눉I found the bed to be cripplingly uncomfortable. I was as stiff as a board every morning. After 4 nights of our scheduled 10 night stay, I could stand it no longer and we booked onto the first available flight home.
The hot water system is abysmal. The tank holds barely enough water for one shower, let alone two. To cap it all, the tank is shared with the adjacent apartment. What's all that about?
Catering facilities are laughable. Food preparation equipment consists of a single, blunt vegetable knife. Not even a pair of scissors or a bread knife. Cooking facilities run to a kettle, a toaster, a coffee machine and a two ring hob. No oven or microwave. We decided to do a dish with rice, only to discover that there was no means to strain it.
The furniture is cheap and tatty and in some cases broken. The leatherette recliner that you can see in the photo's is frayed around the arms and doesn't actually work.
The apartment is in an old building which seems to have been converted for new use. Nothing wrong with that, but please put thicker walls in next time. The sound proofing is so poor that it's possible to hear the neighbours snoring.
It's understandable that the owner wishes to present the apartment in the most favourable light and I'm not suggesting that the photo's are doctored in any way. They do however miss out some key features such as the balcony view of the water tanks and solar array, the bizarre spiral stair case (which is certainly not suitable for the infirm or broad of beam) and the condition of the furniture.
눇The location within the walled city is probably unbeatable. You can drive right up to the door, which makes unloading luggage easy. (Parking is available a short distance away.) The place is very clean, there is daily maid service (except Sunday) and clean towels are provided daily (two lots on Saturday)
