一進門就發現廚房(也是陽台)的地板磚有很多裂痕,紗窗也有很多洞。房東在公寓裡自己重新裝了水系統,水管穿過的牆眼周圍都沒有打掃乾淨,很多灰塵。公寓的通風系統很不好,一進屋就聞到一股霉味,特別是小臥室,牆上的霉斑隨處可見。第一天廚房水池下面漏水,洗碗之後地板上到處都是水。雖然經過溝通之後房東很快安排修好了漏水處但從腐爛的落地木頭櫃子角上可以看到這個問題不是一天兩天了。Most of the tiles on the kitchen floor was broken and all mosquito nets on the windows had tears in them, some big enough to put a fist through. The apartment had some sort of auxiliary water system where the pipes had been drawn through the living room, there was still piles of brick dust below every drilling point. The ventilation on the apartment wasn't great, leaving a mouldy smell in the bedrooms. There was a water leakage in the kitchen when we arrived, covering the kitchen floor when we washed the dishes. The owner DID arrange to have this fixed within a day when we notified him. It looked like the leakage had been long-standing though, as several of the wooden drawers near the floor were rotten through.
房間裡的電路也是房東自己重新做的,所以只有幾個插座板可以用而牆上的插座孔通通都不能用。還有好幾處的電線是暴露在外的,這讓帶著嬰兒的我們很不安心。大臥室的空調還不錯但是對小臥室幾乎起不到任何作用,小臥室裡也因此非常悶熱。再次說明公寓通風很糟糕。衛生間的熱水器也有問題,因為進水的水管有時會進氣 導致水出不來。All power plugs in apartment except one in the living room and the ones in the kitchen were non-functional. Also, there were exposed power cables in several places, which was scary for us as we were traveling with a toddler. The air conditioner in the living room worked very well, but the circulation in the smaller room was not good, leaving it steaming hot. The water mixer in the bathroom was sloppily attached to the piping, meaning that sometimes air would get stuck in the shower head and stop the water.
找到住處和拿鑰匙的過程海比較順利。房東給的路線可以用但因我們臨時決定要步行去住處所以從另一個方向來,如果房東可以提前給出不同的方案並配以圖片也許會更方便住客找到。The key access outside of the apartment was very smooth. The way description was decent, but could have included a description of how to walk there, not just how to take the bus there.
附近環境很好,乘車散步都很方便,買水果菜也方便,附近有很多便利店,門口一個很好的書店,蛋糕店及小飯店等等。The area was nice, with access to buses, plenty of fruit vendors, a small convenience store, a great book store, several bakeries and restaurants.
總的來說公寓並非不能住,我們在的幾天還是在這裡簡單的熱了菜,睡了覺的,周邊環境和位置也很滿意,但性價比比較低,感覺以這樣三星級酒店的價錢起碼應該乾淨安全方便。希望房東可以改進。The apartment was not unliveable, we could cook, eat and sleep there, and the surrounding area was very nice. However, for this kind of money, which is basically what you would pay for a decent hotel, you expect things to be somewhat clean and certainly not broken.
