The receptionist was good- honest and practical. The flat was decent - spacious and good shower, but the equipment were not ideal (dodgy hairdryer, no oven, smelly microwave, old and tired mattress....)

It was good home environment with day to day facilities of fridge, micro, iron etc made available to you. The rooms are spacious and its around 10 mins away from the Central station. While the electronic gadgets are made available to you, basic needs like soap, tea, coffee needs to be bought/carried. Overall a great stay. Much better than a... More

Great location. The family room had four single beds in one big spacious room. Comfortable with kids. The kitchen had all the equipments. The exhaust is not great for foods that let out lot of steam. The place is towards end of street with off street available parking. We booked parking within the basement; however parking management is quite poor.... More

We booked this the day before on line, because it looked like really good value. I was a bit dubious, because I have stayed in these kind of apartment complexes before, and they are often rather dingy and unloved. And this wasn't 100% wonderful - some of the lightbulbs were out, and the decor was a bit bleak, but it... More

I've staying with be-housing before but this is the first time I had the One bedroom Apartment. It was good to see the TV has been upgraded and the Wifi works. The Apartment was very clean and the staff were helpful (we arrived outside the normal Check-in times). It's a good location and excellent value for money. We would stay... More

This premises is located just 7-10 mins walk from Central Station, it located on a quiet street, so there are very minimum amount of traffic and no nearby night-life establishments within earshot. I had stayed at City Apartments sister building opposite before - the Budget Flats so I was familiar with the facilities and accessibility of the premises. The check-in... More

I booked this apartment for my family (me, my wife and 2 daughters) for 2 weeks after looking at the photos on the Internet. It turned out that photos on the Internet are deceiving (at least for the apartment we stayed). The actual place was old, filthy and smelly. The neighborhood was not the best - it is an area...

First off, the studio is rather large and pretty centrally located. It comes with a small kitchenette with a hob and microwave. There's a bathtub. There's also a small TV, couches and a double bed (which was really two single beds pushed together). The person in charge is quite rude. Check in is only allowed at certain hours 9am-12pm and...
