The apartment is really beautiful: big, clean, forniture of good quality, with all the necessary... The area is quiet and well supplied by public transport: the train exit of the train station is just the opposite to the apartment. In a few minutes it is possible to get to the city center. So everything is perfect.
Thank you very much!
