The studio apartment is wonderful. Clean and bright and airy. A 5th floor view of generic cityscape gives the studio an open feel. The hosts were very responsive and efficient. The WiFi was reliable and fast. Hot water was hot. Cold fridge and microwave were convenient. There was even an oven; which was an extra plus; although I didn’t use it. And I was surprised there was a washing machine; which I did use. My issue is the uncomfortable bed. It was either a very hard mattress or just a box spring. I resorted to the foldout sofa bed; which was OK as far as foldout sofa beds are concerned. But not what you want have to settle for. The apartment complex is safe and secure. Including security at the door. Close to the bus line and a subway station. Easy to call for an Uber. The neighborhood is excellent. Lots of wonderful restaurant choices in a variety of price ranges. Host’s suggestion of Tacos Alvaro Obregon for a quick, cheap taqueria was spot on. I ate there three times this week.
