Hans was a wonderful host to my small travel group. When we arrived he was on site to greet us (even though we were a bit early!) and he provided great suggestions for our week-long stay. The apartment was clean and comfortable and in a great location. We walked pretty much everywhere without too much trouble, and for longer trips we hopped on the metro which was nearby as well. There is a binder that Hans and the other hosts put together in the apartment that is full of useful tips and suggestions for food and activities. And what's more, I felt that I could contact Hans with questions if need be. Our group felt very welcomed. We had a very early flight back home and Hans helped us to figure out arrangements to get to the airport - it was such a relief! This is a great place to stay and Hans and the other hosts were wonderful. I would highly suggest this location.
The apartment has a very good location, close to metro, supermarket, and all those travel highlights. The house is clean, well renovated, we have a wonderful time of stay.
I agree with all the other reviews - Hans and Jose were great, loved their recommendations, the flat was clean and well furnished. BUT it reeked of stale cigarettes. I had to wash absolutely everything as soon as I left as the smell was overwhelming. If you are a smoker I'm sure it would be fine!
