We stayed with a large group of people who all booked separately so we were able to check out a couple of the different rooms. I was very happy with our room # 501. Although we didn't get the river view we got to see the hospital helicopter land 3 times! (some may not find that as exciting as we did) Our 1 bedroom apartment was obviously recently renovated compared to the 2 bedroom one across from us in 504. Our bed was comfortable but was a double compared to the king size in 504. We had a dishwasher, they didn't. (tho there was no dishwasher powder!) The staff were all very cheerful and helpful, even the housekeeping staff. The location was a plus being very close to the river and many restaurants. The most frustrating thing about this place is the one way streets that surround it. If you want to get to a place just around the corner by car, it will take you just as long by car as it does to walk as you have to drive in a 8 km square to get there. Our apartment included a big lounge room and dining table. Lovely kitchen with all cooking facilities. Separate bedroom and bathroom that included a washing machine, sink and dryer. Other non renovated rooms were just as functional but with the mustard colours in furnishings and wooden cupboards in the kitchen it just felt old and not as refreshing as our room. Other friends had booked just a room not an apartment and that was very small with a couple of beds and a table all in 1 tiny room and they only paid $60 less than us for the 3 days. I would recommend paying the extra to get the apartment. Overall we were very happy.
