Great location/good property

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is in a great location. Like most other reviews, the apartment is clean and in a good neighborhood. There are some maintenance issues that should have already been taken care before we arrived but were not. For example, the kitchen faucet was not properly secure. Luckily I noticed this before Alex finished our move-in inspection, so I wasn't charged with repairing it. Unfortunately, I did not notice that the upstairs toilet flushing mechanism was not properly secured, and I was charged 50 euros for replacing that. Additionally, Alex told me he would get some dishwasher tablets and washing machine soap, but I had to follow up with him to get that. That was annoying. Most importantly, the upstairs bedroom and bathroom have VERY low ceilings. I would not recommend anyone staying up there unless you are petite (I am 5'10" and my husband is 6'3"), as we had to keep in a crouched position when we were up there. With that said, the downstairs bedroom and family room were nice to hang out in.

Owner's Response: Dear Laurie, We are very happy you enjoyed our home. We would only like to make you know that we charged you the fix of the toilet because it was fine when you arrived and was broken when you left, we try to check if everything is fine when somebody leaves, in order not to trouble our new guests arriving. Dishwasher and washing soap, I think we are not oblied to provide but we made it just the following day when you asked us for it. We bought and brought both soap and tablets free of charge. Regarding the ceilings, it is true that are low in the highest floor of the house, this, you can read it and see it in our pictures, as it is a penthosue with gabled roof. We thank you very much for choosing us and for your comments that always make us improve.

great apartment

  • 4 of 5

loved the apartment, awesome turkish bath, great customer service but my only complaint is that the first day we arrived it had a bad smell, which went away after a few hours. But the owners were really attentive and responsive

Great location, with seclusion and luxury

  • 5 of 5

My son said "best vacation house ever!!" He loved the elevator and twisty path through the building, the multiple levels to claim his own space, and the very high end furnishings. A great family property with privacy for each member of the family. The central location allowed for quick access to restaurants, historical sites and the Metro for day trips. The secluded spot in the building meant we were sheltered from the bustle of the city. Alejandro was available if we needed any assistance. Thank you for a lovely stay!
