A group of us stayed here in two apartments, which was really handy, as one door separated us making it into one large one. We found the outside of the apartment block was grubby, and the signage was pretty poor and not very welcoming. When we arrived we rang the lady and she arrived a little while after. She didnt speak English very well, but I guess once we were able to get codes for access etc then we were happy enough. The apt was kitted out with cutlery and cups etc, it was missing a kettle, it didn't have a coffee maker. We really liked the look of the apartment, really funky. The electricity went in the other ladies apartment (in our group), which was a little annoying for showers, we rang the owner and she rectified it. We also found the toilet didn't flush very well, other times it did. The bed was really comfy with extra duvets if needed. In general we were pretty happy with it, as it was pretty close to restaurants, bars, Cathedral and other attractions. The cost was so reasonable.
