    The room was a good size

    I had a pleasant time at Jamie's place! Her apartment is conveniently located a few minutes away from New York City, which is where I always stay, for the accessibility to all that you could possibly ask for... Jamie was very nice and intelligent. We had really interesting conversations on all sorts of random topics! The room was a good size and it comfortably fit two guests, as I had a friend stay with me the first night. The price is a bargain for it'd be hard to find a place as good as this in the same location. Would definitely stay here again next time.

    How's my writing? Only confusing part for me is in bold.

    Re: I had a pleasant time at Victoria's place! Her apartment is conveniently located

    This is the second thread with the same title and, it transpires, it wasn't a good title for either. If you're confused by the words in bold, they should have been the words in the title. The title for this could have been, for example, "The room was a good size".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I tried to change the title but wasn't able to. Can someone look at my paragraph?

    Re: The room was a good size

    I've changed the title of post #1 but it's not possible to change it on the responses. If people click directly on "Reply" under post #1, the response will come up with the new title.

    Re: The room was a good size

    "Someone" is here to help.
    By the way, I think that "anyone" as a pronoun would be better for questions like that. Or is it just another AmE difference?

    As for the bit in bold, I don't see why the present simple tense would be preferable, and there is no special need for "of" either.
