3/5 Okay

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The staff and general manager were very nice, and if the review were on them, I'd give 5 Stars. However, the review must help potential future guests and here is our experience. 1. Correspondence with the hotel was difficult and responses were not timely. 2 The rooms, especially the bathroom, are in desperate need of upgrades and deep cleaning. 3. There was never anyone at the registration, we got to the hotel, security had to call the manager and then the manager though trying his best to be helpful couldn't

It’s a nice hotel/apartment complex. Rooms are dated but are clean and very spacious. It’s very well secured and is located in a safe and fun area. We stayed during the pandemic and I think a lot of small issues were related to that. The pool and the common area of the hotel was closed. Kitchen was also closed. Because I pre-paid for breakfast, that was slightly inconvenient. Instead, they arranged breakfast at a nearby cafe (and it was pretty good). We could order delivery or go to the place ourselves. That said, I didn’t find out about it until our second day because there was no reception at the hotel (just security) and no one explained what was working and what was not. They sent me a WhatsApp message about breakfast arrangement but I rarely check WhatsApp. I understand that pandemic creates restrictions and appreciate the property trying to work around it

Simply the best!
Apartment is large, clean, modern with good Wi-fi, quiet and just about perfect! Communications are dealt with straight away and any small problem is similarly fixed within a short period. I cannot recommend this place any higher as is basically the next apartment I have stayed in wherever I have been. Enjoy!
