Alltogether the apartment may sleep 5 good friends or a family (ideal for 3 but 5 may work fine too...). If bringing a small child, a crib (babybed) is available but must be notified. Please state if the child is between 1 and 4 years of age. Once I had a large spanish family staying (total 7 guests including children).
