The apartment is nicely furnished and the host very warm and friendly. The location is also very convenient, in a quiet residential street, but right next to the subway station and big shopping facilities and numerous restaurants. For those who prefer to sleep in the dark, the sleep quality could be improved if curtains or blinds were installed to allow making the room a bit darker. For the rest, we felt very much at home.
