A great visit for the New Year. Was blown away by the apartment, service and city! Everyone was super accommodating and for the price we were shocked at how luxurious the apartment was. We stayed in the classic apartment - only feedback is the bath can be a little slippy as there are no rails. Further, the bathroom was a little cra

Amazing Self-Catering Residence
My partner and I stayed here for a night for her birthday and we our expectations were exceeded. The property is on what appears to be a residential building with some private residences. The residence itself is a one bedroom apartment equipped with all standard amenities (including dishwasher) and extras (coffee maker), a mini bar (water, beer, whiskey, sodas) and complimentary welcome bottle of wine (we got a white wine which we swapped with a red from the mini bar which my partner preferred). There is breakfast available which is good to have; unfortunately these is a continental, uncooked (fruit, cereals, etc.) option only and we'd have preferred a cooked breakfast. Overall we'd give the residence a 9/10 and we'd recommend it to anyone. Whilst we stayed for only one night it's really the king of place more suited for longer stays of, perhaps, 3 nights and longer. I booked it about two days before our stay so it was comparatively more expensive for what we got (the cost is reflected in the standard and amenities at the property) so do book well ahead! Overall verdict, give it a try if only once especially for that special weekend away.

Great place to stay. Minor maintenance required.
We stayed in an amazing apartment. We booked the two bedroom that was located on ground floor just under reception. Only comments would be the mattress in the room closest to back of apartment next to kitchen needs to be replaced. The mattress is sagging and very uncomfortable. Other item was that bathroom in bedroom closest to street side. The shower water ran under glass wall due to seal not properly seated. This caused the bath floor. To accumulate water and did not drain properly. The hotel staff was amazing. The bar is great. The location is excellent. Maintenance on sleeping comfort and bathrooms is required. Also, pillows were all heavy and hard. A variety of pillows or at least one soft pillow for back sleeping would have been ideal.

Wonderful home from home.
If you want a little more privacy and room that a 5* hotel offers, this is a wonderful home from home. Have already booked our next stay - say no more!
