We stayed at this apartment for 9 days toward the end of the December. Location-wise, it is close to all the tourist sites (with 5-15 mins walking distance, depending on what you want to see), as well as restaurants, grocery stores, mini markets and money changers which are all around the block or two. It is also situated in a quieter are and within a newly renovated building, equipped with modern amenities. Safety and comfort is definitely not an issue especially when access is only through a digital security door. Underground Metro is also about a 5-minute walk away if you want to venture farther than the town center. The Palladium shopping mall is also conveniently located within the same distance as the Metro (fyi, we liked the Albert grocery store located at the basement of the Palladium).
The apartment itself is exactly as how it was advertized, with hi speed wifi, more than adequate facilities, and TV with satellite channels for entertainment. Since we stayed for more than a week, Kate had thoughtfully ensured that we also had enough towels and linens in case we need to change them.
In terms of communication, we had no problems at all in making all the arrangements with Kate as she is very responsive, accommodating, and is generous in giving us all the information we needed to make a decision. In addition, she is always contactable in case we needed help (which we did toward the end and she had sorted it out for us!). Even though she couldn't personally meet with us upon our arrival, she had her colleague help us with our check-in.
We do recommend this apartment if you want to be just a little bit away from the busy, and highly touristy old town center but still within its reach.
