Our apartment had the lowest end Ikea furniture - beds like sleeping on the floor. Shower in main part of apartment didn't drain - had to take a shower quickly so drain wouldn't overflow. Shower in master bedroom was hanging by a screw - took days before it was fixed. Rented phones, ran out of minutes - didn't tell you the phones were limited.
Tours - not run by East Apts - refer you to a travel agent who palms you off to someone else.
No assistance whatsoever. Was there an office to this facility? We couldn't find it.
