  • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

Pros - The view is stunning and the location is great. Cons - The apartment has no air conditioning and it gets so hot at night even if you open the windows. The glazing is thin so you hear all the traffic noise, it’s a busy road until early hours Of the morning where the noise calms fo a bit. We were left a note saying this property is not not serviced apartment and we will need to put your own rubbish out and wash up or we will be charged. There were no bath towels left for the two of us and reception closed at 5pm so we had to make do with hand towels. Overall I’m not sure what justifies the price.
