The one bedroom appartment we were allocated was on the second floor facing the same street as the entrance. We enjoyed the location,close to the shops and museums, the appartment was clean and cooking facilities adequate , covering the simple basics. The staff were always helpful and friendly and the car which they recommended from and to the airport was a good service.
We knew from previous reviews it was going to be noisy and noted managements previous comments, repeated to me after the first night, words to the effect of what can you expect you are in the centre of the city. The noise started about 10pm each night and went through until 5 or 6 am ! Most of it came from a bar 15 mtrs diagonally across from the front door , but some from further down the street. Each night we were there a guy stood outside the front entrance to the appartments handing our fliers for one of the bars-- 2 for the price of one drinks vouchers.His presence contributed to the excessive noise levels, which from my experience of over 30 yrs of travel,, is at a much higher level than any other central city location in which I've stayed. I resorted to ear plugs in the end with some moderate success.But because the windows had to be kept closed the room became quiet stuffy. Would I go back? Probably not.
The other small irritant was there was no English language TV-- so no news for a week!!
