Hi. The fridge has a small in-built freezer at the top of the fridge. More suitable for packs of frozen vegetables etc. I would "estimate" the size to be 450 wide x 250 high x 350 deep. Regards.

They do not start the airport shuttle service too early, maybe 8 AM. They arranged a 4:30 AM taxi for me. It showed up on time and only cost about $7 (USD) with tip.
