Not what was expected

  • 2 of 5

The photos are old and only resemble the actual apartment, particularly the kitchen, which is small. First showers for most of us, water all over the floor due to curtain only which did not prevent overflow. I wiped floor with towel and it came up black due to mold. The showers are quite small. Smelled mold/mildew upon entering the apartment. Two showers with modern corner type shower, both of which had unsightly mildew stains around the bottom. We were there with children, so can not recommend the cleanliness. The rep was surly, loud, and finally toned down a bit. The washer is in a "room" which has partial roof only. Not sure how an electric service can work in wet conditions but luckily we did not have problem with it. No dryer. The AC worked well, thankfully, which helped with the odor. There were plenty of dishes for coffee, meals.

The beds are all old and not very comfortable. Plenty of blankets.

Overall did not feel the place was clean, but there was someone who cleaned the outer hall each morning. The outer door, unfortunately, slammed every time someone entered or exited. Three streets lead up to the apt. street. Facing out, to the right, lots of pedestrians, middle street, varying numbers of males at varying times, to the left, never noticed any pedestrians. Store fairly close. Transfer cars/taxis have a difficult time getting into this street.

Rented this partly for the outside patio, which is overgrown and could use some attention. Nice fish pond with goldfish.

Would not stay in this area, nor this apartment, again.

I did NOT state I loved it. Will not allow me to fix that.

The pictures of this property do not do it justice. It is spacious, comfortable and has a fabulous location (quick walk to dozens of restaurants, a grocery store, the major sights). We wish we had stayed longer. Highly recommend this property to those traveling in a group. We were 6 adults and 3 teen boys, had plenty of space to spread out and enjoy our selves. I wouldn't hesitate to book this apartment.
