The staircase to the upstairs bedrooms is incredibly narrow and steep however so a little tricky with an adventurous one year old toddler, but otherwise we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Recommended.

We were met at the apartment on arrival and the apartment itself was pretty much perfect . It was really comfortable and had everything you need , home from home .the apartment is very central for the old town , shops and restaurants
