Brian was easy to work with. I arrived at the apartment and Brian was already there. We went up the to the apartment together. The elevator was broken so we had to take the stairs. It's on the 4th floor of the building.
Once entered, I noticed an old building smell (The building is indeed really old). It was distracting but not terrible. Brian went over the details about the apartment (Wifi, checkout process..etc) and then left. The check-in process was smooth.
I didn't stay long as I had to head back to the office right after. After a stressful day at work, I went back to the apartment and was greeted by the still-not-working elevator. I dragged myself up the stairs and again was greeted by the unpleasant smell... It seemed to have gotten worse at night... so I opened all the windows I can find in the unit. That seemed to help a bit.
I took a shower and that's when I noticed the towels weren't fresh... It had that smell of being in a drawer for a long time... I was like whatever I am tired I just want to shower and sleep. As I entered the bedroom, I noticed an unpleasant smell... it was like the smell in the locker room... I got onto the bed and again noticed the sheets weren't fresh and had a unpleasant smell. Frustrated, I texted Brian and he assured me the towels and sheets were washed, but they were put into a drawer for a couple days... he suggested me to use febreze... =_=|||
The rest of the stay involved being woken up in the middle of the night by police/fire truck sirens, car alarms, people yelling/talking on the street and people walking heavily from upstairs. The heat doesn't work despite multiple tries... maybe I just didn't know how to operate a radiator.
On the flip side, it does have a good location. You can walk anywhere pretty quickly. The apartment is also pretty sizable and well equipped. Brian is nice and easy to work with...
