We have just got back from staying 8 days at the Short Stay location on City Road. This was our sixth stay with them. During this stay we had a 2bdrm apartment on the 22nd floor which provided great views. While the apartment was a little pricy, we were staying over during the Tennis Open and so expected to pay more than normal, as seems to be standard among most places during this time period.
During the stay we dealt with various staff who were all helpful and friendly in making our stay enjoyable. Nothing was ever a trouble when we contacted them for several different enquiries. Having stayed with them before we knew that the apartments were only serviced every 7 days, but to us this was not a problem as the apartment comes with its own laundry facilities. We also like the fact that this means you don't have cleaning staff trapsing through your apartment everyday just to 'spruce - up' the room.
With anything though, it pays to read the information provided on their website to ensure that you know what to expect from them, as the Short Stay aren't a 'hotel-apartment' chain type accommodation and have been in the past, marketed more towards longer term stays. Having stayed with the Short Stay at their various locations on now six occasions, we would not hesitate to recommend them to others.
