The location I thought was a little far from the city centre with no access to trams or buses near by. Seemed a bit removed with not a great number of people around that area, seemed like a run down suburb with nothing on offer. It was fairly close to southbank on the river, which was great, atmosphere was great there, and we could see the flames from our apartment.
We were given an apartment that faced the apartments in the next building, so we didn't use the balcony. The inside of the apartment was excellent, clean, no complaints there. Had unlimited internet access for $40. The windows go right to the floor in the bedrooms (although not great when looking at your neighbours).
The pool was aparently supposed to be heated, but it was like ice!!
The place were we checked in down the road was like a run down real estate office, not a good first impression. Cost of the apartment was very reasonable though.
Next time we will stay in the buzz of the city where all the action is.
