Good locationon but withou air con very hot small studio with a tiny bathroom without an exhaust.
Communication with the property manager was particularly poor. He didn't bother to email me that the keys needed to be collected from a different address that was a return taxi ride from the property. This information should have been sent to me prior so that we were not stuck out with suitcases and paying for return taxis rides as the keys were not a short walk away. The apartment was not clean. The floors were absolutely filthy. After walking on the floor barefoot for a short period of time our feet were black. I had to mop the floor as it was that bad. The mop had never been used and the colour of the water was filthy. (I have taken photos of the brand new mop head and how dirty the floor made it) Considering the cleaning fee cost for this small studio is ridiculously uber, uber high per stay and it's a total rip off! The studio faces the morning sun, so take night shades if you want to be able to sleep after the sunrise (which is early) as the blinds don't keep out the light very well. Its very hot sleeping at night as there is no air conditioner, also when the blinds are down the air doesn't get through the windows but it is essential that the blinds are down because of of the very early morning sun. There are 2 small fans but they are pretty hopeless and very noisy, plus one has a timer and will only run for an hour before it has to be manually started again. Which isn't helpful when you are trying to get some sleep. But when you wake up feeling like you are in a sauna you can then reset it! The bathroom is ridiculously small, so much so it's a real manoeuvre to sit on the loo. There is no exhaust to dissipate any bathroom odours or to take away any of the steam from a shower so it's rather like a sauna, you come out of the shower and can't dry off without leaving the bathroom. It is hard to see how this studio has been recently renovated as its certainly not been the kitchen, lounge/bedroom and definitely not the bathroom! The location is its one great asset.
