A lot of room for us to spread out in this home away from home. A busy area, not touristy, where you could live like the locals. We were here a very short time but enjoyed a couple street side cafes and local stores. The only drawback is because of the open courtyard area that the apartment wraps around, if you have your windows open, you get a lot of noise from the neighbors... especially on a Saturday night. But it's all part of apartment life in the city. The only thing I did not like is the parking garage. First of all, you had to figure out a place to park while you check in... not easy. There is a parking garage in the building but be aware there is a very steep curved ramp... you better have a small car. The lights only stay on in the garage for a very short time causing you to be in the dark before you are finished loading or unloading your car. And I can tell you that you do not want to stop on the ramp while leaving or you might end up spinning your tires. Definitely wait at the bottom until the door is fully open so that you can come up without stopping. I did not like the garage BUT it was nice to have parking! If you are not driving, and don't need parking... It's a perfect apartment. And if you do need parking... you can make do and it's still a great apartment.
