We agreed to pay just over €1000 when we first booked for 4 people for 6 nights .. only to arrive and discover that it was actually €1340, our beds were not made and the sheets and duvets did not match at all. The bed sheets even had holes in them and smelled disgusting.
The apartment has exteremly high stairs up to the front door and the spiral staircase inside is about to clapse .. after staying there for 3 nights we we're told that 4 other guys were moving into the room across from ours in the apartment. The guys were alright but spoke hardly any english so it was awkward at first. However it could have been a messy situation if we didn't get on with the guys .. We had to share our living room and kitchen space and 8 people had 1 toilet to use which is absolutely horrendous!
The apartment has no reception and is run by a woman called Kate who appears on a moped 10 mins after you fone her waiting outside. Kate, who comes across as nice and sweet at first is far from it! .. she just randomly appeared at times and gave us a right ear bashing for not doing the dishes! we had been in the apartment for 48 hours and gave her €335 each and she was raging for not having done a few dishes! she spoke to us like children and made us feel guilty .. who the [---] does she think she is? walking in and out whenever she felt like it to check up on us .. after paying that sort of cash and having no cleaners etc.. I think a few dirty dishes is no big deal as long as everything is sorted and just as we found it. We also seen a few mice in the kitchen.
On our last day she had the cheek to refuse our deposit and we lost out on €25 each. When we arrived she said the deposit was for the room key only and then she said we lost it because we had visitors in.. It wasn't that when the other 4 guys we're having a new year party!
Even though this is a negative review the apartment has so much potiental .. it is in the best possible location, everything on doorstep .. coffeeshop downstairs, supermarket round the corner and a mcdonalds 200 metres away. The only thing that lets this place down is the OWNER and the lack of HYGIENE !
GET IT SORTED STARGATE AND CHILL OUT KATE !
