Quartier résidentiel et calme. L'appartement est très propre et la literie est excellente. Vous êtes très bien accueilli par Mr Zahid, époux de Mme Joan. Il fera tout pour vous être agréable et vous aider si vous avez besoin. J'y suis resté une semaine et j'y retournerai sans hésiter. Merci à eux.
Easy and nice Stay! Had a great time over there! Little bit loud from the outside, but my sleep isnt that deep. Joan and her husband are really friendly and helpful, also the two other roommates! Thanks for the nice holidays!
Excellent! Place was clean, good quiet neighborhood not far from the metro. There is a small grocery store nearby and several restaurants too. Joan is a great host who genuinely seems to care about her guests.
