Good location for night life and restaurants. Youthfull neighborhood that does play into the late late night noise level. I can't imagine leaving the windows open in the summer because even with them closed we were woken up by loud partiers. We had to spend one night of our stay in a hotel due to malfuntioning toilet and apartently this has been a problem in the past (and NO we did not put anything "foereign" in the commode). Design and layout is nice--but the couch as pictured is not the couch in the apartment. Instead the furniture (kind of an upolstered wooden bench) was so unofortable that we tended to sit on the floor. Kitchen was nice.
