Remodeled Gem in the Castro!

A lovely apartment in a fantastic part of town, very comfortable with plenty of perks

Remodeled Gem in the Castro!

We stayed in the lower apartment during 2 weeks.
Amy is a very good guesthouse owner: she has always been very kind and flexible with us.

Although the sheets aren't planned to be changed after one week of stay, she anyway brought us new ones. 
She also proposed me to do my laundry in her wash machine and returned it to me well dried and folded at the end of the same day.
(Actually, I am quite sure that, at the time of my booking, in the amenities, it was stated that there was a washing machine).

For all this I am really thankful!

Moreover, in the apartment there was already almost everything people usually need to buy: oil, vinegar, salt, liquid and bar soaps, shower gel, shampoo, toilet paper, napkins, cotton buds, Kleenex tissues, ...

Unfortunately there was no vacuum cleaner, but Amy said I could use hers.
I didn't, because I felt I had already taken too much advantage of her availability.
Nevertheless I should have used it, because the carpets were full of hair.

The lower apartment has nonetheless two huge structural problems, which are unfortunately beyond immediate control of the friendly owners:

1/ it is NOT soundproofed at all. If unluckily there are people above you, on the apartment upstairs, you will ear their slightest movement, even if they try to remain respectful of the neighbourhood...
But you won't oblige them to keep still..
So, even though everyone deserves to spend relaxing and pleasant holidays, we had some very bad and short nights, especially at the end of our stay;

2/ there is a radiator for the whole apartment, so practically the bathroom is NOT heated, even if you keep its door permanently open. 
Be prepared to have a shower in a fresh room! 
Because of the temperature, after a warm shower there will always be full of steam, which can be evacuated only by a small ventilation (there is no window);

3/ on the apartment description, among the amenities, there is "gym".
We didn't seen any piece of equipment. 
The tiny table was very wobbly, due to the irregular floor and to the table's structure itself.  We had to find out how to fix it, in order to have a "stable" meal.

In spite of the material comfort and the nice service we had, I must leave a tepid review, because point 1/ is critical.

I think that the positive reviews have been left by people who didn't have any neighbours upstairs.
The point is that you could stay in the most beautiful place in the world, but, if you cannot have a decent rest and you must sleep even worse than at home, your holidays might turn into a nightmare.

For the good of the future lower apartment tenants, Amy and Jeff should do the necessary to make a soundproofing intervention soon.
