Atmosphere:
?????
There are great views from the large balcony on the fifth floor, and this apartment is designed to make the most of natural light with lots of windows that also let in the breeze and keep the place cool.

Utilities and service:
?????
Standard charges apply for electricity. The owner, however, provides free cable television, free internet, free water and free garbage collection. There is a US$20 per person per month charge for laundry, which is very cheap.

Security:
?????
There are security guards on duty 24-hours a day, plus CCTV. The mostly expat neighbours say the area is very safe.

Location:
????
The apartment is close to the German embassy, which is a popular area with expats, and it’s only a short walk from shops, pharmacies, supermarkets and restaurants.

Value:
????? 
This is great value. The owner is only asking for US$850 per month, which is quite cheap for a quality apartment in this area. The apartment is well laid out, well lit and nicely furnished.

Furnishings:
?????
The furnishings are a highlight of this place. There is an electric stove, refridgerator/freezer, microwave and plenty of storage space in the kitchen. Both beds are solid timber, there is a nice timber sofa and chairs with soft cushions, both bedrooms have air-conditioning and there is a new flat-screen TV as well as a desk and chair.

Maintenance:
?????
The owner has just had all the appliances checked and the apartment is only one year old. If anything breaks down or stops working the owner has tradesmen on call to come and make repairs. This owner takes pride in his place and any repairs get done quickly.

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