The apartment was easy to walk to from the bus station and was in a very central location to walk around the old city. Very good access into the apartment with key pads rather than keys. This meant any of our group of four could come and go independently.

The airport buses stop just outside so it is really easy to get to and from the airport - bus number 22 or minibus 222. There was also a very good supermarket just over the road - Stockmans. The apartment was clean and tidy, well lit, well equipped, bright and spacious. There was some traffic noise but that is inevitable given the central location. There was no noise or disturbance from neighbouring flats. The manager met us at the flat to show us around and was able to answer queries. The apartment was very secure - it felt very safe there. The shower room was lovely - plentiful hot water. On the negative side, towels were provided but we were only given one large towel each - no hand towel or bath mat. The washing machine didn't work but all other equipment was fine. There was only one wine glass and no large dinner plates but as we ate out a lot it didn't really matter to us. We stayed there for 5 nights.
