Agree with all the bad reviews of the property.
Unfortunately, we didn’t pay enough attention to them and to the arguments and the tone of the owner’s response to one of the reviewers.
Also, the description of the property was changed when we arrived, found very steep stairs and started to complaint.
To prove it, I am sending two links to the property webpage.
The first link is the current version of the webpage:
It has mention of steep Dutch stairs - "The front stair is Dutch (and steep), the rear stair is a standard build and easy to traverse."
The second link is to the cashed version of the same webpage dated by Aug 12, 2016.
It doesn't have any mention of steep Dutch stairs:
We booked that property on July 29, 2016. At that time there was no mention of any stairs.(My wife has a problem with her back and we wouldn't book such apartment.)
We arrived on Aug 13, 2016. The description of the property was changed on Aug 12 or on Aug 13, when we arrived and started complaining.
There is no way we knew about Dutch steep stairs before arrival.
I made a local copy of the cached webpage. However, please, check the cached version of the webpage (using the above link) as soon as possible.
What do you think about all this?
Older, large size apartment in an OK, quiet neighborhood. Good value if you are comfortable with minor problems, like lack of counter space in the small bathroom. The October tree colors around Brown University are wonderful, as can be seen at www.vansloan.shutterfly.com (October 2015 album).
Positives - location, hot water, a/c. Negatives - the toilet wasn't secured, shower faucet comes off in your hand, no washcloths/handtowels, stained mattress pad, overused mattress that "rolled" to the middle. The building is old and shows it by "soft" spots in the flooring particularly by the shower. Esthetically, ceiling needed to be repaired particularly in bathroom and painting needed to be completed. Due to the height and steepness of the inner steps a hand rail from the door would be beneficial.
When our cab driver dropped us off he was surprised we were staying in the area. We were expecting a quaint little house, but found a house in need of repairs. The linens that were provided were clean, but the existing comforters were soiled and we had to go without. There is a hole in the ceiling above the shower that allows the third floor to see down, and mouse excriment in the bathroom also. We knew not to have high expectations as the price was lower, but there was a lot of neighborhood noises late into the night and we definitely didn't get a good sleep at all. We did walk to the convention centre (only during daylight hours however- we would NOT walk around the area in the evening) and there are a lot of restaurants around. Not a place I would stay at again.
I thoroughly enjoyed this stay. I was attending a convention at the RICC, and this apartment was a nice walk from the center. I had been a little concerned about AC, but the room AC worked fine! I enjoyed the walk into downtown, for restaurants, shopping and events, and over to College Hill to see the beautiful old houses.
Most places I have stayed I don't have a lot of interaction with the neighbors, but here, I had a few nice chats with the folks around as I was coming and going--including their advice on where to buy milk (cross the school parking lot and turn left--past Dunkin Donuts :-).
The owner was very responsive in advance and during the stay. The toilet seemed a bit slow, and she suggested waiting until after my stay to take care of it, but would have had someone there if needed. the apartment was clean and well-maintained, easy to get to.
