Thanks Giselle for your review. The bathtub cannot be replaced as this would mean having to remove the classic 50's tile work around the bath and the yellow floor tiles which cannot be replaced. This would clash with the rest of the authentic styling of the apartment. So to keep the style of the place I was only able to do very subtle rennovations, which more importantly included changing the piping to make sure excellent water pressure, together with a water pump on the roof. But as you mention, bath mats are provided to ensure comfort and cleanliness. As for a bath curtain, the probelm has been that I could not find fittings for the high ceiling ... so, here again I preferred to avoid cluttering with shaby materials that would clutter the place.
