Everything close by. Able to do laundry & cook you own meals. The only thing we struggled with was the noise. In all fairness we were there over festive season, which in its self is a celebration. We live on a dark, quite country road, so we were totally not used to noise. The apartment was neat, tidy and clean. Once again I think due to festive season we were unable to put rubbish out as main bins overflowing. Franseca, the lovely house keeper was more than helpful and told us not to worry about it, just to make sure we separated paper waste and place it in bin provided. A very nice stay in Stuttgart.
