What is your housing like? What are typical housing sizes, locations, and commute times for expatriates?

Post just switched to an unfurnished housing pool. Mostly apartments, commutes are fairly easy -- 20 minutes or so. Like most of Europe apartments are on the small side, with limited storage though some have a storage room available in the basement. Our apartment is new, modern and very nice but there have been glitches. The main issue here is we switched to an embassy housing pool but the embassy doesn't have adequate staff to handle maintenance. Traffic is light and public transport is good, so there are many good options for areas to live -- housing tends to be spread all over. - Jan 2020
