The Flat was perfect for us. We like staying some where that has the familiarity of a home instead of a hotel, so we enjoyed it. It is not walking distance from the center but if you do not mind a half hour walk, you can get to the museums by walking. Otherwise using the tram is straightforward. One of the days we stayed it rained pretty bad, so we call a taxi which charged us 13 EU, not bad for three adults as we were travelling also with my mum. After a long day walking among little streets and tourists, it was refreshing to go back to a place that felt like a home, away from the noise. Sonja was very kind, the flat was clean and had everything we needed even a cold patch patch on the freezer that helped my pregnant-swollen legs feel better. Our 2 year old enjoyed drawing on the blackboard and all the toys. This also kept her away from the steep stairs an kept her entertained while we were relaxing.
Goed verblijf gehad in het ruime appartement van Sonja en Bas. Alles is aanwezig, goed bed en in de zomer zal de tuin het vast ook goed doen, daar konden we nu in februari nog geen gebruik van maken.
Wij verbleven in het appartement met ons zoontje van 2 en een half. Alles was voor hem aanwezig, bedje, kinderstoel en speelgoed, erg fijn.
Great apartment in a nice and quiet area. Fantastic host!
If you want to be near the touristy places then might be worth going a bit further north (personal choice).
Great apartment in nice location very close to transport and grocery stores. Hosts greeted us on arrival and had some lovely sweet treats waiting for us. We were travelling with an 8 month old and they had a cot set up for us with lots of towels and bed linen . There were 2 entrances to apartment one being a store room which was really convenient for storing the pram . There were also lots of toys for our little one to play with and a high chair.
Overall, this was a very clean, well located, convenient and homely apartment.
Abbiamo soggiornato in questo appartamento per 4 giorni per festeggiare capodanno.
L'appartamento è confortevole, facile da raggiungere con i mezzi pubblici.
I proprietari sono molto simpatici e disponibili.
Nous avons passé une excellente semaine dans l'appartement de Linéa. L'appartement est très confortable, bien équipé et l'accès au centre ville est facile. Nous avons apprécier la gentillesse de nos hôtes. Ils sont toujours près à rendre service. A recommander.
Wonderful cozy apartment, great to come back to after a cold days sight seeing. Our hosts couldn't have been more helpful and friendly.
The local area is relaxingly quiet but still has an number of lovely restaurants and bars.
All in all we couldn't recommend staying there more highly.
