We were very impressed with our 3 nights in this unique home. The apartment was well appointed with everything we needed to cook our own meals and dine in....it was also located within a few blocks of great restaurants and cafés. The front of the apartment (near the window and door) was slightly drafty, but the living and bedroom areas were very cozy. We only had one day of nice weather but we certainly enjoyed the canal location and sitting out watching the boats and ducks float by. I highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a central location from which to explore the city.
