The location is easy to find and easy to reach by underground. The access is super easy with keys locked up in safe. For the safe we got a code. Therefore our very late arrival was not an issue at all. Also our late departure was very convenient as we could stay in the appartment until 2 pm. Great deal! Great recommendation!

The apartment is very comfortable, quiet, warm and well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable visit. We enjoyed exploring the city using the trams which run nearby and connect with the underground. We also ate several times at a friendly local restaurant which was hidden away and Tanja told us about. We would certainly go back and stay again.
