“Just about alright”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

I stayed there in February 2013. Well firstly from Sydney, Parametta is a long way off. By cab, as well as by train, it takes considerable amount of time. The apartment building isn't very tough to find. It's about 5 minutes from the train station. Though at night the area looks a little unsafe, there's a police precinct just next door, so it should be safe.

As someone mentions in their review, this is an apartment and not a hotel. So there is no service to be expected. My room was a long narrow room, with all household equipments possible. The internet is chargeable, and mostly doesn't work well on the higher floors. My room was decently clean. The balcony overlooks yet another apartment, and not scenic view at all. The receptionist told me that calls to the room after 10 pm will not be routed, as it disturbs the residents. He was not very hospitable.

The stay was fine, they don't really clean the rooms much during your stay. And all utensils and dishes used must be cleaned up. The bathroom is small and has the basic necessities. Usually a stay costs about 150 AUD, which is quite expensive for this place. It's better to live in a dorm kind of place if you're not going to be indoors much.

This hotel is absolutely terrible! I would not recommend this hotel to my worst enemy! The rooms were filthy and there was urine in the toilet! The walls were covered in mould and the shower was growing mould. The carpet and blinds were stained and the toilet wouldn't flush. The basin sink was clogged and the room stunk. The hall way and the towela stunk like curry which was ansoultely horrible!! Hotel staff were rude and would not allow us to use more than 3 towels for a family of 5. Definately won't be coming back to this hotel and will definately not be recommending it to anyone!! The location was horrible and there was nothing convenient neat by! WORST EXPERIENCE !!

This was my second stay at Fiori over a two year period. Things have not been kind to the apartments- they are tired, somewhat run down and the general housekeeping was disappointing. The blinds in the room- just as said by many people before this review- were disgustingly filthy. There is no way housekeeping staff could not see what these needed cleaning. So, who is refusing to do this basic cleaning? Hmm...

Anyway, the recreational areas were also showing signs of poor up-keep. For example, a plastic water bottle that remained in the sauna over two nights, gym equipment showing signs of poor maintenance (is that rust?) and the spa- well, at sometime before I arrived, someone dumped some foam stuff into the spa so it frothed and foamed when the spa pump as activated. The spa was still bubble bath like on my fourth night. Feeling like a bit of a whimp, I didn't go in the unheated pool during my stay.

Now, while that all sounds pretty bad, I have to say the apartment was fine for my use. I hardly spent anytime in the room, partly because it wasn't set up to relax in but mainly because I was busy doing other things. The bed was very comfortable and the room had what you needed, including a washing machine and clothes dryer. There is also a sign in the kitchenette stating if you don't do your dishes before you leave, you may get hit with an additional charge (Huh??!!).

Would I stay here again? Yes but only if it was necessary. The Fiori is not a hotel (and does not present it self as being one) so I did not expect 4 star hotel comfort or service. It provides apartments and leaves you to your own devices. The accommodation served a purpose and for me served it adequately. It is just that it could have served it better.

Room Tip: If you want a sofa or armchair, ask for a room with one.

I have twice now tried to stay at this apartment and have always found the staffs phone manner to be absolutely appalling. To the point that I will never even try to book their again after they said they had a reservation and then telling us they were booked out the day I had booked for. Worst customer service ever. However after reading other reviews I guess we are lucky not to have stayed somewhere that sounds like a filthy unfriendly place.

Recently stayed here at Fiori, the worst place i've stayed at, the apartment was dirty, the dining table had stains, the tiles had grout, and the blanket in the wardrobe had hair all over it like it hadn't been washed from the previous stay!
It was a very plain and boring looking room, no effort whatsoever to make it more welcoming, no features, paintings on the walls, the blinds were dirty, the balcony was dirty, just everything was dirty.
Wouldn't recommend it to anyone, the staff are nice, but the rooms, very very different to what you see in the pictures on their website.
The pool area has walls that are moldy, the gym stinks! and really just not happy.
The bedroom had 2 single beds pushed together to make a double, it was just not worth your money.

I have stayed here several times and I really like it. The apartments are quite spacious and modern. It was a bit hard to find the Building at first, but sussed it out eventually. The secure parking was also a bit hard to find as they give you numbered spaces but the numbers are not in order so had to drive around for 10 minutes before I found my parking spot. I can't complain about the rooms, they are lovely, bright and spacious. Full cooking facilities which was great nd the bed was comfortable. Probably the best place to stay near Parramatta. I loved the big balcony too, that was a bonus. Enjoy your stay there, I do!!

Room Tip: Both rooms I stayed at were fine, they were on the 7th floor.
