Stayed 3 nights in July with my husband and 2 year old son, for a sightseeing trip of this lovely and child friendly city. We'd picked Stay as we really needed cooking facilities and space to hang out once tired toddler was snoring away the evening. Stay worked really well for this purpose and we were kindly given a 2 bed apartment even though we'd booked and paid for a 1 bed. Given the bedrooms weren't massive I'm really glad we had the extra room for the cot.
The apartment itself was spacious and well equipped for a short stay (full kitchen, washing machine, etc) and some handy details (Rituals toiletries, washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets supplied for example). The bed was super comfy and the blackout curtains brilliant in the light nights. It was a very hot weekend but the apartment was reasonably airy with all the balcony doors open.
I imagine some of the design details might get annoying if you stay here long term (really uncomfortable metal chairs (but thankfully good sofa), no bottle storage in shower, very little clothes hanging space, etc) but for a short break none of this mattered and we enjoyed the novelty of the monochrome, urban design.
I have to mention the building site noise...the plot next door (and others nearby) are building sites and excavations seem to begin at 7am on weekdays (cue loudly chugging lorries, drilling, etc). Obviously that won't go on forever but don't imagine that by being a bit out of the town centre the location is quiet! Luckily my son is obsessed with diggers so was absolutely delighted to be able to watch them at work.
We used the excellent supermarket downstairs for all our groceries and the gorgeous Emmerys bakery for pastries and coffee.
The location is definitely not central so you have to be prepared to walk. A bus stops nearby and takes you to central station/Tivoli and we never waited more than 10 mins. We also used the harbour bus which isn't very frequent but was on time so you don't have to wait long if you plan ahead! Highly recommend that for getting to The Little Mermaid. It's a bit of a trek to the Metro (a good 15+ mins with suitcases) for getting to/from the airport.
Overall Stay was the right choice for us and it's facilities made up for the out-of-centre location.
