Points given. ("5=excellent") 5/5 in each category except 4/5 for bathroom.
Toni B. (Barcelona, Spain)
[ To try to get a "5" the bathroom has been re-painted, in white, was in dark blue before, was too dark; and added a multi-towel unit and 2 more wall lights. (an extra wall light also added in bedroom 3)].
2) "The appartment looked exactly like the pictures and was in good shape.
It was a 5 minutes walk to the market and Vaci Utca (Tourist street). Outside to the right was Raday Utca. A restuarant and bar street.
The key holder was friendly and to a lot of help.
A perfect stay" .
