My wife and I booked a Studio Apartment for August/September 2011.
On arrival, we were allocated an "apartment" that could only be described as a storage room.
The room was 16ft x 10ft, at the rear of which was a bathroom which was a mere 4ft wide. We could easily put our hands flat against opposite walls without straightening our arms, and it was impossible to open or close the door if someone was standing at the sink.
The only window in the room was 3ft high by 6 inches wide, and was located at the side of the kitchen sink, so that, in order to look out, it was necessary to climb onto the sink draining board!
The only other natural light came from a frosted glass panel in the top of the door.
The "spacious" terrace (as described on the website), was 2ft wide at the narrowest point. On complaining at reception, we were informed that we had only booked a "Standard" Studio, and not a "Superior" one.
Silly me, for not realising that it was necessary to book a "Superior" apartment in order to get a window!!
After complaining for 5 days, we were eventually moved to a moderately larger apartment.
During our stay at Rainbow, we discovered that approx. 50% of the ground floor apartments faced on to either another apartment directly opposite or on to a blank wall!
