“Great location, nice apartment!”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We got off to a rocky start--couldn't find the apartment and the phone number on Trip Advisor for contact person was one digit off so we couldn't reach her. Ourr GPS took us to the street but the address wasn't in sequence with where we were. We finally hound it with the help of a young woman I found walking who knew where it was. Then with the help on someone sitting in front of building, helped us "ring" the apartment and HOORAY! Lina was there waiting for us even tho we hadn't been able to call with arrival time. It got much better from there! Lina is helpful with info about restaurants, how to walk to town center, etc. and has a lot of brochures etc. in apartment. We did call her for help on 2 occassions and reached her immediately, first item she came to apartment and addressed; second--how to contact a cab company--she didn't have number but suggested that they sit withing sight of apartment. Apartment was nice, and very clean. It could use some updating: shag area rugs, bedspreads, slip covers etc. in old colors ( one bedroom has orange bedspread, orange shag area rug, for example). We felt that a few of the artificial floral arrangements were old and dusty but Lilna assured me that one I pointed out was new. Could have used instructions for coffee maker; we resorted to instant packets we had with us. As has been mentioned before, the beds are really hard. However, all in all, I would recommend the apartment; it was very convenient, secure, has lovely quality wooden French doors, and has the amenities I required for a pleasant stay. Lina is certainly very responsive and helpful. We took a cab back to apartment twice and both times the drivers took us to the area but asked where it was so perhaps a more detailled map of the immediate area would help.

The apartment is clean and ample, and the indoor parking is convenient for those having a car. The kitchen needs updating: the dishwasher worked but did not clean the dishes and all of the appliances, even the microwave, look to be 30 years old and barely function. The beds were hard as rock. The owner did provide plenty of towels and extra blankets. The location was good: close enough to the center to walk but also on the metro line.

On the first night of our stay we were locked out of the apartment because, apparently, one was not supposed to leave the spare key on the inside of the door as this would prevent you from unlocking it from the outside. This information should've been shared with us as this type of door mechanism is not common. When we called the owner, she informed us that we would need to call a locksmith at our own expense. I would suggest in the future she spend less time pressuring new guests to visit her friend's restaurants and more time explaining pertinent information such as this.
