The place was clean and quiet. There is access to a free washer...

Gista is a a great apartment within walking distance to everything in the city centre, and the airport is around 2km away. The apartments were very clean, and have cable tv. There is information about the surroundings in the apartment and a map. Make sure the owner know's what time you arrive.
