Really welcoming and accommodating staff. Very impressed with their customer service. Apartment is a good size and in a really great central location with everything in 5 or 10 minutes walking distance. Central markets are very close and you can get great breakfast/ brunch lunch/ coffee etc.

The room was great, I was upgraded to a 3 bedroom apartment at no additional cost. Heaps of room. Decor was a little dated but still clean and comfortable.

The door was hard to find, was on the side indented Into the building- hard to see. The staff were kind of friendly but didn’t seem happy to be there. The room was okay, the heater had a strange smell- bathrooms were tiny. Bed was comfy Lounge looked very worn Not too bad. Thanks!

The staff at check in and check out were very nice and property was clean. Friends and I were staying in an apartment on the second level at the front of the property which was quite noisy, could clearly hear both pedestrian and street noise which didn't make for a restful nights sleep for any of us..

The location was great having good access to the CBD. The staff that checked me out had attitude. Tried to talk over me all the time, preemptive of the conversation I was trying to have with her. I wanted to report a blown light bulb but she wouldn’t let me talk, at times treating me a like a fool. Also when I asked about the held funds, it was like she was ticked off with me for asking. We were in room 207 right near the lift: DO NOT EVER LET TAKE THIS ROOM. The lift for the floor, is right outside your bedroom window, so when anyone at night is waiting for the lift, they talk and it wakes you up. Why do you need a window there? Seriously??? I mentioned this and she blew me off. Not the best experience, and would not stay there again.
