We found this owner to be untrustworthy and ended up feeling very cheated and mistreated. Why was this the worst, most disturbing accommodation experience of our lives? For the simple reason that the bedroom in this apartment in located directly above an after hours pub and this made it entirely unsuitable for sleeping. There was no indication of this aspect of the flat in the the description. In our case, we were staying there with a baby and young child (and this was pre-anounced to the flat owner prior to our arrival!) which made the situation even worse. He could have warned us about this but he just did not care.
It was not just a bit of restaurant noise until, say 11 pm. No, this was LOUD voices and blasting techno music with a heavy base pumping through the bed and banging until the morning hours (easily till 3AM). It was impossible to sleep in these conditions. It was extreme and totally indecent. With two young children, the distress and sleep deprivation this caused us was so totally beyond normal, beyond acceptable, beyond decency.
When we expressed this to the owner, he dismissed our complaint as an 'external problem' and said that no one else complained. He did not take responsibility for this at all, and for that we feel absolutely cheated and mistreated. A truly awful, upsetting experience. A case simply worth a lawsuit.
Avoid this apartment as well as its dishonest owner.
