The photographs and the floor plans for the one bedroom apartment on the web site did not reflect reality. So it was not as spacious as depicted.
Fancy design but not very practical for an apartment. Leather seating not very practical or comfortable - settee pretty worn. Glass tops to tables not secured so risk sliding off. No drawers in the kitchen so worktop space used for utensils. Why?
Shower head not working properly, connection to taps leaked and no single controller of water temperature so risk of scalding. Shower screen did not fit so water leaked over the floor.
Staff helpful but seemed to be only one on duty at a time for the whole set of apartments.
Only there for a couple of days so ok for that but I would try to find an alternative for anything longer. Not value for money for me but others may find it ok.
