Just back from a 3 night stay here. All our emails were answered promptly before we made our visit by Kim the manageress.. There is an onsite reception open 9 to 5 including Saturday opening. We arrived on a Sunday. We had arranged for someone to let us in at 4 p.m but unfortunately that person never arrived as promised to us on two occasions. Luckily we were given a phone number before we left home and after several attempts at phoning this local number we eventually got through to the person who should have been there to let us in. They arrived within 5 minutes and showed us around the apartment explaining everything. I wonder what would have happened if we did not bring the phone number or our phones with us.
Our apartment was located in the centre of the complex. Lovely and quiet. There were six enormous windows letting in lots of light but most were sealed shut. They reminded me of the windows that were in my school back in the 1960's. You enter the apartment block and room with the same electronic card. No bolt on the door to lock yourself in at night. The ceilings were about 14' high and temperatures in our room were kept at 20 degrees during the day and 18 degrees at night with good air circulation. However it did feel chilly in the evenings but we were unable to heat up the room in any way.
The apartment was spotless. Everything was new and appeared unused. Nespresso machine with some pods available plus some teabags and sugar. No microwave but there was an oven, hob, dishwasher, washing machine, hoover, ironing board, etc.
The bathroom had soap, shampoo and good quality towels, Big shower, the floor a little slippy. Great taps and plenty of hot water. There is a room service every couple of days to top up towels, toilet rolls etc.
Big comfortable bed but the most uncomfortable pillow that I have ever slept on. It was a big chunky thing. I felt I was sleeping sitting up. In the end I slept without it.
Huge TV with over 20 channels including BBC1 and BBC 2. Great wardrobe space.
The location of these apartments is superb. Right on a quiet corner of the Vrijthof. There is a large supermarket just around the corner where you can purchase fresh milk and other breakfast bits and pieces but with all the restaurants less than 100 yds away offering all sorts of specials you don't need to be cooking yourself.
I really liked these apartments and would definitely return.
