  • 6.0.Good

    Good place but very noisy neighbours

    The apartment was very nice. Very well located but the neighbour has a surround sound system and we could hear the movie or game that they were playing or watching both evenings that we were there. The whole house was shaking and we could even hear the voices in the movies. The kitchen has the bare minimum but is functional.

    Excelente apartamento.

    El apartamento está genial para 4 personas. Las habitaciones no son muy grandes pero cada una tiene su baño. Estuvimos muy cómodos. Hay opciones de aparcamiento en los alrededores, todo de pago. Se puede ir caminando a los lugares de interés.
