I took a 3 bedroom apartment. Although spacious (as you would expect), there were things not up to standard.
There was a large crack in the plaster wall in the enterance hallway. Bathroom cabinet door fell off in my hand when opening the cabinet. Lampshade fell off the base, just by opening the window (which was obviously broken on a previous time). It was such that I was afraid to touch anything at first.
You must take notice of these things when you rent this type of apartment, as it's a bit like renting a car, if you bring it back with a scratch on it, they take it out of your bond.
That said there were many good points. The pool and gym (although small for a building this size), never seemed busy.
Location is also good, being about a 10 minute walk to both the Mall, and Chinatown.
Would I stay there again......., probably not.
