The kitchen is well fitted out with new, modern appliances. 

Atmosphere:
????
This comfortable ninth-floor apartment is at the back of the building so you don’t get noise from the street. There is also an elevator, so there’s no great climb involved in getting to the front door.

Utilities and service:
?????
This is where this apartment stands out. The owner provides free water, internet and cable TV, which is a big saving. Standard charges apply for electricity and a laundry service is available.

Security:
?????
There are security guards on duty 24-hours a day and this apartment has CCTV cameras installed. There is a very high level of security  at this building.

Location:
????
This apartment is near the German embassy, close to a very big local market, a short walk from the popular Lucky supermarket and in a great location for anyone working in the city.

Value:
????? 
The owner is asking for US$520 per month, which is great value for this modern apartment in this location. There is also the added incentive of free water, cable TV and internet.

Furnishings:
????
There is a very comfortable, soft sofa, solid timber furnishings throughout, a flat-screen TV, a good, comfortable bed and marble floor tiling. This is one very comfortable apartment.

Maintenance:
?????
The owner has just had all the appliances checked and everything is in fine working order. All of the appliances are less than two years old, but if something does go wrong, the owner also has skilled tradesmen on call to fix anything that needs doing.    
              
As always, my rating system is based on an innovative five Star rating system.
