The appartment was clean, and situated in quiet surroundings. The beds are good, even though one of the rooms are rather small for adults. The kitchen is well equiepped. It was very nice with the dish washer. The air conditioner was perfect and quiet in all the rooms. The terrace is quite big, and has both sun and shade. The internet also worked fine.
