            • Older travelers

              It was close to transport and food outlets / restaurants.

              It was very noisy on Friday and Saturday nights with the nightclub crowd and sleep was very much disturbed. I couldn't recommend it unless you wanted to be part of that scene. On Sunday night it was very noisy with the sound of roadworks outside the apartment & enquiries indicated that this had been going on some time & would continue for some time. It wasn't suitable for a business trip.

              We were located in the Queen Street annexed building, which is in desperate need of refurbishment. In our one-bedroom apartment there were bare wires hanging from a ceiling light fitting; only three coat- hangers in the wardrobe; dirty, cracked, chipped and mis-matched crockery and cutlery; moldy tiles in the shower cubicle; badly stained carpets and furniture; no a/c or fans in the bedroom; an old tv with only a few stations, some of which had no sound. The binmen were very noisy from 5am each day, in the adjacent alleyway. This was a sub- standard, over-priced apartment in a shabby, smelly building....nothing like the photos suggest.

              The staff were helpful. Location good. Room Facilities we comprehensive.

              Guest format was 2 bedroom for 4 adults. We received 1 room with a queen and 1 room with 3 singles. Frustrating, as we had booked a roll away bed for our 5th traveling companion at extra cost that we didn't end up really needing. Although we would have been happier to incur this charge if both rooms had double or queen beds. Television reception was very poor. Channels limited and some had no sound at all.

              Excellent CBD location, fantastic value for money and nice, spacious 3 bedroom apartment.

              A little bit of noise was coming through from outside the building but other than that there was nothing that we didn't like about this property.

              Location, room size, facilities.

              The staff were abrupt in their explanation of the room and the $200 'holding deposit' we had to give them upon arrival. They seemed annoyed when I requested clean towels be brought to our room, after I thought our room would have room service each day (as it said on the website and also in our bathroom) and I placed our towels on the shower floor. Also, the option of wi-fi internet was quite bizzare - $13 for 2 hours of unlimited, or $20 for 24 hours but only 200gb? Surely they can do better than that!

              It was just like home. Good sized living room. I only stayed one night and did not use the self catering facilities.

              Outside noise was a little annoying. The airconditioner was fairly noisy too.
