The apartment was incredibly well equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, nespresso coffee maker, modern tv, board games and even a chess board! We're a family of 4 with 2 children aged 7 and 9 and the 2 double beds were the most comfortable we've stayed in away from our own home. I'd thoroughly recommend.
