Didn’t like the layout of the app, the fact that when walking in first thing is the bed. Also the bathroom wasn’t very private. The building is very modern. Customer service excellent.

IN love with this precinct and hotel/apartment complex. It's designer, beautiful and clever. It's well priced and generous in details such as shower product. The choice of book titles in the unit blow my mind - my favourite place to stay.
