Gabriela, I only wish you had contacted me during your stay, as till I read this I had no idea how you felt. There are places for hanging hats, coats etc., behind the lounge door, in the closet on the landing and behind the bedroom door, there is a table available (in the basement) for guests to use, and I would have told you to open more windows, as the flat is warmly insulated for winter and should be properly aired especially when cooking or after a hot bath or shower. True that the entrance corridor is a bit cramped, but that is what allows the lounge and bedroom to be quite a lot bigger than average. Anyway we just had the bathroom repainted, and most of the other people seem to find the place comfortable and cozy the way it is. Thanks anyway for the feedback.
