Lousy rental in a good location
The highlight was that we were picked up at the airport and driven to the apartment which is just off Republic Square, a few minutes from the Palladium mall which has a supermarket as well as a Metro station. The rest is bad. We were given only one set of keys although we needed two sets since my wife and I had different schedules; e-mails to the owner were not returned anytime during our 8 day stay so it was good that we had no major disasters. The apartment is on the 3rd floor (68 steps) and if anyone doesn't shut the elevator door all the way, the elevator stays on whatever floor it's on. The "balcony" is barely wide enough for a chair and overlooks the roofs of adjacent buildings. The kitchen, to include tiny refrigerator and microwave, was not clean and cooking limited to a tiny microwave and 2-burner hot plate. There is no air-conditioning and no breeze thru the windows; we bought a fan but it was of little help. Shelves in the clothes storage cabinet were dust-laden and someone had left clothes in the bottom drawer. There was no bath soap or hand soap upon arrival. The Wi-Fi router didn't work so we had to disconnect the cable and hook it to a computer; if we had devices with only Wi-Fi access, we would have been out of luck. Again, no replies to e-mails sent to the owner. Light bulbs were out in the bedroom (1) and the overhead light in the kitchen/living area (3). Pillows and linens were shabby several good restaurants within walking distance but we would never stay here again. we have stayed at several residences thru Home Away but they should drop this listing.
