Other things to note
Just in case you want more space (e.g. in case of a group of friends or if you want a kitchen for cooking) the apartment can get bigger and add a kitchen :)
This is possible because “Studio 51” can be joined to the adjacent and bigger “Studio 52” (please have a look at airbnb/rooms/(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)).
Each Studio is totally independent, but they share the same entrance hall; so keeping closed the entrance hall door and keeping open the doors of both Studios will create a unite space with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 1 kitchen.
The parking car ( available and supervised 24h every day) is only 200 meters far. Is not free but my guests can benefit a Special price: 15€/24h (instead of normal price 2,5€ every hour)
No big rules, just treat the house like your home! ;)
By the way smoking is not allowed inside the studio, only at the window-sill.
