“Roomy, light apartment. Convenient to all areas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

As an Australian I can only imagine the problems with renovating and maintaining a 200+ year old property. We expected some compromises might have been necessary in having a suitable apartment available for short term renting. We were pleasantly surprised with the result. The apartment has bare wooden floors – we were there at the start of summer, not sure how this would be in colder months – but the living and bedroom areas are roomy and light. Obviously the apartment above has wooden floors also as we got some footsteps noise from there – not too bad, but noticeable when someone is moving about. In spite of being on a busy road there is little traffic noise courtesy of double glazing. There is a view of the canal but also a lovely leafy view from the back balcony of courtyard gardens. One of the compromises is in the renovated bathroom. The shower recess is comfortable (taking up half the bathroom space) but this cramps the rest of the area with the toilet and hand basin (which only has cold water) crowded together. There is another hand basin in the bedroom but it is a bit awkward to use as well.
The advertisements said there was a washer and a dryer but this turns out to be a service. You leave the laundry with the owner, Nurit, and she returns the laundered clothes the next day. On the one hand this is a nice treat. On the other hand, it is not quite the same as the apartment having its own equipment to be used as convenient. Otherwise the apartment is fully equipped.
The booking arrangements were done efficiently as was the check-in. Nurit was particularly helpful with advice and tips about the neighbourhood. She even helped carry our luggage up and down the stairs as this is another of the compromises necessary in an old building - the staircase leading to the first (second?) floor apartment. There are 36 very steep and narrow steps which can be quite a struggle to climb with suitcases. Nurit helped to carry ours up but we were all breathless for a couple of minutes afterwards.
