All in all, we had an excellent experience - the apartment and location were fantastic.
Anthony was in touch soon after arrival to offer any assistance or advice required. We didn't need to take up his offer but it was a nice touch to get in touch and reassuring to know your host is there to help.
We stayed in Anthony's apartment for two nights and we are really pleased. It's located really close to everything in the city and the standard was great. Anthony was really straight forward and nice to deal with.
