There isn't anything good to say about this accomodation, They need to clean it from top to bottom, chuck all the bedding, and get better pest control.

Pros: The staff were very helpful and flexible, responding courteously to a number of requests.
Cons: The apartment was clean but the decor and furniture a bit old and tired. This made the soft furnishings feel unclean. A modest spruce up is needed.
Value: Affordable; Service: Go the extra mile; Cleanliness: Tidy; The location is great, near the train station and although the bedroom is right on the street it was not loud enough to stop us from sleeping.
