We had a 2 room apartment on the 7 th floor which was while a bit oddly shaped, comfortable and spacious, with a large balcony, dining area and sofa, very comfortable beds and relatively quiet. I have given an average rating because while we paid good money for... More

I hadn't been to the CityLife for a few years but was very pleased to have been booked here for a conference recently. Although I don't travel as much as I used to, CityLife was always a favourite and this trip felt like coming home. The rooms are comfortable and spacious - I love having a full-size dining table on... More

This hotel is very well located centrally and is quite nice. It is not a five star hotel but is certainly excellent and the service is beyond reproach. Any and every query we had was dealt with promptly and effectively. Top marks.

We stayed in a City Life Apartment for a weekend. As there were 3 adults the two bedrooms and lounge were ideal. Spacious and central apartments and clean and comfortable. Having stayed there some years ago I noticed that it is definitely time for a refurbishment but otherwise highly recommend.
