After going through an easy booking process we were placed in a third floor apartment at 18 Rue Gaivotas. Checking in was a little awkward as we were directed to another location to get the keys, then load our bags on a street that was very narrow with no parking. Luckily the building had an elevator. All a bit difficult and stressful but once we were moved in we loved the place. The apartment was very roomy, clean although a little short on storage space for our clothes. The 'eat-in' kitchen was well equipped with a decent fridge, washer and dish washer. The apartment is situated a short walk from the fantastic Time Out Market and few good eating spots including a popular breakfast cafe right opposite. We especially loved the convenience of a short walk to the train station with Metro access. We felt very safe in this mainly student area.
