First off, I can only agree with others that Marius was a fabulous host. He knew every little detail of the city, helped us maximize each day, made sure we got to see all the sights and even told us top-secret local places for partying. Best host ever.
Marius has several apartments in the area, not just the one you see in the pictures. The set-up of the apartment we were in was pretty chaotic. Six people total (2 rooms), one small bathroom with poor plumbing, living room and kitchen combined, thin walls. Each morning we were awakened by 8:30 am to various people in the living room (Alex, Marius, Mario, a random man who needed a plug adaptor, Marius´ mom, another woman...). Every day somehow there were always more and more people in our apartment, which meant you walked through a crowd each morning just to go pee! It also made you wonder how many people have keys to your living space... That was a downside to the stay.
The location of the apartment however was great. You did have to take public transportation but it was easy, fast and inexpensive. You could reach all the sights and there was local nightlife within walking distance. Overall, good stay - just be prepared for some Roman-style chaos =)
