Noise can be a problem at night, especially around 2 am when the bars close. Also, the many transportation options can be tiresome - I am over the sound of rumbling trains. The apartments are a bit smaller, but are moderately expensive.
Although you will need a city parking permit (sticker), parking can still be a major headache. This is especially true on the weekends when many search through the side streets of Duboce Triangle for free parking.
