: This was an awesome location! The apartment itself was super and a neat place to stay - especially if you're having an extended stay and need a kitchen (theirs is fully stocked, with a full size refrigerator). It is well decorated and the bed is a king size and up a neat loft. I loved having cable too - since at home I am an internet subscription only kind of person. I would definitely stay here again.
: I'm not totally sure why this property is listed on booking.com. It is much more of an AirBNB sort of situation. I didn't totally get that beforehand, because although I was told the room wouldn't be ready until 3:00 pm (like all hotels), I assumed there was a front desk or something like a regular hotel where we could check our bags. So of course, we lugged our bags up to the address only to find we couldn't even enter because it was a typical city apartment that you can't even enter without a key. I tried to call the host, but (I found out later when we met up) that her phone wasn't working. So we wandered around the city until I got a call from her, when we then picked a time when we would meet her in front of the building to go up to the room and get the key. There's nothing wrong with this, of course, but I wish this logistical situation could have been figured out before I got to a foreign country and had to pay extra to use my cell phone. I love AirBNB's, so it's super fun doing travel this way, but I was led to believe this would be a regular hotel set up, and it is not. That being said, the host was lovely and I felt bad for being short with her, but I did not have my expectations managed correctly.
