Overall an average stay. Location was spot on. Apartment room could do with a deep clean especially to have the air cons professionally cleaned as they were mouldy. Shower head in second bathroom needed replacing and dryer did not work. Considering the time of stay (7 nights) a midweek clean should have occurred however it was mentioned that this only occurs if your stay is eight nights or longer.
