Hi Ben, I appreciate your feedback about decorating the house and that there is no living room etc, though it is apparent from the picture that there is no sitting room and the condition of the house.
You also mention that you are from the normal middle-class/average background so you cannot stay in a place, which in your opinion is in a rough area. I completely disagree with you. Because before you booked you had options to check it on (Hidden by Airbnb) map to see where the flat is. You could see the local crime statics as well. The people who stayed in this flat through Airbnb they thought the flat was absolutely perfect for them what it is and the flat received good reviews for it over the last 3 months. The neighbourhood and our neighbours are wonderful and some of them living here for life and living in this area peacefully. you can check the crime statics of this area that it’s a perfectly normal area. we have been owning this property since (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) and we never had break-in or any sort of disturbance.
Furthermore had you told me you require the sitting room we could have turned a room to a sitting room as the sofa can be turned into a bed. as you were only 1 person this could have been done easily.
I did try to call you after you checked in but you did not reply so I could not know if there were any problems and you have left no messages for me. However please accept my apology as this time I could not fulfil your expectations. I wish you all the best.
