Great communication even before we left the UK, good information about the local area and how to get to the apartment. We had high expectations as we'd read good reviews online and we were not disappointed. The owner met us and explained where everything was and stressed that if we needed anything he was on hand to help.
We LOVED the apartment. It was just our taste in decor and style and we instantly felt at home. The owner supplied an ipod docking station for our entertainment. There was a bottle of wine and beer in the fridge on arrival. The location is fantastic. Situated on one of the main canals with cafes and local shops round the corner for supplies. The main shopping district is about 6 or 7 mins walk away. So all that is to offer in the city centre is minutes from your door.
The best part was that you felt like a local. The apartment felt like home. We settled in straight away. No keys on reception and breakfast buffet for us. We either made our own or were out straight away to the tempting local cafes.
The owner was quick to point out that he was updating the apartment with new beds and paint but we were thrilled with it as it was.
The only question is how soon can we book again?
