The Bad:As the previous reviewer noted Alexander's description was not accurate. When we booked certain amenities were promised and they were not available,the most important was A/C. We would NOT have stayed here had we known there wasn't any.Alexander lives here part time so he knows what is and isn't available.A previous reviewer said "if the weather had been warm, we would have had a miserable time trying to sleep" because there is no A/C. Well when we stayed the temps were between 25-30C with 65% humidity not what we are used to.Opening the windows presented another problem.Unfortunately after we arrived we read a review that mentioned the apartment is located on a "main intersection" and loud.Because we had no A/C our choice was to try and sleep in a sauna or open the windows and try to sleep through the revving motorcycles,cars,pedestrians,etc. Closing windows merely muffles the noise so the volume on the t.v.,etc had to be increased. We found 1 small fan to circulate the hot air. Two other promised amenities were also missing including a working dishwasher. Another reviewer noted it was broken in April as well. Alexander told us to stack the dirty dishes for the "maid". The counter space as you can see from the photos is very limited and we were there for 5 days. We had no choice but to wash them or stare at an ever growing pile.We were surprised that we had to make our beds when we arrived-never experienced that.We shared a closet with Alexander and and he left us about .75m in hanging space, no shoe space and 9 hangars for 3 adults. There are other smaller things not worth mentioning.
The Good: The busy intersection aside the location makes it easy to walk to town,the river and park are very close (see the "surfers"). The apartment has been remodeled it looks better than the photos.Spacious and bright with nice & newer contemporary furniture. Remodeled kitchen is small as expected but it has everything you need-including new dishes.glasses cutlery etc. If the apartment was as advertised my overall review would have been 4.5 stars or if we visited when it was cooler but sadly neither of those were true and this was a very unpleasant experience. Alexander has corrected errors in the listing we found so those booking now will not experience all the problems we had.
