"We were a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 children below 14 yrs). We loved it! The apartment was very clean, comfortable, fully loaded with all the amenities for a home-from-home stay. The staff went above and beyond to help us when we needed assistance with our little one and came back to the apartment after we'd checked out hours ago."

"The view was absolutely amazing, definitely the highlight of the apartment. The beds were nicely made. Two towels provided for each person. Dishwasher, microwave, hob, fridge&freezer, kettle provided. We got a cleaning half way in our stay and the cleaners did a great job, changed our all bedsheet and towels, and cleared up the kitchen. There was a hairdryer in the bathroom too. Very goot apartment."
