  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

We liked having an apartment in the center of town. We had all the kitchenware and towels we needed. It was a bit complicated to figure out the hot water for the shower. I suggest to provide a manual for the appliances. Water pressure was also low in the shower.

Everything was really great, very clean, and I was very impressed. It was very warm, and I did not figure out the portable fans weren't just heaters until our last day!! My only - very minor - issues were using the washer /dryer, and the shower. We do not have electric showers in the US, so it took me a while to figure it out. 😊 It was a nice apartment, excellent location, and we were very pleased.

    Room for improvement

    The flat was lovely, but there were three major issues. The en-suite bathroom: smells of damp and raw sewage every time the water is turned on elsewhere in the flat (i.e. the kitchen or other bathroom), and there is damp damage around the base of the shower, and that power shower has low pressure. The double room: double bed mattress is probably in need of replacing as it dips where it seems a lot of people have slept on already. The entrances: There is a LOT of pigeon feces leading into the apartment building and the apartment itself. I am aware this might not the fault of Old Town Apartments and rather the fault of the building owner, but the really need to lobby them to spray wash that daily so it doesn’t build it. There were no pigeons in sight so it was clearly something that has build up over weeks/months. This apartment is really lovely and if not for these issues with comfort and cleanliness I would have given it 5 stars, but there were issues that were impossible to ignore. Also, the place asked for a deposit over email, which is of course, was unsecured and even suspicious. There must be a better and more secure way to take deposits in 2019. I would even rather pay more up front to be issued a refund at the end of the stay as you know it will be more secure than provided card details over an email that could be easily hacked on either end with no guarantee your card numbers will be destroyed securely. If these changes were made it would be an amazing stay!

    Nice but hard to find

    Directions to the location were a bit difficult to understand simply because the geography of the location is unique. We were looking for roads not realizing the "alleys" were roads. Rooms were clean and well kept.
