"confirming what others have said"

We choose the apartment because of its location; it is very central running parallel to the Gran Via, in a street that can only be described as a ‘mini’ china town. Communications with the agent were good prior to the visit and our rep turned up reasonably on time to show us to the apartment. Unfortunately on immediate inspection we noted the television did not work, however our rep replaced this within the hour. The apartment is very small, 3 of us managed okay but any more I think would be a struggle. I could not see 6 people managing in this apartment. There was no welcome pack, which would have been appreciated as we had had a long journey. The apartment though not unclean was a bit scruffy; it would benefit from a good clean, a lick of paint and some new fabrics. There is a night club opposite the apartment with a flashing sign, which can seen in the bedrooms, through the curtains into the early hours of the morning. The street itself is noisy into the early hours and the flat would benefit from consideration regarding ways of reducing this. There is a police station just up the road; however the police stand outside the station which seems to lead to groups of other people standing around talking to them, a strange sight to our British eyes. An important considering for some people booking this apartment is that one of the bedrooms does not have a door, there is a thin curtain and the room leads directly onto the kitchen/sitting room area.
