If we had been adults traveling alone, this would have been fine. It was clean enough, air conditioned, a fantastic location (although a bit loud) and a nice, small kitchen. However, we booked a two bedroom apartment, which is great for us since we have two kids 5, and 9. However, you go in the front door and up the stairs and then there is no locked door to the apartment. Each bedroom and the bathroom lock separately. There's just one other apartment above, but the front door doesn't automatically lock.
Which means, you can't just put your kids to bed in one room while you sleep in the other because you either have to lock them in or leave the doors open all night (which, if your upstairs neighbors forget to lock the outside door means anyone could wander in off the streets).
The price was great and if we hadn't had little kids it wouldn't have been a big deal.
One other petty thing--they demanded a passport on check in and kept it to ensure we paid. Why on earth we couldn't just pay when we check in was beyond me. I hate not having control over my own passport.
