8/10 Very good

Ce logement de type airbnb est très bien situé. Il n'y a que 5 espaces de stationnement, donc il faut être chanceux pour avoir une place. Il est possible de se stationner sur la rue, mais c'est souvent plein. Location is pretty good. Parking is limited and it can be hard to fin parking on the street, you have to be lucky.

Firstly, the property is in an excellent location and the property response to concerns was impressive. Secondly, though, there were several concerns, the most serious being the lack of soundproofing. It was difficult to sleep even with the aid of ear plugs. Other concerns related to the scarce parking available even though the ad for the property represents on site parking; the need for an explanation regarding the cable service available for the property and the condition of the shower head and an empty shampoo container (both resolved).

4/10 Fair

Parking was very limited, had to park at other end of the block Loft was very warm, ceiling fan in bedroom was out of balance so unable to use, unable to use floor fan because of only 1 plug-in in bedroom which was behind the bed. Unable to watch TV, showed connection error, called site Superintendent, who said they would come up to fix but never did

3 out of 5 this time sorry.
Hi there im not really the one to complain about things we are happy with ZenLofts and we do recommend others to enjoy the experience. My spouse and i have been there a vouple times in thw last year and plan to go more frequently just to unwind a little from our normal schedules.. everything was swell i only had one complaint.. we had no way of using the T.V. the remote that was left in the room.. only turned off and on.. and i found out mute we basically watched a screensaver all nite. Used our phones to watch movies on wifi... not very romantic. We have made attempts around 8pm to see if someone can fix. And because of that the silence in our room was errie as all we can hear is everyone else TVs which is fine.. its 17th ave sw we didnt go there for quiet but a little volume from our tv would have made a barrier to most other sounds.. Mistakes happen we get it. But to spend 150 to sit in a room and stare at our phones well we could have spent all night at dennys and drank coffee lol. Honestly we will be coming back its perfect for is. I just wish our experience was 5star like the first.. and i put a rrview on there website specifically saying this.. Im giving my experience a 3 out of this time and it would have been A 4 but it seems like no one is concerned of our complaint.. Thank you and i hope to hear from someone very shortly

The pictures are not accurate. If your looking to party this place is ok. Not meant for professionals. Checked in for a 4 night stay - left after 1. Very dark and smells of smoke. Location is great.
