This property is substandard. We stayed a month in questionable setting. No contract, no complimentary walk through or shopping tour as advertised. Kitchen is not fully equipped - we tried to bake a pie and subsequently were informed baking function in ovens in building were disabled as not to get fire department involved as apparently had happened in the past. Cutting knife couldn't even cut anything. We had to buy not only cutting knife but also wok as there was no frying pan. The outlet in stove to plug microwave in didn't work so there were not enough outlets for all electrical appliances provided (hot water, toaster, microwave).
Caveat: no air conditioning so we're practically sweating. And believe it or not, we were placed on top floor of 4 floor building with no elevator. Imagine carting suitcases and stuff up the many flight of stairs...
The beds have the cheapest mattresses I have ever slept on - and do not fit a regular 6' person. Squeaks, both our backs aren't the greatest as a result.
Mail service unreliable - we got notice from post office two days after notice was dropped off/left.
There was no contract. No information sheet. At time of check in, superintendent showing apartment didn't know how phone system - incoming calls and voice mail - worked or our code for it. Key to back of building didn't work so had to walk from parking lot around to front to enter building. All sorts of inconveniences. Frankly its not worth the money spent.
Do not construe this as bitter gripes but rather, 'from the horse's mouth' on our observations. Undoubtedly we were disappointed beyond belief.
I wouldn't call this a hotel so disregard hotel-related questions that Tripadvisor requires.
