We’ve been successfully hosting for nearly 3 years now and are about to bring our second apartment on line.
This new apartment is located in the very heart of the city - it is an absolutely fantastic location but the downside of being so central is that street noise is inevitable, especially at the weekend as there are quite a few bars on the street and people do stand outside smoking and drinking.
We do have good triple glazing but the building is over 200 years old so some street noise can be heard in the bedrooms which do face the street.
We have never had an issue sleeping but then we may be used to it a little. I have drafted the following to include in the listing - would appreciate feedback on whether this adequately highlights the potential ‘issue’.
“As the apartment is so centrally located, some street noise is unfortunately unavoidable, especially at weekend . We do have very good glazing installed which cuts a lot of this out . The two double bedrooms face the street and while we have never had any trouble sleeping, if you are a light sleeper you should be aware that street noise is to be expected, especially at weekends as there are many restaurants and late opening bars in the area around our apartment. We do provide ear plugs just in case.”
