By far ... The most disturbing experience on Airbnb .
First let me begin by saying that the photos are as photoshopped as one can get . The reality is totally different . That is a very old, dirty , grissy ,noting looks like in the pictures .
The area is nice as you walk straight into lots of cafes and bars but very noisy if you want to rest.
I have never met Alberto but upon arrival he has organized a lady to come hand me the keys, she has spent 3 minutes showing me what is where and left.
I have spent very little of the month in that flat for it wasn't a pleasant experience being there . Other Swiss people that heard of the price I paid for a month there said that this is hilarious.
The sheets and towels were old but most important were NOT ENOUGH for the period of one month - he never provided cleaning whatsoever for one entire month and complained the towels were dirty after I left ?!how does he expect will a towel look after a month use?! , I was doing my laundery in the city for big money (1piece-8chf), also for those that don't know in Zurich you need special bags to throw the garbage , since he did not provide them , I have bought some black garbage bags and put everything there . That turned out into a scandal after I left . He never being there , just by the words of the lady I met in the begging is asking me 600 chf on top on what I paid for that flat !
This is the crazy insane thing - I
Have to Ask him for refund , not the other way around .
there's no furniture , a tiny very old couch that needs to be washed and so does everything there .
I didn't touch the tv because it wasn't working and was from another century and it gets crazier - he accuses me I stole his plates or whatever from kitchen .. Not only I didn't steal them .. I used them very few times , everything was dirty and old.
All in all a terrible experience, he took the liberty to accuse me of things I didn't do while he wasn't ever even here .
For that amount of money I could have stayed in a hotel .
Once in a while sadly this type of experiences happen and although I dislike being in this situation it's my responsibility to lighten this up for other people looking to rent this flat .
All the best to each of you and I hope this helps make a wiser decision .
