I have stayed in B&Bs in other parts of the world but this has been by far the worst experience. Although I was there for only 4 days, it felt like an excruciating 4 days because of the host.
Firstly, the host placed her dog in the kitchen during the day time and added a barrier at the kitchen doorway to discourage me from using her kitchen. She even warned me not to be friendly to the dog!
On the second day, the host was displeased that she found hair in the bath-tub. She specifically told me that "your hair is falling out" and subsequently told me to clean up the bath-tub after use. I was too shocked for words when I heard her say that. Talk about hospitality!
On the third night, I had an emergency medical condition during the night and needed to get to the nearest Emergency Room. I told her about my problem and asked if she could call a cab for me as it was already past 12:00 midnight. She said,"We don't call for cabs in New York at night." I sensed that she was obviously not willing to help and asked her to write me the address of the nearest hospital. At that point, she actually said, "It's kind of late now. Can I look it up and give you the address tomorrow morning?" I was stunned beyond words by the cold-heartedness of this person. Then she changed her mind and said, "Oh, I think I'd better give it to you now. I need to go out really early tomorrow morning." She scribbled the address on a piece of paper and left the room.
On this fateful night when I most needed to use the shower, I saw an officious printed note left on my bed by her. She duly informed me that the shower was out of order and there was no suggestion of an alternative solution to the problem. After I came back and contacted City Sonnet, they told me they could not do anything to compensate me.
I would definitely not recommend this B&B to anyone.
