Stayed here this week as a last minute decision, location is great , fantastic value for money but wouldn't go back there , the rooms were in desperate need of a lick of paint , a lot of damage to walls and doors, the apartment smelled very heavily of bleach which was worrying , shower ceiling was peeling , if...

I paid extra for an executive room. It was far from it:- - The dishwasher door would not close and I was unable to shut out the sewer-like smell coming from it. - The washing machine was still going after 12 hours and covered my clothing in gunk. - The bed was so bad my partner slept on the sofa....

Have to say that the 'apartHotel' is a real nice idea. It's a lovely feel to have outside of my own home. Specifically this one tho, if your looking for somewhere to stay for the night, it's great. If your looking for somewhere to stay for a while, maybe not. A dodgy/overflowy shower, a bedroom door that wouldn't close, a...

After doing some research into booking accommodation for a night in Manchester to see Peter Kay we settled on these apartments. We booked through late rooms and got off the train at Picadilly and headed over to the apartments, on arrival at the Manchester Central ones which was what was stated on out confirmation we were told we were booked...

To those who feel hotel rooms are not enough, apartment like this shall give a warm and pleasant stay as home. We stayed in one premium bedroom apart, 3rd floor for more than 10 days. It's quite relaxed, very clean, well equipped and fit to purpose. It worth to say a compliment to the front desk staff, who made everything...

This ‘aparthotel’ is meant to be 5-stars and, if that is the case, I have doubts about the integrity of the individual(s) who evaluated the property. The apartment was thrown together in the cheapest, most shoddy fashion one can imagine. Think laminated flooring, empty walls, and awful mattresses. The rooms aren't soundproofed well, with my bed overlooking an alleyway that seemed...

Stayed this weekend with a group of friends and was impressed. We were able to request early check in at a small extra cost meaning we could drop off bags and get changed before going out. The rooms were spacious and luxurious. The living space was nicely done and had everything you'd want. The kitchen with amenities were a great...

We've booked for a long period for our holiday. During our stay we felt very unsafe to continue there. Groups fighting and screaming in the corridors during the late hours of the night. My wife and I DIDNT FEEL SAFE to stay one more night. When booking we requested an early check in (our flight landed early in the morning),...
