Hi Kim, we are both delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. We have reviewed your comments, and they are all very positive! We are slightly concerned when you say it took 40 minutes to walk to the city centre!? It never takes us longer than 15, google maps has it at 18, but because we know no-one likes to rush when they are on vacation, we thought 20 minutes was more than generous. We thought it was a reasonable estimation, and it takes longer by the tram given the waiting around involved! The nearest grocery store is also 60 metres from the front door, and the Grand Canal is less than 100 metres away. Anyway, glad you enjoyed your stay!
