we stayed for a week at the "micro" condo in the historic Janion bldg.;it is a really cool loft style condo;with modern features,great views and a wonderful location.
it is walking distance to any number of pubs,restaurants,shopping,and numerous
tour and attraction connections;we made the mistake of renting a car;would have been a lot happier not having to drive in the downtown area;it's becoming really busy and we can get bottleneck traffic at home.We highly recommend this accommodation for any couples visiting Victoria and Bohdan is a genuine nice person and a very gracious host.
Initially we were quite happy with the apartment. Location was great, bath and kitchen looked great with all new appliances and fixtures. The apartment could have been a page out of the IKEA catalog. Floor space is limited however and the unit could do without all the love seat pillows.
After provisioning and getting settled in we were looking at where things were located and found a drawer full of utensils but no pots or pans. I inquired with Boh and was advised that they had previously had an "issue" and do not allow cooking in the unit. This restriction should certainly have been spelled out clearly under Amenities.
When we inquired on all other issues Boh was very accommodating and promptly answered our questions and issues.
On the plus side, the roof-top common area (a short elevator trip) contained a gas grill and a microwave that allowed us to at least warm up leftovers and do a bit of creative dining.
All in all we had a pleasant stay, but the accommodations should be considered a hotel room with a Murphy Bed.
A perfect stay for my friend who was visiting from Australia. Cute and cozy with all the amenities!. I can't wait to try it myself when I want to stay in town "for a night on the town". Clean, efficient, fabulous views close to pubs, restaurants and shopping.
Bo was fantastic, he looked after my friends needs with an efficient manner.
My friend has already asked to stay for here next year!
This compact and efficient unit offers total comfort and convenience for singles or a couple. From the fantastic view of the harbour and Parliament buildings to the quick and easy access (15 minutes or less) to countless restaurants, shopping and other activities. Inside, the amenities are great from good cooking and refrigeration to a spacious standup shower. Modern lighting and a double door balcony provide an open and airy feeling highlighted by the 11' ceilings. The decor is "Paris chic" and everything fits into its own little space. The owners are friendly and accommodating. You won't be disappointed.
We had an amazing little getaway, the place reminded us of Paris! So conveniently located to sweet little cafes and restaurants. Everything at our doorstep and the experience was exceptional! Comfy bed, modern essentials in the kitchen, very well cared for suite. Our hosts Bohdan and Ingrid were so charming and accommodating. Thank you for making our anniversary memorable!
