Roaches. Not hot water. Reception closes at 8pm.

Good location. Ample parking. Affordable.
Arrived a little past 10 pm. Reception office was closed. Called the emergency number listed on the door. No one picked up after 4 attempts over 30 min. Eventually had a call back around 11. A very nice lady showed up in a cab and sorted out the two rooms for us. Once into the room. Notice at least 3 roaches wondering around. About 2 cm in size. Wanted to take a shower, but there wasn't any hot water. Hot water was not available until 8am the next morning when the office opened again. Although this was a last min booking for us, the place is a bit below average, definitely can't associated it with the 7.5 rating we saw on the website.

The hotel was unmaintained run down and shabby.

Best thing was leaving.
The first room we were put had broken radiator heater that could not be turned off. Room was intolerably hot in the middle of summer. We were told to open a window! Next room we were put in was above a unit with tape around it saying " danger do not enter". Rooms were dirty, poorly maintained, old and grotty. I paid for a dump. Very unimpressed.

Quiet hotel off the main city centre.

Quiet area with a common spa and spacious room and walking distance to the main city area.
We were let down by the shower area with just a shower curtain resulting in often wet floors and the inconsistent hot water flowing. The area leading to the rooms were not brightly lit and they had only sensor lights. However the staff was friendly and helpful. The kitchen seems to be fully equipped but sadly we didn't make use of it as we ate out all the time.

Worth the price

Centrally located; kitchen facilities; large room
Location is superb; room is clean and neat with reasonable size; we stayed in the studio room and it has a kitchen with basic kitchen facilities in it, including hot plates (even though they are very very slow to heat up), pan, oaster, dish plates and some cutleries. Supposedly there is free wifi provided but we had problems accessing it with the access code we were provided, and we did not bother since we had enough cellular data on our phone.

Amazing value for money! Would highly recommend!

Clean, close to shops, private courtyard
Very impressed with the cleanliness of the room. Fantastic location. A little dated but for the price was exceptional. The private courtyard was great! Would highly recommend to everyone

Comfortable, spacious and relaxing apartment

Near attractions, comfortable, convenient
Stayed one night in 2 bedroom apartment. Living room was spacious, with TV area, dining table and 2 extra beds with partitions. Kitchen was clean with adequate utensils. One bathroom to share, and clean. Nicely decorated. Concierge provided us with small carton of milk, and coffee and tea were free to make in the apartment. Felt very relaxed.
