"Overall, our experience was good."

The apartment was in good condition. There was very little parking on the street where the apartment was located and it was difficult to find a spot. The washer/dryer, and dishwasher were in good working order but did not come with any directions for use and were very different than anything we had used before. We never could figure out the television. An electricity breaker was tripped while we were there but the hostess was quick to come over and fix it. There was not an adequate supply of toilet tissue and we had to go buy our own. The location was very close to a bus stop and a Tesco which was very helpful to us. Overall, our experience was good. The hostess was very helpful and was able to meet us at a later time than originally planned due to a late flight.
