I booked this close to a year in advance and was absolutely stoked with the location.
No Lift - Two weeks prior to my travel they emailed to advise that the lift was out of order. In that timeframe there was nowhere else available to accommodate my family of 4 nearby. The lack of lift was a massive inconvenience as we had to take a stroller and two small children up/down 5 flights of very tight and narrow stairs anytime we wanted to go out. There was plaster everywhere so we were covered in white powder every trip we made. They were not prepared to offer any sort of refund for the inconvenience (though did admittedly leave us some treats). The men working on the building helped us out a lot.
Noise - There are signs up warning you that you'll be kicked out if there is any noise so I lived in fair of disturbing the neighbours. This rule of course didnt apply to the neighbour who would get home at 4am and blast his stereo.
The layout - Take a good look at...
