Response from Ray:
I complained about the hot water. I was told "Sometimes you have to turn it on and wait 20 minutes." She explained that the hot water to that shower came from the 6th floor so I took time to make the journey. Last time I checked water ran down pipes pretty fast so this explanation is a bit of a stretch. Elena kindly shared her shower with me; it had plenty of hot water.
The apartment is not noisy; it is very quiet in a very noisy neighborhood. The patio is only noisy because of the AC compressor that does not run constantly.
A "Surprise" review? No, simply a "Review".
