Amenities & Room:
Couch and master bed were adequate but have stayed in more comfortable accomodations for the price
The condo is perfect and as great as it looked in the pictures
it would be nice to have a dresser or chest of drawers in each room
" I decided to just use the couch pillow one more night and appreciated the effort
I eventually got a call and text that second night I was told " I will drop off new pillows in the morning
I was never contacted again and no pillows were dropped off Total poor form
The condo and building are very nice and had everything we needed
In fact we are trying to find out what make the mattress is Top recommendations
Furnishings were good not great
The actual check in policy is a little weird to say the least I am familiar concierge check ins but
I received daily emails and several text to confirm my check in
The apartment was clean spare but met our needs and Max was extremely responsive to our every need
A good choice with an excellent location right by a metro station
Just made it a little difficult to get ready
and not a big deal
A little unusual way of getting the key and into the place
but once we did it

This is a comfortable and spacious apartment with every amenity
Very clean and has a great view
Great location and very nice accommodations
was somewhat more tired and grimy
We stayed here with our two teenage daughters and loved the location as well as the beautiful outdoor pool for relaxing between sightseeing
Every thing was great except I had difficulty contacting the property owner and having the address supplied
and so we did not find out what they would do if they did find out The photographs of the apartment
The apartment block is nicely located on the north side of the city centre within walking distance of some great restaurants and the "360" tower
did not represent the actual apartment that we stayed in Ours
We were also provided with a cover story in the event that we were challenged Fortunately the building owners remained blissfully ignorant of this
We were somewhat perturbed by the need to sneak into the property through the car park so that the management of the apartment block remain unaware that the landlord is sub-letting the property (th...
