from 8th - 19th of September)
Looking forward to your message,
