This apartment worked quite well for us on a late March trip. Great restaurants near by, stores to purchase groceries, a kitchen to prepare meals in, nice shower, roomy interior, clean, very short walk to the train station, k-cup espresso in the morning. The unit is up a single flight staircase. Quiet even in the middle of town. Does not...
