      Perfect need for 3 bedrooms. I didn’t realize the check in required a code I got and didn’t have WiFi cellular service when I got there so was a bit confusing and had to go find a WiFi place. So took an extra hour to check in.

      I booked this apartment for 6 persons. While the 3 bedrooms were nice and spacious, there were only 4 chairs (and 2 small stools) to use around the table. Enough silverware for only 4 people (for 1 meal). Only 1 small pot and 1 unusable frying pan (completely scratched teflon) made it difficult to prepare any food. The oven was disgusting: Left-over food that was all over the oven trays and smelled terrible when the oven was in use. There was an ant infestation. The dryer did not heat. There were no amenities other than toilet paper. There was no hand soap, dishwasher soap (hand or machine), no paper towels, no tissues, no garbage pail liners, no condiments. The apartment has some potential (other than having only 1 bathroom). If the owner put in just a little money into amenities and keeping up the kitchen, it could be a reasonable place.

      Two side of the coin. On one hand the apartment always responded to me before I got there. By email and phone. The check in was super easy. The trip from HB station is easy just down the 3 tram. Also easy to get to other main locations just from the 3 tram. The place was big. Downside: no air. Washer didn’t work in room but one in basement did. Dryer barely worked. Place seemed beyond outdated. Functional but that was about it

      Could be great, but poorly maintained.

      THe space is good. You get a full apartment. The location is also good. The tram stop is just a few meters from the building. However, the apartment is very run down. The bathroom window curtain was ripped and had a gaping hole. We had to put a towel to avoid being seen from outside. The shower was moldy and rusted. The floors are destroyed. With gaping holes in between boards, and they are very creaky. The furniture in the living room was very dusty and there was a cobweb in a corner. Not even high up by the ceiling, it was at eye level. The area rug in the living room was dirty too. Since we were only there for one night due to a long layover we just closed the door to the living room and didn’t use it. At least the beds were clean and the sheets and towels were fresh. So in conclusion it is a big space that could be great if they just cleaned and maintained it better. For a one night stay it was ok, in the present condition I don’t recommend it for a longer stay.
