This place is ridiculously spacious by European standards, huge ceilings big rooms. The kitchen in the large apartment is awesome. The small apartment is nice too and would be perfect for a family touring with a couple kids. There were 8 of us total, with two small children. These apartments are so huge we could have easily have fit everyone in just the large apartment, but it was great having both to stretch out in and have space to let the kids sleep in peace. Fixtures are all pretty modern and the kitchens have everything you would need to cook. Other than the space, the best part is the location. Its about a 10 minute walk to the old city wall. Plenty of shops and restaurants close to the apartment. Street parking right out front and also right across from the police station, so it feels very safe. Nice clean neighborhood, just far enough from old city so that its not always bustling. Very accommodating for check in and check out. Overall, perfect choice for anyone who wants a lot of space while still being close to where everything is.
