Was it good value for money? Yes..
Did it meet your expectations? Not entirely. Looked like it hadnt been occupied for a while, we needed to dust the table and chairs before dining, dust under couches. Playing relay with one set of keys for the first four days handicapped our initial forays into the local area, constant liaison amongst two couples as to who would be home to let in whom was an unnecessary impost. Caretaker should have been instructed to hand over extra set of keys on day one instead of day four, particularly as the request was initially made days prior to arrival.
Was the description accurate? No, not luxury but, seeing the rate charged, I did not have this expectation. Describing it as "luxury accommodation" is a misnomer, these were not luxury rates so not disappointed. If luxury rates were charged to suit the website description, it would not meet expectations. Decorating with Ikea finishes and fittings from cheap cutlery to flimsy dining room table and chairs, average bedding, this does not equate to luxury. shoddy towels, theyve seen a better life! The fitout lets down the standard of the building.
Would you recommend it to a friend? Yes but with the stipulation that you get what you pay for and this is not 4 star accommodation.
Were you adequately looked after during your stay? No, caretaker let us in and fled down the stairs without any introduction to facilities. We found the booklet on how to run the washing machine on day 5 (bottom drawer below the oven!) after wed struggled with interpreting the settings and endured an excessively long wash 3 days earlier. 3 garbage bags for a 10 day stay and no dishwasher soap is not useful and certainly not luxury worthy. If the owner wants us to look after her apartment, then dont be so mean with supplying cleaning products. PS. we bought missing items and happily left them for the next occupants, I hope the caretaker leaves them for them.
