Very nice but Very Noisy

Absolutely Great location and spacious studio apartment.
The posted photos and comments from other guests describe it accurately.
However, the Bar/Restaurant below on the ground floor is open "until"; in our case it didn't close until 3 AM
or later on 2 of the 3 nights we were there - Thursday to Saturday .
The noise from the very loud music, made sleeping extremely difficult even with ear plugs - it seemed that
the later it got the more they increased the bass.
Also, their bank charged 20E for the wire transfer of the deposit which I had to pay. I was not aware of this add-on charge until the wire transfer was sent and I received acknowledgment of receipt of deposit.
My bank emailed their bank on 2 occasions re any charges for the wire transfer but did not receive a response.
Since my bank does not charge me for handling wire transfers & there was no response from their bank re any charges,I assumed that there would be none. Therefore, I was surprised with the extra 20E cost.
Tourists without a Car,
Owner's Response: Like written on my profile, my apartment is located in a vibrant neighborhood, The Nine Streets. The restaurant and later bar closes on thursday at 1am and friday and saturday at 3am, not later. People go out in the weekend, like everywhere when you rent something downtown. The music is constant and tested at my apartment for noise and its approved. First time I get a complain about the restaurant/bar downstairs!
In the summery that I've send is written that any additional costs for bank transfers will be added to the outstanding balance, thats before there was any payment. You should have checked before with your bank if there was gonna be any additional costs for transferring money, before you made any payment. I got one email from you about it and we could have talked about it when I saw you at my apartment.
Im happy that you enjoyed my apartment.
