    “This is a stunning location.”

    The entrance is amazing.

    The entrance is amazing. The apartment itself is well sized with high end appliances and comfortable furniture. The welcome pack was a very nice gesture which included water in the fridge, tea, Nespresso pods, and some sweet goodies. We did have a couple of issues with the Internet not working and the breaker tripping but nothing that ruined our stay. Would highly recommend.
