The host made us feel welcome and answered when we asked questions. Its location was perfect being close to our daughter's apartment. The main room was large and rather Spartan, no tv, no eating table, and the wooden floors very creaky. The picture for the apartment is accurate, but tells little about the situation. There was a tiny little closet with a shelf or two, so that we could put a few clothes in it. But mostly we had to live out of our suitcase because the other closets were filled with the owner's clothes and no drawers were available. A set of clean towels was left for us. The bathroom and kitchen are tiny, but manageable. But without a sit down table, the kitchen facilities lose their luster. When we arrived, the maid was still cleaning the apartment and the bed was mussed from either the owner or previous tenant. When we went to bed I noticed that the same comforter was used for us without a top sheet. The radiator heating system was terrible. It went from extreme hot to cold with no control. When the radiator filled with water, it rattled like a clumsy drummer for anywhere from 30 seconds to 2 minutes at decibel levels exceeding 110 as measured on our phone app. When cold outside, it cycled at various intervals between 15 and 30 minutes. This noxious sound prevented any sound or continuous sleeping through most of the week, but one day was warm, so we got some sleep one night. To keep from sweating in the bed from the extreme heat, we opened a window and turned on the a/c. We should have stayed at the hotel.
