The first feature we noticed about the apartment was how impeccably clean the apartment was, it was immaculate. Alexandra got us checked, gave some tips about the neighborhood regarding restaurants and grocery stores; and where to find the metro. Communication with the host is very timely in response. The kitchen is fantastic, we cooked several times and all the appliances work fantastic as well as the cookware. The washer and dryer work great too, it's nice to depart home with all clean clothes. The patio was refreshing to sit out for wine or al fresco dining. Just like in the picture, the apartment is stylish and modern with a zen vibe, but; very welcoming and comfortable to come home to after a day out in the city. I cannot recommend or say enough positive things about this host or apartment, we found everything just wonderful.
