We were greeted by a very nice man, Oliver Fedak, he met us at the apartment with the keys, helped us into the apartment and gave us his mobile number in case we needed any help. He also gave us a discount on the apartment as they were resurfacing the street outside (even though we were there over a weeked and only saw the workmen 1 morning).
So, as far as service was concerned, you couldn't fault this apartment.
Facilities were great too, there were lots of radiators and once we got Oliver to come and switch on the heating the apartment was lovely and warm! There was unlimited hot water and the kitchen has a dishwasher and washing machine, not that we used them but great as a just in case!
The apartment has one huge double bed and a comfortable sofa bed and also across the landing and stairwell there's another room that can sleep one more person, but we didn't use this.

Unique Qualities: The location is fantastic, a beautiful 10 minute stroll down the river brings you to the main centre of the city. The views are fantastic, we could see trees and mountains and the river and a beautiful old church! The apartment is in a beautiful old building built into the mountain so the back walls of the apartment are rock, which is a really nice feature.
My only warning - take slippers as the carpet is a bit rough, especially on feet that are tired from all the walking around the city! There is a rug that covers much of the carpet though, which is much softer.
