This flat was a fabulous find and Michal was such a lovely host - his communication was excellent all the way through and although he couldn't meet us (my partner and I) he made sure a trusted friend was able to come and give us the keys/show us in.
The flat is on the fourth floor but there is a lift up to it. It was very convenient to park there as the flat has a designated parking space included behind a secure gate - what with this being so close to the centre of Cambridge this was an absolute godsend.
Michal leaves comprehensive instructions for everything. The block where his apartment is is smart and the apartment itself is quite spacious and includes WiFi. I was impressed that not only was there an ensuite but also a hallway toilet. There's a spacious lounge/kitchen/diner that is well stocked - and a balcony! Again, for so close to the centre of Cambridge this is really impressive.
This IS Michal's home and that's obvious - it's not at all a problem because Michal has been so thoughtful and careful to leave empty spaces for you to store your things, but his things are around and it won't feel like an apartment exclusively for guests. It worked perfectly for our needs but something to bear in mind depending on why you're going away.
The bed was large and comfy and there is also a sofa bed that we didn't use, but it looked very nice. There's quite a few electronics that you have access to and the kitchen is lovely (dishwasher included!). In the hallway there's a few small cupboards, one of which includes a washing machine! No tumble dryer but there's a drying rack in one of the cupboards.
The ensuite is also spacious. The shower has reasonable water pressure and could manage two showers without running out of hot water. The bath is a spa-bath but have to admit I couldn't quite figure out how to make it work! But I guess I'm trying to say it's quite an exclusive well equiped apartment lived in by someone working his bottom off as a medical student, and it was a great find. I was very pleased Michal is offering out his home, that was very kind of him, and I would be more than happy to stay there again.
We walked into Cambridge centre. It's an easy walk that took about half an hour. But the flat looks amazingly located. Very close by there's numerous shops, restaurants and a cinema complex... and then obviously Cambridge is a beautiful city.
Again, we were very lucky - thank you Michal.
Best wishes to you for everything including your future career!!!
