In such a good location. Great parking. Great flat. Swansea is a great vibrant city with loads to do in the evening. Flat is quiet although can be hot in the sun. Access not a problem. Clean lift. Clean flat.

Stayed June 2013, traveled as a couple

Centrally placed, three minutes walk from all the main bars, but the apartment is very well double glazed and is very quiet inside. English breakfast at Wetherspoons including tea and toast £3.19! Excellent parking. Excellent free museum about 6 minutes walk away.

Access is by key fob which worked perfectly, but some of the access "buttons" had to be simply pushed rather than use a key fob and that is why the key fob wouldn't work! Although wifi was present I didnt understand how to connect in this case and used personal hotspot on iphone.

Make sure you read and follow the detailed instructions well before arriving in the area. You may need to make a phone call an hour before arrival.

Everyone was very helpful.

No shortage of bars and real ale in many.

Leave your car behind and take a train trip to Neath and back and visit the interesting covered market and take lunch in the Castle Hotel, Neath.

Room Tip: Pleasant town and distance view from our balcony.

Very happy with apartment on arrival. Everything was clean and tidy and was able to have a brew on arrival etc. Having two children with me and my mum i think the location of these apartments could not be better. had looked at staying near the marina area - but as we wanted to be near the centre for eating out etc this was definatly the right choice for us. At night you can cross over to the vue cinema or go to one of the many good restaurantes just round the corner from there.

The apartment was just right for my latest business trip to Swansea. After 17 years I have stayed in most local hotels and it was great to find A Space in the City. I have already re-booked for another stay. The location is great, apartment well equipped and Paul, the Service Manager took care to check me in first time.

Room Tip: Talk to A Space in the City toi get the right apartment location for you.

The apartment is fully equipped and very comfortable.
I enjoyed in the evening the wonderful view on the marina.
Great location. A big supermarket open 24h, leisure center and beaches: all very close.
The manager is very supportive. I was there for business and it has been an excellent choice.

The apartment was very good, clean and tidy.
nice view to the city also it is located in the city center.
the pickup keys structures was clear as I arrived after 6pm I picked up the keys from another location which is around 500m.
The only one drawback is that there wasn't enough toilet paper as the only one in the bathroom was in its end. Anyway it didn't cost my a lot to buy toilet paper from the 99p store.

Room Tip: the apartment number is 501

Thank you for your review, we are really happy you liked the apartment and enjoyed your stay in Swansea.

However I would like to apologise about the lack of toilet roll in the apartment. There should be two toliet rolls per bathroom provided as standard so this was clearly an oversight by our staff to which they have been updated to ensure this doesn't occur again.

The apartment was lovely,very clean and a really good position,near the marina,beach,shops and restaurants, excellent Italian just across the road. We stayed in Swansea for 2 nights and went there both nights.We couldnt fault anything except the rugby we were there to watch!!! Wrong result!!. Would definitely stay again if we were to go to Swansea.

Hello Pam,

Thank you for the review, we are really gutted that the rugby didn't quite go to plan as well !

We are really happy you loved both Swansea and our apartment and hope you return to Swansea again, maybe next time we will get a good result with the Rugby!
