Checked in OK, they require you to write your Credit Card Number on a piece of paper..(weird thing number one)
Then informed it's $5.00 to park your car (no choice as one hour limit parking meters out front are the only alternative)
They give you a plastic card (entry key) which then allows you entry to a subterranean series of cave like rooms. The first is a carpark, entered from a little laneway via a roll a door after dithering around with the plastic card and a dodgy looking scanner. You then scan again to gain entry to a second carpark (WTF?) which then leads to a fire door/passageway and then another fire door, turn a couple of times, open another door and then into the elevator. Only one more fire door after getting out of the elevator and you are ready to scan yourself into the apartment. These seem like student accommodation, and the place is probably a former warehouse. They've done an OK job, although some double glazing is necessary due to street noise. Bathroom and toilet have 6 inch steps in the entrance, (another oddity) Lime green walls are a shock, TV's are old CRT's, and confusion reigns with the internet. Staff are OK, quite friendly and overall it wasn't a bad experience, just a strange one.
