Response from Karim:
Dear Abdulhassib, I am sorry for not providing you a good stay if that is what you are referring to, but I must say that honesty is the policy; you had told me you were bringing 6 other guests with you, and not a total of 8 adults (including you) accompanied by two other children between the ages of 10 and 12, not counting the other infant. Let us say we shouldn't have counted the girls, as you said, but don't you think they do need a place to sleep too? Plus, the idea of cancelling your reservation online and paying me by cash was your idea since the beginning considering that you would take a refund, only that, as you said, the loss was too big for you, so you decided to make a deal between the two. We tried to talk to you as politely as possible, but the fact that you didn't want to accept the situation and considered my telling the truth an offence, doesn't mean I had acted impolitely to any of your mother or grandmother. By the way, Baakline is not 2 hours away from the airport, but 45 minutes, and renting a car for transportation is a necessity to any kind of tourist willing to explore the beauty of this country. You brought 11 people with you, without even telling me, and simply decided to sleep on the couch. Pardon me, but I do think I was more than hospitable. I completed all of your requests and offered you to bring you from the airport too as a token of generousity. I hope I don't get to be put in the same position by other guests, and I doubt I will, because your actions were unfair towards me. I hope I get better reviews from my other guests, because EVERYONE is welcome at my place, and just so you know, it was never a matter of money, but of you not telling me the truth about how many people were staying (Even if it was for no more than 2 days, since I was never there to know how much the extra guests stayed). Anyway, no problem at all. I just hope, and am more than sure, that I never face such a misunderstanding with anyone else again. Karim Salaheddine.
