I stayed at SACO @ Livingbase for my birthday celebrations in Birmingham recently.
We arrived at SACO mid-afternoon and were greeted by friendly staff who showed us to our apartment. The apartment was LOVELY; bright, big, clean and airy. It was a lot bigger than we expected - 3 double bedrooms over 2 floors. There was everything we needed included at no extra cost - cooker, fridge, microwave, iron and every other appliance you could imagine.
Before going out in Birmingham for the evening we had more friends arrive for a couple of drinks - the apartment held 10 of us very comfortably indeed as there was an 8-seat dining table and a lovely big terrace to use. Our 'visitors' had a good nose around the apartment and were equally impressed! Once we decided to go out for the night, the staff were more than happy to arrange our taxi into the city centre.
After a night of dancing and drinking we arrived back at the apartments - the gentleman on duty was lovely (I don't think I'd have been so nice at 2am to a group of drunken women)! And you know when you get home after a night out and you just want to EAT??? Well, that was no problem as we could literally fall out of the apartment on to Birmingham's busy Broad Street and had our pick of places to eat!
The whole experience was great and myself and the others who stayed have vowed never to use a hotel if there is a SACO Apartment available...they just don't compare. The price when divided by the number of occupants is cheaper than some of the budget hotels but with a feeling of luxury!
I want to live in a SACO apartment...so much so that I have booked again for a night out in October 2012 and again for a birthday outing in November (bearing in mind I live about 12-15 miles from the apartments). I will definitely use SACO when I visit other cities too.
If you want a great experience with all the facilities you need and more, I would definitely recommend using SACO apartments to anybody. ;o)))))
