Good value clean and tidy with good undercover parking. We were on level 4 so the traffic noise and especially the rubbish trucks was a major issue. Very small bedrooms and bathroom with no bench or storage space whatsoever. We got what we paid for and would like to have a higher budget and choose somewhere better next time. Average... More

Firstly it was a truly good value for money and our party of 9 adults and 3 children managed very well with 2 units of the 2 bedroom apartments. The fact that there are only 2 apartments on each floor meant that we basically... More

We recently stayed here for 8 days with our 13-year old son. Even before we arrived, our communication with the apartment managers was excellent. We told them our flight was arriving early in the morning and we asked if we could leave our bags there until check-in time. They did their best to make a room available for us immediately,... More
