The apartment is really great, very spacious, modern, well furnished and equipped. We really liked it. It was very hot when we were there so having fans in the bedrooms was much appreciated! Very convenient to have the U Bahn stop directly opposite, and close enough to the centre to walk everywhere. Communication with the owner was great. Only downsides - a lot of stairs to climb! And there were a lot of men hanging around outside - there wasn't any problem but I think I might have felt anxious if I'd been going out alone at night.

There is nothing missing to have a wonderful holidays. Full equipped the house is big with very generous size bedrooms and very comfortable dining room and kitchen for 8 to 10 people. There are just 2 bathroom but nothing that can't be deal with.
