Reviewed 25 July 2015 via mobile

Very nice and well furnished apartment. A taxi waited for us at the airport. We arrived at midnight and it was all very well organized. The apartment was well equipped, two bedrooms. Good beds. No noise in the streets as some comments mentioned. Breakfast was nice. Staff is very helpful!

This place is over-rated. It is tired and dated and really needs an overhaul in terms of the interior i.e. Beds, decor, bathroom, kitchenette as well as the staff. It is grubby, poorly run and grotty. With no air conditioning it is always nice to leave the windows and doors open - well not here. The roads are noisy 24/7....
