Was travelling with two friends and given the lack of "family" type suites which cater for odd numbers of guests at regular CBD hotels, I took a chance on a "mystery" hotel and was pleasantly surprised.
This place is obviously geared towards business travelers on extended stays. The building is very new and clean with the apartments being roomy and with full kitchens for those wanting to look after their own meals. Not a very "warm" atmosphere with the décor leaning towards industrial greys, but everything was well constructed and clean. Beds were very comfortable and bathroom was functional without being oversized like the rest of the apartment.
Location is almost ideal, with plenty of dining and drinking options right outside on Darby Street. Underground secure carpark has access from the rear of the building and it can take a bit of finding in the narrow back streets. My room was situated at the rear of the complex and I didn't notice any street or traffic noise. Large outside deck area is ideal if you need fresh air.
Tarriff not unreasonable given the size and quality of the rooms. Reception is not staffed for standard hotel hours so if you are planning an early checkout or late check-in, would recommend prearranging it. Owners manage a number of other "executive apartments" in the city and would expect a similar standard at the other properties.
