We stayed in July 14. I agree that the stairs are super steep! There is a small kitchen that served us well. We shopped in the Chinese market at the end of the street and cooked a few meals. otherwise we ate at one of the many restaurants in the area, Sarah answered all emails very quickly. We were there during the World Cup and just opened the doors to listened to all the fans cheering as their team scored. Easy to get to all parts of the city. We would stay there again.
