Diarmuid, the rental agent, was great! He was very helpful and answered questions immediately by text. The apartment was clean and modern (but no fireplace), well appointed, quiet, and in a great location (7-10 min. moderate uphill walk to the train station, grocery store, restaurants, and retail shopping). The kitchen was fairly well outfitted, not gourmet but contained most anything you would need to prepare a meal. Having 2 bathrooms was very nice. There were 2 negatives in my opinion: 1st, the master bedroom bed made loud noises with any movement whatsoever and getting a good night's sleep was very difficult. The thin mattress sits directly on wooded slats and is about as thick as a futon cushion (IKEA special). 2nd, the coin-op laundry in the building was hard to operate even with instructions written in English. We spent about $20 trying to get two loads of clothes dry and ended up hanging them overnight in the laundry room, and then air-drying them for another day in the apartment. So think twice about packing light and washing clothes as we did. Overall you can't beat the location and the personalized rental service- hopefully the owner will purchase a new master bed.
