The location of the residence, above a modern mall connected to the subway is ideal; there are always taxis out on the back road as well, away from the Ring Road. The upscale supermarket and Asian food court downstairs meant we didn't need breakfast -- but those who need something before the mall opens at 9:30 might want to stock up their kitchens.
The rooms are spacious, well-appointed in a stripped-down modern style, and quite comfortable. We had a one bedroom Premier suite which had only one bathroom (we thought it would have a powder room plus a full bathroom), but we understood that this allowed for a standup shower as well as a tub, which was our preference. The views from the room allowed for great sunset views and a very urban feel.
Internet was fast, the staff very kind and helpful, and housekeeping was well done. My only wish would be that the kitchen had a few extra plates and cups -- and a bigger dish drainer -- as two of each item was not enough, even for just two of us.
We would happily return here for a longer stay: it was great value for money and super-convenient as a pied a terre in a fantastic city.
