It's a little different because it's an apartment, not a hotel. You have to make your own bed and such. It was nice to have a frig and a living room and kitchen table. The bedroom was fine. The bed was a little low to the ground. Bathroom was a little narrow, but it was fine.

Response from David N, Proprietário at Shining View
Responded Jan 20, 2019
Thanks for your review! We are not an hotel (serviced apartments, yes), and in all our annoucements is clear that we arent. For sure that in the reservation confirmation that is also clear that we dont have any reception! Also if the guest didnt had view its because he rented an apartment without view, its the guest that selects the apartments, not us... Regarding not being able to clean makeup with the towels, we wont make any comments...General good sense wouldnt advice it... Probably the guest should understand that this completely damages the towels! Regards Shining View
