It’s a nice complex of flats which are well maintained in good condition. Wooden floor with underneath heating adjustable to you preference. Hot water 24/7. you can request the flat furnished or unfurnished. Noise level is relatively low. Really warm throughout winter, it can get hot during summer (of course 2022 was an extreme scenario). Covered parking which is charged extra. Also, bike racks where you can leave your bike protected from the elements. Management is attentive, cleaning the facilities on regular basis and sending informative emails regarding any maintenance.
