My friend and I stayed in the apartments located 3 blocks away thurs 7th - sun 10th Nov.
Good value for money, great location and very modern and clean although you could tell where perhaps previous guests hadn't looked after the place so well I.e ring marks on the kitchen work tops etc. There was also a strong musty smell of smoke as soon as you open the door. I myself am a smoker (i go outside) but even i found it hard to find any clean air to breathe! I would highly recommend the hotel forbids guests from smoking in these apartments.
You have to check in at the hotel which is absolutely fine but there was no help down to the apartments with our luggage or even just to show us to the building. We also were not made aware that we could have breakfast at the hotel if we liked until we decided ourselves we may try to see if we could. Something which would have come in handy to know especially walking around in the cold early when not a lot of places open till later.
The apartments are close to a bar which got very loud at times. Not ideal after a tiring day of adventuring and sight seeing.
This review does sound more negative than anything but I do have to say we did love our stay (and we weren't on holiday to spend all our time in there anyway) the above few points are just a couple of things to consider. I still would stay here again, maybe just in a less noisy / smoke smelling apartment.
