    Positive: Convenient location to transport & city.

    Negative During my 21 day stay, cleaner did not vacuum rooms once.Cleaner Used dishwasher for only three dishes daily (waste of water) and once flooded floor of kitchen area by not closing door properly.

    Superb

    The room combinations, studio, 1 bd & 2 bd suite all variations of family dynamics. Rooms are well equipped. Location is superb, close to trams, shopping and city attractions.

    Very good

    I like the location in the center of the city with reasonable price. The room is big enough and clean for 4 of us to stay at the apartment and also equipped with good flat screen tv with lots of channels.

    drying machine is not working well

    Good friendly staff. We come from the country and rarely stay in the city. Lf l do say so myelf, we are fairly ignorant about about some of the modern systems. The staff were supportive and kind (probably despite what they were thinking!) Thankyou for a comfortable and luxurious stay. L'll look forward to staying with you again....perhaps with some people from my work-place on the next visit.

    Superb

    The hotel was in a very convenient position in the City. Easy access to the venue we were going to. The rooms were clean and it was a nice room to stay in. I did like the express checkout.

    Did not like the parking arrangement. Website had little information on what to do with parking. I had to ring them. Did not like the lift from the parking area. Seemed old and dangerous to me.

    Very good

    Convient location & good value

    We had to lift up the couch cushions and it was full of food and dirt and hadn't been cleaned there for months which really left a bad feeling that things were only superficially clean. Pity the staff woke us up early in the morning to find out if there was anyone in the room.

    Staff were very helpful. The apartment was nice and enough room for us and 4 visitors. Very close to China town and within walking distance of the city and loads of lovely restaurants.

    Good

    Friendly reception staff, good location and comfortable apartment.

    Apartment lacked crockery and cutlery, eg it could sleep 6 in total, but there were only 3 dinner plates and we had to ask for more cutlery (only 2 forks, 3 knives when we arrived and were only given 2 more of each).

    I really liked the location, so close to the city and restaurants. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very comfortable and stylish, and the spa and pool area was lovely.

    One small thing I didn't like was poor water pressure in the shower.

    The room I have booked is a two-bedroom apartment. I like the environment of the hotel, the view from our apartment is nice. The design of the hotel is awesome and the rooms are big which made us feel comfy to stay there.

    The sofa bed was broken.
