The apartment is lovely and in great central location. We expected a certain amount of noise because of this, ie traffic, but the noise was horrendous. There are 2 building sites on either side of the apartment, and Monday-Friday the noise and constant deliveries to these sites begins very early in the morning at 6-6.30am. As well as this there’s a large rubbish skip and recycling bins right outside the front of the apartment (where bedroom is) where businesses are pouring large amounts of glass bottles into the recycling bin in the early hours of the morning which makes a horrendous noise, and then again, very early in the morning, the council arrive to remove skip etc and it is so so noisy - woke us up every single morning and night. I’ve never gone on holiday before and gone home more tired than I arrived!!
Having said all that, the apartment is very nice, and in a great central location. Also, the owner is very nice. Once all the building work has finished, that will eliminate a lot of the noise. Maybe the noise wouldn’t be a problem for other people, but for us it was too much and really affected our sleep.
One other minor point is that the safe wasn’t in use and I had to carry around passports, jewellery, cash etc all holiday in my bag, which was a real nuisance.
On a final note, a spare key would be very useful too.
