“Disorganised 1 hour check-in”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

After waiting approximately 40min in front of the door of the apartment for someone, we were told there was an issue with the booking/apartment (unclear), and had to walk to their offices, to wait another 30min in order to change apartments. We were told we were given an upgrade apartment, however I know that this issue was already raised by someone 3 weeks ago, and it appears nothing was done.

Did not appreciate the lost time when we were only there 2 days.

This said, excellent location. However good value for money only if you get the 50% discount price which we got. Otherwise frankly, not worth it.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

The apartments are tucked away but they are in a fantastic central location with plenty of excellent restaurants nearby and all the main attractions within walking distance. Our room was; en-suite with shower, had a double bed and a very small kitchen. It had everything we needed for our city break, the only strange thing is that the lift goes through the bedroom which is the reason for such a small kitchen – it isn’t noisy and didn’t disturb us.
