Overall awesome, location was great, but aircon in the lounge room and main bed room did not work, which made our stay a little uncomfortable in the middle of summer 😞

Excellent location with the movie theatre 39 metres away. Lovely check-in staff. The wifi is slow and not unlimited is our only downer. The best thing about this location is the peace and quiet, slept like a log because we could not hear a thing. Wonderful.

Dear Primo, Thank you for taking time to review your stay with us. The fully self-contained apartments are like having a home away from home. The Central Precinct is at our door step and the city is just a short stroll away. We hope to be able to welcome you back in the future. Kind regards, Central Holborn VIVO Property

The location is great . You need to get rid of those very uncomfortable lounge chairs and give decent internet access

Appartment was stale smelling, kitchen was dirty. Requested a cot that was not provided, staff were rude. Wifi is terrible and can not be used as it doesn’t load and keeps dropping off. Would not stay here again. $200 holding charge taken at check in told this would be refunded on leaving still waiting. Would not stay here again.
