This was a lovely apartment in a great location. The beds and furniture was comfortable and everything was modern and very clean. The staff we met, Olivia and Nuno were very helpful and responsive to any question or need. This would be a great apartment for tourists new to renting apartments because the staff really provided concierge service. I've been renting apartments all over Europe for the last 10 years, and this ranks in the top 1-2 I've rented. The only reason for a 9 rating instead of ten - was that plates, cups, glasses were very high in the cabinets. The apartment would benefit from a small step stool to help access these items.
