“Excellent location, really helpful staff - steep stairs”

This apartment is in a perfect location. The arrangements/staff were seamless - super. Be aware there are steep stairs, so if there are any doubts about ability to get up them be cautious. We absolutely knew about them before booking, but were not quite prepared for them to be honest. If you are totally fit and well without any knee/back problems you'll have no problems (and it'll keep you fit!).

“Great location, rest is just okay”
Reviewed 14 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The location is great! Two metro stops are very close to the apartment, and lots of pubs, restaurants and stores within a 5 minute walk. There is a gelateria just down the street that is phenomenal. The apartment was clean and key pick up was easy using a lock box. That's the good.

Now for the bad, communication could have been better. I had a few questions before checking in and it took a while to get a response and not overly friendly either. Also, five of us stayed there and despite charging us for the extra bed they did not provide enough toilet paper as we ran out and had to buy. Also the Wi-Fi codes provided did not work. Funny thing, is we were provided one code by email but the manual in the apartment had a different code. Didn't matter as neither worked. I called the office once and they did not answer. I didn't want to waste any more international minutes trying to reach them so luckily many restaurants (including the gelateria) offer free Wi-Fi. The apartment is on the third floor and yes it was painful lugging our luggage up all those steps, but even with no luggage, the steps are very steep so after spending all day sightseeing and walking around some may not be up for walking up those steps. The clothes washer does not dry and no detergent was provided so we didn't bother with it. The shower is TINY and the sink is even smaller. It's impossible to wash your face without splashing water all over the floor.

Other tips: There is quite a bit of noise in the neighborhood from crowds gathered to see street performers to pub goers which on one night were chanting until 6am. Not terribly loud if you close the windows but might be an issue for some. Our deposit was refunded as agreed.

Overall I would probably look for another apartment in this area but would stay here again if nothing better was available.
