positive:

Good alternative to a hotel

Many previous guests have found that these apartments offer a good alternative to a traditional hotel. Although not perfect, the apartments offer pretty much all of the conveniences of home.


Negative Reviews

negative:

Limited availability of staff

Although these apartments are serviced, the set-up appears to be that you collect your keys from a safe for which you will be given the code beforehand. Some guests had problems accessing the safe and were unable to gain entry to the building immediately. They were ultimately helped by other guests rather than staff who couldn't be located.

negative:

Some noise issues

Although the central location puts many shops, bars and restaurants within easy reach, it does mean that there is some background noise from the surrounding streets to contend with. Some guests also mention internal noise although this will likely depend on who is staying at the apartments at the time.

negative:

Disappointing Wi-Fi

Reviews highlight that there is an on-going problem with the Wi-Fi here. Many guests comment that they were unable to connect to the Internet and those that did get online often say the connection was slow and unreliable.
