          After the first sight of the entrance the apartments themselves were a pleasant surprise. After complaning about rhe first apartment I was moved next day and when the washing machine in this apartment didn't work that was rectified immediately.

          The street entrance is very off-putting, it looks sleazy. My apartment the first night had a badly fitting window and the wind whistled and banged all night (but I was moved next day) - they seemed aware of this problem, so why not do something about it! I didn't like the reception not being manned after 8pm, even earlier at weekends.
