Atmosphere:
★★
This is a large, two-bedroom place that has windows in all the rooms, a great balcony and views over the central part of the city, the Independence Monument and parks.

Utilities and service:
★★★★★
Standard charges apply for electricity. The owner, however, provides free water and cable television and a high-speed internet connection is available at a standard rate.

Security:
★★
There are security guards on duty 24 hours a day and this apartment has the added benefit of being on the fifth floor. It is also located in a very central part of the city which is considered one of the safest areas in town.

Location:
★★
This classy apartment is in one of the best locations in town, only 100 metres from parks and very close to the Independence Monument. Everything from shops to restaurants and supermarkets is within easy walking distance.

Value:
★★★★★ 
The owner is asking for US$800 per month, which  is excellent value for this large, two-bedrooom apartment in such a good, central location.

Furnishings:

This is the real strong point of this apartment. The two beds are good quality, there is a nice soft sofa in the living room, there are six good chairs and a large dining table and the kitchen is well fitted out with plenty of storage space. There is a Samsung TV and washing machine, there are ceiling fans throughout and the two bedroooms and the living room have air-conditioning.

Maintenance:
★★★★
The owner has just had all the appliances checked and everything is in fine working order. 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.
