The rate we got on booking.com for a 2 bed apartment was good but the cons outweigh the pros.
The dryer didn't work in the apartment. We were told to pay for the one downstairs as they wouldn't repair it.
The fridge didn't work either which meant all out food went off. We told reception who said that there wasn't much they could do as they were fully booked and couldn't move us.
The website states that all rooms have air con but this only applies to superior rooms.
Waiting 15 minutes for an elevator because the staff were using both to visit every floor was annoying.
Getting into the carpark is a nightmare. You can see how many cars have crashed due to the black marks on the walls. The parking is $18 a day. The wifi works great but again you have to pay $10 a day. We didn't eat breakfast as we were too annoyed with paying extras.
The area is good which is the only positive.
All in all you get what you pay for if you just need a place to sleep.
