          Great value for money. Large rooms

          There was a bright light that shined through the blind in the front bedroom. This was from the lights outside the apartment as they were all left on overnight on each level. But as we had two bedrooms we just slept in the other room

        • Older travelers

          Significant improvement in bar/restaurant area since we first stayed there about three years ago. Again, extra cost for apartment rather than hotel room well worth it for a city break in January. Staff friendly, facilities excellent, apartment kept clean.

          Noisy function on Friday night, but stopped at midnight, so fair enough. Bedroom width a bit tight, but there are doors on both sides.

          Staff were all excellent and eager to help. Location to station and shops was great. Hotel design was impressive.

          Maintenance required to room. Door under sink needs hinge tightened, floor in dinning area is bowed and iron was missing (staff fixed this last one in 5 minutes).

          Lovely spacious apartment, attractively presented. Very comfortable beds. It worked well for a celebratory family weekend.

          Lighting was good for atmosphere but not bright enough for reading.

          We loved the convenience of having a kitchen, dining room and living area. There were 2 couples who could come together to eat and be separate if we wanted to be. The location was great and very near to public transport. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay.

          Das Hotel befindet sich in einem alten Lagerhaus aus dem 19.Jh. das in ein Apartment-Hotel umgebaut wurde und ist schon deshalb sehr speziell. Unsere Wohnung war sehr geräumig und mit voller Elektronik ausgerüstet (TV, DVD, CD, WiFi). Dazu auch eine Küche, die wir ausser zum Tee kochen allerdings nicht benutzt haben (sogar eine kleine Milch stand im Kühlschrank bereit). Die Lage ist sehr praktisch, in Gehdistanz zum Zentrum und vielen Restaurants.

          The staff were very friendly and helpful. Excellent location. Good facilities.

          Room was not as clean as would have liked (although staff immediately offered to send someone up to sort the situation out) - got this room on excellent deal, would have been upset if had paid full price.

        • Family with children

          The apartments were enormous, very comfortable and nicely designed. The staff were extremely polite, helpful and nice. An excellent place to stay and we were sorry we didn't have longer to enjoy the apartment. Would definitely return. Apts are well positioned for the Piccadilly train station and metro/trams.

          Everything excellent except the water pressure in the shower.

          A couple checked into my room at 11.10pm. The hotel had accidentally given them a room key for my apartment! When you have an 8 year old in bed, this is not good. The apology received was pathetic. Very annoyed by this mistake.
