I stayed with 3 girlfriends in a 2 bedroom apartment for 2 nights. We were impressed with the spacious living area that had 2 comfy couches as well as a 4 seater dining table. It was great to get home from a big day of shopping to be able to relax in comfort with enough space for us all. The kitchen is OK but under-equipped. We didn't really cook anything apart from breakfast but there were only 2 large plates so we had to make do with side plates.
The location is good, right next to Chinatown and an easy tramride to other parts of the city. The beds were comfy and bathroom was large and quite adequate for what we needed. It was clean on the surface but on closer inspection it really does need a good thorough scrub in the corners and on the grout etc.
Onto our big negative - when I was cooking breakfast on our first morning I opened the oven to keep something warm and it had a tray of cooked chicken wings inside! How long they had been there I don't know but this shows that the cleaners do not do anything above a quick wipe over. It was disgusting. I then went to put something into the dishwasher and it was full of water on the bottom and it was stagnant so stank terribly. It had obviously been there a long time. We went to reception and told them and they said they would get someone onto it straight away but they didn't even bat an eyelid - obviously this sort of stuff isn't unusual.
Overall, the location is very good, the size of the apartment is a big plus but the kitchen stuff is really inexcusable.
