The place outside of the rooms was dirty and completely uncleaned, the elevators were old and slow, it felt like a 2 star hotel, but the rooms were such a good value! Our room was perfectly clean and the privacy and spaciousness of it completely compensated for the exterior situation! Think it was definitely worth the price!

No receptionist, but no access problems as the front door was left open and the combination to the safe is written in a guide pinned on the wall. Flat was all decrepit, unclean, broken and, well, crap. Kept my shoes on, didn't touch anything unnecessarily, ate out, slept badly outside the bedclothes, had cold shower in the morning. To cut...

Firstly, this is not a hotel! It is advertised as managed service apartments. There is a difference. I booked the night before via a popular late booking service and the price was good. I booked what was described as a Studio for two people. I was travelling alone for business for one night. On the day of my arrival I... More

Spent 2 nights here (was supposed to be 3 but flight delays made me late) 3/24/2015-3/25/2015. Good luck to you if you're arriving outside of shortened business hours, I lucked out because there was another guest walking into the facility that showed me the secret code to get into the place and to open up the safe deposit box that...

I had made communication with the hotel prior to my stay. I was emailed information on how to get in and get the room key. This worked like a charm! The apartment was lovely and clean. Updated bathroom with heated towel rack and very warm. Kitchen had new appliances as well. Fully equiped with washer-dryer combo, and dishwasher, newer fridge... More

I booked this through Lastminute.com and did not receive the safe number and door combination the hotel said I should have had as I arrived at 7.30pm after a long day at work. I managed to gain access to both after calling a helpful man named Chris. The Apartment stunk of food, was filthy (brown fingerprints on light switches /... More

Arrived at about 8.30pm , freezing cold and no one is around. The confirmation email from Lastminute.com didn't explain the checkin procedure. Apparently I should have received an email with a safe combination for the keys. I didn't receive any further emails. Luckily a kind gent who was staying there got me the safe code and my key was in... More

I wish I did, I would have avoided. Its OK, but the website sets up you expectation that in my experience made the actual visit disappointing. It was dark, noise, bleak, well worn and the best bit my bedroom door handle came off and I had to get a colleague to open the door in the middle of the night... More
