For moments, Simeón was friendly and helpful but unfortunately, even if I am always friendly and diplomatic dealing with people, he had moments that made me feel bad and stupid talking to me in a kind of cold, intolerant, super logical, non-diplomatic, half-arrogant and sometimes even ironic way.
He also insisted several times in knowing where I was going after leaving his flat, which I did not like. I told him at the end where I was going as I was still in his flat and I did not want any kind of confrontation or tension, but I am also a very private person and in the same way I respect others privacy, I expected mine to be respected. I personally found the insisting messages asking me where I was moving a little disturbing.
One of the most important things for me here was that, at the beginning, Simeón told me that there was a woman in the flat and later, once I paid and we were on the way to the flat with all my stuff on his car, he told me that also her ~10 year old kid lives there but that is not there all the time. I found that very dishonest as he knew that I was looking for a flat that is quiet most of the time and I wanted to live only with adults, but as I paid and due to the situation with all my suitcases on his car, with no other place to go and all that, I had to deal with it I like it or not as I paid a month (when you pay a month, you cannot get refund, not sure if is an airbnb rule or a rule set by the host but it is what it is). Knowing that there is a kid in advance, I would not have rented the room as my intention was to study and relax, which with the kid was not possible sometimes plus, the kid was there almost every day (again very different to what I was told).
I expected to be told from the very beginning that there was also a kid there. I felt cheated.
There were also a few issues with the cleaning like having to clean the place a bit when I arrived as desk and others were dusty and with the woman living there, we cleaned the living room sofa pillows and cover as they were sticky and dirty. Not nice considering I paid good money as cleaning fee. I also had to spend time to make WIFI to get better to the rooms as the signal was very poor.
Apart from the mentioned above, flat, neighbors and the area are decently good, and in fairness, even Simeón for moments was helpful and offered me flexibility to check out and things like that.
Unfortunately, the moments of unfriendliness and dishonesty that I mentioned from Simeón eclipsed the good gestures and moments that he had with me.
