Excellent location, amazing staff, phenomenal views. Me and my husband stayed here for a few nights. The staff were polite and welcoming and. We had a room on the 17th floor facing the bullring. We could see for miles. It was very peaceful, couldn't hear noise from other rooms and people we did come across were friendly. The rooms were... More

We stayed for three nights in a "Mini" studio apartment on the 19th floor. The facilities were great! The choice of two different kinds of coffee makers, citrus juicer (with oranges!), free bottle of wine chilling in the fridge, down to the oil, vinegar, salt and pepper made it perfect for self catering (we bagged a few bargains in the...

Hi Davsar99 Thanks for your review. It's great you made the most of the terrace, especially in the hot weather. Apologies for the litter, we are communicating with residents about this. I'm glad it didn't get in the way of your experience. We all love the sun-loungers (it is great when the sun shines and we get to put them... More

Three of us stayed here last month for an event that we were attending at the ICC. Although we enjoyed it, I think for the money, I wasn’t 100% impressed so my review is very mixed. The positives: - Amazing views of the city - Very comfortable bed - The apartment is serviced really well; you literally have everything you... More

The apartment was immaculate, beds extremely comfortable and location couldn't have been better. We had the penthouse apartment - value for money this is an exceptional city centre property. We will definitely use again!

Really cute apartment. So nice to be able to get up when you wanted rather than worrying about when you have to make a hotel breakfast. Only downside was no bowls in the room for the complimentary cereal + the door was a bit fiddly. Otherwise just super.

We stayed for one night but wished we could have been there for more. The location could not be better with the parking instructions making it easy to find and effortless. Really friendly staff who gave us a warm welcome and could not have been more helpful. The room was spectacular with views of the city that were genuinely breathtaking.... More

It is a bit of a pain to get to as the entrance is in the middle of a shopping mall which was compounded by the fact that I was driving there. However once you have got over those minor hurdles the experience is well worth it as the view is stupendous. We had a small studio with a well... More

Stayed here overnight to catch up with an old school friend. Fantastic central location just outside New St Station, warm welcome from staff and amazing apartment on 17th floor with great views. Spacious and well designed with many well thought out additions e.g. fresh oranges to squeeze, real coffee, milk in fridge and ice in freezer. We will definitely return... More
