Here is Heather's Feedback:

Lived like a German and loved it!

The apartment was well appointed, clean and comfortable. It really felt like we were living among the German people as there was only one other English family nearby. Much better than being in a holiday complex surrounded by Britons as we loved seeing how life is for the locals.

The owner was very friendly and helpful when we needed to contact him. We would certainly recommend this to anyone.

Perhaps the only things that may deter others is that the apartment was at the top of the building which involved hauling our luggage up 6 flights of stairs although we weren't troubled by this as it meant we could eat more cake. Also the location was not in the centre of town but about 3 miles outside, but the tram system was very close by and very regular and efficient.

What I liked best: The cleanliness and location. It was always very quiet and felt very safe.

What I liked least: The fridge could have been bigger for our size of family but really that's all.
