Each apartment has central heat, air-conditioning and comes with basic furniture including:

  • Four regular-sized twin-size beds (not extra-long) already made up with linens. There is also a spare set for each bed available in the closets of both bedrooms.
  • One dresser and one night stand in each bedroom.
