My husband, me and our 2.5 year old stayed for 6 nights in a two bedroom apartment.
Great location. Central market and China town are only 5 minutes walk.
It looked modern and clean. The beds were very comfortable.
Basic items like shampoo, conditioner, body shower, dishwashing liquid and a scourer should be included. It is ridiculous that you find out about this on the welcome letter.
There is a building next door under construction and they start at 7am. Our windows were looking straight at it! Even the windows are double-glazed you could still hear the noise. Management should have mentioned it on their website.
We were staying on the weekend where the Rolling Stones were supposed to perform, and for that reason the prices suffered an increase on that Saturday. It shouldn't be allowed, but we had no choice but to stay, as every single hotel in the city was doing the same.
On our first night there was a noise that seemed to come from above the bathroom ceiling. I reported it to reception and within 5 minutes a maintenance person came to have a look and fixed it, so for that I give good points to the staff.
There is a washing machine/dryer in the bathroom that it was impossible to work out, as everytime I wanted to use it as the dryer, the clothes came humid so I ended up putting them in the balcony. An instruction book would have been helpul.
Overall it's a nice place but it needs improving.
