Stylish yet comfortable and the host was very accommodating. The apartment was so close to all the landmarks and shops we didn't take a tram/train anywhere. Beautiful location and very scenic. Would very happily stay in this apartment again.

The apartment is on one of the cross streets between two canals with lots of vintage and new boutique shops, cafes and restaurants all around. Beautifully decorated and furnished, it had a lovely big sitting room and if you wanted to eat at home, a fantastic big dining room with a large table. Two good sized bedrooms upstairs; the double room had a great roof terrace that backed on to the central space at the back of all the surrounding apartments and the second bedroom with two single beds was at the front with a shared bathroom in-between. We were two single parents travelling with our 11 year olds so one adult had the front bedroom with the single beds - if you're not used to living in a central city location or are a light sleeper this bedroom was quite noisy until late as the room looked out over the street and there are also bars/restaurants below. It had a good sized kitchen, was all immaculately clean and had everything you might need either for a long or short stay. The apartment has a bike shop located just downstairs so very easy to rent bikes - we rented them for two days and cycled all over the city with our two 11 year olds - we all loved it and everything was very easily reached from our apartment. Mike, our host, was great - always answered e-mails quickly, gave really helpful advice, sent us apartment and local tips and made us feel very welcome when we arrived. We would highly recommend it and would love to stay again!
