It is complicated to be fair to this apartment. It has incredible good points: it is exceptionally well situated (in the city center, very close to the hermitage or to the Church of the Spilled Blood or to the metro/bus station), it is incredibly quiet at night, which ensures you repairing nights, and very spacious. It has free wifi which proves to be absolutely essential for travellers. And the sauna is small but works very well and is very confortable when you get drenched in the rain all day.
On the other hand, the stairwell is appalling, the lift not up to European standards, though it does work very well, and some things inside the apartment need some improvement. Though the beds are of relatively good quality, the mattresses need to be changed because they don't inspire confidence, the light bulbs must be changed everywhere it needs to, and the apartments lacks cooking pots, lids ,a dripper, a peeler, a jug... The supermarket that is close at hand is also quite small but open until 11 pm. It must also be said that when you ask for something improvements are made right away. So all in all you can have a nice stay, if you don't expect to live grandly and have the faculties to adapt to what is given and not to what you might expect.
Apart from the misunderstanding at our arrival which was promptly solved, the building was in very bad conditions and the sofas were rather filthy; cooking facilities not sufficient at all for six people. However the flat can comfortably host six people and it is located in a strategic position. Wifi not included in the original price but extra.
