    “Excellent apartment and location.”

    Everything we needed was there. A few points however, the living area had a strong smell of wet dog, even though we are dog owners ourselves, the Wi-Fi signal is terrible and needs looking at and the mattress really should be more comfortable for such a premium property. Other than those few points the stay was great.
