I recently stayed at this flat for two weeks with my wife, grandmother, and one year old daughter.
The location is excellent. It's in a beautiful and quiet residential area, not a lot of touristy stuff around but you can easily walk or take the metro anywhere you want to go. There are several metro stops on a couple of different lines that you can walk to in moments. Great bakery and a few nice cafes right downstairs, two grocery stores in the area, and a bunch of decent restaurants.
The apartment itself is a good value. There are three nice sized rooms, a bathroom, separate WC, and a kitchen / living room combo. You could comfortably sleep 6+ adults here. The included washer / dryer combo in the unit is a nice bonus for an extended trip, especially if you have little ones. The negative about the apartment is that it wasn't especially clean when we got there: it was a bit dusty and the furniture and flooring is fairly old and worn. Also the refrigerator didn't seem to keep anything cool.
The booking / check in process was a difficult and trying process. I had to fax numerous contracts & documents, try to deal with wire transfers, checks, deposits, etc. They set up a time for the apartment manager to meet us at the flat based on when our flight would arrive, but we ended up getting to the apartment about an hour earlier than they thought we would. Unfortunately this meant sitting on the sidewalk with all of our bags and a baby in the rain.
It's possible that it's just this difficult for any international apartment rental, but it's definitely something to consider when choosing between booking a hotel room and an apartment. In the future we'd probably still choose to book an apartment if we're traveling with children; the extra hassle is well worth the conveniences that come with it.
