This was not our choice of apartment the originally booked apartment had some problem with the hot water so this was offered as replacement.
This looks a very nice apartment but sadly as other reviews state it is extremely noisy mainly because it's on the ground floor and it only has single glazing so everyone walking passed sounds like they are in the room with you also the traffic outside as its a busy little street with lots of bars etc close by so a lot of noise from people coming and going at all hours of the night and many offices very nearby so you hear everyone going to work in the early morning. There also seems to be little soundproofing between the floors so you can hear every foot step taken by the apartment above even when they visit the bathroom in the middle of the night!!! One other irritating noise again mentioned in other reviews is the outside entry gate which is attached to the outside wall of the ground floor bedroom it clangs shut with an huge bang most times people enter or leave the building which is especially annoying in the early hours!!!
There were a few cleanliness issues which you would not expect from a superior apartment and could be easily fixed.
Although this was not our preferred location the apartment was in good location for getting around and plenty of shops, cafes close by.
If it was not for the noise and lack of sleep I would have given this apartment a better review, perhaps if we had an apartment on a higher floor the noise would probably not be so bad.
