We stayed three nights in a deluxe studio apartment.
The location of the hotel was convenient, close to shops, restaurants and public transport. The wifi was fast and hotel staff were friendly and helped us organise our SkyBus transfer. There were however a few minor problems with the room. More attention could be paid to cleaning as when we arrived there was some hair stuck to one of the pillows on the bed and the carpet had a few stains. The king size bed was two singles pushed together and while the mattresses were soft, lying in the middle where the two edges of the beds met was uncomfortable. It could be a problem if you are staying with a partner like I was. The beds may as well have been separated because we both found ourselves sleeping on our own side of the bed. The toilet paper fixture in the bathroom was loose and the shower head was not a rainfall one as described on the website. My tub of Ben & Jerry's melted and went to waste due to the freezer compartment in the fridge not being cold enough. We also received two calls from another room in the hotel because the number they dialled rang our room instead of reception. We ended up unplugging the phone for the rest of our stay to avoid having to answer more of the same calls.
Apart from these details, I enjoyed my stay at the Citadines. I would most likely stay here again if the problems I experienced were to be addressed, due to the price and convenient location of the apart'hotel.
