It didn't have wifi. But it did have a DVD player at the side of the TV. Overall it was value for money and I'd definitely recommend it & return to the property.

We didn't want to leave. The apartment is placed in a perfect location with lots of restaurants, bars and galleries nearby. The apartment is gorgeous! Everything we need is at your disposal with a pint of milk given on arrival which was very nice! We plan to stay here again many more times in the future! Extremely recommended!
