Hi Eric, I don´t know what kind of smell you have notice, because i am living in this place also, and haven´t notice any small at all, and all apartment is few mounts ago refurbished. there is a only one thing i have to fix and that is shower in cabin. I have clean after you apartment and there wasn't any smell, so please if you can clarify me this point.
About the noise in the night is true because i have mention this in description of apartment but maybe you haven't read it well. but this apartment is in centric area and that is why i have spend a lot of money installing sound proof glasses on the balcony doors and windows.
I am sorry about your bed experience in this apartment, but you could mention me this once you arrive so I can go to apartment with you and see and smell it on my own.
