Despite such a central location the apartment is quiet as it is located at the back of the building. Thee owners are delightful, and made us feel very much at home. As made clear in the advert there is no lift, just stairs (80 we counted), which may be an issue for some, but for everyone else I would say this homely apartment is a perfect base to explore the city.

The location was close enough to walk to the main square or river but wasn't in any roads with loud bars. The apartment was lovely and had everything you needed to feel at home, and going away with an adult son it was good that he had a separate en suite bathroom at the other end of the apartment. Thanks Jan and Josephine for helping make our trip a great one.
