Despite being slightly further out of centre than some we looked at, the apartment was easy to get to by tram or underground and was as seen in the picture ( although not the picture attached to this review!!)

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      Loved the apartment but it lacked a few minor things. The apartment needs containers that can be used in the microwave. Also the quality of the towels and quantity is not up to the same standard as the accommodation otherwise I would rate it 5 stars. The apartment also lacks a clothes dryer. What is also inconvenient is a 4.00pm check-in.
