There were 5 of us staying in 2F, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms.
Entry was push button so no key to pick up, this worked really well as we could go off in different directions and not worry about who had the key.
The apartment proved to be tired looking with a coule of missing rails from the stair case and knocks and scuffs everywhere but it was very clean and the carpets look quite new.
We loved the quirky way it was laid out with steps and rooms going off in odd directions.
The kitchen was full of all the pots and pans you would need for feeding a family, there's also a dishwasher.
There is no tourist information which would have been a good touch, advice on local supermarkets and restaraunts, that sort of thing.
Location is excellent and we were able to walk everywhere. We would deffinately stay again.
There is a lift but it looks like another apartment door so it's easy to miss it.
The whole apartment looks to be made out of just one very large original room and the wall between one bedroom and the sitting room is about 7 foot high in a 4 ft high room so open at the top.
Then there are 2 more bedrooms on a mezzanine floor that look out over the sitting room and lower bedroom. This didn't worry us as we are all family but I can see it might concern some people.
