The apartment is still at the very high standards of our last visit. Great location for walking into the centre and free on site is a big plus. The cosiness and warmth of the place is far superior to any hotel room we've ever stayed in and the personal touches and attention to detail is excellent. The apartment was again... more

We hope to return... more
