Negative Reviews

Internal and external steps

Guests report that there are steps leading up to the reception area from the street as well as further steps to reach the apartments. There are no handrails in place so this may present a problem for less mobile people.

Internal noise can be a problem

A number of reviews indicate that noise from adjacent apartments can be a problem. This may indicate that internal soundproofing could be improved.

May find beds small

Previous guests have reported that the beds in these apartments are comfortable but on the small size. They are only doubles as opposed to king size and appear to be small doubles at that.
