Comfy and super clean
A very attentive owner greeted me as I artived tired and stressed at almost 10pm. After i told him i had left my husband at the hospital with sudden complications from a cold, he even checked if I had had dinner. The unit had all the comforts of a small apartment and was very tidy. If your sleep is lught, the low-flying planes can wake you up early.
