The apartment is situated on the first floor of a building,
in a mixed industrial/residential area. Opposite a car scrap yard, which is close to a busy main road. Access to the apartment via stairs only, there is no lift.
Location is definitely not one of it's strong points, and the building is generally left unattended, however there is a phone number to call if necessary. However in my opinion, this isn't a problem.
Remember this is an apartment rental, not a hotel room, so remember that when making your decision!
There are very few restaurants close by, but plenty in the city centre area, should you choose not to cook.
Apartment was very clean upon arrival, and was maintained that way by the daily cleaner. It is situated about a 10 minute walk from the nearest S Bahn station, and there are 2 supermarkets, within about a 5 minute walk. An Italian style fast food restaurant, is situated adjacent to one of the supermarkets. The apartment has air conditioning, and a safe is available. I didn't hear any excessive noise, even considering the location. A journey into the City centre takes about 15 minutes.
