We found our apartment to be perfect for 2 adults and 1 child who was in her own bedroom. Everything has been newly done with a clever design for a small place. It had a modern, trendy lounge and mini kitchen with bar counter. It was nice and clean and had its own parking. It was very central.

The friendly Moses received me and promptly made a phone call to try to assist me, seeing that all rooms in the property were free. When his colleague quoted a... More

The location of the apartment was fantastic, right in the middle of the hustle and bustle and on the doorstep of many great restaurants. Beautifully decorated, lovely, clean, fresh linen. A Nespresso coffee machine would have been a bonus. Because of the central location there is a little street noise. No view.

The reception was very friendly. The unit I stayed in was on the second floor. The unit was very nice and clean. It was very convenient to stay here. It is walking distance from the shops and restaurants. Nice and safe too.
