There has to be more info about the apartments such as which floor and is it a steep climb or easy does it have an elevator etc as sometime people are not capable of climbing very steep stairs such as the one in the idyll apartment in Dublin street, and apartments a floor map is a very important addition as it helps I identify the best fit especially with families with kids

Product

It’s expected that with very good company good service although the apartment is good and has all the amenities but it’s expected that they give the same attention to the cleanliness of the place especially the toilets and as expected there has to be more amenities provided with the apartment especially to get you going if you are booking it for 7 days or more at least like toilet paper or even garbage bags

Easy to communicate, service was very efficient. Check-in was easy & pleasant, despite the fact that we arrived quite late due to a cancelled flight.

Product

The flat was wonderfully spacious, bright, and attractively & comfortably furnished. We really loved the location - close enough to walk to everything, but distant enough from the busiest, most touristy areas to get a real neighborhood feel.

A couple of suggestions to make a great stay even better: as a previous reviewer mentioned, the bedding was bargain aisle polyfill pillows and comforters, which was a surprise considering the high standard throughout the rest of the flat. Also, we were a bit surprised that no toiletries were provided in the bathrooms except for hand soap. In our experience it's very unusual to not be provided with at least starter size shampoo and body wash. But those are small things. Overall, we were extremely pleased and would certainly rent this flat again.
