Atmosphere:
★★
This third floor apartment is extremely spacious, with impressive views overlooking the leafy neighbourhood and nearby park, lined with large trees.

Utilities and service:
★★★★
Standard charges apply for electricity, water and cable. The apartment is internet capable and can be easily connected through the owner, if required.

Security:
★★
There are security guards on duty throughout the night at the gate to the building. Expat neighbours say the area is very safe.

Location:
★★
The apartment is close to the National Museum, which is very popular with the expat community. And it is only a short walk from attractive nearby shops, pharmacies, and restaurants.

Value:
★★★★★ 
The owner is only asking for US$550, which is extremely reasonable for a fully-furnished apartment in the area.

Furnishings:

The furnishings include all the essentials and a little more. There is an electric stove, refrigerator/freezer, microwave and adequate storage space in the kitchen. The bed is solid timber, as is the wardrobe and two chests of drawers. The living area includes a timber sofa, with cushions and a quaint table and chairs, facing out the window. The bedroom and living area are equipped with a/c and there is a Sony TV

Maintenance:
★★★★
The owner has recently checked all the appliances and takes pride in the maintenance of this tidy apartment. If anything breaks, he will contact the technician for appropriate repairs.

As always, my rating system is based on an innovative five Star rating system.
