I had a great time staying in this flat. The apartment was set up even better than last time. Kule also set me up with someone to help clean the place mid-week and was also super helpful in handling any questions that came up. I am looking forward to staying here again.
Great apartment. I will definitely stay here again. Apartment is same as described on website, no nasty surprises. WiFi is very fast and reliable. Reliable hot water supply. Nice quiet location. Kule (owner) and Cynthia (manager) are available and willing to help and are very flexible and accommodating. Friendly caretaker Jack and guards downstairs. Very secure building and neighborhood. Easy to catch a taxi. Small market and Java House cafe/restaurant within 1-2 minute walk.
I never met the host in part because I arrived quite late at night. He did organize a driver to pick me up at the airport and bring me to the apartment which was great. This apartment is well located and it was clean with a comfortable bed. We had sort of a miscommunication around the internet which wasn't ideal, but once we sorted it out the internet worked well. I would definitely recommend and would stay there again.
This place is fantastic! I had a great experience staying in Kule's studio apartment. It was stylish and conveniently located in the heart of the city. Kule is also an awesome and friendly host. We met up at the cafe across the street and ended up chatting for hours about all kinds of things. I'll definitely be staying here again in the future. Thanks Kule!
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the apartment. The location is ideal and with the recent introduction of Uber, it makes getting around the city quite easy. Kule's assistant Cynthia was a joy to work with and helped us at every stage. One thing I will mention is that the apartment, although decorated very nicely, is very basic in terms of amenities for eating, storage, etc. I also feel the pictures are a little dated and don't accurately portray the entire apartment (namely the kitchen and bathroom).
Clean and comfortable apartment. I had a nice stay. And though I never met Kule, he and hist staff do a very efficient job managing the place.
Everything worked perfectly, and the apartment is actually very nice and located in a walkable area. Reccomended.
