We stayed 4 nights at The Flat, also owned/run by Liz, as the Patio was booked. 1930s building with considerable charm, small but convenient "flat" consisting of dining room, 3 bedrooms (we only used one), small kitchen, bathroom, storage room. Liz and her husband very helpful and welcoming. Somewhat disorganized, though--we had asked for a hair dryer in advance but none was in the flat and so had to walk the 2 blocks to The Patio to get one. Had received no instructions on how to get into the building where the Patio was, or which apartment to ring for so ended up going up 5 flights and knocking on the wrong door. Nice lady came downstairs with me and took me directly back to the Patio. Also--cooktop didn't work and so had to walk back to The Patio for instructions on that (there was a separate switch to flip to turn it on).
No air conditioning, but the fans are helpful. Very noisy fans when on any speed but low. Liked the spaciousness of having several rooms and the convenience and cost-savings of being able to buy food and cook it. Well stocked with pans, dishes, etc. It bothered me that the floors were a bit dirty--especially in the kitchen. But overall a good place , convenient to metro stops, and would stay there again.More
