It's furnished with the basics really, all you need. You're paying big money though to stay there, as it's student accommodation, paying just shy of €3,300 (inc. €300 deposit). Overall it's a nice place, spacious rooms, double beds and decent desks. It's a shame really that it could go from being an overall average accommodation to a high quality one with just a few changes. The main one is the internet. It's expected that you're not going to get lightening fast internet when sharing with 400 other students, but you should at least be able to hold a basic connection. More times than not, I have to stop and reset the internet and troubleshoot problems to get back online. This can happen 4 times a day or 4 times an hour and sometimes cuts out completely for portions. A lesser commodity would be the television. We're offered a decent set of channels including Sky Sports 1 and a Sky Movies channel among around 20 others, but given the smallest TV set to watch it on. I'd suggest spend a bit more on the TV's and push up the price a bit to compensate. Damp is a minor problem as well and the windows really fog up sometimes with the only remedy being to open them, but in recent weather, renders it out as an option. A summary: Decent, comfortable apartment, reasonable facilities bar internet and TV size. I'm living in a 3 bedroom apartment by the way, which is cheaper than the 6 bedroom which also comes with en suites, can't comment on those apartments though.
