This very beautiful apartment was lacking in some basic practical amenities. For example, the elegant bathtub in the master bathroom was very difficult to use--there was no way to take a bath or shower, but rather, just an awkward spray handle, which you had to try to hold while soaping yourself off (with soap we had to buy ourselves and that had no soap dish or anywhere near the tub to put it down.) We wound up using one of the two shower stalls in the other bedrooms. We were unhappily surprised by the lack of toilet paper, hand soap, garbage bags, paper filters for the coffeemaker and other items one might reasonably expect to find in a "luxury" rental. While the apartment has some nice appliances--ie. microwave, dishwasher and washer/drier--there were no instructions of any kind on how to use them, so we fumbled around and took our best guess. Also, two of the beds are mattresses placed on oversized platforms that create a sort of lip with sharp edges....my elderly mother badly bruised her shin on one of them. Those platforms are needlessly dangerous. At one point, the lady who lives directly below us banged on our door, loudly complaining about the noise made by the sliding doors from the master bedroom to its adjoining bathroom, which keeps her up at night. I found myself wishing that the apartment was a little less beautiful and a lot more functional.
