It’s not apartment it’s sharing!
Never book from again it’s very misleading never thought I would share the flat with other strangers. It clearealy says in room appliances. Very confusing. Please let others know it’s shared bathroom and toilets and kitchen. Felt very uncomfortable. Girish

Tres bien placé, dans un endroit très agréable. La décoration appartient à une autre époque mais les équipements sont fonctionnels. L’accueil et le personnel sont charmants. Une adresse que je recommande.
