“Good location, but...”

We stayed at Studio Barracuda in April using Nice Pebbles to book. We had used them a few years ago in apartment Risso which was excellent..

Barracuda is well located and the Nice Pebbles team are helpful.

The studio was just passable re cleanliness, but items like coffee mugs were dirty and stained, our rental person replaced a filthy and scratched Teflon frypan and a dirty, unuseable teapot. The fridge was tiny and had no freezer. The furniture was illmatched and looked like a cheap holiday let rather than a costly French apartment.
There was a noisy neighbour playing music and talking loudly until about 1 am most nights..

The wardrobe was small and insufficient hangers. Also, old blankets wre stored in there and in a kitchen cabinet. The coffee machine had no instructions and a couple of complimentary capsules would have been nice. Stains on skirting boards from leaking fridge. Walls were quite marked. Dishwasher leaked. All in need of a good tidy up and re paint.

If this place was repainted and furnished nicely it wouild be a much better deal.

The Nice Pebbles site has plenty of other places from which to chose.

Liked best: Location and siz eof apartment. The balcony was fine.
Liked least: Huge bed which totally filled the small sleeping alcove. A Queen bed would have been better. There was no room to move around one side of the bed neccesitating my partner having to climb over me to access the bed, etc.

Thanks for taking the time to post this review.
We're a little disappointed that we seem to have let you down this time around following your great experience at our Risso apartment.
We've already discussed your feedback with our owner and this week we'll be assessing and buying things that are needed like coat-hangers, new mugs etc.
We're also now looking into the decor to see what can be done. Studio barracuda has been with us for over five years, and both us and the Owner accept there might be a few improvements to be made. This has been reflected in the price we are offering Barracuda at in comparison to others, but some improvements are afoot after the Summer.

We hope to be welcoming you again soon.
