Thanks for the feedback. Noted regarding the lighting! We actually have a lamp we recently purchased for over the couch and just haven't had the time to install it, but will do! Will also put in a more powerful bulb over the bed for future guests. Also our landlord upstairs just got some slippers and a rug for their kid which we're testing and should make a difference.
Thanks and safe travels in the future!
Thanks for the feed back. Ear plugs may be a good idea since the arrival of the new addition to the family upstairs. They're also looking into carpeting to help buffer the sound. The kitchen is definitely open to guest use. I'd like to think of our apartment as better then a 'large hotel' room though you're right there is no TV. Safe travels to you in the future !
