There is a bit of wear and tear, with stains on the carpet and some wear on the kitchen cupboards but everything functions fine and the kitchen is well supplied. Very central and a 5... More

We stayed here for 5 nights with our 2 young children. We stayed a Saturday night which was so noisy that we were still awake at 2am. Not the fault of the apartment as the noise was coming from a nearby club but being on the 17th floor I didn't think it would be that loud. To make matters worse... More

The hotel is located right next to Seaside on Northland (sort of opposite Crown complex) and right in front of the Rialto tower. We had a big apartment with a big lounge, fully fitted kitchen, A/C, heater, big bathroom with laundry, dining table and little side desk for business. As the hotel is located in an office tower - offices... More
