Disappointed by the offer
Flat changed at the last minute (one hour before we arrived)
Amenities far away of what it was supposed to be : 1 bathroom instead of 2 (for 6 people ), additional beds were just mattress on the floor, heating with electrical small devices definitely not enough for the rooms (was really cold outside), not enough hot water to shower , TV not working, cooking eggs make alarm's ringing (good for neighbors) , dirty lamps and spider web in bathroom ..
So no value for money ..

our host has kept part of the deposit without formal advise and/or explanation. Several times called but vainly, he was not even present as we left the flat.Lies on the flat itself at the last moment w/o any other option, lies on the quality: poor but at high price. Not reliable, a shame for this reservation system, bad advertisement for 9flat
